In order to have a better idea of the current academic year schedule including holiday breaks, semester dates, examination period dates, etc. the following list is the scheduled version.
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.
New students (provided they want a place at the dorm) have to choose a particular Dormitory from the List and then they need to choose a specific type of the room according to the preference and the List of prices. After that they will just inform the about their decision and the Faculty will make the booking. Students will then be notified by the about the reservation and they will receive a copy of the Accommodation Contract.
Experienced students can take care of any accommodation issue (renewing the contract, changing the dormitory, etc.) on their own.
Merit 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 at the end of each academic year automatically if they fall into the best 10% category.
Accommodation scholarship - some financial help for students to ease their living expenses. It is not automatically given and students have to ask for it through the Application system of Charles University after they start of the winter semester.
The tuition fee is 2000 €/year.
