Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice is operating
independently since 2001. Prior to that, for nearly
50 years, it functioned as branch of the Academy
of Fine Arts in Krakow, the oldest Polish higher
education institution for art studies, benefiting
from the tradition and experience in the area
of art education.
Counting all fields and modes of study, the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice has around 600 students in total. Its small size has an impact on good
communication and very friendly atmosphere.
A modern educational strategy based on a solid,
long-standing tradition helped to create a unique,
individualized educational offer that allows taking
personalised learning paths in the chosen field of
study.
In addition to regular training, the Academy offers
an opportunity to participate in extra-curricular
activities – workshops and projects, carried out
internally and in cooperation with many other
institutions.

REGION
COUNTRY
Katowice is the capital of Upper Silesia – the most
densely populated area in the South of Poland, its
history connected with industry and coalmining.
This region of mines and factories was especially
cherished and at the same time exploited during
the communism period, with its economic strategy
based on heavy industry and the working class.
Silesia, called back then “Polish Eldorado”, was
a destination of migrations of people from other
parts of Poland who were looking for better living
conditions. It is nowadays reflected in the social
structure which constitutes an interesting mix of
cultures. This politics of exploiting natural resources led to economic and ecological degradation of
all country, and particularly this region.
Poland is one of the largest countries in Central
and Eastern Europe, located between the Baltic
Sea to the North, and the Sudeten and Carpathian
Mountains to the South, in the basin of the Vistula
and Oder rivers. Polish landscape is diverse – it
includes a seaside with wide sandy beaches and
dunes, lake country, primeval forests and mountain ranges from the low Beskids to the rocky Tatry.
The capital is Warsaw.
Starting from the 1990s, there have been attempts
to change the image and associations, finding
new ways to express Silesian identity. Cultural and
artistic development marked one of these ways.
After difficult years of economic and political transformations, the changes are just now taking the
desired shape. An example are the efforts made ​​
to win the name of European Capital of Culture in
2016 for Katowice. The local governments began
noticing the potential for development of the
region in completely new areas, and the remnants
of industrial heritage are starting to be adapted in
a creative way.
ASP Katowice is an active participant of these
changes. With regional and EU support in recent
years it adapted for educational needs a former
military barracks building, came into possession of
its own Rondo Sztuki Art Gallery located in the city
centre, and began the construction of a modern
campus.
Poland is located in the temperate climate zone,
which means the presence of four seasons with
different climatic conditions. Summer temperatures can reach 38 degrees Celsius. Winter is characterized by temperatures dropping to 20 degrees
below zero and heavy snowfall and sleet.
Poland has centuries-old, at certain times dramatic
history, which is intrinsically linked with the history
of Europe, it also has a significant place in shaping
the world cultural heritage. While in Poland, it is
worth visiting cities with a distinguished tradition
that can boast of numerous historical monuments
and varied cultural offer – the most popular are
Krakow, Wroclaw, Warsaw and Gdansk.
TRADITIONS
Many festivals in Poland derive from the Christian
and national tradition and are accompanied by
meetings with family and friends, and exchanging
gifts. Celebration is connected with the consumption of traditional Polish food. Also on everyday basis, it is worth trying the local Polish cuisine. Bigos,
borscht, sour rye soup, blood sausage, sauerkraut,
sour milk, pierogi and schmaltz sandwiches are
some of the foods uncommon in other parts of
Europe.

this system, each student must obtain a total of
30 ECTS credits in each semester.

the programme provided at this time at your home

ACADEMIC CALENDAR
Classes are conducted in Polish, but if necessary it
is possible to communicate in English. Most classes are conducted in individual mode of corrections,
i.e. consultation with the teacher, supporting your
work on the assigned topic, but just as important
is your individual work. You have to reckon with the
fact that many tasks require buying art supplies,
making print-outs or models. These kinds of
expenses are covered by the student.
The basis of assessment are regular class attendance and practical realization of the art and design
tasks in the form and time determined by the
teacher.
Most of the courses end with a final examination
with the assessment of the work completed.
ASP foto archive
ASP Katowice uses the following grading scale:
Polish grade / Description
5.5excellent
5.0 very good
4.5 plus good
4.0good
3.5 plus satisfactory
3.0satisfactory
2.0 unsatisfactory, fail
During the final exam will receive a grade for each
selected course according to the Polish system of
assessments used at the Academy. Positive grade
at the same time confirms obtaining the ECTS
credits. Obtaining a negative grade for a course
is equivalent to the failure to obtain the required
ECTS credits.
The academic year is divided into two semesters,
each lasting 15 weeks.

ORGANIZATIONAL
SUPPORT
ASP Katowice does not have its own dormitory.
International Office can assist you in finding accommodation.
ASP Katowice uses two dorms in Katowice,
Silesian University of Technology “Babilon”
on Krasińskiego 25a and University of Silesia
(DS No. 7) at Studencka 16.
Approximate cost of a double room is about
450 PLN per month per person. Price includes
charges for electricity, heating, water, and internet.
If you are interested in accommodation in the
dormitory please let us know beforehand during
the application procedure.
Many students instead of dorm accommodation
decide to rent an apartment in Katowice. In that
case, you need to take care of it yourself. Sample
page for apartment rental agency in Katowice:
PIONIER real estate agency http://www.pio.pl
BUDDY SYSTEM
Students from the host institution are also involved
in the organization of the Erasmus exchange programme. In the first few days on campus you will
be assigned a buddy (Polish ASP student), who will
help you figure out practically the organization of
activities and adapt to the new environment.
STAY FORMALITIES
EU CITIZEN'S RESIDENCE CARD
EU citizens can enter Poland with their ID document (a valid travel document e.g. passport, or
another document certifying their identity and citizenship). For stay up to 3 months no legalization
of stay is necessary.
For stays exceeding 3 months, an EU citizen will
have to obtain a temporary residence permit (Karta
pobytu obywatela UE). In case of students, the residence permit is issued for one year. The residence
permit, once issued, will also entitle its holder to
take up work. The residence permit and the right
to work also extends to the immediate family, i.e.
spouse and children.
This document will be issued by the Department of
Citizenship and Foreign Nationals of the
Silesian Voivodship Office http://www.katowice.
uw.gov.pl/english/poland_and_silesia.html
STUDENTS FROM NON-EU/EEA
COUNTRIES
A student coming from a non-EU/EEA country can
enter the territory of Poland on the basis of a valid
passport and visa (if required). It is therefore
necessary to apply for a visa in a consulate for
the whole planned period of stay in Poland. The
student has to obtain the visa from the consulate
of Poland in their country of residence. The shortterm visa entitles to stay in Poland up to three
months, the long-term visa to stay up to one year.
In case of a study period longer than three months,
you should apply for a long-term visa. The prolongation of visa in Poland is only possible in case of
a force majeure or situation impossible to foresee
in the time of applying for the visa at the consulate.
The visa can be prolonged only once.
HEALTH INSURANCE
EU/EEA CITIZENS
Students from the European Union or European
Economic Area are entitled to medical services on
the basis of the European Health Insurance Card
(EHIC), which has replaced the old E111 form. It
should be issued by a domestic competent authority before arrival to Poland.
The institution responsible for health care in
Poland is the National Health Fund (Narodowy
Fundusz Zdrowia–NFZ).
To get treatment by a general practitioner (examination and consultation) you should go to a doctor
who has a contract with the NFZ and show your
European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or a replacement certificate.
To get treatment by a specialist, such as an obstetrician, dentist, dermatologist, venereologist,
oncologist, eye specialist or psychiatrist you do not
need a referral. To go to any other specialist you
need to see a general practitioner first. Standard
treatment by a specialist who has a contract with
the NFZ is free, but costs of above-standard services and materials have to be covered by the patient.
Detailed information concerning health care in
Poland can be found at: http://www.nfz.gov.pl/ue/
NON-EU/EEA CITIZENS
The students from non-EU/EEA countries should
purchase health insurance in their home country
before departure. According to state health regulations, foreigners (except the EU/EEA citizens, see
above) have to pay for medical consultation. The
cost is then reimbursed by their health insurance
company. Apart from the public medical care
system there is also a well-developed private sector.
You can also buy the Euro26 Card which insures
you in the event of an accident and gives you
discounts for products and services http://www.
euro26.org

Its most valuable historical districts include
miner’s settlements: Nikiszowiec and Giszowiec,
also call-ed garden-settlement.
In downtown Katowice, take a walk along the
Modernism Trail. This tourist route was developed
to familiarise visitors and residents of Katowice
with the architecture of the 1920s and 30s. Along
the route of 5.5 km we find the 16 most valuable
modernist buildings in Katowice, including the
Skyscraper on Żwirki i Wigury 15, and the monumental Regional Office built in the beginnings of
the 20th century.
Noteworthy is also the Academy of Music, the
oldest higher education institution in Upper Silesia
and the only one in Poland that provides education
in the field of pop and jazz music.
A sightseeing tour of Katowice can end at the 27th
floor of Altus tower, sipping coffee at the Sky Bar
and enjoying the breath-taking panorama of the city.

TOURIST ATTRACTIONS IN THE CITY
While in Katowice, the capital of Upper Silesia,
note the post-industrial character of the city.
OUT OF TOWN LEISURE
The rocky terrain of the Polish Jurassic Highland
and mountain hiking trails of Silesian Beskids and
Żywiec Beskids are the directions chosen by people
actively spending their free time outside the city.
Jurassic Highland is the rock climbing destination
in Poland. To get there, take a train or bus in the
direction of Zawiercie, Czestochowa, and Kraków.
The trip takes up to two hours. Beskids in turn offer
entertainment for skiers, cyclists and hikers. The
fastest access is by Silesian Rail, direction Bielsko-Biala or Wisła.
Lovers of historic old towns, museums and charming cafés will find them in Krakow, Wroclaw and
Warsaw. A trip by train from the railway station in
Katowice will take 1.5 hours to Krakow, 3 hours to
Wroclaw and 2.5 hours to Warsaw.
