Undergraduate (1st cycle / Bachelor)
Graduate (2nd cycle / Master)
All tuition and study payments at the Maritime University of Szczecin should be paid in PLN. The above PDF files contain all detailed information about tuition fees (per year) for degree programmes offered in Polish and English language at the Maritime University of Szczecin (MUS).
Studying in Polish language
Basically, foreign students studying in Poland in Polish language
need to pay for their education. However, there are exceptions that exempt from tuition fees the following groups of foreigners studying full-time programmes
- The citizens of the European Union (EU)
- Holders of the Polish Card (PL: Karta Polaka)
- Foreigners who passed the State Certificate Examination in Polish as a Foreign Language at minimum C1 level - examinations held by the State Commission for the Certification of Proficiency in Polish as a Foreign Language.
If you do not belong to one of these groups, you will have to pay for studying at MUS. However, the tuition fees charged by the Maritime University are not high. MUS is a state university which means that, similarly to non-profit organisations, its offer is not strictly commercial.
The annual fees charged by our University depend on the programme
(sea-going programmes are more expensive than other, non-sea-going degree courses), the level of study
(the undergraduate level is usually more expensive than graduate level as it takes 7 to 8 semesters, whereas graduate level takes only 3 to 4 semesters) and the mode of study
(you always have to pay for the part-time programmes but the annual tuition fee depends on your status).
Studying in English language
Currently, Maritime University of Szczecin delivers only few degree courses in English language (they are highlighted in the above PDF file). Please, pay attention to the fact that the price for EU citizens and holders of the Polish Card is greatly reduced as they are treated equally with Polish citizens. Foreigners from outside the European Union who are not holders of the Polish Card have to pay the full tuition fee.
Additional costs for students of the seagoing programs
Students of Navigation, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics and Inland Shipping have to pay extra for International Medical Certificate for service at Sea
: approx. PLN 400 (approx. EUR 90) which is valid for 1 or 2 years depending on the doctor's decision, and for the Seaman's registration book
: EUR 50 which is a one-time fee. These fees are paid in external institutions, i.e. a medical clinic and the Maritime Office in Szczecin.
