University of Lodz (ULO) is one of the leading institutions of higher education in Poland. For decades it has been also one of the biggest and most popular Polish universities. It was established in 1945 as a successor of educational institutions active in Lodz in earlier times.
About 50,000 students that attend classes at different faculties of the University are taught by nearly 2,500 academic teachers. The interest in studying at the University of Lodz is determined not only by high quality of instruction, but also by modern programmes of study offered in Polish, English and French, and adapted to the changing demands of the labour market. Thus the 12 faculties of the University provide programmes in 50 fields of study and 170 specializations.
In addition, the University offers doctoral programmes, more than 100 postgraduate curricula including an MBA programme, and programmes financed by the ESF. Our students, together with those studying in Lodz within Erasmus exchange, come from about 70 different countries. Furthermore, within direct cooperation agreements, the school cooperates with 136 partner institutions from all over the world. Within the Erasmus Programme, the University has so far signed 480 agreements with 300 partner institutions.
