The word “Uniwersytet” in our Polish name 

The change of category is another step in the development of our universities, it expresses our broad, universal profile of education and academic activity. We were granted the right to use the word “Uniwersytet” in our Polish name due to the high evaluation results of the WSB-DSW Universities Research Federation of which we are a member.

We are an university. We prioritise both the practicality of the knowledge and skills that we teach and cooperation with the public. The student and their needs are of paramount importance to us.

The high ratings we received in as many as 8 disciplines from 3 fields entitled us to change our category and use the word “Uniwersytet” in our Polish name.

Changing the category opens up new opportunities for us – we have obtained the rights to confer doctoral and post-doctoral degrees.

We can develop a broader educational offer that will address the needs of candidates, current students and the labour market even more effectively.
