Career guidance

You don't know how to look for a job? You’re not sure what you could be really good at or if an employer will appreciate your resume? If you're asking yourself these questions, choosing the consultations with a vocational counsellor will be a good idea.

Make an appointment for a one-on-one meeting with a counsellor, and together you will explore your strengths and weaknesses. You will talk about the practical aspects of your job search and consider what steps will bring you closest to finding a rewarding job.

We place a strong emphasis on helping people with disabilities find work and we support students to complete internships, alongside the Internship Supervisor.

The accessibility of the building

The University's building has been adapted to the needs of people with disabilities and, in accordance with the principles of accessibility, the scope of improvements is gradually being increased in this area.The corridors are wide and appropriately marked, and the passageways are barrier-free. Thanks to the lift, people with mobility impairments can without any problems reach the first floor, where the lecture and training rooms are located. The University also has disabled toilets and a ramp to facilitate access to the building. The Pomeranian University is protected and monitored 24 hours a day. Students commuting to classes are provided with parking spaces for their cars (70 spaces in the University's own car park and another 50 in the immediate vicinity in municipal car parks).

A scholarship for people with disabilities


A student with a disability may receive a scholarship if they:

  • have a disability certificate,
  • partial disability certificate,
  • or a certificate referred to in Articles 5 and 62 of the Act of 27 August 1997 on vocational and social rehabilitation and the employment of disabled persons (i.e. certificate issued by a Social Insurance Institution (ZUS) practitioner, certificate of membership in one of the disability groups, certificate of permanent or long-term inability to work on an agricultural holding).

A scholarship for persons with disabilities is awarded regardless of the student's income.
For each university, these amounts are set individually. The amount awarded also depends on the degree
of disability of the person concerned.
