Multiple locations
Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland is the major academic institution in Greater Poland (Wielkopolska region) and one of the top Polish universities. Its 100-year old reputation is founded on long tradition of higher education in the City of Poznań and the outstanding current achievements of its staff, students and graduates.


The history of AMU goes back to the 16th century when in 1519 a Roman-Catholic Bishop Jan Lubrański founded the first of its kind Academy which back then boasted the status of a higher learning institution. Shortly after, another institution of higher learning was established in Poznań, namely – the Jesuit College (1573) and it continued the academic traditions of its predecessor. 


The University is organized into 20 Faculties where mostly training-through-research is offered together with high quality supervision according to the HRS4R policy adopted at AMU. Each fellow may take advantage of the supervisor’s experience or contacts.

AMU has received the "HR Excellence in Research" award and has implemented the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.


The Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań carries out its fundamental and unchanging mission which is to conduct research, educate students and new academic staff on the basis of research as well as to exercise its social responsibilities. The University is inherently associated with science practiced under unhampered freedom and the search for truth.
