What makes us different?

Tischner European University (Wyższa Szkoła Europejska im. ks. Józefa Tischnera w Krakowie)  is an outstanding studying place among educational institutions not only in Kraków but in whole Poland.

Its patron – Father Józef Tischner – which distinguishes Tischner European University. He was one of the most interesting and brilliant figures of Polish intellectual life in the second half of 20th c. An incredible philosopher and talented publicist, he was also a valued spiritual leader and favourite of journalists, a man who while merciless in debates was always open to a variety of opinions and beliefs. While referring to himself, he used to say that first of all he was a human, then a philosopher, and after a huge gap, a priest. Without a doubt, he was a person inspiring trust, a philosopher encouraging to think, and a priest teaching mature and conscious belief.
