On 5th of December we wake up early. Summer semester variable course registration
On the 5th of December a registration for variable courses is going to open. At the University of Opole each semester (apart from the first one) you can choose one course from any faculty of the University. On the 5th of December you register to a course you are going to attend in the summer semester. All the courses take place on Mondays’ evenings – this way they will not collide with your other classes.
Note that the places for each course are limited. If you want to make sure to you will be able to register to the class of your choice, I recommend waking up early and registering as soon as the registration opens (which is at 8). You will be competing for the places with your fellow students. Moreover, if there are only a couple of people registered for a course, it will not run. So choose wisely and remember you can deregister and choose another course until 7th December.
Choosing a course can be time consuming, so I recommend you spend some time on Sunday looking through them. It feels like shopping.

In order to register, go to the end of the page, find this year’s summer semester and click on the shopping basket (you will only be able to do that successfully starting from 5th December’s morning).
You will be asked to choose a group (usually there is only one). When you choose it, you should see a note confirming the registration.
Note that the Physical Education Centre’s instructors may not speak English very well and you might need the help of your Polish-speaking friends or groupmates if there is any theoretical knowledge they would need to share with you.
In case of doubts, don’t hesitate to ask your more experienced co-students for assistance.
