Why should I study here?

The history of the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow dates back to 1912, when a group of outstanding engineers and mining activists, led by Jan Zara´nski, initiated the process of applying for consent to establish a school of higher education that would educate mining engineers in Krakow.

What are the admissions criteria?

 Applicants must submit a legalized diploma (see information on the country page), transcripts, a cover letter, and a CV. All applicants must also submit a copy of their passport, and applicants from non-anglophone countries or high schools must show proof of English proficiency. The application deadline is September 7th.

What is student life like?

Students cannot live by education alone, especially those at AGH UST and especially in Krakow. Intellectual development is followed by cultural and sports development. Many organizations operating at AGH UST provide students with an opportunity to develop their interests and discover new ones as well. Opportunities are numerous indeed, starting with artistic groups (an excellent example here is the Student Representative Orchestra of AGH UST), through typical forms of recreation (hiking and cycling), to finish with some specialist ones (mountaineering, diving, speleology, and sailing clubs). All University students are represented by the AGH UST Students’ Board, which deals with social, living, cultural, and sports issues, as well as organizes faculty excursions and balls, Miner’s Day, and Ironfounder’s Day meetings, as well as – probably the most popular among students – the Juvenalia Krakow Students’ Festival. 

The development of the sports base is one of the University’s priorities. The University has a modernized sports complex with a set of courts (volleyball, basketball, badminton) and sports rooms (aerobics, table tennis). Students accommodated at the university campus have at their disposal football pitches, tennis courts, basketball and volleyball courts, and our own swimming pool. AGH UST Academic Sports Union Club, with its 23 sections, is the largest sports club in Krakow academic circles and one of the largest sports clubs in Poland.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
We're going to be talking about the differences in the educational experience, meaning the academic side of things that students have in Europe versus in the US. So I'm always taken aback when people assume that universities in the US are the best globally.
