The students may be in principle (after becoming a labour permit) employed outside the Faculty but we strongly recommend the concentration on their study. The Faculty has at present very limited funds to offer scholarships.
Health services and requirements
Each student must undergo and pay for an introductory health examination at the Students Health Centre.
The students permanent resident in CR and the students who are included into the frame of international agreement (a stipend from the Ministry of Education CR) are provided with a health insurance and must pay no insurance fees.
The other students are supposed to provide themselves with health insurance at their own expenses (present price level for foreign students at Czech health insurance company is approx. 44 USD a month). The health insurance covers cases of accident and sickness; other health services are available on a fee-for-service-basis. The insurance is not obligatory for these students but then they have to pay cash by medical help.
A medical history form and proof of adequate immunization against diphtheria, measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus and poliomyelitis must be submitted at the compulsory introductory health examination.
Housing, transportation and meals
University housing is available in well appointed traditional residence halls. At present, the price for foreign students is approximately 255 USD a month. For the students permanent resident in CR, the students who are included into the frame of international agreement (and provided with a stipend from the Ministry of Education or eventually from our Faculty) the price is essentially lower.
Enrolled students have the right to buy a Transportation Card valid for all means of city transportation at a discounted rate (at present Kc 180,- i.e. about 6 USD). Discounted meals are available in any of Students Menzas throughout the town (price from 1 to 2 USD for a meal). Due to the present ratio of the Czech crown to western currencies, food is relatively inexpensive for foreigners from Western countries.
The students from abroad who are not permanent resident in Czech Republic have to pay a tuition fee of 6,000 USD/year for teaching in English language. Study in Czech language is free. The fee should be paid before each year registration and covers all instruction (lectures, seminars, laboratories training and tutorial) and necessary experimental costs and entitles student to use faculty facilities, including the Central Faculty Library and department libraries, when all the necessary textbook can be borrowed.
Introductory registration fee is 30 USD.
The foreign students who are included into the frame of an international agreement with the Ministry of Education of Czech Republic, have eventually a stipend from our Faculty (see below) or have a permanent stay in Czech Republic pay no tuition fees. Please, contact relevant Ministry or other Office in your country to obtain more information about international agreements and possibilities to study in frame of these.
The Faculty has very limited funds to offer scholar-, acquaintance- and/or fellowships and supports students in this way exceptionally and in special cases (preferably the well-qualified and talented students from Central and Eastern Europe). Requests should be sent to our Study and student affairs department. Otherwise, contact, please, a relevant Ministry in your country, relevant foundations and/or Czech Ministry of Education to obtain information about founding possibilities.
