Dear Incoming Students,

 

In view of the current epidemiological situation, we would like to inform you about the upcoming winter semester 2020/2021 at the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin. Please read the following information carefully:

 

Website for incoming students

All the information concerning application procedure, deadlines, dates and organization of the new academic year 2020/2021 is available on our website for Erasmus+ participants: www.kul.pl/Erasmus.eng The website is updated regularly and each time new information is published, you will be notified about it also by e-mail.

 

Academic Calendar 2020/2021

The new academic year 2020/2021 will start as planned, on 1st October 2020 (Thursday). If the epidemiological situation allows for face-to-face classes at the university, you are required to take part in Orientation Days for new incoming Erasmus+ students. Orientation Days are organized a few days before the start of the academic year, so at the end of September 2020 in case of winter semester 2020/2021. Detailed information on the dates of the semesters and examination periods in 2020/2021 will appear on our website for incoming students soon and you will be informed about it by e-mail.

 

Online or face-to-face classes?

We currently expect the winter semester to be presence-based, with face-to-face classes at the university, but we don’t have any confirmed information about it yet. Due to the fact that the organization of the winter semester 2020/2021 has not been decided yet, you are kindly asked not to make any travel arrangements or accommodation arrangements, etc. at least until the end of June 2020. We hope we will have more information concerning the classes in the winter semester until then and we will inform you about it immediately so that you may start making arrangements for your arrival in Lublin. Please bear in mind that we may ask you to wait with any arrangements concerning your mobility even after June 2020, depending on the current situation.

 

Application process and deadlines

Please consult the section How to apply? on our website for Erasmus+ students. You will find the list of required application documents there. You need to submit the required documents by e-mail until 15th July 2020. This deadline may be prolonged, depending on the current situation. IMPORTANT NOTICE: among the required application documents you will see a health insurance policy and an accident insurance policy, covering the period of your stay in Lublin. You are kindly asked not to purchase the insurance at least until the end of June 2020 (please see the information above). Your documents will be accepted without the insurance policies for the time being and as soon as we will confirm the face-to-face classes in winter semester 2020/2021, you will be asked to purchase the insurance policies and send us a photocopy of them by e-mail.

 

Learning Agreement

Course Catalogue 2020/2021 will be available probably in June 2020 and as soon as it is published, we will inform you about it by e-mail. Thus, you are kindly asked not to prepare your Learning Agreements right now, as they will not be signed by our Erasmus+ Coordinators. Please fill in the LA only when the new Course Catalogue 2020/2021 is available on the website.

 

Travel restrictions and border controls

Due to the current travel restrictions in Europe, again we advise you not to make any travel or accommodation arrangements that come along with financial obligations at the moment (booking flights, train tickets, buying the insurance, etc.). We hope that travel restrictions will be removed before the start of the winter semester but we need to wait for official decisions regarding this issue.
