In the nineties of the 20th century, there was a rapid growth in the number of applicants for Polish universities. Unfortunately, this favourable situation didn’t cause any structural or curriculum changes. Traditional geography curriculum remained obsolete and not adapted to the challenging Polish labour market.
Unemployment, which also hits people with higher education, is one of the major socio-economic problems in Poland. This unfavourable situation is caused by the wrong conception of higher education which doesn’t prepare graduates for employers’ requirements.
