During your stay


ueesn_250ESN is a Europe-wide student organization and its main goal is to support and develop international student exchange programs, especially the Erasmus Program. ESN will help you during your stay in Wrocław.
The main focus of ESN UE is on new coming exchange students who often face problems (and feel abandoned) in their new environment. Therefore, ESN UE members offer help in the academic, social and practical integration process. This is mainly done through activities in local sections, which include cultural and social events such as trips to various places within the country, film nights, language projects, international food festivals and last, but not least, parties.

FAQ1 Can I change the original Learning Agreement? If so, how much time do I have to make any changes?
You have four weeks after the beginning of the semester to make any changes to your original version of the Learning Agreement. At that time you will have a chance to meet individually with ECTS Coordinator (Ms. Anna Witek-Crabb) and discuss any changes to your course list.
FAQ2 I have to change my Learning Agreement, but the online registration system is already closed. What can I do in this case?
The online registration system usually closes after the first 2 weeks of the semester. After this, you will not have access to it to change your courses, but you can still make changes in your Learning Agreement. We recommend you to contact the lecturer first to show your interest in enrolling on his/her course or inform him/her about withdrawing from the course, as the online registration system is closed. When you are 100% about the changes, please bring the final paper version to the International Cooperation Office.
FAQ3 Who is the responsible person for signing the Learning Agreement/Changes to the Original Learning Agreement?
Mrs. Anna Witek-Crabb is our ECTS Coordinator and she is the responsible person for signing the Learning Agreements/Changes to the Learning Agreement. If you need to have your Learning Agreement/Changes to the Learning Agreement signed, you can drop your documents in the International Cooperation Office and we will get the signature for you as we have regular meetings with the coordinator. After receiving the signature, we will send a scan to you and your university by email. 
In case of any remarks and questions regarding your choice of courses, please contact Mrs. Anna Witek-Crabb (ects.coordinator@ue.wroc.pl).
