General registration procedures

General registration procedures are available in the article No.:17 of The Study and Examination Code for Students of the Czech Technical University in Prague  on http://www.cvut.cz/en/ects-ds/brief/sr

Article 17
Course of study


1. An applicant becomes a student on the day of enrollment for study in a study program. Registration is held at the faculty where the corresponding study program is implemented. Should the study program be implemented at more faculties, the student shall enroll for the entire period of his/her study program only at the faculty at which he/she passed the admission procedure. Registration is performed on the dates set by the dean.

2. Matriculation is the enrollment of students into the student register. Part of matriculation is the matriculation oath that is signed by the student. The wording of the matriculation oath is given in Appendix No. 5 to the Statutes of the CTU. The matriculation ceremony for students is organized by the faculty within 30 days after the beginning of an academic year.

3. Within the curriculum of the registered study program and branch of study and in accordance with this Code, students are entitled to participate in practical courses, seminars, courses, practice, laboratory work, excursions, consultations and other forms of instruction, earn credits and classified credits, and take examinations.

4. Curricula lay down which courses are compulsory, compulsory elective and optional for the
respective study program and branch of study.

5. If a student fails to attend registration for the respective semester, academic year or block of study on the set date, and does not submit a written excuse stating the reason within five days from that date, this act is considered as non-fulfillment of the requirements of the study program, and the student's study is terminated in accordance with § 56 par. 1 letter b) of the Act and Art. 20 par. 5 letter b). The decision-making procedure in this matter is regulated by § 68 of the Act. If the student submits a written excuse within five days from the date of registration and the excuse is recognized by the dean, the student is assigned a substitute date for registration.

6. Study in a study program may be interrupted, even repeatedly. Interruption of study is allowed by the dean on the basis of a written request. The dean can initiate an interruption of ones study, if thee is a threat with an imminent damage to the student and did not originate due to present study obligations. Study will not be interrupted if a student, within 10 days after receiving a written notice, submits a rebuttal. The dean can also initiate an interruption of ones study, if tuition and fees were not paid according to § 58 par 3or4 letter Act. The dean can also initiate an interruption of students study by giving a make-up date for state final exams according to § 22 par 3 or a date for repetition of state final exams according to Art 22 par 3 only if Bachelor project or Masters thesis was evaluated by a different mark than F. The minimum period of interruption is one semester. During the period of interruption of study the applicant loses the status of a student. During the examination session, study may be interrupted only for extreme reasons. Study interruption also cannot be permitted in the case, when the students study would have to be terminated per § 56 par. 1 letter b) of the Act and the Art. 20 par. 5 letter b) upon study recommending. The dean's decision on the interruption of study is regulated by § 68 of the Act. The dean's decision is entered in the student's record and documentation kept.

7. Except for serious, namely health, reasons, study may be interrupted only after successful
completion of the first academic year.

8. Once the period for which the study has been interrupted expires, the person whose study was interrupted is entitled to register for a study program again. If he/she fails to register on the given date and does not submit a written excuse within five days, this act is considered as non-fulfillment of duties and the student's study is terminated in accordance with § 56 par. 1 letter b) and Art. 20 par. 5 letter b). The decision-making procedure in this matter is regulated by § 68 of the Act. Missing the deadline in justified cases may be pardoned by the dean. If the reasons for interruption of study cease to exist, the dean may, upon written application submitted by the person whose study was interrupted, terminate the interruption of study even before the expiry of the granted period of interruption of study. This English language translation is for informative purposes only. In the event of a dispute, the Czech language version is considered definitive.

9. Based on a written application submitted by the student, the dean may allow the completion of one or more academic years according to an individual study plan, whose course and conditions are set by the dean as well. Other provisions of this Code, including the standard period of study and the maximum period of study are not affected by this in any way. Non-fulfillment of the obligations stipulated in the individual study plan may be considered a reason for study termination terminated in accordance with § 56 par. 1 letter b) and Art. 20 par. 5 letter b). The decision-making procedure in this matter is regulated by § 68 of the Act.

10. The student who has been admitted for study in a study program implemented by a faculty and who has already studied in the same study program implemented by this faculty in the past, or who has studied in a study program implemented by another faculty of the CTU or in a study program implemented by another university in the Czech Republic or abroad, may, upon written application, be granted completion (recognition) of a stage of study (semester, academic year or block) by the dean, if no more than five years have passed since its completion.

11. The student who is sent by the CTU to study at a university abroad is granted recognition of the courses and credit units earned at the school abroad if they correspond to the contents of the courses of his/her study program. Recognition is within the dean's authority.
