Congrats, looks like we'll be seeing each other on campus (aka centrum dydaktyczne) :D. I just paid the 100 Euro deposit. Other than the promise of enrollment, they haven't sent me anything yet. I don't know when the year starts or O-week (day) ect.

They said the 28th of September is the first day. Seems we all start at the same time. I can hardly wait. It seems now I'll finally be learning the real deal and something useful as apposed to medical sciences ;). I wonder if there is some overlap between our lectures and the 6 year program

Hello all! first and foremost...congratulations! I will also be attending MUW starting at the end of September. I have come upon a major issue regarding the school so far, and please let me know if you're experiencing this too...the financial aid office is NON-EXISTANT and i have no idea how to pay for school...any ideas?

Hi everybody, i'm a late joiner but this seems to be the place to be for discussing issues etc.! I'm starting the 4 year course this year from the UK and can't wait. Hopefully we'll all get some clarification info from them sometime soon - just to put my mind at ease.
The 28th of September - is this what they call their orientation day? and how far in advance are people thinking of travelling out?

Clarification would be nice. I will staying with family in Poland so I probably won't go to warsaw too far in advance maybe a couple of days. Mainly because I plan to stay in rez at least for the first term, maybe even the whole first year. If you plan to rent an apartament, I would go at least 2 weeks before classes start to get settled in, buy textbooks, anything else you need, and fill out any paperwork.

As for their orientation day, I'm still not sure. Compared to where I did my undergrad the administration of this school is chaos. I phoned them many times regarding how to get set up in a residence, and more importantly for the 30% tuition discount because of my Polish background. I was often told conflicting information or they gave me the run around and told me to contact someone else who happened to be on vacation. They were nice and tried to be helpful but I got the impression that most of the staff were underinformed about the procedures.

For anyone planning on staying in residence, I can say that after much hassle, I was informed that new application forms will go online mid august. As for the tuition discount, apparently you write a letter to the "prodziekan" stating your Polish background and send him your parents birth certificate....... Another time they told me to get it settled on the 28th of september. I chose to try both methods by trying method A first :D we'll see how that works out.

I also sent them an email stating that I accept the offer to study there, as well as a fax of the 100 Euro wire for the admission fee and got no confirmation for it. This is unsettleing but it seems to be their modus operandi so to speak

I'm accepted to MUW and I was wondering how you filed for a discount. Half my family originates from Poland. I didn't know this discount exists so I was just wondering how you went about it. Thanks,

Jim

You have to take an exam for the tuition discount. Then they refund you the money. You'll probably need some documents showing your family background...

I wrote a letter in Polish to the "Prodziekan" I think his name was Dr. Szkopinski. He's the guy that signed your promise of enrollment. The letter went something along the lines of "due to my Polish ancestry/ citizenship please grant me the 30% tuition discount" ect I also asked to be able to pay the tuition in two installments. There was no problem with this either. I also sent my mother's Polish birth certificate, and mine (Odpis aktu urodzenia) even though I was born in Toronto :shock:. One of your Parent's birth certificates ought to be enough though.

I must however add, that I have a very complicated biography. I spent 6 years in Poland (1998-2004) and did high school here which I finished with "Matura". The only reason I got my discount so early was because I sent them a copy of my matura to get out of writing the Polish language exam. (They told me this was sufficient proof of fluency in Polish). I did it this way to get out of the hassle of paying them the full amount and then worrying about the refund. This way I only pay 10080 Euro in two installments.

In your case you might have to settle all of these financial matters in person, after having written their exam. Best to call the up IMHO since obviously 30% of 14 400 Euro is alot of money.

Anyway congrats on getting in. I'm looking forward to seeing everybody in September and finally starting medicine :p
