Health insurence

Incoming students are obliged to have a full health insurance for the entire period of their stay in Poland.
Citizens of EU/EEA are entitled to receive the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), which is honoured in Poland.
The students from non-EU/EEA countries should purchase health insurance in their home countries before departure.

Language requirements

Studying in Lublin may differ from studying in other countries. Teaching may take place in small groups (tutorials and seminars) as well as in large groups (lectures). The classes are normally held in Polish, but for Erasmus students – in English. Incoming students need to be able to participate actively in class discussions, follow the lectures, write the essays and interact socially with other
students. That is why incoming students MUST have adequate English language proficiency prior to arrival in Lublin. There is no official English language requirement for the ERASMUS programme, however, students who do not have an adequate command of English (at least at the B2 level) will experience great difficulty in understanding lectures, producing written work and sitting examinations, as well as integrating into the life of Lublin.


Accommodation at UMCS is arranged in UMCS’s student residence halls by the Erasmus Team. It is assigned on a first come, first served basis. Students are housed in double rooms. Single rooms are not available. Accommodation is provided for the period corresponding to a student’s study at UMCS. Students are notified of the details of accommodation in the Letter of Acceptance. Currently, incoming students can find their accommodation in one of three available student residence halls (described below). The student residence halls are located near the university’s educational buildings, in the city centre. Every student residence hall offers its dwellers a club room, a TV room, and “quiet study” rooms.
