Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce (UJK) is a public Polish university established in 1969. Back then it was known as Swietokrzyska Pedagogical University of Kielce. Thanks to support from the European Union, it is one of the best-equipped universities in Poland and provides opportunities for further professional development across 41 specializations in modern and state-of-the-art equipped facilities. 

The University Library offers free access for students and faculty members to various academic resources in print and electronic versions on-site, as well as through the university network. These scientific, clinical, and professional literature resources include electronic versions of magazines from sources like publishing houses ELSEVIER and SPRINGER, and databases under the project eIFL/EBSCO. The library also grants access to world-renowned medical and multidisciplinary databases, such as MEDLINE, Health Source-Nursing/Academic Edition, and Health Source-Consumer Edition, to name a few.

Currently, UJK has approximately 12 500 enrolled students and 1 400 employees, of which 860 include academic staff. Medical teaching in English began in 2016 and continues to be a growing focus of the university. International students from North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia have been selected to pursue their medical education in Kielce. The English medical program at JKU offers excellent training for future doctors, as well as a wonderful opportunity to live and study in a culturally diverse environment.
