For over 70 years it has taken the lead among pedagogical higher education institutions in Poland, and it is also the oldest Pedagogical University in Poland.

Our educational provision enables students to apply to several dozen fields of studies in first-cycle (Bachelor’s) and second-cycle (Master’s) degree programmes, as well as in third-cycle degree studies (Ph.D.), and post-graduate study courses.
