Faculty of Educational Studies

The Faculty of Educational Studies of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań continues the best research traditions in this field in Poland.

Research projects relate to the contemporary problems of schooling and education which are closely connected to the development of this discipline as a science and pedagogy as a practical social activity.

The Ogrody campus, where the Faculty of Educational Studies is located, is a popular place both among students and employees, because it is located in a very green area, with excellent transport connections, near the more fashionable districts of Poznań - Jeżyce and Grunwald - which makes it cozy and a harmonious place that is conducive to the sharing of knowledge.

In the summer semester, some classes, at the request of students, are conducted on lawns, in the shade of trees, in the vicinity of outdoor sculptural installations.
