The Department of Foreign Languages at Wrocław University of Science and Technology offers preparatory courses to foreigners who want to study BSc and MSc courses in English at Wrocław University of Science and Technology. The course includes:

  • 600 hours of English (20 hours of English per week 5 times x 4 hours a day),

  • 90 hours of mathematics
  • 60 hours of physics

To start the course of English students should be at intermediate level B1 as set forth in Common European Framework for Language, Teaching and Assessment. The aim of the course is to help the students improve their language skills and reach B2 level (B2 level ACERT Exam) and to introduce English for academic purposes in order to enable them to follow the university courses in English.

The preparatory English course lasts for the whole academic year (from October to June) and is divided into two semesters. In the first semester the students learn general English with professional language elements. The second semester covers a balance of language skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing), grammar and vocabulary with a special focus on academic language. The course builds the skills required for understanding lectures, tutorials, research papers and written assignments in English. At the end of the course students take examinations in English, physics and mathematics. The English examination is at B2 level and consists of two parts, a written test and an interview. The participants will be provided with coursebooks and other teaching materials to be used at the preparatory English course all free of charge.

The final examination is ACERT
