About the University

The Academy of Cosmetics and Health Care in Warsaw is a private university which offers graduate programmes of study in health and social sciences. With over one thousand students enrolled. The Academy employs academic staff of approximately 90 people qualified in various scientific fields on both permanent and temporary contracts.The mission of the Academy of Cosmetics and Health Care is to provide its students with an education of high academic value, placing emphasis on the advancement of scientific research. At the same time, educational objectives address the needs of the world outside the academia-labour demand in the areas of health sciences and healthcare.

Over a decade of teaching experience is also reflected in the Academy’s unique curricula which offer a wide selection of courses within the framework of the ECTS system. Irrespective of the chosen programme of study, from the second year on students advance their knowledge by choosing specialized courses.

One of the major objectives of the Academy educational policy is not just to respond to the needs of the present-day labour market, but to anticipate its future trends in the broad context of social and civilizational changes. This assumption underlies the efforts of the Academy staff to actively promote Podology as a rapidly growing academic discipline and health care specialisation, whose rising importance responds to civilizational and demographic changes in technologically advanced societies.

Students’ theses are based on research findings that come from their own experimental work, supervised by the Academy staff. The adopted approach guarantees that students obtain thorough theoretical knowledge and sound practical skills within the areas significant for the functioning of a modern democratic society.

The Academy holds classes and lectures in the premises let to it by its founder, the Vocational Development Centre in Warsaw. Along with lecture rooms, provided with professional multimedia equipment, at students’ disposal are: state-of-the-art cosmetic chemistry laboratories, professional esthetic cosmetology and podology practice rooms, a cosmetics efficacy testing laboratory and a cell culture laboratory.

The Academy has its own well-equipped reading room and a library with a collection of specialist publications in cosmetology, commodity science, healthcare and social sciences. In addition to scientific books and journals, students have a free access to a network of international online scientific fulltext databases.
