Registration for OGUN courses in the winter semester 2016/17

Dear Students,

Registrations for OGUN courses starts on 02 June 2016.

You register through the usual token registration website: http://rejestracja.usos.uw.edu.pl
Remember that USOS will ask you to already link each course to the program during the registration!

Round I: 02 June, 21:00 - 30 June 2016, 23:59
- from 02 June it will be possible to sign up for OGUNs belonging to the group 0000-SCISLE-OG (exact sciences courses), also some internet courses and those offered by non-UW units.
-  from 06 June it will be possible to sign up for OGUNs belonging to the group 0000-HUM-OG (humanities courses) and courses open previously if places are left.
-  from 09 June it will be possible to sign up for OGUNs belonging to the group 0000-SPOL-OG (social sciences courses) and courses open previously if places are left.

Round II: 05 Sep, 21:00 – 09 Oct 2016, 23:59
-  from 05 Sep it will be possible to sign up for OGUNs belonging to the group 0000-SCISLE-OG (exact sciences courses), also some internet courses and those offered by non-UW units if places are left

-  from 12 Sep it will be possible to sign up for OGUNs belonging to the group 0000-SPOL-OG (social science courses) and courses open previously if places are left.

During both rounds you can register for and deregister from courses as many times as you want.

Things to remember:

  • Each student needs to gain 21 ECTS points from OGUN courses during 5 years of studies.
  • If you are currently on the first year in 2015/16, remember that at least 5 ECTS (out of required 21) need to come from humanities or social sciences OGUNs).
  • If you are foreign, you can take OGUN classes about Poland offered by Polonicum. There is a separate registration for that. Contact Polonicum for more details: www.polonicum.uw.edu.pl.
  • Check the language of the course before you sign up for it! Names of courses are translated into English, but it doesn’t mean that they are conducted in English! You can find the language of a course in the course profile (in the table with description of each course).
  • Some OGUNs last for the whole year, not just for the winter semetser.


FAQ

Q: I am a new/1st-year student. Where can I find more info about how to register?
A: Read the instruction that has just been sent to you by email at the beginning of the year. It is all explained there with printscreens. If you have not received anything, please contact our office.

Q: I had signed up in the first registration round, but later I decided not to take the course, can I still resign?
A: Yes. With OGUNs, if you sign up in the first round, you will still be able to resign till the last day of the second round. But remember – if you don’t resign in a given period of time, your course choices will be considered final and you will be required to get a credit.

Q: It’s the first day of the registration round, it has just started, but the system is extremely slow and I cannot log in. Why is that?
A: Thousands of students of the University are also trying to log in and probably the servers are overloaded as OGUNs are for all UW students. Keep clicking or come back later (but then the course you would like to take might be full …and all the students know that, that’s why the servers are overloaded, because they keep clicking…). But the situation got much better after they divided courses into 3 groups which open on 3 different days.

Q: Can I take OGUN courses taught in Polish if I study in English?
A: Yes. As long as you know the language of instruction, you can sign up. There are OGUNs taught in eg. German or Spanish, so if you know these languages, you may sign up for them.

Q: Can I sign up for psychological OGUNs?
A: No. The idea of OGUNs is that they are courses not related to your studies. So if an OGUN is psychological or offered by our faculty, you can’t take it. But if there is a course close to psychology offered by another faculty, you may sign up.
