The first step when applying for a study period at the University of Szczecin is when the HEI (higher education institution) partner sends the nomination of the selected students. The nomination should be sent via e-mail to the person responsible for incoming students at the International Office (see: Contact Us section) and they should include student’s: name, surname, sex, e-mail address, field of study, department and the semester chosen at the University of Szczecin. The next step is for the selected students to send us their application documents.
On-line Application in the DreamApply system
The nominated students apply on-line with the use of the DreamApply system. Each nominated person receives a number that should be used as a reference code for application.
Learning Agreement (download)
The student should also prepare their Learning Agreement, which must be approved by the responsible person(s) at the home HEI, and then upload it (the scanned version) into their DreamApply individual account. It is important not to make any changes to one’s signed LA, the section BEFORE THE MOBILITY, after arrival. This section contains the following tables:
a) Table A – courses that the student will take at the University of Szczecin;
b) Table B – courses at the student’s home university which correspond to the courses in table A.
NB: The Learning Agreement must be accepted by the Faculty hosting the student before their arrival
The following items must be uploaded into the DreamApply account together with the Learning Agreement:
- copy of student’s passport or identity card
- European health insurance card (EHIC) or any private health insurance, valid for the entire period of study in Poland
- English certificate confirming language competence at minimum B1 level (according to Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) issued by an accredited body.
OR a confirmation of placement test results at minimum B1 level (according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) issued by the relevant unit at the home HEI.
OR the results of the Online Linguistic Support test (printscreen).
This requirement does not apply to students nominated to study foreign languages at the Faculty of Philology or Italian Studies at the Faculty of Theology.
After the student has been successfully accepted by the Faculty, an acceptance e-mail is sent to the student. The University of Szczecin can send acceptance letters for exchange students upon request, but only for visa requirements. The acceptance email is an official confirmation that the student has been accepted to the University of Szczecin. The email/letter is necessary to apply for a residence permit or to start the visa procedure in the student’s home country.
