Our University was founded in 1969 as the Higher Teachers’ School, since then it has changed its status several times, and finally in 2011 was transformed into the Jan Kochanowski University (JKU).
The JKU is the flagship institution of higher learning in the Świętokrzyskie Province. It consists of 6 faculties (Faculty of Arts, Collegium Medicum, Faculty of Education and Psychology, Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of Law and Social Sciences, Faculty of Natural Sciences) and two out-of-town branches (in Piotrkow Trybunalski and Sandomierz).
In total, approx. 160,000 students have graduated from the JKU since 1969. There are about 12,000 students currently studying at the JKU, most of them being non-residents of the Świętokrzyskie Province. Every year more and more international students come to study at the University. A variety of fields of studies are offered to our applicants, including those in pedagogical sciences, arts, exact and natural sciences, humanities, economical sciences, medical and health sciences, law, and physical sciences.
