The Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń (NCU), founded in 1945, is the biggest university in northern Poland. Also, it is outstanding in terms of its scientific potential, the courses of study on offer, forms of education, and number of students and graduates. Due to the joining of the Ludwik Rydygier Medical Academy in Bydgoszcz to NCU, which took place on 24-th of November 2004, the University became a multi-profile institution of higher education with even stronger research potential and teaching offers than ever. On the recent rankings, NCU has been granted the honourable position among the first five best universities in Poland. This is a confirmation of a high standard of the research and educational offers.

 

NCU is comprised of 17 faculties: Faculty of Biology and Environmental Protection; Faculty of Chemistry; Faculty of Philology; Faculty of Physics; Faculty of Astronomy and Applied Informatics; Faculty of Humanities; Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics; Faculty of Economics and Management; Faculty of History; Faculty of Earth Sciences; Faculty of Pedagogical Sciences; Faculty of Fine Arts; Faculty of Law and Administration; Faculty of Political Sciences and International Studies; Faculty of Theology and three faculties of Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz: Faculty of Medicine; Faculty of Pharmacy; Faculty of Health Sciences. Twelve Faculties are entitled to grant the scientific degree of Doctor, and eleven faculties are entitled to grant scientific degree: Doctor with ‘habilitation’.

 

The organisational units, apart from previously mentioned faculties, that take part in activities like education, scientific research and organisation of NCU, are interdepartmental and university-wide units, university-wide centres and interdisciplinary units. University Centre for Information Technology is in charge of proper functioning of the IT structure.

 

NCU employs over 4,400 people including 2,228 scholars, out of whom more than 500 hold the title of University Professor or Doctor with ‘habilitation’, 1122 are Doctor degree holders, and 476 are Master degree holders.

 

The rich offer of education is effectively explored and used by over 31,000 students who are currently being educated in 79 fields of studies, more than 100 specializations, and over 60 courses and post-graduate studies. In the last academic year, the NCU has accepted almost 12,000 new candidates, and the number of graduates since the foundation of NCU is more than 100,000. Students can find on offer studies of art, conservation, medicine, technical physics and interfaculty studies of humanities, all of which are unique in the country.

 

The University also offers special studies. More and more fields of studies are being awarded the positive evaluation mark of the State Commission of Accreditation, such as Astronomy, Mathematics, Politology and Management which have already received a very rare mark of excellence. A wider implementation of the point assessment system which is compatible with the rules of the ECTS system (European Credit of Transfer System) enables students to carry out more individual programmes of education as well as to continue studies on other Polish and foreign universities. Students are offered one- or two-semester studies abroad within the European programme ERASMUS. As a result of co-operation between the Faculty of Economics and Management with the Dominican University in Chicago (USA), Master of Business Administration (MBA) studies are currently being conducted in Toruń.

 

Every year over 60 conferences, symposiums, and seminars take place at the NCU and bring together thousands of scholars from Poland and abroad. The scholars of the NCU execute annually 200 grants of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. They maintain contacts with numerous universities and research centres throughout the world and participate in the realization of international research projects, one of which is The Framework Programme of the European Union. They also visit numerous foreign countries in order to attend conferences, engage in research work, attend lectures and scientific externships. Every year, approximately 2000 visits of this kind are made. At the same time, the University is visited by many scholars from many countries and other continents. Many staff members of NCU belong to prestigious international research organizations and cultural associations. Rector Magnificus of NCU represents our university in the European Universities Association (EUA).

 

The University has a very modern research base. Research work is carried out at our own facilities and also in other centres, both in Poland and abroad, for example, on Spitzbergen. In the 1990`s, a 32-metre radio telescope, the third-largest in Europe, was brought into use to conduct observation work at the NCU's Centre for Astronomy in Piwnice near Toruń. The latest confirmation of high standing of the University is the foundation of the State Laboratory of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (FAMO), which enables our scientists to run research work on the highest world level.

 

The University buildings are located in the city centre and on the University campus in Bielany (district of Toruń). After Ludwik Rydygier Medical Academy from Bydgoszcz has become a part of NCU all the buildings of the Academy, including the University Hospital of Dr A. Jurasz in Bydgoszcz and University Hospital of Dr Jan Biziel in Bydgoszcz became part of the NCU infrastucture . The university infrastructure is constantly being developed. In recent years, new buildings were build: Faculty of Biology and Earth Science, Faculty of Pharmacology, and the new part of Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics. University campus has been also expanded- in year 2011 Collegium Humanisticum was created there.

 

NCU was the first university in the country to have cordless Internet access , in almost all of the University campus. Students of NCU have at their disposal numerous well-equipped lecture and seminar halls, and modern laboratories. The University offers accommodation in 11 student dormitories in Toruń (rooms are equipped with telephones and the Internet link), as well as in 2 dormitories in Bydgoszcz.

 

Many University units are open and available for the people living in the city and the region.. The Regional Centre of Informatics Education enables students to receive the European Certificate of Computer Skills (ECDL), and within Regional Academy CISCO - to receive international certificates which entitle them to design and administer computer networks. What proves the importance of science and education for the whole region is a great interest of citizens in events that are a part of Toruń Science and Art Festival and Bydgoszcz “Medicalia”.Talented young people from all over the country have a chance to learn and study in Public Secondary School Complex “Gimnazjum i Liceum Akademickie”, which is run by NCU.

 

University also organizes courses of the Polish culture and language, for foreigners studying or working at NCU and others interested in learning Polish language. This courses may last from few weeks up to one year. One of the most important events in the life of the University was the visit of Pope John Paul II on 7-th of June 1999. On that day he had met the Rectors of all Polish institutions of higher education and other representatives of the Polish world of science. The meeting took place in the lecture hall of UNC. Honouring this event, the NCU Senate granted the Pope the title of Doctor of Honoris Causa of the NCU. The celebration took place in Vatican city, on 23-rd of November, 2004.

According to reliable sources of information, between years 1454-1466, Toruń proved to be one of the richest cities in Poland. During the war, around 200 000 fines were given in order to support the fight against the Knights of the Cross. This ammount of money was 80 times higher than Cracov’s council annual incomes (the capital of Poland that time) and 270 times more than Poznań’s income, other important city those days. It is nothing suprising as far as Toruń was one of the most powerful cities in trade area, full of professional merchants, earning enormous ammounts of money.

 

Newcomers, arriving to Toruń, were able to see enchanting red city walls, elegant gates and steep roofs of the old tenement houses from far far away.

 

Indeed, citizens of Toruń were quite generous, they offered a lot of money for city’s enlargement in order to beautify their beloved living place.

 

Toruń was quite big town that time, in the middle of fifteenth century it’s population came to 10 000 people.

 

Here’s what current historiographer – Jan Długosz wrote about Toruń:

Toruń is so outstanding with all of those shining roofs and colourful buildings, It’s impossible to find the city which can match up to this one, ideally situated and pure gorgeous”.
