Successful login redirects the user to their profile, where there are only 3 points to complete at the beginning:
personal data,
photo,
choose the major.

Personal data

Some of the available fields have been automatically filled in with data that was provided during registration. Fill in the form with residence address and mailing details.

Note the available options to check – one of them is “I want a student ID card”.

After saving the step, the field entitled “personal data” will change its color to yellow.

Photo

A photo is required in the candidate’s profile. The application will not be accepted without it. Please read the requirements regarding the uploaded photo:
The photo provided electronically must be at least 300 x 375 pixels. JPG format is required. The maximum size of a photo file is 1 megabyte.
To properly frame a photo, all you have to do is go to the website ue.katowice.pl/przytnij-zdjecie, load the photo file, and then adjust it to your needs. If the photo meets the requirements, just choose the “frame” button and save the newly generated photo.
This page is also available from the candidate’s profile in the “photo” step.

After saving the “photo” step, the field will change its color to yellow.

Choose major + priorities of majors

The next stage is choosing the major to which the candidate wants to enroll. The majors are presented in the form of a drop-down list, with the option to enroll next to each one. After enrolling to the major, the candidate will be informed on their choice by e-mail. Moreover, new available fields will appear:

major priorities,
fee,
education,
declarations,
results,
printouts.

Set the priorities of the chosen majors. You may enroll to 3 majors at most – 1 is the main major, 2 and 3 are alternatives. The table showing priorities will not show ordinal numbers after enrolling to a new major, please do not pay attention to the missing ordinal numbers. They will appear after saving the “major priorities” step.

PRIORITIES BEFORE SAVING


PRIORITIES AFTER SAVING


After saving the chosen priorities, please note whether the order in the table corresponds to your expectations.
In the steps to complete you will see a list of chosen majors that corresponds to the order of enrollment to the major, but it does not match the priorities, so do not pay attention to that.

The photo above shows that the candidate has enrolled to the following majors: Management, Logistics, Internal security, but that does not correspond to their priorities (see example)

Fee.

Each candidate has an individual account to which they pay the recruitment fee. Fees are posted once a day. First-cycle full-time program candidates who did not pay the fee are not considered in the next admission procedure.

Education

In the next step, complete the data regarding the school you graduated from and the secondary school graduation exam - matura. As the registration process begins before receiving the results of the baccalaureate, the data should be entered immediately after receiving the document confirming passing the secondary school graduation exam.

Declaration

The declarations include a language survey, where a candidate initially determines which languages they want to learn at the University – two main languages and one alternative. The alternative applies to the second main language only.

Results

After completing the fields regarding the education, complete the results and choose the best one. Depending on the graduation exam you chose, points are converted by a converter. For the new graduation exam:

basic - result * 0.7
extended level - result * 1

The entered results must be saved!
There is also an option for contest participants – the candidate receives 200 points, and the results of the graduation exam are not considered.
Before entering the contest data, make sure that the contest is accepted by our University. After saving the results, check the correctness of the entered data!

Printouts

In the printouts tab, there are files available for download. If the file is not displayed, read the instructions (here).
The first file is an application that contains personal data, chosen majors ordered by priority and a photo of the candidate. Before submitting the documents, check the correctness of the entered data! The next file is a sticker that must be printed and glued onto a folder. The sticker must contain the name of the secondary school you graduated from, main major, personal data, your address and contact number.
An error should contain information about application steps you failed to complete.

In order to print the Application and a file folder label, the following application steps must be completed:
priority programmes,
education,
statements,
results

Each step has to be saved by choosing “Save” button at the bottom of each page.
Yes, you are required to pay one fee for one application process. If you decide to choose other application processes, you will have to pay an additional fee*.

*only candidates for undergraduate studies who have not been admitted to full-time studies and decided to study part-time are the only exception. You will find more information in the field “fee has not been posted”.
