On-line application and application procedure for exchange students


On-line Application for winter semester 2020/21 cancelled!

Dear Students, Dear Partners,

First of all, we hope you are well in this difficult time.

At the Medical University of Warsaw, we first expected that the COVID-19 pandemic would not affect the course of the academic year 2020/2021 and that incoming students could be safely enrolled and welcomed at our premises in October. However, after numerous consultations we came to a conclusion that the prospect of hosting international students bears too much risk and although the on-line application for winter semester has been open, we decided to close it and ask you to postpone the planned mobilities for summer or the next academic year.

The university activities, except for on-line teaching, have been suspended until 30th September 2020. Then, new procedures and safety precautions that will have be applied depending on how the pandemic develops.

The safety of our students, academic staff and patients being our priority, we believe this is the right decision. We are very sorry for all inconveniences. Thank you for your understanding.

We will contact those of you who completed the application to discuss the best option.




The application for summer semester will open in autumn. You can red the details below.

IMPORTANT: There is a restricted number of places in each course in English.   

We have noticed a problem with sending emails to HOTMAIL domain. The MUW server has no influence on the issue. For proper communication with the International Relations Office we encourage you to use another email domain!

The programmes of study taught in English in some common parts are also accessible for exchange students of pharmacy and physiotherapy, if needed. Moreover, courses can be chosen from different years of study. Although only courses that exist in the semester of the planned exchange can be chosen. Therefore, Winter semester students are not allowed to take courses held in the Full Academic Year or in the Summer semester.

Since students of the exchange programmes join the already existing groups of students, the number of available places per course is limited.

NOTE: If you are applying only for one semester, you cannot choose courses that last for the whole year (i.e. Pathomorphology, Microbiology, Pharmacology)

NOTE: To receive full credit and a grade, students are obliged to fulfill the requirements (including final exams) stated in the Rules of Studies of the Medical University of Warsaw. Rules of Studies - an extract

In this case the student has to consult the coordinator of home university regarding necessary Changes to Learning Agreement.
