Organizational issues for admitted students
25 September 2020
Your journey at the Faculty of Economic Sciences is about to begin. Academic year inauguration is still two weeks ahead (the details will be sent to you shortly), but I would like to let you know about several lectures/trainings that you should participate in as a student of our Faculty:
1) Training concerning the USOS system - 28.09.2020 at 11:30
You will learn how the USOS system works, its components and how the course registration procedure is organised. The training will be conducted by dr Mateusz Kopyt via ZOOM platform. Here’s the link to the online meeting:
2) Lecture „Intelectual Property Protection” (IPP)
The IPP lecture will be conducted online in November and will consist of 2-3 meetings finishing with a test. Further details will be announced later.
3) Obligatory course „Occupational Safety and Care” – registration from 1st of October 2020
All students of the University of Warsaw who start their studies are obliged to pass the subject of occupational health and safety (referred to as OSH training). The above requirement results from the Regulation of the Minister of Science and Higher Education of 5 July 2007 on occupational safety and health in universities (Journal of Laws No. 126, item 897). The Health and Safety Training Program includes: 1) health and safety at work, 2) elements of labor law, 3) fire protection, 4) first aid in the event of an accident.
The training will be conducted online by the Digital Competence Centre of the University of Warsaw (CKC UW): https://kampus.come.uw.edu.pl. The course materials (four modules) will be available without any time constraints. The test that you need to take at the end will consist of 26 single choice questions. In order to pass the course you need to have at least 14 correct answers.
You can have the test in the following dates: (1) 16 Nov 2020 – 14 Feb 2020 or (2) 26 Feb 2021 – 7 Apr 2021. Additional dates will not be available. In case someone does not take part of fails the test, there will be an additional, although paid for chance to pass the course between 30 Aug 2021 and 12 Sept 2021.
4) Obligatory library training
Training for those who want to use the University of Warsaw Library (BUW). During the training you will find out how to sign up and what are the formal procedures to use the library resources (currently BUW operates to a limited extent).
Our Faculty’s library is preparing information regarding how to use our own resources. It will be distributed shortly.
