All classes will be given in English in a computer laboratory on FESM premises (Lab. 1). Hence, students do not have to bring their own laptops. Although if someone prefers his or her own laptop, free wireless connection will be available.

Electricity in Poland is 230V, 50Hz AC. Power outlets are round with two round-pin sockets. Thus, if you are coming from for example Australia, Ireland, Italy or the United Kingdom, you may need a plug converter.
