Studies in English

Environmental Protection

Mode of study

First – degree regular studies ( 3 years ) leading to the bachelor professional title. To obtain this degree, students must pass the bachelor exam in the third year of study.

Enrollment procedure

Candidates will be admitted according to the ranking list based on the results of the matriculation examination (so called “the new matura”) or the maturity exam (so called “the old matura”). Evaluation of old matura exams can be converted into points of the matriculation examination:

  • the scale with six steps,
  • the scale with four steps.

Number of points for the ranking is determined as the weighted average number of points corresponding to the results of the new matura or the old matura in subjects specific to the field of study.

Points for the ranking (R) are calculated using the formula:

R = 0,20 b1 + 0,20 b2 + 0,20 c1 + 0,20 c2 + 0,05 m1 + 0,05 m2 + 0,05 o1 + 0,05 o2

where:

b1, b2 – points for Biology
c1, c2 – points for Chemistry
m1, m2 – points for Mathematics
o1, o2 – points for Modern foreign language

One ranked list is created for all candidates. Points for individual subjects are calculated as follows:

candidates with the new matura:

b1 – points for the written exam in Biology ( basic level )

b2 – points for the written exam in Biology ( extended level )

c1 – points for the written exam in Chemistry ( basic level )

c2 – points for the written exam in Chemistry ( extended level )

m1 – points for the written exam in Mathematics ( basic level )

m2 – points for the written exam in Mathematics ( extended level )

o1 – points for the written exam in Modern Foreign Language ( basic level )

o2 – points for the written exam in Modern Foreign Language ( extended level )

candidates with the old matura

b1 – points for the oral exam in Biology

b2 – points for the written exam in Biology

c1 – points for the oral exam in Chemistry

c2 – points for the written exam in Chemistry

m1 – points for the oral exam in Mathematics

m2 – points for the written exam in Mathematics

o1 – points for the oral exam in Modern Foreign Language

o2 – points for the written exam in Modern Foreign Language

d2– points for the written exam in Physics and Astronomy or Informatics

If there is no points or ratings of the required exam for a specific subject in the graduation certificate of secondary education, the ranking value is set to zero points.

If there is no grade for a written exam in the graduation certificate of secondary education but such a grade is expected in the qualification procedure, the oral exam grade is taken as the written exam grade and vice versa if there is no grade for an oral exam for a specific subject, the written exam grade is taken as the oral exam grade.

  • is compatibile with the second degree course, the number of points scored is equal to the adjusted score indicated on the diploma plus two,
  • is relative to the second degree course, the number of points scored is equal to the adjusted score indicated on the diploma plus one,

As an additional criterion, a score is assigned according to the following ordered rule:
1. For the adjusted diploma examination grade.

The final grade, grades for the completed courss and the means S granted according to grading systems in other schools and universities are adjusted to the final grade, grades and means N according to the grading system used in the University of Zielona Gora according to the following formula: N = 3 ( S-m) / (M – m) + 2, where M is the maximu, m the minimum (unsatisfactory/failing) grade used in the other schools or universities.

The candidates accepted for the second degree course may be required to meet additional prerequisites due to curricular differences in general subjects in the first degree of study. The deadlines will be set by the Dean.
