The University of Wrocław has a rich history of more than three centuries. Founded by Leopold I Habsburg the university evolved from a modest school run by Jesuits into one of the biggest academic institutions in Poland. Today, the first and foremost focus of the University of Wrocław is scientific research.
Our scholars have numerous links with their fellow researchers from other higher education institutions in Poland and throughout the world. Like in most countries, in Poland the national quality assessment system is part of a national strategy for improving the quality of education. Every four years the Ministry of Education evaluates faculties of all Polish universities. Last year 9 out of 10 of our Faculties were qualified in the highest category and one was the second highest.
Today the University of Wrocław is the largest university in the region and teaches over 26,000 students and around 1500 doctoral students at 10 Faculties. Almost 8000 students graduate from the University every year.
