How we work

Standards
of Education


We offer interdisciplinary curricula that respond to the challenges of today and are well adapted to the changing needs of the job market. Our lecturers not only convey the latest knowledge, but also discover it together with the students. In an atmosphere of mutual trust and partnership, they motivate students to find their true abilities and clarify their future career plans.

At the same time, they encourage students to pursue their academic ambitions and support them in applying for grants for their own research projects. The community of winners of the prestigious Diamond Grants programme includes many outstanding students from our university.

Modern degree programmes
Various disciplines

Our wide offer of courses includes studies in such areas as: psychology, cultural studies, philology, journalism, law, management, design, as well as computer science and new technologies. Psychology, the cornerstone of our university, is a very important element of education we offer. We believe that getting to know people and understanding the mechanisms of their behavior is extremely important in any profession. If new technologies are to serve humanity, they must build on the achievements of social sciences and humanities, and vice versa. That is why we are gradually expanding the range of our degree programmes with new interdisciplinary courses that combine knowledge from various disciplines.

Preparing you for the job market
Professions of the future

We provide students with a versatile education that prepares them for a smooth entry into the labour market and continued professional development. We systematically modify our curricula so that our students are prepared for the changing requirements of future employers and are able to use the knowledge and competencies they have acquired in emerging professions. We teach project work which requires team building skills, strategic planning, complex thinking and efficient cooperation.
