Foreign language classes
The Language Centre runs courses for students of all faculties in the following languages:
• Polish as a foreign language.
The first-cycle language course lasts four semesters (120 hours in total, 30 hours per semester) and starts from the second or third semestre of study. Students attend classes in the language of their choice ( the most frequently chosen language is English with the language proficiency B2 target level).
During second-cycle studies, foreign language classes are conducted according to the order of the given faculty of Opole University of Technology (30 or 60 hours blocks of specialist language).
Polish language classes are intended for students who are not Polish citizens who undergo a full education cycle in Polish at the OUTech. Classes are held at full-time and part-time, first and second cycle studies. First cycle studies include 60 hours of classes in the first year of study, second degree studies include 30 hours of Polish language classes.
