How will I get my login and password for the IRK system? How will I get my login and password for the IRK system?

You create your password when you register in the IRK system. An account activation link and a login will be sent your e e-mail address. You need to activate your account by clicking the link.
If you have forgotten your password there is a possibility to get it back. The password will be sent to the e-mail address that you have given when registering in the IRK system.

The Polish Registry of Matura Results (KReM) transfers the results of matura exams to universities, which makes the admission process considerably faster and easier. A candidate may give his/her consent for this when filling in a matura declaration at his/her secondary school (i.e. at the time of choosing the subjects to be taken during the matura exam). The original declarations are filed by secondary schools, so you can easily check at your secondary school whether you have given your consent. Another option to check this is to contact the District Examination Board (Okręgowa Komisja Egzaminacyjna). For candidates who passed their “new matura” examination in Poland from the year 2006 onwards, the results are uploaded automatically if the candidate has given his/her consent for this. Candidates who have not given their consent to transfer their results to universities, who passed their Polish matura in 2005 or earlier as well as candidates with an equivalent of matura from abroad, IB or EB have to upload a scan of their matura certificate to the IRK system (it will be possible starting from 7th July).

I took my matura exam last year. This year I retook some sub(...) I took my matura exam last year. This year I retook some subjects and got better results. Which certificate number should I enter, from last year or from this year?

You should enter the number of the matura certificate that you received for the first time. The document that you receive when you retake some subject is an annex to your matura certificate. The number of the annex should be entered under “Matura certificate annex” (“Aneks do świadectwa dojrzałości”).

Can I register and apply for more than one programme? Can I register and apply for more than one programme?

Yes. There is no limit on the number of programmes for which you can apply. However, you will have to pay the admission fee for each programme.

When does the admission procedure take place? When does the admission procedure take place?

The dates related to the programme(s) of your choice are specified in the admission timetable for each programme in the IRK system. Please pay attention to the deadlines specified by the University that relate to: applying for a programme of your choice, paying the admission fee, taking additional exams (if such exams are included in the criteria), registering for the programme for which you have been accepted and submitting all the necessary documents If you fail to keep the deadlines, you may drop out from the admission process.

To which account should I transfer the admission fee? To which account should I transfer the admission fee?

Candidates transfer the admission fee to the account owned by the University of Silesia which is created individually for each candidate when s/he registers in the IRK system. You should not transfer your fee to the account of your friend registered in the IRK system. This account only serves the admission procedure and other fees should not be transferred to it. After the admission procedure closes, the account will be deleted. Other information about the admission fee is available at: https://us.edu.pl/kandydat/en/rekrutacja-na-studia-krok-po-kroku/oplaty-zwiazane-ze-studiami/oplata-rekrutacyjna/

I transferred the admission fee to the bank account a few days ago, and I still see the information in my IRK account that the admission fee has not been paid. Should the IRK system automatically inform me when the fee is transferred to the bank account?

This may result from a delay between paying the fee and registering it by the IRK account. The IRK system is not a banking system, it only downloads information about the fee from the bank. Please wait patiently for the information that the fee has been paid. Note that banking operations between banks do not take place during weekends. When his/her fee is booked in the bank account, the candidate will see the information to this effect in his/her IRK account. Transferring money between different banks takes about 3-4 days, and if you pay at a post office – even 10 days. The deadline for transferring the admission fee and other relevant information is available at: https://us.edu.pl/kandydat/en/rekrutacja-na-studia-krok-po-kroku/oplaty-zwiazane-ze-studiami/oplata-rekrutacyjna/

Information about the fees for your student ID and record book, tuition fees for part-time programmes and other fees is available at: https://us.edu.pl/kandydat/en/rekrutacja-na-studia-krok-po-kroku/oplaty-zwiazane-ze-studiami/oplaty-za-uslugi-edukacyjne/

What are the point thresholds for particular programmes? What are the point thresholds for particular programmes?

In accordance with the admission criteria, no programme at the University of Silesia has got a predetermined point threshold. Consequently, the University does not inform candidates about point thresholds in previous years.

Point thresholds are determined each year when the admission commissions prepare ranking lists, and they do not depend on thresholds from previous years. They depend, among other factors, on the number of candidates, the results obtained by candidates taking their matura exam in a given year and on the admission criteria. Information about the number of candidates for one place in previous years is available at: https://us.edu.pl/kandydat/en/rekrutacja-na-studia-krok-po-kroku/progi-punktowe-liczba-kandydatow-na-1-miejsce/

When and how will I know the result? When and how will I know the result?

Each candidate will be sent the information about his/her result to the individual account in the IRK system.
Apart from this, lists of results of the qualification procedure are published at: https://irk.us.edu.pl/listy/. The lists always include the deadlines and the place where you should submit your documents and the contact details of the Faculty Admission Commission.
Please note that being accepted is not the end of the admission process, you are not a student yet! In order to register as a student for a programme of your choice, you have to meet a few further requirements, i.e. submit all the necessary documents at the dean’s office.

Yes. Registering for the programme for which you have been accepted guarantees that you have a place in this programme, but does not prevent you from applying for other programmes.
After you have registered you can still resign and then register for another programme.

Will there be some additional admission procedures later on?(...) Will there be some additional admission procedures later on? When?

The admission timetable of the University of Silesia specifies that there is one basic admission procedure and two additional ones. Please note, however, that the second and the third admission procedure will only take place if the previous admission procedure did not result in filling all the places available in a given programme. Decisions whether or not an additional admission procedure takes place are taken by the Faculty Admission Commission, for each programme separately
