Exchange year in Poland

The exchange year programme in Poland starts in August and ends in June of the following year. There are three main seminars throughout the year, all of which are held in different regions of Poland, allowing students to visit and experience more of what Poland has to offer.

The year begins with a 2-week language course. It takes place in the Imperial Castle of Poznań, where YFU Poland’s office is located. At that time students get to know the basics of Polish language and culture.

In January, all exchange students and their host siblings meet for a mid-year orientation. During this two-day event they summarise their progress over the past six months and visit some of the most important parts of the city, learning about Poland’s rich history.

Last but not least, in springtime all students and their host siblings spend one of May weekends at a re-entry orientation.This event wraps up the students’ exchange year in Poland and prepares them for their journey back home.

Let this year be the year you discover Poland.
