About the University of Gdansk
The University of Gdańsk was founded on 20 March 1970, as an amalgamation of other institutions of higher education. The motto - In mari via tua (The sea is your way) - is the same today as when founded. The University of Gdańsk implements its maritime motto by assisting in the development of the Pomeranian region whose wealth is the sea.
The University of Gdańsk is at present the largest university in the Pomeranian region. They have eleven faculties with more than 25 thousand students, doctoral students and post-graduates, who are taught by more than one thousand seven hundred academic staff. The university has three campus sites: in Gdansk Oliwa, in Sopot, and in Gdynia.
The University’s core values are: the rational pursuance of truth through original scientific and scholarly research, a respect for the best models in world science and scholarship, modern education in the service of the development of civilization and society, mutual respect and trust, tolerance for diversity of views, and solidarity within the entire academic community.
The University’s maritime image is reflected in its fields of study, specialities and research connected with the sea and in particular with the Baltic coast. The University of Gdańsk stands out with regard to women ranking high in world science, coming fourth amongst universities worldwide in relation to women scientists as authors of scientific publications (CWTS Leiden Ranking 2019).
The University of Gdańsk advances by developing new fields of research and study, and every effort is made to adapt the educational offer to the needs of the job market and the challenges facing 21st-century society. The next decade of the University’s development is said to include a new level of quality in education, in scientific-scholarly research, and in cooperation with the community.
