The University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn has been established on September 1, 1999 through the merger of three universities operating in Olsztyn: the Academy of Agriculture and Technology, the Higher School of Pedagogy, and the Warmian Theological Institute. Thus, UWM combines the 50-year tradition of the Academy of Agriculture and Technology, thirty years of the Pedagogical University, and over 450 years of theological education in Warmia.


UWM has been developing intensively almost since its inception. Its teaching and research base increased significantly. The university purchased modern equipment for laboratories and workshops. For this purpose, UWM took advantage of significant resources from EU funds. New faculties were established and new fields of study appeared.


Currently, UWM consists of 17 faculties. 14 faculties possess complete academic rights, meaning the right to grand the degree of a habilitated Doctor (in 16 disciplines). While a doctoral degree may be granted by 16 faculties in 24 disciplines.

Internationalization allows for the exchange of knowledge, experiences, and discoveries, enables multi-faceted use of the research potential of scientists and infrastructure, as well as contributes to increasing the quality of teaching.

NAWA works in favour of internationalizing Polish science by supporting and stimulating international research cooperation and academic exchange. The agency strives to strengthen scientific excellence, internationalize Polish universities and scientific institutions, as well as to promote Poland – its language and culture to create an image of a country offering interesting educational and research opportunities.
