STUDENT ID CARD
In order to receive the University of Economics in Katowice student ID card, you need to bring one passport-format photo, signed at the back with your full name, and the fee of PLN22 in exact change, and hand both over to your student mentor at induction. Wait for our e-mail to come and collect your student card in up to a week’s time.
Please, remember we can only accept good-quality, formal photos since the student ID card is an official document. Vacation pics won’t do!
Language courses available to exchange students, i.e. Polish for beginners and Business English, are run by the Foreign Language Center located outside the main campus.

Building N (entrance A)
Since it’s another part of Katowice, please, allow a considerable amount of time for commuting between the main campus and the Foreign Language Center.
Most of our English-taught subjects for exchange students are electives. As such, each of them runs only if the number of students enrolled is high enough. You may need to make changes to your subject list in the case of cancellations. Remember there is a deadline for making the changes. It is usually 3 weeks into the semester and you will be notified of the exact date well ahead of time by e-mail.
Learning Agreements and changes hereto need to be uploaded to your Documents section in the SRS application system. We do not process Learning Agreements by e-mail!
While you are changing your Learning Agreement, please, remember to always update your subject list in the SRS application system as well.
