University of Gdansk

Gdansk, Poland
The University of Gda´nsk is a dynamically developing institution of higher learning, and one that combines respect for tradition with a commitment to the new. We offer a very wide range of academic subjects, and an equally wide range of subjects that lead to professional qualifications in demand on the job market. An increasingly large proportion of students pursue their studies in state-of-the-art facilities on the University's Baltic Campus, which is one of the largest university complexes in northern Poland.



The University of Gda´nsk was founded on 20 March 1970. It was formed from an amalgamation of two institutions of higher education: the Higher Economics School in Sopot and the Higher Pedagogical School in Gda´nsk. Later, it also included the Higher Teacher Training School.


The University of Gda´nsk provides education in 73 fields of study, comprising 217 specializations, in day and weekend studies, at the level of first or second cycle studies, or within comprehensive (long cycle) five-year master’s programmes. Every year new fields of study are developed, and every effort is made to adapt our programmes to the needs of the job market.
