About

History

After the Congress of Vienna in 1815 Warsaw became part of the Russian Empire and Tsar Alexander I was crowned the king of the Polish Kingdom. On the initiative of Stanis?aw Kostka Potocki, who led the Committee of the National Education and Beliefs, and of Stanis?aw Staszic, Tsar Alexander I, the Royal University of Warsaw was established on the strength of the decree dated 7/19 November 1816.

Education

The reform of the higher education  in Poland was a starting point for determining anew the strategic goals and directions of development of the University. It was also an impulse for mapping the current situation and reviewing the fundamental documents, including the Mission and Strategy.

Research

In 2005 the European Commission adopted a European Charter for Researchers and a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. These documents, addressed to scholars as well as to their employers and research funding institutions, are key elements in the EU's policy to boost researchers' careers by creating an open and transparent labour market.

Career

Since 2000, it has been participating in the ERASMUSprogramme, and since 2014 in the ERASMUS +, offering opportunities for studying abroad. Students also have the possibility to be awarded national scholarships at 19 Polish universities in the MOST student mobility programme.
