On-line learning

Our Academy is now implementing elements of on line learning: consultations, corrections, transfer of teaching materials.

You will get information individually from the teachers via e-mails. Of course it is not possible to conduct all courses this way but according to new announcement by Vice-Rector for Education and Student Affairs prof. ASP dr hab. Sylwia Jakubowska-Szycik (dated 17.03.2020)  there is a recommendation to work on-line as far as possible.

Please contact the academic teachers on theirs official e- mail addresses, they are available on the website:


Recommendations for students living in ASP Students House:

The accommodation of new people in student dormitories is suspended and external visitors are forbidden.

In other matters, the recommendation of the Chief Sanitary Inspector applies.

The Chief Sanitary Inspector recommends that students leave their student housing if they have the option of other accommodation. The stay of other students in student dormitories should be organized in a way that allows maximum limitation of contact between people, preferably in separate rooms with a separate sanitary facility.

MNISW recommendation: Please note that universities must provide accommodation for students (including foreigners) who cannot (for various reasons) leave the dormitory.


Administration Staff:

The Academy administration works on a part-time system during the suspension period.
