Our academic year is divided into two semesters. Each semester consists
of 15 weeks of studying. The examination period starts right after the
lecture period and lasts two weeks. Courses are offered as lectures, in
some cases accompanied by separate practical classes or labs. Teachers
use several forms of assessment – written tests, oral exams, essays,
projects and presentations. In many courses the attendance and
participation in class discussions will be considered in calculating of
the final grade.
Choosing study path
Exchange students make a choice of course units/modules in one of the application documents – "LEARNING AGREEMENT". LA is a contract between three parties – a student, Home University and Host Institution (PUEB). The document is designed to guarantee full recognition of the undertaken programme of studies.
The chosen programme of study may have to be modified after the arrival of a student at the PUEB. In such cases, the student can make the changes to his/her original Learning Agreement by completing a form "CHANGES TO LEARNING AGREEMENT" which also has to be signed by all three parties. The students who wish to modify their study path are obliged to inform the Research and International Relations Office about the changes during the first two weeks of the semester. After that time further modifications are not allowed.
Student ID Card
Each exchange student receives a Student Identity Card which proves the student status and entitles to a wide range of student discounts (e.g. public transportation in Poland). According to the national regulations the students are required to return the ID to the University at the end of their study period at the PUEB.
