    General study principles

    The student's compulsory participation in the full-time form of study of the following subjects:

    • General and inorganic chemistry I – practice
    • Chemical and balance calculations
    • Mathematics A, B – practice
    • All laboratory classes
    • Physical education – practice

    The basic prerequisite for successful completion of the study is regular and active participation in lectures and seminars. The method of control, participation evaluation, and compensation for non-participation are determined by the Department Head and the Course Guarantor. For a student with an extraordinary study plan (hereinafter referred to as "ESP"), the Dean may decide otherwise on participation in the exercises and the Physical Education subject.

    Study obligations

    • Fulfillment of study obligations is bound to the continuity of study obligations. The requirement for continuity and continuity conditions are determined by the study program guarantor and the course guarantor.
    • The student has the right to two resits for study obligations ending with an exam. However, they must respect the terms announced by the department conducting the subject. The right to a resit expires if the student has not used the opportunity to pass the exam within regular terms. Determining the number of resits for study obligations ending with a credit or a classified credit is in the competence of the subject guarantor.
    • A student can register in the same study obligation a maximum of three times. In the case of a re-registered study obligation, the student has the same conditions for fulfilling it as during the previous registration.
    • The semester ends with fulfilling the study obligations prescribed by the study plan and obtaining the number of credits corresponding to at least thirty times the number of already completed semesters no later than the end of the examination period of the given semester.
    • To register in the next semester of the study program, the student must obtain at least 15 credits from compulsory and optional subjects in the previous semester.
    • To enroll in the next year of the study program, a student may lack a maximum of 15 credits out of the number of credits corresponding to thirty times the number of semesters already completed.
    • At the beginning of the semester, departments will publish the requirements for credits, classified credits, and exams, including the syllabus of subjects and running control conditions.
    • Students register/unregister for the exams via the Study Information System (SIS). If a student has failed to unregister from the examination for serious reasons, he/she may apologize directly to the examiner. Unexcused absence or unrecognized excuse for absence from the exam is assessed by the classification "F".
    • Test classification: "A" (excellent), "B" (very good), "C" (good), "D" (satisfactory), "E" (sufficient), "F" (insufficient). The examination classification or credit classification is published in the SIS by the examining teacher.

    Foreign Police Reporting Duty

    EU and Non-EU students Living in Residence Halls

    Registration of your stay in the Czech Republic at the Czech Foreign Police is not necessary if you are staying in the Volha or Sázava residence halls; the residence halls will register you automatically on your behalf.

    EU students in Private Residences

    If you are from the EU and will not live in Volha or Sázava, you are obliged to register at the Foreign Police office within 30 days of your arrival if your stay in the Czech Republic exceeds 30 days.

    Non-EU Students in Private Residences

    All non-EU students who do not live in Volha or Sázava must register at the Czech Foreign Police within three days after their arrival. This duty also applies to those visa students who are due to pick up their long-term or permanent residence permits in the Czech Republic.

    Registration of European Health Insurance Card 

    Students from an EU country need to register their national public health insurance (EHIC blue card) with a Czech health insurance company - VZP is recommended as the largest health care provider in the Czech Republic with the highest number of cooperating doctors. After showing the EHIC card or confirmation that substitutes the card, the health insurance company will immediately issue a registration document with a registration number with a Czech health insurance company. Later, if you need to see a doctor, take this document along with the EHIC card.

    Students from Turkey need to take to the VZP office the paper they have from their Health insurance provider in Turkey and register it as well.

    Registration can be done online. See the guideline and download the registration form.
