FAQ

Q. – I have been nominated to study in University of Lodz but I have not received the acceptance letter yet.

A. – If you have made online application correctly, do not worry – your document will be prepared soon and sent to you as a scan.

Q – While completing my Learning Agreement, do I need to choose courses all from the same Faculty?

A. – No. You can choose any courses that you find interesting or valuable, on condition that majority of them are at the Faculty that has an agreement with your University.

Q. – I would like to apply for a place in Dormitory, preferably a single room. Could it be possible?

If you wish to stay in a dormitory, do not hesitate to tick an appropriate box in our online system. But bear in mind we have a limited number of places in our dorms. If you need to feel safe about your dormitory room, finish the application correctly early enough before the deadline. The accommodation is provided only in double or triple rooms. The only exceptions are made for students who present medical certificate which confirms necessity of being in a single room.

Q. – I have been guaranteed with a place in dormitory but I do not know yet in which I will live and my date of arrival is in a couple of weeks.

A. – If you have been guaranteed a place, do not worry, your place is kept. As soon as we have the information on your dorm number, we will send it to you. Please be patient with the procedures of the University bodies that assign students to particular dorms – especialy during late vacation period, these may require extra time.

Q.- I am in Lodz, what should I do?

A. – Welcome! We will be waiting for you in our office (http://iso.uni.lodz.pl/erasmus/office-hours ) to make a copy of your ID card or passport and insurance (European Health Insurance Card or private health insurance valid in Poland). Moreover, we will sign your arrival certificate (if required). Remember to visit us soon: your arrival certificate will be signed and the date we put on it is the day you first come to the office. Finally, you will receive information about which is your Faculty and your Coordinator.

Q. – Can I change my dormitory?

A. – To change the dormitory you must find another student (in the dormitory you want to move into) who want to change to your dorm (which you want to leave). Otherwise, you can apply for a change from the 3rd week of the semester.

Q. – I still don’t know who my coordinator at the UL is.

A. – Visit our office to check it on an appropriate list. He/she is, as a rule, the Erasmus+ (departmental) coordinator at the Faculty that runs the majority of the courses shown at your Learning Agreement.

Q. – What is the difference between a Faculty, an Erasmus+ Coordinator, and a Dean’s Office?

A. – A Faculty is a school (division, department) of the University of Lodz: as a large-scale institution, we are divided into Faculties for different subjects. An Erasmus+ Coordinator, also called Erasmus+ faculty coordinator, is a teacher of a particular Faculty who coordinates Erasmus+ courses at that Faculty: you will need their signature on your Erasmus-related documents, and you will need their approval if you change course(s) during your stay. A Dean’s Office is an administrative office of a particular faculty that handles students’ internal documents such as evaluation sheet, student ID, etc.

Q. – When do the class start? Where can I check the schedule?

A. – Some schedules will be published in our pages. But not all of them, so you may have to ask at the Dean’s office of your Faculty, and/or your coordinator. You can also ask your mentor, he/she may help you.

Q. – I need to change my learning agreement.

A. – You have 2 weeks after the classes start to make changes in your LA. When you decide which changes are you going to make (with Faculty Coordinator’s help), be sure to print the document from the online system and get it signed by your Faculty Coordinator. Make sure to send a copy to your university as well.

Q. – I need to make my student’s card.

A. – The first step is to visit ISO, where you’ll get information how to pay 17 zloty for it. Secondly, you have to go with the receipt to the appropriate Dean’s Office. Finally, they (your Dean’s Office) will tell you the date of picking up your student’s card.

Q. – What is the evaluation sheet?

A. – It is a document with all courses you have attended during the semester. We will send an email to inform when you can go to pick up it in your Dean’s Office. Then go, teacher by teacher, collecting final marks and signatures. When you have it filled, leave it back at Dean’s Office.

Q. – What is the Transcripti of the Records? What should I do?

A.-It is a final official record of your achievement. After you leave your evaluation sheet in the Dean’s Office, the Transcript of the Records will be made and sent to our office. As soon as possible, we will send it to your university.

Q. – I have finished my Erasmus and I leave Poland.

A. – First of all, we wish your time Poland has been pleasant, funny and comfortable :) Do not forget to visit our office to sign the departure certificate and remember: we write the date you come to our office (not later).
