Admissions criteria

Based on an admission procedure, persons with a bachelor's, engineer’s, master's degree or equivalent (i.e. recognised with a Polish diploma in the case of completion of studies abroad) obtained in a study programme of geography or related disciplines shall be admitted to the study programme within the limit of places.

Admission criterion: admission for studies shall be determined by the place on the ranking list created based on the sum obtained from the final grade on the diploma and grade point average.

In the case of graduates of other study programmes than those mentioned above or graduates from other universities, if the analysis of the 1st cycle studies reveals differences in the study programme and/or learning outcomes, the student shall be obliged to do remedial (paid) classes within the deadline set by the Dean of the Faculty.

In the case of persons admitted for the 2nd cycle studies with a teacher training programme with a documented partial pedagogical preparation (in line with the ministerial guidelines for training in preparation for the teaching profession – cf. Regulation of the Minister of Science and Higher Education of 25 July 2019, i.e., Journal of Laws of 2021, item 890), a verification of this preparation (the modules passed, learning outcomes, ECTS points and the number of hours completed) shall be conducted to eliminate or complete the differences in curricula. These differences may be due to the different permissible order of delivery of the teaching-learning outcomes for a particular course of study in other higher education institutions. If a student has to participate in compensatory activities, the student shall be obliged to pay a fee which shall be determined based on separate provisions.

The candidate shall be required to submit an appropriate medical certificate for the absence of a medical contraindication to study this study programme
