Step by step
Before you begin your application, please read information about the programmes and the admission procedure published on the University websites:
- admissions guide for programmes in foreign languages: welcome.uj.edu.pl
- admissions guide for programmes in Polish: rekrutacja.uj.edu.pl (website available in Polish)
- programme cards available under the “Studies” link above.
Step 1. Create an account and fill out the forms
To be able to sign up for admission to a programme, you first need to have a candidate's account in the system. To create an account, find the “Create an account” link in the upper right part of the website.
Important! Use an email address which you really use on a regular basis. After you create your account, we will send you an email with an activation link. To be able to use your account, you have to click on the link. If you cannot activate your account, please contact the Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After activation your account, log into the system and fill out the forms with information about your personal data and education history. Forms are available in the “Personal forms” tab in your account.
Please upload a photograph of yourself that complies with the requirements for a Polish personal ID or passport. This photograph will be used in your student ID, which is why it has to be appropriate for use in official documents (a social media profile style photo is not acceptable). Each photograph uploaded has to be accepted by the administration. An accepted photo is required for the enrolment.
Please note! You can register for a programme without a photograph, or with a photograph which status is “pending” or “rejected”. An accepted photograph is only required for the enrolment.
When filling out the “Education” tab, please note that you do not have to input all the information about your documents. To be able to register for a programme, is it sufficient to add document type (e.g. foreign bachelor diploma), year of issue, and country of issue. Additional information (e.g. field of study, grade average), if required in the admission process to your programme of choice, are entered upon submission of application to that programme.
The remaining information (number, date of issue, issuing institution etc) are only required for enrolment.
You do not need to upload any scanned copies of these documents in this form. If any documents are required in the application to your programme of choice, you will be asked to upload them in a separate form upon submission of your application to this programme.
Step 2. Sign up for a programme
Find the “Studies” link in the blue menu bar on the right—it will take you to a page listing graduate programmes offered by the Jagiellonian University. Choose a programme you would like to apply to and click on the green “Sign up” button in the programme card.
Make sure that information in the application form are correct. If in the admission process to this programme additional information is needed, please carefully fill out the form, making sure the data matches the documents you hold (the information entered in the form will be checked with your diploma or certificate upon enrolment).
Entering information about the diploma results
If the admission process to this programme requires information about your diploma results (e.g. grade average, diploma grade), then the application form will include questions about this grade and about the scale in which the grade was awarded: the highest possible and the lowest possible grade on this scale, as regulated by the university of graduation (at the JU this would be 2.0–5.0).
If the form also includes question about the field of study, please make sure you enter it as it is displayed on your documents (no additional remarks are permitted in this field).
When you fill out all of the forms, sign up for the programme.
When you complete the sign up process, you can find your application in the “Applications” tab in your account.
Step 3. Pay the application fee
For the application to be assessed in the admission process, it has to be paid for with an application fee. These fees have to be paid within the dates for signing up for programmes. The amount of the application fees related to your applications and the bank account number for transfers are available in the “Payments” tab in your account.
Step 4. Pass the entrance exam—if an exam is part of the process
The assessment criteria for a programme may include an exam. Details about the criteria for each programme are available in study cards (“Studies”).
Information about the exact place (address) and time of the entrance exam will be sent to you by at least two days before the exam date through “Messages” tab in your account.
Step 5. Check the results
