University accessibility

The Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce, one of the eighteen state classical universities in Poland, is currently a thriving and the largest university in the Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship. It is an academic institution with a significant and well-established scientific position in the country. The Jan Kochanowski University combines tradition with modernity. It refers to the past and the rich traditions of the city and the region and provides an impulse for the further development of Kielce as a university city. It contributes to the scientific, cultural, social, and economic potential of the Świętokrzyskie region.

The nature and extent of the changes taking place in our University can be clearly seen from the perspective of the last decade. Today's Jan Kochanowski University is a modern university, adapted to the university standards of the 21st century and one of the best equipped universities in Poland in terms of scientific and teaching facilities. Such dynamic development of the University has been made possible, among other things, thanks to European Union structural funds and grants from the state budget. In the last decade, the University has obtained nearly five hundred million PLN in funding, resulting in a significant expansion of the University Campus. Superbly equipped and modern teaching rooms as well as specialised laboratories have been created, providing excellent teaching facilities and a scientific base for multidirectional research that enables the development of university staff.

The number of employees at the Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce as at 1 January 2021 is one thousand five hundred and forty-three, including nine hundred and sixty-one academic staff and five hundred and eighty-two non-academic staff. There are currently eleven thousand eight hundred and forty-nine students and doctoral students studying in all fields and forms of study, including nearly six hundred foreigners. The Jan Kochanowski University is one of the most successful and popular universities in the country. Statistics concerning recruitment from recent years prove the steadily growing interest in our teaching offer at all levels of study.

The University provides education in fifty fields of study and nearly one hundred and fifty majors in almost all academic disciplines, including the humanities, social sciences, medical and health sciences, exact sciences and natural sciences, as well as the arts. The University's educational offer is gradually being enriched with new course proposals related to the needs of today's labour market. We are expanding our English-language education offer. In recent years, several courses of study have been introduced, which are very popular and of interest to young people, such as law, psychology, applied criminology, cosmetology, dietetics, data engineering, social communication, medical course – in Polish and English (English Division). New for the 2019 and 2020 academic year is, among other things, general speech therapy. The university provides education in ten doctoral fields of study, with nearly 300 doctoral students currently enrolled.

Since 1 October 2019, doctoral training is already taking place in the newly established Doctoral School of the Jan Kochanowski University, including four discipline sections: humanities (discipline: history, linguistics, literary studies); social sciences (discipline: legal sciences, political sciences and administration); medical sciences and health sciences (discipline: medical sciences, health sciences); as well as exact and natural sciences (discipline: biological sciences, chemical sciences, physical sciences, Earth and environmental sciences). The priority of the Doctoral School consists in the highly specialised training of young researchers, doctoral students acquiring the skills and social competences that enable them to conduct independent research and disseminate their results.

The Jan Kochanowski University is currently authorised to confer doctoral degrees in fourteen scientific disciplines and postdoctoral degrees (habilitateted doctor) in four disciplines.
