Pomerania one of the largest academic centres in Poland

The coming weeks are the time when high school graduates will have to decide on their course of study. For some, this can be a very difficult task, depending on a number of factors, such as passions, interests and future goals. The choice of course is also determined by the profile completed at school and the subjects taken in the baccalaureate exam. For those who are still considering the right direction and want to take advantage of the wide range of universities on offer, the Pomeranian Voivodeship is the ideal place to discover a wealth of choices.

Among the 48 universities across the voivodeship, you will find both public and private institutions. The vast majority of them are located in the Tri-city, which is one of the largest academic centres in Poland. Taking up studies here gives you a huge choice of both universities and faculties. Universities in Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot alone offer high school and technical school graduates nearly 300 courses of study. Graduates of the humanities, mathematics, biology or art profiles will find the ideal course for themselves.

Offer for lovers of new technologies

Pomerania is a place created for those interested in science and technology. As many as 8 Pomeranian universities offer IT education.

Tricity universities are also an ideal place for those wishing to start a career in the automotive industry. The choice of faculties is wide, from automation and robotics at the Naval Academy to electrical engineering and communications, which can be studied at both the Maritime University and Gdansk University of Technology.

Maritime studies

The Tricity’s proximity to the Baltic Sea opens up opportunities to study interesting courses related to the maritime sector.

The Gdansk University of Technology offers courses in mechanical engineering and shipbuilding, ships and maritime structures, design and mechanical engineering, as well as transport and logistics, and ocean engineering.
