In this article the author presents the results of research,the main aim of which was to find out:
– the sources of knowledge about Europe among Polish geography students: which university courses (according to the surveyed students) gave them best knowledge about the European dimension; what university courses do they want to be introduced to, or eliminated from, their academic programme;
– the level of cultural openness of these students and hierarchy of factors infl uencing the level of the openness.
To meet these aims the author used a diagnostic opinion poll. The research was held during social events of geography students communities in five big Polish universities: in Katowice, Kielce, Kraków, Warsaw and Wrocław.
