May, admissions time

Dear colleagues,

May is the time of year when many of us traditionally focus our attention on the admissions process. We go through the results of tests and examinations with the hope that we will be able to select not only the best applicants but also the motivated ones, those who will start studying at our faculty from the autumn semester with gusto and determination. This year, for the first time in the modern history of the Faculty, the regular admission procedure was joined by an extraordinary one, intended for Ukrainian applicants in need. By the first of May, more than 40 applications were submitted in this extraordinary run. The greatest interest is in the study of Psychology and English, with Chinese studies and Japanese studies also among the preferences. Evaluating the applications, ranking the applicants, and deciding who will be admitted to study are responsible and difficult steps. Although the current situation brings with it some difficulties, we are happy to help. Therefore, I would like to wish us all that all the partial steps will be guided above all by justice and patience.

Vice-Dean for Admissions and Public Relations
