Dear Transfer Students,

Students from medical universities in Poland who attended medical program in English language can apply for transfer to the 6-year medical program at the Medical University of Warsaw (MUW) for the academic year 2023/2024. The transfer will only be possible to the year 2nd and 3rd of studies. Transfer may take place only at the beginning of the academic year, once the student has completed the previous academic year and has met all the requisites operative at the university the student is leaving.

Please also be informed that from the academic year 2024/2025 transfers will only be possible from Polish Universities.

A student who wants to be transferred to MUW has to complete the academic year in the previous university, must obtain credits in all subjects and must pass all required exams.
The study in English Division at MUW is charged by a tuition fee.Please confirm the tuition fee with the dean’s office.

The idea behind a transfer is that the new institution can recognize the previous academic record of a student from his/her home institution. Therefore, a student can start studying in the second or third year.

The transfer is only possible from a Medicine program (6-year), not any other study program. It is an essential formal requirement. Transfers from different fields of study do not comply with the principles.

Your program of studies at home institution will be compared to appropriate program at MUW, which you can check below:
