The University of Gdansk was founded on 20 March 1970. It was formed from an amalgamation of two institutions of higher education: the Higher Economics School in Sopot and the Higher Pedagogical School in Gda?sk. Later, it also included the Higher Teacher Training School.
The University of Gdańsk cooperates with institutions of higher education in most countries in Europe and also with many countries around the world. Research and other activities are conducted within the framework of over one hundred international agreements with foreign partners. A series of University institutes and departments have obtained, or are in the process of obtaining, the prestigious status of centres of excellence, which is the European certificate and stamp of quality. The numerous foreign placements undertaken by the University’s academic staff help them to offer students a modern and open education.
Among the successes of the University of Gdańsk has been its participation in the special programme by the Foundation for Polish Science – International Research Agendas, based on creating innovative centres of excellence in Poland with the co-operation of the best researchers from the entire world. The University of Gdańsk has won the programme twice, receiving 76 million PLN to create two agendas – the International Centre for Cancer Vaccine Science, which will be headed by two world-class researchers, Prof. Ted Hupp and Prof. Robin Fahraeus, and the International Centre for Theory of Quantum Technologies (ICTQT), with Prof. Marek Żukowski as Director.

My university is average. However, there are only 14 people in my field of study, so the professors approach us comprehensively. However, after graduating from this university and this field of study, Poland does not have many prospects.
I hope tostudy at university of Gdansk. And i think it will be a great privilege for me study with a reputed university like university of Gdansk.
Thanks to these studies, I am able to combine my immense love for art with practical knowledge of what is happening behind the scenes in theatres, operas or museums. I believe that this is an ideal combination for young people who wanted to broaden their horizons in the fields of culture, history with a knowledge about contemporary marketing, advertising, public relations.
