WELCOME TO THE INSTITUTE OF SOCIOLOGY

Dear Erasmus Student!

We will be very happy to host you at the Institute of Sociology (part of Institute of Philosophy, Sociology and Journalism) at the University of Gdańsk.

In order to make your visit here more useful, easier and profitable here you will find some hints how to find yourselves among the complicated procedures  

  1. When you’ve made a decision to come and study sociology at the our Institute, you need to prepare a learning agreement – a list of subjects you choose to study in Gdańsk.
  2. Majority of courses offered at our Institute are conducted in Polish. However, each year we offer courses in English as well. Make sure you have chosen the subjects in the language you are able to speak and learn (e.g. Polish or English). Please mind that majority of them take place in the winter semester. The list of subjects can change depending on the students’ interest. Therefore be prepared for making changes in yo ur learning agreement after your arrival to Gdańsk.
  3. Each subject has a given number of ECTS credits. See the table below. You can also choose courses from other Institutes as long as courses are in Department of Social Sciences and teacher agrees.
  4. In majority of courses the credit is given with the grade. Below you’ll find a scale of grades used at the University of Gdańsk.
  5. Before coming to Poland, you need to contact Students’ Exchange Office at University of Gdańsk and provide them with some relevant documents in order to be accepted as a student. General information regarding Erasmus Incoming Students you’ll find here:

  1. After your arrival to Gdańsk, you need to attend a meeting organized by the Students’ Exchange Office, which is obligatory for all incoming students. You’ll be provided there with all necessary information regarding your stay and you’ll be informed about the procedure of obtaining a Student ID which is a must-have when you want to have student discounts on public transport.
  2. During the meeting in the Students’ Exchange Office you’ll be informed about the date of the meeting in the Institute of Sociology (Department of Social Sciences). During this meeting you’ll be informed if all the subjects you have chosen will finally take place and you’ll be able to make changes in your learning agreement. We’ll take you on a tour around the Institute and provide you with all information necessary for your studies.
