Opole University was founded on the strength of the Act of 10 March, 1994, passed by the Seym of the Republic of Poland.
Opole University is a dynamically developing academic center. In 1994,
it began its activity offering courses at four independent departments
and now there seven of them: Faculty of Philology; Faculty of History
and Pedagogy, Faculty of Theology, Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and
Chemistry, Faculty of Natural and Technical Sciences, Faculty of
Economics, Faculty of Law and Administration.
One of the distinctive assets of
Opole University is its attractive location in a multicultural region.
Opole Province, as an area of socio-cultural borderland, fascinates
with its diversity and cultural variety and offers most attractive
material to conduct research. This co-existence of four cultures:
Polish, Silesian, German and Moravian, attracts researchers from
different countries and makes studying in Opole University a truly
rewarding experience, especially as it comes to such disciplines as
linguistics, sociology, psychology, folklore studies, knowledge of
cultures, political science, history. Another strong asset is the
Dinosaur Silesaurus! It was in Krasiejów near Opole where the
sensational discovery of Triassic pre-dinosaurs was made in recent
years, thus providing a unique possibility, even on the world scale, of
conducting palaeontological research of the remains of dinosaurs
At present there are 18,000 students doing
32 majors and 53 specializations. The staff members numbers 1380 -
among them 203 professors and habilitated doctors and 327 doctors.
Research, scholarship, and creative activities promote development
through the international co-operation and knowledge applications in
the natural and applied sciences, social sciences, arts, humanities.
Opole University is developing international cooperation within 59
agreements with universities from, among others, the USA, Germany,
Great Britain, France, Russia, Ukraine, Sweden, Finland, Italy,
