SWPS University is one of the very few institutions in Poland authorized to conduct State Certification Examination in Polish as a Foreign Language.

The State Certificate Examinations in Polish as a Foreign Language provide an official confirmation of language competencies, regardless of the teaching institution, where the bearer studied Polish, or the education program, handbooks and methods that were used to teach the language. Polish language competency is defined as the ability to understand contemporary written and spoken Polish as well as the capability to speak and write in Polish.

Detailed conditions, type of examinations and issuing of certificates as well as the standards for all skill levels are defined by the Regulation of 26 February 2016 on the Polish language examinations, issued by the Minister of Science and Higher Education, (Journal of Laws 2016, item 405 volume 1).
