Summer School 2017 - programs

The Centre for Polish Language and Culture in the World at the Jagiellonian University offers summer programs for foreigners that focus on the Polish language and Polish culture. These programs will be organized as part of the Summer School of Polish Language and Culture at the Jagiellonian University in July and August 2017. We offer Polish language courses, lectures on Polish culture, history and art, as well as on social, political and economic issues. Additionally, there is a rich and varied tourist and cultural program. Every year hundreds of foreigners from dozens of countries around the world participate in the Summer School programs and learn about both the Polish culture and language, but above all, they participate in a unique project that gives them an opportunity to study another culture first hand and to make new friends.

Classes are held in the historic buildings of the centuries-old university.
