So when you said "On the other hand UK Master doesn't obey Bologna rules and last less time that agreed minimum." you were not being entirely truthful.

You're right :)

Just as the UK has many Bachelor's degrees which last four years rather than the Bologna three (e.g. BEd, BA/BSC QTS, BA language courses, 'sandwich' courses, etc).

That's true abut most of European countries and despite of that they have 2 years master.

No. Many Polish undergraduate courses are these 'licencjat' things, at a lower lever. Not unlike US Associate degrees.

You've just explained difference between American undergraduate and Polish licencjat. But it's not important in context of question about doing Master studies after bachelor studies. Except if Polish licencjat is not enough to do master in the USA?

To sum up, is it impossible to get into a university for MA after swps or some other universities in Poland??

Of course it's possible, especially doing Master in Poland after bachelor in SWPS. It's just not world known university to easily get accepted into good western university for master.

So what's this thing about being able to repeat final exams if the student doesn't like the result?

BTW, do SWPS do Bachelors' degrees? I thought they did Licentiate?

As I mentioned before Licencjat is an Bachelor's degree. Read here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bachelor%27s_degree

No it is not, as is reflected by the fact that a Licencjat can be gained by somebody who squeeked through their school leaving exams and then spent two and a half years studying every other weekend.

In Poland, the licentiate degree corresponds to the bachelor's degree in Anglophone countries. In Polish it is called licencjat.

Edit wikipedia if you disagree :)
And you still haven't showed me where is this 2.5 years weekend licencjat.

No point, a Polish editor will immediately revert the edit and will then call for support from other Polish editors. That's the problem with Wikipedia: those who shout loudest and longest and in the largest numbers are those who can write entries that simply are not true.

Why not, anyone can. Including people who are trying to pretend that a Licentiate and a Bachelors' degree are equal, despite some universities in Europe offering both.

Hello!

I want to apply for psychology at SWPS in Warsaw this year. As probably most of you know, you have to pass an entrance exam to get in. I got to know that this exam will only test my English proficiency. But I am wondering about how this will look. I mean will there only be oral tests e.g. or is it gonna be "really hard English"?

If someone of you already did this exam, please let me know.

Greets, Hannah

hello,

I would like to do the master at SWPS. Firstly, I have to pass the English oral exam via Skype. However, I'm curious about how it will look like. what I mean with this is it is hard or they ask just general questions. if somebody already knows or did it, can you please let me know?

I would really appreciate it.

Thanks.

You have to pass an English exam to study in Poland??!! Ha-ha, good oneLOL Would I have to conversely pass a Turkish test in order to study in Germany?

:-)

Sounds like a Marx Bros. routine, only updated in order to fit globalization chaos!! What a hoot.

@yasebas

It's a fake "university" and a degree from there is not worth anything anywhere, in Poland or elsewhere. A complete and utter waste of time and money.
