Universities & Academic Institutions

5 min read    9 comments

If the slop they serve at your school cafeteria has gotten you thinking about a semester abroad, it's time to take a closer look at Gdansk. Within the Tri-City are 15 universities and over 60,000 students, all searching for that elusive "5" (equivalent to an A+) while still exploring and experiencing all Gdansk has to offer. While many of the Tri-City's academic institutions are less than 50 years old and lack the storied histories of some other European institutions, most schools have used this to their advantage, equipping themselves with the most modern equipment and preparing graduates for a 21st century world. From advanced market economics to sophisticated nautical navigation processes, students here are always looking forward, envisioning themselves and their country at the fore of technological, social, and scientific culture.

Upon completion of a Polish Language requirement, foreign students gain access to courses in everything from management to biotechnology to teacher training. For those of us interested in student life, but not the accompanying workload, the University of Gdansk offers travellers dorm rooms at a decent rate for the summer months. Whether you decide to study, relax on the beach, or party with Poland's academic elite, Gdansk is sure to suit your needs.
