It gives me great pleasure to be able to recommend the University of Silesia, one of the largest institutions of higher learning in Europe. The university has 12 faculties: Art; Biology and Environmental Protection; Ethnology and Education Science; Philology; Computer and Materials Science; Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry; Earth Sciences; Social Sciences; Pedagogy and Psychology; Law and Administration; Radio and Television (named after Krzysztof Kieślowski); and Theology. Interfaculty and general studies degrees are also available. The university has almost 40,000 intramural and extramural students and postgraduate and PhD students undertaking 43 undergraduate and postgraduate courses, with almost 150 majors.

All courses are recognized by the European Credit Transfer and Acceptance System (ECTS), which facilitates the free exchange of international students.

Internationalization is a priority for the University of Silesia. Our efforts in this regard take the form of a variety of initiatives directed at students and academics that are jointly financed by the European Union. These undertakings are connected both with building up and upgrading our research and educational infrastructure and with advancing learning and activities on behalf of the development of the region.

The University of Silesia is carrying out over 1,000 of its own projects, in addition to almost 600 research projects being carried out in conjunction with various outside institutions, both domestic and foreign, including business institutions. Many of these are guided by a concern for innovation and practical economic applications.

The activities of the University of Silesia are in keeping with our philosophy that an institution of higher learning needs to keep abreast of developments and meet the challenges of changing times. As one of the mottoes of the European Union’s 7th Framework Program puts it: Tomorrow’s answers start today!

I am confident that many students will make the University of Silesia their first choice. Now that really is a good course.

Prof. Wiesław Banyś, Rector, University of Silesia, Katowice
