We have eleven faculties with almost thirty-three thousand students, doctoral students and post-graduates, who are taught by one thousand seven hundred academic staff. In such fields of study as Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Oceanography, Quantum Physics, Pedagogy, Psychology, Law and Economic Sciences, the University of Gdańsk is one of the best institutions in Poland.As part of its commitment to the idea of creating the European Higher Education Space, the University of Gdańsk, as the first such higher education institution in Poland, introduced in 2005 the full range of the Bologna system of education (three-cycle higher education), enabling students to study and opening new perspectives for obtaining a degree. The University of Gdańsk offers courses in over forty fields of study, with over 180 specialization. Every year, new fields of study are added and the range of courses is adapted to meet the needs of the employment market.
