Each student enrolled in TUL is issued a picture identification card. The card verifies that the holder is eligible to use TUL’s library and also entitles a student to use several discounts on train, bus, and tram fares (if the student is less than 26 y.o.), as well as the museum, theatre, and cinema tickets.
The card's validity must be prolonged each semester. Stamps are valid until 31st of March or 31st of October (depends on the semester you started studying in Poland). During a one-month period before these dates, you have to collect another stamp from the IFE office to have a card valid for next semester. All TUL's students, including exchange students, are charged an administrative fee of 22 PLN for issuing the card.
In order to get the card you have to provide SAO in advance with:
- ID photo (proper quality – should be passport-sized, cannot be a printout),
- EU medical card/health insurance valid for your stay in Poland,
- civil liability insurance in English, Spanish, or French sent by email to SAO.
Having these documents is absolutely indispensable if you wish to study at TUL. We also recommend having your personal accident insurance valid in Europe.
After providing SAO with all the above-mentioned documents, it is necessary for you to pay for the student card at the post office. You will get the red form (photo below) filled in with your personal data. Wait for the info from SAO - they will let you know when the student cards are available to collect.
