Students interested in the programme apply to one of the degree-awarding universities of the consortium partners as their entrance university but will be able to draw on the expertise and focus of all the partners in the context of the joint programme.

Since the language of instruction in the Master’s Programme is English, students whose first language is not English must demonstrate a high level of competence in English through the provision of a language certificate. Applicants should be advised that only the following certificates will be honoured by the consortium:

  •  Cambridge CAE (Certificate of Advanced English) PASS
  •  Michigan ECPE (Examination for the Certificate of Proficiency in English) PASS
  •  Trinity ISE 3 (Integrated Skills in English) PASS
  •  Pearson PTE Academic MINIMUM SCORE 76
  • TOEFL Internet-based test MINIMUM SCORE 98

The application is a two-step process. First, the applicant registers with the consortium procedure, and when they are accepted by the committee, they register with the entrance university. In Krakow, they follow the Jagiellonian University procedure, which can be found here
