The University of Gdańsk is a dynamically developing institution of higher learning and one that combines respect for tradition with a commitment to the new. We offer a very wide range of academic subjects and an equally wide range of subjects that lead to professional qualifications in demand on the job market. An increasingly large proportion of students pursue their studies in state-of-the-art facilities on the University’s Baltic Campus, which is one of the largest university complexes in northern Poland.
A thousand-year history, a location at the crossroads of important commercial and communication routes, an extensive port and mercantile traditions – all this makes Gdańsk a meeting place of many cultures, nationalities, and denominations.
The first written mention of Gdańsk comes from 997. The defensive and urban complex, as well as a port, started to really form in the second half of the 10th century.
