We are a dynamic and modern university with rich traditions. The beginnings date back to 1870 and they are connected with the activities of an outstanding philosopher, a patron of science and agricultural education, August Cieszkowski.

The mission of the Poznań University of Life Sciences (PULS) is focused on research and educational functions, ranging from the agricultural and food sectors, forestry, wood technology, the development of rural areas, environmental protection, biotechnology, biology, horticulture and finally landscape architecture.

At present the Poznań University of Life Sciences comprises a community of over 15 thousand people, consisting of 837 academic teachers (including 134 full professors), almost 300 doctoral students, approx. 13 000 students, as well as research and technical workers, librarians, administrative staff and service workers (a total of 780 employees).

The Poznań University of Life Sciences educates students within the framework of 8 faculties, 18 fields of regular studies (25 specializations) and 15 fields of extramural studies (16 specializations), all of high scientific standard. Each faculty is entitled to confer doctoral and post-doctoral degrees.
The educational offer of the university is based on a three-stage model:
 first-degree studies (concluded with an engineer/bachelor's degree),
 second-degree studies (concluded with the Master's degree)
 third-degree studies (doctoral studies).

Post-graduate studies are offered within the framework of 18 specializations. For years now the educational offer has been regularly expanded and adapted to the needs of broadly understood agri-food business and requirements of the labour market. Five Centres of Excellence, twelve Agricultural and Forest Experimental Stations as well as the comprehensive approach to education reflect our dedication to provide high specialization of disciplines combined with interdisciplinary cooperation.
Excellent staff and superbly equipped laboratories, top quality teaching aids and the highest teaching standards facilitate both the education and research processes and as a consequence graduates of the Poznań University of Life Sciences find employment not only in Poland, but also abroad. The prestige of the university is enhanced by the high standard of research conducted in cooperation with approx. 100 universities and research institutions worldwide.
The University participates in international programmes such as LLP Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, COST, EUROFOREST and EU Framework Programmes. It intensively develops its educational and research activities in cooperation with partners from other EU member and affiliated countries. The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) is used at the University, thanks to which student exchange is facilitated both on the national and international scale.
