Admissions for Ukrainian applicants
The admission process for the Polish and Ukrainian citizens, who fled the war in Ukraine, starts after 29th April 2022. Each programme of the studies, including commencing the studies as well as continuing the studies commenced in Ukraine, has its limits available only to the above applicants.
Altogether, there are 2,437 places solely for applicants from Ukraine, including 1,507 places for those who intend to start their studies at the UW, and 930 places as part of transfer studies from a Ukrainian university.
The University of Warsaw offers simplified admission procedures for applicants from Ukraine, both to start their studies or to continue the studies commenced at a Ukrainian university. The registration via the Internet Recruitment of Candidates from Ukraine system (IRK) is obligatory. The system is a result of the cooperation between the University of Warsaw and the Inter-University Centre for Informatisation (MUCI), supported by the Conference of Rectors of Academic Schools in Poland (KRASP), and the National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA). The information about the admissions procedures will be available in the Ukrainian language as well.
When documents necessary to apply for the studies are lost cause of the war, the applicant should deliver a statement, which will be followed by the examination by the admissions committee. The simplified procedures for the UW students-to-be from Ukraine also refer to the transfer to the UW before completing the first year of the studies at a mother university, the start of the so-called “zero year” to learn the Polish language, as well as abridged applications to avoid the need to unnecessarily wait for the official university pledge in order be authorised to apply for scholarships, allowances etc.
