The HISTORY of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań dates back to the beginnings of the 17th century when, upon the decision of King Sigismund III Vasa, the Jesuit College was transformed into an institution of higher learning and granted university status. The festive inauguration of the first academic year at our University in the reborn Poland took place on May 7th 1919. The Poznań University, one of the biggest research and teaching centres in Poland, was granted the name Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań in 1955.

TODAY ADAM MICKIEWICZ UNIVERSITY (AMU) has an academic community of 60,000 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students, academic tutors, research-technical and library staff, as well as administrative employees. In the last decade the AMU has always been ranked among top-three Universities in Poland according to the influential Wprost weekly magazine.
