Introduction

In addition to high-quality students, the school has attracted accomplished academic researchers and professors of education and the social sciences who have helped build the first-rate academic reputation of the school. In the fifteen years of the school's existence, the student body has grown from 368 to almost 8,000 students who are served by a full-time academic staff of over 200 scholars.

Wrocław - a City for Learning


ULS students benefit from the historic city of Wroclaw, a magical urban space and Poland’s fourth largest city (640,000 inhabitants). This intellectual hub, where every sixth resident is a student, offers an inspiring learning context where ULS students can investigate the past and its impact on the present dynamics of a 21st century Central European metropolis in transition. Once a vibrant German metropolis almost totally annihilated during WWII, Wroclaw was later nearly entirely re-populated and rebuilt by Poles in the post-war era and today embodies a complex and multi-layered European identity.
