Please, when arranging your travels to the Czech Republic bear in mind that three of Charles University faculties are located outside Prague: the Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové, the Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Králové and the Faculty of Medicine in Plzeň (Pilsen).
On your arrival in the Czech Republic, first and foremost get to your accommodation and make yourself as comfortable as possible.
Prior to starting your studies you have to enrol in the University. Your enrolment consists of registration at your host faculty by the Faculty coordinator or relevant International / Erasmus Office.
Your registration will be arranged during the Orientation Programme (1-5 days depending on the size of your host faculty and number of incoming students) or other meetings with the Faculty coordinator/s. You will get further important information about study practicalities - including getting a Faculty coupon for your Charles University Card so you can have access to libraries and internet, your 50% public transport discount, access to cafeterias and so on.
For more information, carefully read your Erasmus Arrival Sheet that will be sent together with your Letter of Admission as well as all emails from your host faculty coordinator/s and your Accommodation Voucher, or contact your host Faculty coordinator.
