Academic year starts on 1st October and ends on 30th September.
Admission requirements (general description) http://pg.edu.pl/international/admission
There are three different types of international PhD students:
- Studying on terms applicable to Polish nationals (Polish nationals from abroad or citizens of EU/EEA)
- Studying on terms applicable to foreigners (mostly non EU/EEA citizens)
- Studying on terms of your choice (those who have valid Card of the Pole or EU/EEA citizens having enough funds to support themselves when studying in Poland)
In each case to start admission process you have to fulfill several requirements http://pg.edu.pl/international/admission, however the most important is to contact a potential supervisor from the list https://ftims.pg.edu.pl/prospective-supervisors which is published each year.
The admission process starts in July but in many cases foreign students (especially from non EU/EEA countries) have to contact their potential supervisors much earlier in order to prepare required documents and to apply for limited number of fellowships. Faculty member from the list has to agree to become supervisor and then should take care about candidate and should help him/her to prepare all necessary documents. The supervisor will be also responsible to prepare the candidate to the admission process which includes also interview (could be done via Internet). The candidate should be primarily in contact with his/her supervisor.
In special cases contact with the head of the PhD studies may be required.
