From the Rector


Dear International Doctoral Candidates,

I have a pleasure to welcome you to UMCS, the university which not only offers high quality education on undergraduate and graduate level but also is a research university worthy of great Polish scientist and a Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie Sklodowska whose name our university proudly carries. In 2019 UMCS celebrates its 75th anniversary. It is an occasion for all academic community to celebrate our accomplishments with 240 thousand alumni in Poland and around the globe. It is also an opportunity to look into the future of our university and make plans.

The coming academic year is bringing important changes in the organization of our doctoral programs at UMCS, the programs with long and successful traditions and experiences. The Doctoral Schools of Humanities, of Social Sciences and of Qualitative Sciences and Natural Sciences will be the new institutions to offer coursework and research environment to UMCS doctoral students. I am sure that the change will bring new quality to our doctoral programs and new intellectual impulse to our University. Each doctoral school will offer study programs in several disciplines from a wide spectrum of academic disciplines the UMCS has to offer,  creating interdisciplinary and competitive environment for the incoming doctoral students. 

International community at UMCS includes now over 1700 students and doctorate candidates from many countries and regions of the world. The new academic year brings new opportunities to our international doctoral students. We offer doctoral study programs in English and the scholarship programs for international doctoral students coming to study in Poland.  We hope that both UMCS and Lublin will provide you all with a creative atmosphere for your studies, social activities and personal life.  

             I wish you all the best in the coming academic year 2019/20,

 Prof. dr. hab.  Stanisław Michałowski

The Rector of University of Marie Curie-Skłodowska in Lublin
