Regulations within the flexible system of three-level studies

General rules:

  • Each student has the possibility of individual setting up the curriculum of studies according to his/her interests and possibilities.
  • In setting up the curriculum and its fulfillment, a student cooperates with his/her tutor - a member of the Faculty academic staff nominated by the Dean.
  • The number of credits achieved (nominally 30 credits per semester) is a measure of the progress in studies.
  • For students distinguished by very good grades, the Dean may establish an individual program of studies.

Basic rules:

Studies of the 1st level (Bachelor) last 7 semesters,  the 2nd level (Master) - 3 semesters (in total 10 semesters), and 3rd level (doctoral) - 8 semesters (in total 18 semesters).

From the 1st to 6th semester the studies proceed according to a mutual core curriculum.

From the 7th semester the studies proceed according to separate curricula.

The 3rd level of studies is a continuation of the 2nd level of studies, and their rules are described in the "Rules of Doctoral Studies - Field of Chemistry and Chemical Technology - at the Faculty of Chemistry of Warsaw University of Technology".

The ETCS is valid for the 1st and 2nd level of studies.

A semester is a clearance period. The obtaining of an appropriate number of credits is the basis to be enrolled for a given semester.

Credits are assigned to all the courses of the curriculum, as well as to the diploma work/thesis.

Credits are not assigned to the diploma examinations, physical training, and professional training activities.

Evaluation of the progress of studies:

Minimal number of credits necessary to be enrolled for a successive semester:

Number of semester 1st level
 Number of credits
2nd level
 Number of credits
2 21  
3 47  
4 70  
5 105  
6 140  
7 165 175
8 197 205
9 - 235
10 - 265

In order to obtain a bachelor's degree, besides fulfilling the curriculum requirements, it is necessary to achieve 232 credits and to obtain a master's degree - 300 credits.

  • Not obtaining of the minimum number of credits after the 1st and 2nd levels may be the basis for taking a student off the records.
  • During the whole studies, a student may not obtain enrolment for the next semester only twice. The permissible duration of the 1st level of studies is 5 years, and that of the 1st and 2nd level is 6 years. Not fulfilling the above requirements is the basis for taking a student off the records.
  • Before starting each semester, a student is obliged to declare which courses he/she will be crediting.
  • The choice of some courses is conditioned by earlier crediting of other courses (prerequisites). The choice of courses may be limited due to technical and organizational reasons.
  • Repeating of courses is payable. The payment for repeating a course is stated by the Dean on the basis of the Rector's order.
  • An average grade of the whole studies is a weighted average; the measure-weight is the number of credits assigned to each course.
  • The Dean can grant a student a health or circumstantial leave. A student of the 1st year of studies can obtain only a health leave. The permissible duration of studies is prolonged by the time of the leave.
  • In the case of reassuming studies, the Dean states the semester, at which the student is to be enrolled.
  • Rules contained in the "Statute of Studies at Warsaw University of Technology" are valid for matters not described above.
  • In specific cases decisions are taken by the Dean.
