About the University
The University of Zielona Góra was founded on 1 September 2001 as a result of a merger between Zielona Góra's Pedagogical University and Technical University.
The University comprises ten faculties, which provide education for about 18 thousand students within 40 areas of study and different types of courses (full-time and part-time ones) conducted at various levels (undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate and doctoral). All faculties use the European Credit Transfer System, which facilitates partial study abroad. Thanks to the University's co-operation with foreign institutions, students have the opportunity to participate in European Union exchange programmes, such as Erasmus, while academics can take part in staff exchange and international research projects, for example, within the Framework Programmes. All faculties have the right to confer Bachelor's and Master's degrees, and we also grant doctoral and postdoctoral (doctor habilitatus) degrees.
The University of Zielona Góra can accommodate a total of 1660 students in 6 University residences, which are partially adapted to the needs of the handicapped. The University offers various opportunities for educational, cultural and sports development. Our students participate in seminars and discussions, camps and trips, as well as scientific research activities. The University Library offers access to diversified collections of books in many languages and a wide range of leading international scientific journals.
Students have continuous access to the Internet as well as well-equipped technical, computer and language laboratories, and can also enjoy a thriving social life, with student entertainment clubs hosting famous comedy groups, music bands, the academic choir, sports associations and many more.
