FAQ

If you have made online application correctly, do not worry – your document will be prepared soon and sent to you as a scan.

No. You can choose any courses that you find interesting or valuable, on condition that 70% of the ECTS are at the Faculty that has an agreement with your University.

If you wish to stay in a dormitory, do not hesitate to tick an appropriate box in our online system. But bear in mind we have a limited number of places in our dorms. If you need to feel safe about your dormitory room, finish the application correctly early enough before the deadline. The accommodation is provided only in double or triple rooms. The only exceptions are made for students who present medical certificate which confirms necessity of being in a single room.

If you have been guaranteed a place, do not worry, your place is kept. As soon as we have the information on your dorm number, we will send it to you. Please be patient with the procedures of the University bodies that assign students to particular dorms – especially during late vacation period, these may require extra time.

Welcome! Before the semester starts you will receive a detail information what needs to be done and sent via e-mail to register your arrival. We will inform you where and when you should go and who is responsible for what at IRO and at your assigned Faculty.

To change the dormitory you must fill an application. However, you can apply for a dorm change from the 3rd week of the semester (not earlier).

The information will be sent to your e-mail together with the details about your Faculty and person responsible for your administrative issues in the Dean’s Office of the Faculty.

A Faculty is a school (division, department) of the University of Lodz: as a large-scale institution, we are divided into Faculties for different subjects. A Mobility/Faculty Coordinator, also called Erasmus+ faculty coordinator, is a teacher of a particular Faculty who coordinates exchange courses at that Faculty: you will need their signature on your mobility-related documents, and you will need their approval if you change course(s) during your stay. A Dean’s Office is an administrative office of a particular faculty that handles students’ internal documents such as student ID or Transcript of Records.

Some schedules will be published in our pages. But not all of them, so you may have to ask at the Dean’s office of your Faculty, and/or your coordinator. You can also ask your mentor, he/she may help you.

You have 2 weeks after the classes start to make changes in your LA. When you decide which changes are you going to make (with Faculty Coordinator’s help), be sure to print the document from the online system and get it signed by your Faculty Coordinator. Make sure to send a copy to your university as well.

You’ll get information how to pay 22 PLN for ID card by e-mail. After payment, you have to go with the receipt to the appropriate Dean’s Office. Your Dean’s Office will tell you the date of picking up from them your student’s card.

It is a final official record of your achievement. The Transcript of the Records will be made and sent to our office. As soon as possible, we will send the scanned version to you and the hard copy to your university.

First of all, we hope your time Poland has been pleasant, comfortable and fruitful :) Do not forget to arrange the departure certificate. You can send your departure ticket together with the document that we should sign to our e-mail address or visit our office according to the information sent about when it is possible to get the certificate and what is necessary for that. Please note, that we do not confirm any dates ahead.
