view original entry on the University website

The organisation of the academic year 2020/2021 and the organisation of education has been established. We encourage you to read the information. The most important information is:

The academic year will be inaugurated on 1 October in the UAM Auditorium with a limited number of guests with the participation of members of the Senate of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. The event will be broadcast by the UAM Film Studio and available to all interested online. Classes at UAM will start on 15 October due to the need to extend recruitment due to the later-than-usual announcement of this year’s matriculation results and due to the extension of the 2019/2020 academic year.

As a rule, classes will be held remotely. However, some of them (due to the stage of education or their specificity) will be able to take place in university buildings. This will be decided by the managers of the educational process, i.e. in most cases – the deans.
