General questions about courses

What is the diference between the lecture classes and the seminar classes?
Lectures are usually given to a bigger number of students. Students sit in class, listen to the teacher and take notes. The seminars are classes in smaller groups, they are more like practising, traning, calculating, performing, there are more disscussions, presentations. The presence at the seminars is usually part of the final grade. Students are usually allowed two absences in a course per semester. If you are going to miss, you should let the lecturer know beforehead. Some courses have just lectures, some just seminars and some have lectures and seminars. If a course has both the seminars and the lectures you should select timetable for both (the seminar and the lecture).

Where can I find a course syllabus?
Please follow this path: InSIS –> Public Information Portal -> Course catalogue and then search for your course syllabus (the easiest way – use code of the course and select the right academic year).

If  the course  does not have "in English" in its title, what is the language of instruction?
In case the course does not have "in English" in its name, this does not neccessarily mean it would be given in a different language. Some of the courses might be in German, Spanish, French or Russian, but these have it in the name or in the syllabus. Apart from the courses of Czech language, none of the courses offered to Exchange students is taught in Czech.

In case I have courses from different faculties, how many minutes does it take to walk from one to the other?
All the courses offered to exchange students are taught in one campus - Žižkov (even though the faculty may be different). For more information, see this web page.

What does it mean when I have a prerequisites after selecting a course? 
To find out what the prerequisites means, please, click on the name of the course and it will forward you to the syllabus of the course and there you will find out the meaning.



Course (Pre)registration

When do I register for courses?
The course registration starts in mid June/January. Detailed information will be sent by email or can be found in Academic calendar.

I am staying for the whole academic year. Do I have to pre-register for courses for Fall and Spring Semester at once?
No, the pre-registration is done before every semester separately.

Is there any difference between exam ECTS and credit ECTS?
No, there is no difference for Exchange students.

What does it mean if I cannot choose a timetable for a course?
The course will not be opened in the upcoming semester.

Can I choose a course from the Course catalogue even if it does not show in the pre-registration?
No, only the courses shown in the pre-registration are available for Exchange students.

What if my courses clash?
You cannot attend two lessons at the same time. You have to choose which course you prefer.

How can I change the course after the first automated registration i.e. I have the minimum amount of credits that I cannot be dropped below?
Add another course first, so you have a required amount of ECTS credits and then delete the course you do not want to take.

I did not get the courses I need/want - what am I supposed to do?
In this case, it would be advisable to follow these steps:

  1. Check the InSIS regularly. The Information System operates on rule 1st come 1st served.
  2. You can also contact the lecturers. If you do so, you can ask for an over-capacity registration permission. However, bear in mind that the permission depends solely on the lecturers and the class specifications.
  3. Try to visit the lecture during the 1st week of classes. Do not forget about the Add-drop period (refer to the Academic Calendar) during which you can change the courses. If you intend to change the course after this period, your request would not be granted.

How do I see what courses am I registered to?
See your Timetable in InSIS or you can refer to the E-index.

Intensive courses

Do I get ECTS credits for intensive courses?
You will get ECTS credits for the intensive courses. The intensive courses are proper courses, they just have a different timing.

How do I know how many ECTS credits is an intensive course worth?
You can check in the course syllabus in the Course catalogue on InSIS.

What if intensive courses overlap with my regular courses?
It is very likely that an intensive course will overlap with another regular course. Since it is not possible to be on two places at once, one of the classes is not attended in the time of the clash (usually the regular class). It is more than wise to plan the intensives carefully and if you are going to be absent, you should let the respective lecturer know beforehead. Usually in the regular course, there are 1-2 absences possible – always check with your lecturer first!

How many intensive courses can I attend/register?
You can register a maximum of two intensive courses (per semester).
Intensive courses are usually taught by visiting professors and we cannot guarantee that all courses will take place and that they will be held in a given period.
