Dear colleagues, dear students,
the situation that currently affects the life of most of us, including the way of studying, raises a number of questions you ask. We are sharing with you the most frequently asked questions that can already be answered. We put a great effort in providing you with all available and up to date information. It is obvious that there are still many unanswered and unresolved issues, but the current dynamically evolving situation does not allow us to definitively address these issues, even if we would like to do so ourselves. Please be assured that as soon as we are able to provide answers to other topics, we will inform you immediately.
We believe that we can all manage this difficult situation thanks to mutual support and patience.
With cordial greetings and wishes of peaceful days,
Assoc. Prof. Ing. Jiří Remeš
Vice-Rector for Education
Frequently asked questions about study
Is the education definitely finished?
Teaching as a whole is not terminated, only direct (face to face) teaching where personal contact of students and teachers could occur. This teaching has been replaced by alternative methods used in distance learning, such as e-learning, online lectures, video broadcasts, etc. Students are required to follow the instructions of teachers who continue to teach. The semester continues according to the original schedule.
How long will the regular teaching be cancelled?
How long this state of emergency lasts is not clear. The announced restrictions apply until further notice and may change further as the situation develops. All changes will be announced to the students in time. Therefore, students need to follow relevant information sources. At this point in view of the development of the spread of the disease, we can confirm that contactless education will take place throughout the summer semester.
Is the library open?
The library building as well as the faculty buildings are closed. This also suspends the loan services and the collection of book reservations. All student loans and reservations will be extended for the duration of the regular teaching cancellation. Also, no penalties will be charged at this time.
May I come to a teacher for consultation?
Individual consultations are not abolished in general, but should be conducted in another form, e.g. through electronic forms of communication.
Will the exam period be organized - will the exams take place?
We want the semester to be properly completed and then to have an exam period in accordance with the academic year schedule. Teachers are therefore currently preparing to carry out exams with all available adequate methods. It is very likely that mass contact forms of examinations (written tests in classrooms, etc.) will not be possible during the examination period.
What about final state examinations?
The deadlines set in the academic year schedule are still valid. However, some partial changes have already been approved: the Rector's decision now allows students to bring printed and tied final thesis to the defence itself, some faculties have extended the deadline for uploading the electronic form of the final thesis into the University Information System.
Currently, the most suitable approach to the organization and realization of the final state examinations is being sought, including eventual postponement of the dates of their holding. Students will be informed in advance of any changes.
Will the application deadline be extended?
Since applications for study at CZU are submitted only electronically, there is no reason to extend the deadlines in regards with the emergency regime and the general quarantine. However, the individual faculties determine the conditions themselves and may extend the deadlines according to their needs. Information will always be published in a timely manner.
Will entrance (admission) examinations be held?
The dates of the entrance (admission) examinations have not changed yet. Applicants will be informed in a timely manner if any change of dates shall occur.
