Before you start your studies

STUDY VISA

Within three working days either register with the Foreign Police if you are on a degree-course and your visa is marked as D/VC. If your visa is marked as D/VR, you should go to the Visa office (OAMP). The embassy usually informs you on the necessity to go there for the biometrics (fingerprints and photograph taking). If in doubts, check with the International Office. At the Foreign Police you need to take with you your passport, proof of your health insurance and the same card you filled in at the dormitory. Afterwards open a bank account in the Czech Republic and get a local SIM card. The International Office will assist with advice.

✔ Remember that you will need to prolong your visa or residence when it expires. Attention: The process of visa renewal should start at least 2 months before your visa expires! Please keep in mind that we are required by law to inform the Czech Ministry of Interior of your student status. So if you stop studying, your visa will be terminated.

What is expected of students?

 

 

REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS IN THE FIRST YEAR OF STUDY

According to the Study and Examination Regulations of TUL, the student must acquire 15 credits during the 1st semester of studies; and 35 credits during the first year of studies.

 

 

CREDIT AND EXAMINATION SYSTEM

Studies in Bachelor, Master and doctoral programme programmes are realized by means of a credit system. Each subject included in the study programme is assigned a certain number of credits. A student obtains credits after passing the subject; i.e. in the case of subjects concluded by a credit after passing the credit, in the case of subjects concluded by an examination (or by a credit and an examination) after passing the examination. At the same time, the student must complete the subject in the academic year in which s/he has registered for it, and at the latest within the deadline set in the given academic year's Calendar.

Minimum of 15 credits for Winter Semester - It is the responsibility of first year students (both Bachelor's and Continuing Master's) to earn a minimum of 15 credits in the first/winter semester of their studies. The cutoff date for fulfilling this requirement is the end of the examination period of the winter semester.

According to the study programme, a student must obtain the number of credits equal to at least the standard number of years of studies multiplied by sixty (180 credits in Bachelor’s, 120 credits in Master’s, 240 credits in Doctoral study programme). The credits must be obtained for subjects required by the study programme and the study plan.

 

 

EXAMINATIONS

Examinations and remedial examinations are usually organized during the lesson-free period specified by the Calendar of the given academic year. With the teacher´s approval, examinations can be taken also during the holidays or during the semester, but at the latest by the deadline specified by the Calendar of the given academic year.

 

 

ENROLMENT FOR STUDIES

An applicant becomes a student on the day of enrolment for studies. A student can be enrolled for the next academic year or semester provided s/he fulfils the conditions for enrolment into the next year or semester of study set out in the relevant study programme and in the Study and Examination Regulations.

 

 

REGISTRATION FOR SUBJECTS

A student shall register for subjects in such a way that s/he keeps the study structure given by the Study Programme regarding their status. A student can register any TUL subject as an optional subject within the block of optional subjects provided the Dean of his/her faculty agrees to this and also provided the Head of the Department guaranteeing the subject grants approval based on the number of enrolled students. At the beginning of each academic year a student registers for all subjects of his/her study plan in STAG (our Study Office will assist you by this!).

As a first-year student, you will only enroll in the winter semester at first. Pre-registration for the summer semester is done in January.

 

 

STUDY MATERIALS

Some of your teachers may have sets of study materials available to view or download. There are several ways how they share the materials with students. You should be informed about this possibility by each teacher in introduction to the course.
Recently, e-learning support was prepared for most of the courses taught at the Faculty of Economics. It is more complex and interactive than basic storage sites.


How to register into the selected course in e-learning?

 

 

GRADING

The examiner evaluates an examination by the following grades:

Czech Grade ECTS Grade Grade
1 A Excellent
1- B Excellent minus
2 C Very good
2- D Very good minus
3 E Good
4 F Failed


The teacher will inform you in advance about the requirements for each grade.

 

 

SCHEDULE

A student composes his/her preliminary personal study plan for the following academic year from the Study Plan by means of pre-registration into the IS STAG, i.e. by registration to study particular subjects in the following academic year in the terms given by the schedule of the IS STAG.

The pre-registration is compulsory; without registering a subject into the IS STAG, it is not possible to complete the subject (credit, graded credit, examination in the given semester) and receive credits for its completion. Pre-registration is usually in June and at the beginning of September. There is usually an adjusting pre-registration for the summer semester during January. Applicants who have been enrolled into the 1st year of a Bachelor or a Master study programme, which does not follow up a Bachelor study programme (henceforth “non-follow-up study programme”), are registered into the IS STAG by the study department.
By registering for the subjects in the academic year or semester (compulsory, required optional or optional), the student’s personal study plan is confirmed and it becomes compulsory for the student!
If you don’t not fulfil the requirements for obtaining credits for a subject, you can register for this subject two more times (for the third registration you have to apply by the Dean).

 

 

FINAL MASTER THESES

Studies in Master study programmes are completed by the State Final Examination, a part of which is the defence of a Master Thesis. The Master Thesis is assessed by its supervisor and an opponent. The opponents of Master Theses are usually not TUL employees.

 

Students register for the framework topic of the Master Thesis during the 1st year of Master study (during April, a year before finishing the study) at one of the departments in a given term. The final thesis is to be worked out within the framework of the Diploma Thesis I and II course. The student has to meet a deadline and submit the thesis to the head of the appropriate department.
The topics of final Master Thesis for assignment are available in the IS STAG since mid-March.

✔ Please login into IS STAG, then go to MY STUDY – THESIS TOPICS. Select the academic year 2022/2023 and you can search for topics in English according to your interest or intended specialization.

Students should follow the requirements given by the supervisor of selected topic, and of course, they can consult the selected thesis proposals with possible supervisors.
The registration of the topics of the master thesis usually starts in IS STAG on 1 April. Each student can register up to three topics.
During April, supervisors will select students (they can choose more students per topic). Students will confirm their interest and opt out of other registrations. In case the selected subject is not confirmed, the student selects other available topics.

 

After registering with the supervisor, the student will complete the background for the specific topic assignment of the FT into the IS STAG (tab of FT topics):

The thesis supervisor checks the data entered by the student into IS STAG and, if necessary, agrees with the student on the adjustments. After the final adjustments, the teacher chooses "the teacher's approval of the supplementary background of the FT and saves it.
The head of the department will approve the specific assignment in IS STAG through the bulk approval of topics.
Subsequently, the dean approves the assignment through mass approval in IS STAG.

In the event of disapproval by the Dean or the Head of the Department, the assignment shall be returned to the student.
After approval by the Dean, no later than 31. 10. in AY the secretariat of the relevant department generates an assignment from the IS STAG, which will be a part of the printed FT.

 

You have the right to change the topic of your master thesis once, if needed.

 

 

PROCESSING OF FINAL THESIS

In June during your 1st year of study, there is given a diploma seminar which serves as a guide for the processing of Final Thesis. Participation in this seminar is obligatory! The credit (DS1PE) is awarded by the supervisor of the diploma thesis the next academic year on the basis of participation in the seminar.

During your 2nd year of study you are supposed to work on your final thesis in co-operation with your supervisor.

 

 

STATE FINAL EXAMINATION

The State Final Examination is taken in front of a committee for SFE, usually twice a year during the lesson-free period.

 

A student can sit for SFE or its last part if the following conditions have been met:
