ECTS course information and Curriculum
Poland is one of the leading countries conforming to the guidelines from the Bologna Process in European higher education. The degree system based on the Bachelor's, Masters and Ph.D. structure has been successfully implemented together with the ECTS credits system. By adapting to the European standard in higher education, it has become easier for students who complete all or part of their education in Poland to obtain recognition of their qualifications in other countries.
All study programs at the Medical University of Warsaw are measured in terms of ECTS credits. All courses have a number of credits allocated reflecting the time that an average student will need to attend the course and finish it. The credit is the total of all study activities for one course: lectures, seminars, practical classes, study time, preparation for examinations, writing essays, etc. A full-time one-year study program amounts to 60 credits (30 credits per semester), which comprises a student workload of about 1500 to 1800 hours. It may look different for each individual student depending on their capacities, skills, foreknowledge and efforts.
A full-time five-year study course amounts to 360 ECTS credits which comprises a total student workload of about 5400 hours.
Primarily in the first and second year, students study core subjects in some basic sciences including biochemistry, chemistry, mathematics and statistics, microbiology, molecular genetics, nutrition and physiological science. To complement these scientific disciplines, there are subjects in various pharmaceutical sciences presented in the first three years. These subjects cover organic and medicinal agents, pharmaceutical microbiology, pharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics. Together, the pharmaceutical science and basic science subjects provide a solid foundation for studies in the professional aspects of pharmacy, such as pharmacy practice. Our five-year MPharm degree enables you to undertake that training in two six-month periods as part of the degree. This enables you to sit for your professional examination and hence register as a pharmacist immediately after graduation.
