    The Faculty of Education was established in 1994. Since its very beginning it has attracted a good deal of student interest as a result of its wide range of challenging and exciting special subjects, updated on a current basis. The Faculty of Education Studies ensures quality education, as evidenced by the successes of its students and graduates, and by certificates awarded by public institutions and certified experts.

    The learning standards are in compliance with the Bologna process requirements. The Faculty participates in international student and academic teacher and research worker exchange, under the LLP Erasmus Program, and the Erasmus Mundus External Cooperation Window – with Germany, Lithuania, Russia, the Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus.
    Foreigners wishing to do their studies at the AH Faculty of Education Studies have two options. The first one involves enrollment under the terms and condition governing studies done by Polish citizens which means three-year courses of study for "licencjat" degree upon the completion of which students seeking a master’s degree may elect to pursue under a two-year MA program. The other option involves applying to a university consortium for an EU scholarship under the Erasmus Mundus Program. Successful applicants may, at their discretion, proceed with their studies at the Faculty for a year or longer than that, earning credits in the courses elected under the respective "licencjat" or "magister" degree programs. Each of them is obligated to earn ca. 30 ECTS credits per semester, but not fewer than 60 per year. This conditions crediting such a student by the sending university for the work done by him/her in a given semester or year should the sending university have its ECTS system in place already.
The amount of coursework completed by a foreign student as required under the Learning Agreement made with his/her sending university shall earn him/her credit from Pultusk Academy of Humanities being equivalent to the credit for the corresponding amount of coursework not completed at his/her sending institution, which enables such a student to get enrolled in the consecutive semester or year upon return to his/her country.
