What if my visa isn't ready on time?

Students should be in touch with Klára Němečková regarding their visa status and when they expect to receive the visa. Depending on the timeline, some exceptions may be possible. These exceptions are given on an individual basis and students should not assume an extension will be made. As such students should apply for their visa as soon as they are able.​

What's the difference between registration and enrollment?

Registration: The registration period determines the interest of students in courses. Students can obtain better time
stamps for capacity-limited courses.
Enrollment: During this period there is an automatic enrollment / confirmation of subjects for which enrollment
conditions have been met (capacity, prerequisites, etc.). Only at the moment of enrollment do you acquire the right and
obligation to study the course.
