CLASSES 

 
Please take a look at the programme and the plan of studies.
  • during the first 3 semesters all of you have the same, obligatory classes (basic courses)
  • during the first 2 semesters you have also Physical Education classes
  • during the first 4 semesters you study 2 different languages 
  • beginning from the 4th semester you can choose subjects and do the courses designed  for your field of study (major, obligatory courses; elective courses related to your field of study; other elective courses)
  • you are allowed to choose and finish the minor within your field of study by doing specific groups of elective courses
  • in the 5th or 6th semester you will choose the seminary and write the bachelor’s thesis
  • during studies you are obliged to do the internship (details – Dział Organizacji Dydaktyki/Educational Support; useful website –  www.kariera.sgh.waw.pl)
  • you are allowed to change the declared field of study before the end of the 3rd semester, only to another fee-based faculty

Each semester you enrol on the classes logging in Virtual Dean’s Office (Wirtualny Dziekanat) and you have to do it BEFORE the classes begin! There is always more than one chance to do it. Not registering online may cause not being allowed to join the classes and, as a result, not completing them. You need 30 ECTS point each semester, 180 in the whole cycle of studies. You can use more, but exceeding the limit may result in adding a fee (check your table of payments). First you always choose the obligatory courses for the semester, then – if possible – you can add more. Each course you declare must be completed.

The complete programme and plan of studies, schedules and deadlines for submitting the declaration are available on the website:
http://administracja.sgh.waw.pl/en/dsl/Pages/default.aspx


ERASMUS

Students of studies conducted in English are also allowed to participate in student exchange programmes. Please direct all questions regarding the programmes (i.e. Erasmus) to Mrs Katarzyna Smolińska (room 5).


EXAMS
 
Exam session
You have 2 possibilities of taking each exam during the exam period („sesja”). If for some important reason (i.e. illness) you could not attend it, there is a possibility of prolonging the exam period. To do so you need to submit a special form. You have to attach the certification from the doctor’s office or other document that justifies your absence (not necessary if the reason was conflict of exams during the exam period – details in the Rules of Studies).
 
Grades
It is obligatory to check your grades in the Virtual Dean’s Office and inform the Dean’s Office about any problems. After one month the complaints will not be considered. In case of not getting the grade, in spite of passing the exam, contact the lecturer.
 
Conditional enrolment
Conditional enrolment (so-called "warunek") for the next semester is possible for students of the 1st semester with ONLY ONE subject failed. As for the students of higher semesters, conditional consent to continue studying in the next semester may be awarded to those who did not pass not more than two courses. Getting “warunek” is not automatic: you need to submit a special form. Remember to take the same course next year (or semester, if possible)! The payment for the conditional enrolment is specified in your table of payments and has to be made within 2 weeks following the Dean’s decision, into your individual EUR account.

The Virtual Dean’s Office is a tool enabling students to:
  • choose courses,
  • follow the obtained grades,
  • control the course of studies,
  • check the fee balance,
  • have insight into the didactic offer in the Guide

A special place within the system of the Virtual Dean’s Office is taken by semester course selection declarations. Every semester SGH students have the right and duty to choose courses in accordance with their study programme and on the basis of the SGH Didactic Offer which is in effect in a given academic year.
Twice a year there is a two-stage process of semester declaration submission. In the first stage students declare the courses and lecturers they would like to be taught by in the next semester. The declarations are the basis for the Dean’s Office to launch courses.
In the second stage there is a final selection of courses, lecturers and groups in the subsequent semester. Both stages are compulsory for students. The deadlines are displayed on the notice board outside the Dean’s Office and on the Virtual Dean’s Office website.
