Kazimierz Wielki University
Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz
Name in Polish:
Uniwersytet Kazimierza Wielkiego w Bydgoszczy
Founded in 1969
Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz is a dynamically developing school of higher education, today the largest in the city and the second largest in the Kujawsko-Pomorskie Province, both as for number of professors, number of majors and educational forms offered and the number of students and graduates.
Over 700 academic staff members share their knowledge, including about 150 professors. Today a rich educational range of studies covers 30 majors at three levels: bachelor and bachelor in engineering, master and doctoral studies. The university also provides over 30 postgraduate courses, developing qualifications and conferring new rights. Step by step new majors are approved by the Polish Accreditation Committee.
Over the last few years our University has offered education to about 5 thousand newly admitted students annually. Only 1/3 of all students live in Bydgoszcz, with its population of about 400 thousand, and over 1/3of students come from outside the Kujawsko-Pomorskie Province. Kazimierz Wielki University has a greater and greater impact on the region and the surrounding provinces.
Since 1997, when the Senate of the then Pedagogical College passed a resolution on academic and research staff enhancement as well as on developing humanities majors and accelerating the development of mathematical and natural sciences, which would facilitate the conversion into a university, the University has doubled its scientific and teaching potential as well as its infrastructure. Contrary to other Polish cities which, while creating a new university, combined the potential of different schools of higher education, our University has walked, on its own and in a relatively short time, quite a long way to convert from a teacher training school to a multi-profile university of humanities and natural sciences. We are the 18th youngest multi-profile university in Poland. We are aware of a multitude of tasks to be completed. Professors at our University, however, have shown themselves to be determined and effective in their pursuits. They are credible!
