Modern University

The structure of the Jagiellonian University is unique in Poland. Among the 15 faculties, there are three which comprise the Collegium Medicum: The Faculties of Medicine and Dentistry, Pharmacy, and Health Protection. These three were separated from the University in 1950, following the Soviet model, and reincorporated in the Alma Mater in1993. Until recently, the Jagiellonian was the only Polish university with medical faculties, although currently the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń also has them.

Ever more frequently there are foreign-language lectures, in addition to lectures given by foreign academics included in study programmes, for instance in the sphere of mathematics at the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy, and Applied Computer Science, within the framework of the School of Foreign Law (German, American, and French) at the Faculty of Law and Administration, or the School of Medicine in English at the Jagiellonian University.

The teaching of foreign languages has been reformed with the creation of the Jagiellonian Language Centre. Students of the Jagiellonian University must complete their studies with knowledge of two foreign languages at intermediate level at least. It is worth pointing out at this juncture that a course in English for Blind and Partially-sighted Students has been set up. These lectures, led by a lecturer trained in the UK, include the specifics of work with disabled students.
