A conditionally admitted student who would like to take a Polish language course should complete the following steps:
- Fill in the application form - available on this website
- Pay the required amount to the account provided in the email about conditional admission to studies. The course fee is due prior to the start of the course.
The proposed course is meant as supplementary aid to students’ autonomous language learning and does not prepare the participants to a B1 exam (it only brings them to A2/B1 level). Therefore, we encourage all participants to study Polish language independently – to invest in a good dictionary, watch Polish movies, or listen to Polish music.
The exam is obligatory for all international students who did not submit a state certificate confirming their knowledge of the Polish language (we informe about such necessity in the admission decision).
The exam (writing and speaking) will be held on September 25 and 26, 2023. The retake exam will be carried out between October 16 and 20, 2023.
