An image from Krakow, Poland

First founded in 1364, the Jagiellonian University (JU) has been an integral part of Krakow’s life for 650 years. The university’s importance on the international scene dates back to the fifteenth century when 44% of the population came from abroad.

Today, with its growing curriculum and course lists offered in foreign languages, the JU is once again drawing an increasing number of the world’s best students to its ancient halls and modern campus.
