In the academic year 2018/2019, there were 21 higher arts education institutions of which 19 were public. The curricula included 72 different fields of study. The total number of students amounted to 16 813 – 1,4% of all students in Poland.
Examples demonstrating the implementation of the Bologna process in Poland are visible especially on the administrative side of education. Many higher education institutions have modified their systems of evaluating students’ work. Since the academic year 2004/2005, university graduates receive special supplements to diplomas which contain detailed information about their education process, exam results, qualifications and also the number of gained ECTS points.
Thanks to the implementation of the Bologna agreement, several institutions have been modernised. One of these is the State Accreditation Committee which monitors and evaluates the quality of teaching in public and private universities.
Other positive impacts of the Bologna process include the increasing mobility of Polish students and many pro-European elements have been added to the curricula of arts and humanities faculties.
