The Academic Year, academic system

ACADEMIC YEAR

Academic Calendar starts at the end of September or beginning of October - it varies each year.
The first week of the semester is very important for Erasmus students, so please, arrive before it starts. Each semester ends with an exam period: winter semester: February and summer semester: June (September only for those who do not pass in June).

Foreign students are advised to arrive in the last few days of September or in the first days of February, depending on the semester for which they have been admitted. This allows students sufficient time to take care of administrative matters such as bank accounts, health insurance, and accommodation. Every department publishes offers before each semester (can be accessed on the internet on the homepages of the various departments). They contain detailed descriptions of the courses and indicate the amount of credits students may receive. It is also extremely useful as a source of information about courses for which students wish to receive credit after returning home. There are three main kinds of course offered at the academy: Wykłady (Lectures), Seminary (Seminars or Tutorials) and Ćwiczenia (Classes or Tutorials). While lectures have primarily lectured courses, Seminaria requires students to participate in discussions and sometimes prepare oral presentations. Proseminars are basic-level classes. In all departments, you must sign up for lectures at the start of the semester. Lastly, Ćwiczenia allows students to develop specific types of skill.
