Polish University Abroad in London
Founded 1939

Our mission is to serve all generations of Poles who, outside their mother country or the land of their forebears, wish to continue their academic studies, broaden their knowledge of the contemporary world and maintain contact with Polish science and culture.

"...PUNO has a special symbolic and emotional significance for me: it stood out for several decades as the only authentically free expression of Poland’s intellectual tradition. Your voice was a constant reminder that free thought is the essential component of political freedom. And I also know how much effort and sacrifice were required to keep PUNO alive so that its voice would be heard. I am honoured now to be part of you, knowing as I do now how much Poland owes to PUNO...
