Details concerning the admission procedure can be found in IRK (Internet Registration System):

  • admission procedures for candidates with Polish diplomas (both the Institute of Applied Linguistics graduates and graduates of other faculties and universities),
  • admission procedures for candidates with foreign diplomas,
  • deadlines for the submission of documents and other detailed requirements.

Each candidate chooses a major area of study – translation or teaching and translation, whereas individuals who do not possess certification to teach two foreign languages may only choose a major in translation.  The opportunity to complete programme content in case of differences in pedagogical certification standards will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis (list of programme differences – PDF file).

Graduates  of the translation major receive a Master’s degree in Applied Linguistics, in the area of the two languages selected (B and C), whereas graduates of the teaching and translation major receive a Master’s degree in the area of the two languages selected (B and C) AND certification to teach these languages in all educational institutions.

Please, read the information in IRK carefully. Data in the IRK were approved by the Resolution of the Senate of the University of Warsaw.
