BA/MA examination and defense

As of June 5, 2020, a Rector’s new ordinance No. 120  regarding the submission of the diploma thesis and conducting the diploma exam in a remote mode is in force. Please read it and apply the bachelor’s and master’s theses for upcoming defenses.
At the same time, I would like to remind you that previous ordinances basically excluded the possibility of conducting stationary defense.

For the guide how to proceed please contact your supervisor.
The guidelines are in Polish and HERE.
