Disability Support Service
Disability Support Service is committed to equality of opportunity for students with diabilities, regardless of how serious or extensive they are.
We embrace the constitutional law guaranteeing persons with disabilities education, work and participation in social affairs, which, we believe, is ethically commendable and economically justified. In our mission we have been guided by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities of 2006, which Poland signed in March 2007. We support all initiatives which aim at putting the UN guidelines into practice and the efforts to pass the anti-discrimination law in Poland.
In our philosophy and work we try to follow the ideas of tolerance and open-mindedness first spread in Poland by the royal Jagiellonian dynasty in the 14th-16th centuries.
The Jagiellonian University Centre for Distance Learning is a university-wide unit whose role is to promote academic e-learning, to support new teaching methods and strategies and to offer assitance to university teachers in developing Internet-based classes and running them.
The Centre focuses on:
- offering workshops on Internet-based classes and courses,
- offering help and advice on using JU e-learning facilities,
- developing online resources related to e-learning (free e-documents, EU funds, conferences).

JU Scholarship Fund
The Jagiellonian University Scholarship Fund is a noble and unique initiative, first conceived of in 1999. So far more than 2,300 students have taken advantage of the Fund. The scholarships are granted to JU students and PhD students as well as to PhD students and academics from the Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union countries and the Balkan countries. The Fund is possible thanks to generosity and benevolence of many institutions and individuals who are concerned with the development of local academic communities and of higher education in Poland.Read More o
