Attention, rooms changed!

Dear Students,

We have found larger rooms for two lectures where the number of participants exceeded our expectations:

Language typology and descriptivie linguistics (prof. Nau), Monday 15:00-16:30, now in room 101 in building A of Collegium Novum

Lexicography (prof. Nau), Thursday 16:45-18:15, now in room 601 in building A of Collegium Novum

Building A – take the stairways or lift to the left after entering the building.

Interesting languages this year

To help you choose your foreign language: the following three languages are taught this year as “Język od podstaw” (Foreign language for total beginners) to students of ethnolinguistics, and are available for students of ELLDo (please inform the teacher in the first lesson that you are an ELLDo student and ask for her/his permission to join the class):

  • Thai (lecturer Supawan Sukonthachaya, Monday 16:45-18:15 and Tuesday 11:30-13:00, both times in room B 120);
  • French (lecturers Pascale Bali and Beata Nadzieja, Tuesday 13:15-14:45 in room B 322, Thursday 9:45-11:15 in room B 314);
  • Finnish (lecturer dr Martyna Kokotkiewicz, Thursday 9:45-11:15 and 11:30-13:00 in room B 325)

Two more options, where you however will have to negotiate with the teacher for additional ECTS credits (by doing additional tasks), are:

  • Modern Greek (lecturer Kamil Trąba, Thursday 15:00-16:30 and 16:45 – 18:15, room B 202);
  • Swedish – does start with some prior knowledge, but eager students may join and reach the level through more homework (lecturer dr Milena Hadryan, Monday, 09:45–11:15 and 11:30–13:00, room B 202).

Registration is easy!

This year, the enrolment procedure for foreign students has become easier: they register just like Polish students at the central system. Find it in here in English and here in Polish!

Choose our program from the list of progams. In English, it will be at the top of the alphabetic list under Applied linguistcs (Second cycle, speciality Empirical Linguistcs and Language Documentation). In Polish, find it under “Lingwistyka stosowana, specjalność Empirical Linguistics and Language Documentation”.

Then click your way through to admission!

See you in October!

Where is professor Wicherkiewicz?

This winter semester ELLDo had to start without him: Professor Wicherkiewicz is currently on a research stay in Japan. From July 2018 to February 2019 he is Specially Appointed Professor at the Slavic-Eurasian Research Center of Hokkaido University in Sapporo. His research project concerns writing systems, scripts and orthographies in Central and Eastern Europe from the point of view of sociolinguistics, language contact and language policy. He is giving lectures in Russian and English, for example on Russian Old Believers in Poland (Русские старообрядцы в Польше как периферийное этноконфессиональное (и языковое) микрообщество) and, in an upcoming event, on writing and identity:

Program update for 2018/2019

Starting with the academic year 2018/2019, the Faculty of Modern Languages and Linguistics introduces changes in all its MA programs. In addition to their individual programs, all students will have the following kinds of classes in their first year of MA studies:

  • Introduction to economics (lecture and practical class);
  • Introduction to specialized user software; in the case of ELLDo this is desktop publishing programs (QuarkExpress and Scribus). The application of the software will further be integrated into three of the regular classes.

The motivation for these changes is to give students of modern languages and literatures additional knowledge and skills that will be useful in their life outside of academia. The implementation is supported by a grant within the project POWR!.

Find the updated program at our Program overview.

FAQ 2 Do I have to pay for studying ELLDo?

Citizens of Poland or another memberstate of the EU or EFTA study for free at our univesity.

For other students, there may be a tuition fee, but students enroling for the academic year 2019/2020 do not have to pay for the first year of studying a program taught in English! The amount of a possible fee for the second year has not yet been decided, but it will probably not exceed 1000 Euro.

Our university does not offer general scholarships for foreign students.
