How to become a student


Step no. 1.

Create an account in the Internet registration system for candidates (IRK) available on the recruitment site of Opole University of Technology . After your account has been created, your personal login and password will be generated.

Step no. 2.

Log in to the registration system (IRK) and choose the faculty. After choosing the faculty, your individual bank account number will be generated into which you should transfer the recruitment fee. 

In case of registration to the  IInd  cycle studies, make sure that the completed Ist cycle education allows you to pursue registration to the chosen faculty within the IInd cycle. You can verify that by viewing the  CATALOGUE OF RELATED FACULTIES displayed in the tab under the heading “Catalogue of related faculties”.

Step no. 3.

Transfer of the recruitment fee. The recruitment fee is contributed for each chosen faculty into the individual account generated by the IRK system (the account number is different for each candidate). 

The recruitment fee is not subject to reimbursement. 

Due to the fact that the time between the issuing of the payment till registering the money transfer into the OUTech bank account may last up to a couple of days (it is dependent on the place and method of payment), it is advisable to make the payment in a proper advance, before the completion date of on-line registration. To accelerate the money transfer process, we kindly advice to use the Internet banks.

Step no. 4.

After making the payment at the IRK programme, it is expected to type in the grades (in case of the previous form of secondary school leaving examination/ matura) or the percentage points (in case of the new form of matura) and in case of the IInd cycle studies, it is required to include a grade indicated in the diploma.

Step no. 5.

After termination of the on-line registering process in the IRK system, an announcement “qualified” or “not qualified” will be generated in the time specified by the recruitment schedule. You can also check the status in the recruitment office.

Step no. 6.

After completion of the qualification phase, qualified people shall provide a full set of documents to the recruitment office. Detailed information concerning the method of submitting the documents can be found  here
