Our Prep School will prepare you for undergraduate studies at School of Form. You will develop your English proficiency and practice drawing. You will also be introduced to the European culture.


Aside from an intensive course in English, the participants of PREP SCHOOL will take part in classes, which will allow them to prepare better for design studies, and learn drawing as well as basic concepts in culture and design.

During the classes devoted to drawing, they will learn different techniques of design drawing, as well as life drawing and using their imagination, whilst working with the students of the School of Form. During the classes devoted to culture, which will be conducted in the form of trips, presentations, lectures and discussions, they will get to know the city and its surrounding areas, as well as museums and galleries, and share their experiences gathered in other countries and from other cultures.

After a year in the School of Form, they will feel right at home in the University and in Poznań, and will be able to communicate freely in English, ready to take on the bachelor degree studies in Industrial Design at School of Form.

Format of Classes

Programme consists of 600 hours of classes during the year. Each week, the students take part in 20 hours of classes. During the 1st semester, 16 hours are devoted to intensive classes in the English language, and the rest is devoted to drawing. During the 2nd semester, the number of language learning hours is reduced to 12; 4 hours are devoted to drawing, and 4 hours to classes on cultural notions.

The classes will take place from Monday till Thursday, thus allowing students to go on tourist trips or work during the rest of the week. The city of Poznan is the great place to sightsee itself as well as the starting point for travelling through Europe, thanks to its location in the centre between Warsaw and Berlin and the convenient Ławica Airport, offering flights to many Eurpean destinations. You can easily reach most of the capital cities in Europe within 2-3 hours flight!

PREP SCHOOL students have their own mentor, who is in charge of administrative duties and will provide student support, helping them adapt to the new environment.

Are you uncertain of your language skills? Do you want to spend some time working on the portfolio? PREP SCHOOL at School of Form is the perfect place for you. Feel the atmosphere of design studies, try our workshops, meet design experts, researchers and architects.
