Application process and deadlines


If you wish to study at the University of Economics in Katowice for one or two semesters you have to check at your Home University if a valid agreement between our universities exists.

English language requirements

Another requirement is the level of your English. All exchange students must have B2 level of their English. We do not require any official language certificate, like FCE, CAE, TOEFL or IELTS, but your English level must be confirmed by your home univeristy on the application form. We trust our partner universities to select students with B2 level of English so that they can follow the classes for exchange students at our university.
