Language Certificates and Grades Obtained outside The University of Warsaw

Information about  the transcription of grades from external language certificates after the September exam session

According to standard practice, grades will not be transcribed from external language certificates from 14 September to 30 September, 2020.



Grades from the following documents are recognised and validated by the Centre for Foreign Language Teaching:

  • Language certificates awarded by external institutions listed in Annex to Directive No. 59, issued by the Rector on 1st December, 2014. The certificates in question give students exemption from certificate examinations at the University of Warsaw. The grades from the above certificates are transferred solely on the basis of the established conversion table (see GRADE CONVERSION TABLE); | Please note that as far as IELTS tests are concerned, only the IELTS Academic test is recognized; we do not recognize the IELTS General Training test.
