Credit System

Charles University also uses the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). The ECTS is a credit system based on relative student workload.

This involves lectures, practicals, and self-study and includes all the work required to prepare for examinations. The basic allocation of academic credits in ECTS is 60 credits per year of studies, i.e., 30 credits per semester. Where a course is completed by a study requirement other than an examination (e.g. course work or a seminar paper), it is not graded, but is recorded as a Zápočet (Credit), with only two possible outcomes: Pass or Fail.


How can I make a reservation at the university dormitories? When should I book my accommodation?

If you are enrolling in your first year at our Faculty, our Student Administration office will be happy to help you with your accommodation reservation at one of your preferred dormitories. Contact us at study@fhs.cuni.cz and we will send you a reservation form based on which we will communicate on your behalf with the university Dormitories and Refectories during the booking process. After your first year, the Faculty will no longer provide reservations for you and you should arrange your accommodation on your own.

We suggest that you book accommodation as soon as possible, as student dormitories and apartments are usually in high demand in Prague. Therefore, we suggest making your reservation well in advance – ideally, several months before the start of your studies.



Scholarships and Funding

  • According to the rules of the Rectorate of Charles University students studying in a foreign language and selfpayers are not entitled for accommodation and social scholarship.

  • Our Faculty does not provide any grants or other funding options that are intended to cover the tuition fees of foreign-language study programmes.

  • Nevertheless, there are other options for financing your studies - merit-based scholarship or financial funding by national governments and other non-state institutions ( Faculty Scholarships and Funding).

  • Merit-based scholarship - issued to the best 10% of students according to their results in each academic year and to their studying program. Students receive this scholarship after the end of each academic year automatically if they fall into the best 10% category ( Scholarship for Outstanding Academic Achievement).

Student Life

What makes studying at FHS even more fulfilling is participation in its student associations and clubs. Students are free to choose from all sorts of options from a movie club to a wide range of sports, music and other creative activities, and can even apply for financial support of their leisure activities. By taking part in these projects along with their studies, students have a great potential in developing their social skills.
