National emblem

You cannot consciously stop science in its creativity. It has the dynamics of unstoppable momentum. It has become a passion of a human being, who is a creature with a high forehead. 


prof. Tadeusz Kotarbiński, the first Rector of the University of Lodz

Every year we adjust our offer of full-time studies, non-degree postgraduate courses and doctoral schools to the needs of the candidates. We cooperate closely with business, non-governmental organisations and scientific experts. We want the knowledge we provide to find use in the face of challenges that societies are currently facing. 



One should question everything one can question, for this is the only way one can discover the unquestionable.
