Back to university! (Ordinance)

It is official! This Monday, we are coming back to the university. However, not all classes will be conducted stationary - e.g., physical education classes, foreign language courses and lectures conducted in large groups. We are constantly observing the situation in our country and monitoring the actions taken by the majority of Polish universities - as a result, we are taking appropriate steps to maintain safety but we are also trying to return to the traditional way of studying. The Rector, prof. Przemysław Wiszewski has ordered that the deans, in justified cases, will decide on an ongoing basis on the temporary transfer of the courses taught at the faculties to the remote mode. Detailed information on the method of conducting classes can be found on the faculties' websites - although we will try to post the most important news here on the University's home page. Below is the text of the Ordinance.
