Organization of the First Year of the Follow-up Master’s Study

On this page, you will find the obligations of all students in the first year of the follow-up master’s studies, including information on the assignment of thesis topics and the course of the state final exam in economics. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the study office, Bc. Martina Chvojkova (martina.chvojkova@tul.cz), the student advisor, Linda Hrouzková  (linda.hrouzkova@tul.cz), or the vice dean for studies, Ing. Otakar Ungerman, Ph.D.





You need to generate a student number from your Stag application for studies; it will look like EYY000XXX, e.g., E23000123 (E as EF TUL; YY indicates the year of entry; XXX student three-digit number).

IS STAG and LIANE – You will get your login data during the study registration from the study office.
Enrollment for Studies - The incoming student must enrol (register) for studies. This term is given by the dean, and the study office informs you about it by email. In case of late arrival, please inform our Admission Office (admissions.ef@tul.cz).





It is the duty of each student to register for the courses according to your Study Plan.

✔ As a first-year student, you are registered with the help of the Study Office only for the winter semester.

Pre-registration of courses for the summer semester takes place in January.



First-year students (both bachelor’s and follow-up master’s) must obtain a minimum of 15 credits in their studies’ first/winter semester.
The deadline for fulfilling these conditions is the end of the examination period of the winter semester.



Since the middle of March, students will see in IS STAG the list of the framework topics of diploma theses offered by supervisors in a given academic year (My studies> Thesis topics > given academic year).
Registration of the Thesis Topic – Registration of the DT topic takes place through IS STAG every year on April 1 (Thesis topics > given academic year).

✔ A student can choose and register up to three topics (first registration means higher priority, second registered topic gets priority no. 2, etc.).

After  topic registration, a student must respond to all requirements of the given framework topic and contact the DT supervisor (personally or by email, as specified) by the deadline.
Assignment of the Thesis Topic – More than one student can apply for one topic; however, the supervisor will assign the topic to a student (or students) who followed instructions and introduced their idea of the future DT. 

✔ Once a student has been assigned one of the framework topics, they must opt out of the other topics, thereby freeing them up for others.



Every May, a mandatory seminar is organized for the subject Diploma Seminar (S1).
Students will obtain all the essential information on proceeding with their thesis there.
Participation in this seminar is compulsory.

An exact term of the diploma seminar will be published in the Calendar of Academic Year or provided by Ing. Athanasios Podaras, Ph.D.

After successful exams in Microeconomics 2 and Macroeconomics 2, a student can register for the State Final Examination in Economics.

✔ At least 35 Credits for an Academic Year – Students must earn at least 35 credits each academic  year to continue their studies. The deadline to fulfil this condition is the end of the summer semester’s examination period or the academic year’s end. It is given by the Calendar of Academic Year.

The Final State Examination in Economics takes place three times per academic year:

January: 15 January 2024
June: 10 June 2024
August: 28–29 August 2024

✔ Registration for the SZZE – Students must register for SZZE in IS STAG as for a regular exam.




The list of General Topics for the State Exam in Economics is available here at the bottom of the page.



The examination commissions are formed after the deadline for registration. The schedules of the examination commissions are published on the faculty website.

✔ On the Day of the SZZE - Students are expected to wear an appropriate formal dress, bring a valid student card (or another ID card) and provide a print-out form from IS STAG confirming successful completion of both Macroeconomics II and Microeconomics II courses.
✔ They must be present at Building H at least 40 minutes before the beginning of their time slot for the exam in case the examination schedule is shifted. It may happen when the prior student withdraws from the examination or is late. Be careful, an absence from the examination without an excuse is considered a failed defence attempt!!!



The student is summoned by the commission secretary (mostly, they are doctoral students).

✔ The students identify themselves to the secretary with a valid ID card (ISIC, passport, etc.) and show the Study Progress Form (confirming that they have completed the courses Microeconomics 2 and Macroeconomics 2).
✔ The student then draws two (random) exam questions – one question is from Microeconomics and one from Macroeconomics.
✔ The students then have 20 minutes to prepare their answers to the questions – blank papers and pens are provided on the table. After preparation time, students are summoned to the commission; they can take their preparatory notes with them.
✔ The entire exam in front of the commission takes about 20 minutes – students are supposed to convince the committee of their knowledge of the drawn topics. Students should spend half the allotted time (i.e. 10 minutes) on each question. A blackboard and markers are available to the students once they are in front of the commission.

SZZE Results – The head committee decides on the method of announcing the results, which can be as follows:

1. Individually after each student’s exam: After the examination, a student is asked to leave the examination room for a moment. Then, the commission agrees on a result, which is immediately announced to the student.
2. Collectively in groups: Students are called back before the committee to hear the result after examining the morning/afternoon group of students.




At the beginning of each semester, an information meeting is held for each study year, where the vice-dean for study affairs, together with the student’s advisor (and possibly also the study guarantor), will visit the students in one of the joint lectures and introduce them to all the responsibilities that await them in the given semester.

✔ There is a teaching quality assessment in IS STAG during each exam period. Here, the students can comment both on the development of the faculty and on the individual courses they studied in the given semester. Evaluations can be provided anonymously. Students’ opinions are very important to the faculty; therefore, they are welcome to give feedback.


Students in the first semester of their first year of study cannot participate in ERASMUS+ mobilities, but can apply for mobility in the second year.

✔ The selection procedure for the next academic year is announced yearly at the end of November/beginning of December and lasts until the first half of January.

✔ During the winter semester, an extraordinary selection procedure for mobilities in the summer semester of the given academic year may (or may not) be announced.
