The University of Wroclaw (UWr) has a rich history of more than three centuries. Founded by Leopold I Habsburg, it evolved from a modest school run by the Jesuits into one of the biggest academic institutions in Poland. After World War II, a group of Polish professors, formerly from Lviv (present-day Ukraine), started teaching and research activities at UWr.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, the university has produced 9 Nobel Prize winners. Today, it is one of the best universities in Poland, and has over 30 000 undergraduate and graduate students, including 1600 doctoral students. UWr is a prestigious research center.
Several thousand scientific publications appear annually as a result of the work of highly qualified scientists involved in more than 280 research projects, which become the basis of cutting edge inventions and patents.
The University is a member of 9 scientific networks and 13 scientific industrial consortia. The core group of about 400 professors, including lecturers from international universities, play a key role and guarantee the highest level of education. 8,000 students graduate from the University every year.
Wroclaw University has 10 faculties offering a wide variety of subjects, taught in Polish and English language, including 80 Bachelor’s and 67 masters programs with around 250 specializations. They cooperate with many universities from within and outside of the EU under international learning programs such as Erasmus+, Erasmus Mundus, ISEP and CEEPUS. Exchange students usually spend a semester or two at the UWr. Many of them, impressed by quality of teaching, come back to continue their education further, as regular full-time students.
