Collegium Civitas

Collegium Civitas is a modern non-state university located in the heart of Warsaw, the most dynamic capital city of Central and Eastern Europe. Experience and commitment of our founders and faculty members have earned us a reputation of the best place to study international, social and political science in English.

Collegium Civitas holds highest category in parametric evaluation of the potential of scientific units (A) granted by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Poland.

“One Can Achieve” is the title of the book about the emergence and development of our university. ‘One Can Achieve’ is also an expression of the idea which is instilled in our students and listeners. Its meaning is to open you to a world of tomorrow, which is only seemingly predictable.
In essence, what about we know certainly today can be distilled down to the words: diverse, technologically advanced, and demanding constant willingness to take on new, unexpected challenges. We have therefore adapted our primary goal to help develop people who are independent, hungry for knowledge and keen to learn new skills. Above all, we are aware that personal satisfaction and professional success depends on an innate ability to cooperate with a cross-disciplinary environment.
