Jan Długosz University of Czestochowa
Jan Dlugosz University in Czestochowa was founded in 1971 as a public academic institution to provide teacher and pedagogical education. Today the university consists of 5 faculties with over 20 specialties, which offer the first and the second cycle degree, and doctoral students the knowledge and skills needed to succeed as persons and professionals. Besides, JDU offers over 50 forms of post-graduate studies. The university community is created by approx. 10.000 students (full time and part time, and post-graduate studies). At present JDU employs over 500 academic teachers (about 400 with PhD or higher academic degree). The JDU also employs about 350 administration clerks and service providers. International cooperation plays a key role in the strategic development plans of JDU. It includes the exchange of undergraduate and graduate students, teachers and researchers, some of which is supported also by the EC programs (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius, 5th FP, and 6th FP). Cooperation in both education and research with a number of universities throughout EU and the world is mirrored through a number of long-term contracts with these institutions (approx. 30).
