The Jagiellonian University was established in 1364 by Casimir III the Great in Kazimierz. It is the oldest university in Poland, the second older university in Central Europe and one of the oldest universities in the world.
The university fell upon hard times when the occupation of Kraków by Austria-Hungary during the Partitions of Poland threatened its existence. In 1817, soon after the creation of the Duchy of Warsaw the university was renamed as Jagiellonian University to commemorate Poland's Jagiellonian dynasty, which first revived the Kraków University in the past. In 2006, The Times Higher Education Supplement ranked Jagiellonian University as Poland's top universityThe City
Kraków is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Situated on the Vistula Riva in the Lesser Poland region, the city dates back to the 7th century. Kraków has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life and is one of Poland's most important economic hubs. It was the capital of Poland from 1038 to 1596; the capital of the Grand Duchy of Krako from 1846 to 1918; and the capital of Krakow Voivodeship from the 14th century to 1999. It is now the capital of the Lesser Poland Voivodeship.
About the ProgramThis program is part of a consortium agreement between the Mid-America Universities International and the Utrecht Network Consortium of European Universities. Students interested in this destination apply through the usual OU process, but are then recommended to the Mid-America Universities International (MAUI) coordinating office and are considered for final selection with other students from MAUI universities who have requested the same destination. Students who want to participate during a spring semester may apply one cycle early, in February of the year before they would participate, although it is not required. This program is not usually competitive.
Fall semester: October 1 – January 28
Spring semester: February 25 – June 15
EligibilityStudents who meet the general requirements for study abroad at OU may apply for this program.
What about academic credit?Courses in English can be found here.
Grades received on reciprocal exchange study abroad programs through the University of Oklahoma are posted by the Office of Admissions as Satisfactory (S) or Unsatisfactory (U) on the OU permanent record. These grades are not factored into the participant's Grade Point Average. Because each student is enrolled in 12 credits per semester while abroad, participants are expected to enroll in an equivalent number of credits at the host university. Academic systems around the world vary in what equals 12 OU credits. The decision about awarding credits is made in the Office of Admissions at OU.
