After you are accepted for studies we will upload the scan of your acceptance letter to your Online Application System account. You can make use of it during the visa affixation process.
Does your university offer scholarships for foreign students?
EU citizens may apply for social scholarship (for students in hard financial situation), and if you apply on the same rules as Polish citizens you may also apply for all the scholarships concerning Polish (social or educational benefit). Other students unfortunately do not have such possibilities.
However, each year we offer certain ammount of places free of tuition fee, so that even without big scholarship possibilities the candidates may study on our university. You may also want to get familiar with government's scholarship programs.
