If your overall score is lower than 60%, then you may be considered for one of our four year (including foundation year) degree courses.

If you took the Matura before 2005, then we would look for a score of 4/dostateczny (satisfactory).

On your application, please state each mandatory exam studied on a separate line with the grades/percentages achieved, with oral and written results for language subjects.

Holders of the International Baccalaureate Diploma with 26 points or more will also be considered for direct admission to bachelor's degree courses.

Taught postgraduate applicants would usually have passed a three year post-2001 Licencjat or Inżynier (bachelor’s degree) OR a three year pre-2000 Magister / Magister Inżynier (master's degree). We look for a grade of B (4.5/4+) but would consider applicants with C (4) or above.
