Admissions criteria

Criteria for candidates with "new" Polish maturity exam (issued after 2005)

The qualification shall include the Matura certificate competition – the results of the subjects indicated below, which are taken as part of the Matura examination in the written part, shall be taken into account: 

Mathematics One subject to choose from the following: biology, chemistry, physics/physics and astronomy, geography, information technology Modern foreign language
60% 30% 10%
  • The result of the basic level exam shall be multiplied by the conversion factor of 0.5, at the extended level by the conversion factor of 1 and then by the subject weight.
  • If a candidate has taken a subject at the Matura exam at both levels, the result from the level which is more favourable to the candidate after applying the conversion factor and weighting shall be considered. The same subject may be included twice in the qualification, provided the candidate has passed it at two levels, i.e., basic and extended. 
  • The score of the bilingual exam from the modern foreign language shall be converted to the score at the extended level by multiplying it by 4/3; The maximum result from the extended level shall not exceed 100% (if higher, the final value shall be 100%).

  • If a candidate has not passed a subject at the Matura examination, they will receive zero points for that subject, but may proceed to the qualification procedure.

  • Qualification for studies shall be determined by the place on the ranking list created based on the sum of points obtained. If the number of candidates does not exceed the agreed admission limit, all candidates whose result is greater than 0 shall be admitted.                                                                                                 

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

"Old" Polish maturity exam

In the case of the candidates who took the “old” Polish maturity exam, the results of particular subjects taken orally or in writing (specified in the relevant programme admission criteria for candidates who passed the “new” Polish maturity exam), placed on the certificate of secondary education and certificate issued by Regional Examinations Board, are taken into consideration.

The method of converting results of the Polish maturity exam is adjusted to the evaluation system for the candidates who took the “new” Polish maturity exam.

The maturity exam grades will be converted to percentage points as follows:

Maturity exam to 1991

Maturity exam after 1991

6 — 100 %

5 — 100 %

5 — 80 %

4 — 70 %

4 — 75 %

3 — 30 %

3 — 50 %

2 — 30 %

In the case when there are programme entrance exams, both the results of these exams and the results of maturity exams are taken into consideration.

International Baccalaureate

The admission rules applying to candidates with the new Matura certificate (“nowa matura”) also apply to candidates with the international Matura – the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma, issued by the International Baccalaureate foundation headquartered in Geneva. The results from the IB diploma will be converted into the “nowa matura” scale in the following way

IB Diploma

Standard level

Higher level






















  • Percentage in the written IB Matura exam at the basic level (SL) is converted to points as follows: 1% = 1 points.
  • Percentage in the written IB Matura exam at the advanced level (HL) is converted to points as follows: 1% = 1.5 points.

In case the candidate does not submit the International Baccalaureate diploma, for the sake of qualification, the candidate is obliged to submit the certificate about the IB result issued by the appropriate institution and present the IB diploma immediately after its reception.

European Baccalaureate

The candidate who obtained the European Baccalaureate diploma, issued by European Schools in accordance to the Luxemburg Convention of 21 June 1994 about the European School status, are subject to the same admission rules as holders of “new” Polish maturity exam. The results on the diploma of European Baccalaureate are treated as results of the extended “new” Polish maturity exams and are calculated according to the following indicators:

EB exam

“new” Polish maturity exam

9,00 ÷ 10,00


8,00 ÷ 8,95


7,00 ÷ 7,95


6,00 ÷ 6,95


5,00 ÷ 5,95


4,00 ÷ 4,95


 In case the candidate does not submit the European Baccalaureate diploma, for the sake of qualification, the candidate is obliged to submit the certificate about the EB result issued by the appropriate institution and present the EB diploma immediately after its reception.

Secondary education certificate, or equivalent, obtained outside of Poland

The candidate who has obtained the secondary school graduation certificate (or another document) issued outside Poland may apply for studies. The document has to entitle the holder to undertaking Bachelor studies in the country in which the document was issued.

For candidates which are Polish citizens or apply for studies on the same rules as Polish citizens, the admission procedures defined in the programme’s description apply.

Foreign candidates applying for studies on other basis (tuition-paying, tuition-free, scholarships) are accepted for studies under regulations other than noted in the admission criteria. 

If programme’s admission criteria require mark in Polish language : The candidates applying as Polish citizens or on the same rules as Polish, which finished secondary education outside Poland, will have the mark of that country’s language taken into account instead of Polish language mark.

In the case of candidates who have a secondary school-leaving certificate or other document authorising them to take up 1st cycle studies or long-cycle studies issued abroad, the grades in the document authorising them to take up studies in the country of document issue are taken into consideration. Additionally, WKR may take into consideration the grades in external exams in the countries where such exams are conducted, e.g.: result of CT exam in the case of Belarus, result of EGE exam in the case of Russia, and result of ZNO exam in the case of Ukraine. The results of these exams shall be regarded as equivalent to Polish advanced Matura exam.
