Courses Taught in English and in Other Foreign Languages

a) Every faculty offers a variety of courses and seminars in English. Links to the websites of the faculties:


Please note that students can only apply to the CU faculty participating in the cooperation with their home university. List of participating faculties will appear in the online application. Should students wish to study at a non-participating faculty, they are recommended to contact our office in advance.


b) A list of courses in English, German and French can be found on the website for Erasmus+ exchange students. These courses are available to non-European students.


c) There is also a central database of courses is the Student Information System.

Insert the name of the searched subject in the box "title" and all relevant courses at various CU faculties will appear. Or choose a faculty/and department and language and all available courses will show up.


Nevertheless, this list gives an overview of all courses ever offered so it cannot be regarded as up-to-date but courses tend to be the same to a high degree every academic year. They are always updated shortly before the start of the semester. The choice of courses is discussed after arrival and may be changed according to new circumstances.


It is necessary to click on the selected course and check in its description:

• faculty and department by which it is offered

• language of instruction

• semester


Important


Undergraduate exchange students are asked to apply to at least four courses, graduate students to at least three ones. Students are expected to check in advance whether the selected courses will be approved for equivalency by their home university.


Students are required to select courses at one faculty, possibly from the offerings of the department corresponding to their major. This department will be the student’s “host” department to which the application materials will be sent.


Should students wish to apply to one or two courses at another CU faculty, they are recommended to contact our office and discuss this option individually.


Courses offered to Erasmus program students are available for non-European exchange students. Also programs in English offered as paid programs for foreign students are available (free of charge) with the exception of The East and Central European Studies program at the Faculty of Arts (“CUFA” codes) and The Undergraduate Program in Central European Studies (“YBAU” codes) at the Faculty of Humanities.


Exchange students applying to the Faculty of Humanities are asked to select at least three regular courses. They can also apply to one or two UPCES courses (“YBAU” codes), but enrolment cannot be guaranteed. The CET program (“YBAC” codes) is available only for those exchange students who will spend full academic year at the Faculty of Humanities.


Exchange students applying to the Faculty of Arts are asked to select at least three regular courses. They can also apply to one or two courses of the ECES program (i. e. with CUFA codes), but enrolment cannot be guaranteed as ECES is a paid program.


Useful information can also be found on the following website.


Accommodation

Please note that exchange students need to have an accommodation agreement to apply for the visa.

Accommodation of exchange students in student dormitories is arranged by the receiving faculties. Most exchange students are accommodated at the Větrník, Hvězda or Kajetánka dormitories. A catalogue of dormitories as well as COVID-19 measures are available at the website.


The approximate price for 1 month/1 bed (rooms with shared bathroom facilities in the corridor):

Double room: 3 200 CZK

Single room: 4 300 CZK


Rooms in a "flat cell system" sharing bathroom facilities in the “flat cell”:

Double room (two double rooms share the bathroom facilities): 4 800 CZK

Single room (two single rooms share the bathroom facilities): 6 000 CZK


Students will be required to pay booking deposit of CZK 1800 approximately 2 months before their arrival to Czechia and moving into the dormitory.

If the student moves out of the dormitory before the end of semester, there is a fine deducted from the deposit.

In case you wish to acquire private housing, we recommend looking for it as soon as possible.
