The educational offer of the Pedagogical University, which holds high positions in many prestigious rankings, is addressed chiefly, though not exclusively, to teachers and educators. While maintaining a high standard of teaching, we try to keep the tuition lower than charged by the government, thus offering a chance to study to less affluent persons. Courses are given by over 140 professors and full professors, many of whom are outstanding specialists in their fields. Our university guarantees high professional qualifications to its alumni.
We offer our students the opportunity to gain high professional qualifications and knowledge of education, political science and modern languages.
