The course program is dependent on the participant’s level of language competence.

  • Each participant will be accepted into a group (with a specific level of advancement) based on a written placement test as well as an oral test held online before the program starts. Participants who do not know any Polish do not receive the link to the test and do not take the test.
  • Participants enrolled in the one-year program are accepted into groups in the second semester on the basis of their exam results (written and oral) at the end of the first semester as well as the opinions of their language instructors.

All of the courses offered by the Center for Polish Language and Culture in the World are conducted in accordance with the ECTS* grading system.
According to the requirements of the Center, students who wish to obtain a diploma must:

  • earn 30 ECTS** credit points in each semester,
  • meet all of the course requirements,
  • pass all of the exams.

Important: program participants receive one diploma after completing the one-semester or one-year program that they have selected.

* European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System.
** The number of credit points corresponds to the course’s level of difficulty as well as the work that is required in order to pass the course.
