A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. A master's degree prepares students to lead or manage. A master's degree also prepares a person for a range of pursuits through specialized study of a field.
The Arts involves programs of an abstract nature, and typically universities divide the schools of Arts from schools of Science. The benefits offered to the community by the arts are more creative and geared towards intellectual thinking.
Like many other EU countries, Poland offers inexpensive or even free tuition to EU students. Prospective students should apply directly to their chosen Polish institution. The University of Warsaw, for example, charges between £1,300 and £2,500 per year for its English language courses.
