    Monitoring Templates of Required and Selective Courses
    The monitoring templates of required and selective courses display lists of the courses designated as required or selective. They may contain quantitative pre-requisites (information about how many selective courses have to be completed or how many credits have to be obtained) or, at the preparatory stage of the record, they may merely provide lists of programme-relevant courses.
    Supplementary Monitoring Templates
    The supplementary monitoring templates specify additional checking rules.

    automatic enrollment
    The module performing the automatic enrollment is started one day before the start of enrollment period (or that of enrollment changes) and terminated one day after its end. Every night, it checks the students' registration records as well as their applications for changing the type of course completion. Provided the student's registration has been successful, it is confirmed and the student is enrolled in the course.
    course enrollment confirmation (performed by students)

    degree programme
    an area of studies. Faculties offer degree programmes, which are divided into fields (of study). Applicants always select a degree programme and one or more of its fields. The degree programmes offered by Masaryk University are as follows:
    Bachelor's degree programme
    a three- to four-year programme; pre-requisite for being allowed to enroll: completed secondary school studies; Bc. (Bachelor's) degree conferred at its completion
    Master's degree programme
    a five- to six-year programme; pre-requisite for being allowed to enroll: completed secondary school studies; Mgr. (Master's) or Ing. degree conferred at its completion
    Master's degree programme (following the Bachelor's one)
    a two- to three-year programme; pre-requisite for being allowed to enroll: completed Bachelor's degree programme; Mgr. (Master's) or Ing. degree conferred at its completion
    doctoral degree programme

    an advanced ('rigorózní') procedure programme
    lifelong learning programme
    a programme in which no degree is conferred at its completion; students may switch into the Bachelor's degree programme after some time
    The information recorded with every degree programme is its code, name, abbreviated name, type, and standard length of studies in it. To browse this information, please use the following path:
    Personal Administration Studies Programmes, fields and specializations
    enrollment period
    a period delineated by the Term Calendar during which successful registration is confirmed and students are enrolled in the courses they have previously registered for
    enrollment problems
    The Course Catalogue specifies the so-called course enrollment pre-requisites. Provided the student meets these, his/her registration is successful and his/her registration record is marked white whereas if he/she does not (meet these), his/her registration is marked red. However, the unsuccessful registration may also result from some other factors than just a failure to meet the enrollment pre-requisites.
    The most frequent causes of registration problems are as follows:
    • The course is full and there are no longer any vacancies in it.
    • The course enrollment pre-requisites have not been met.
    • The course is only offered to students of certain fields.
    field (of study)
    The field is usually subsumed under one or more degree programmes. The student usually enrolls in one or more fields (single-subject x double-subject studies) within one degree programme. Provided he/she enrolls in a combination of fields that belong to the same degree programme (double-subject studies) and are offered by different faculties, his/her studies are referred to as interfaculty. The information recorded with such a programme is its code, name, and abbreviated name.
    repeated course
    If a student fails to complete a course, i.e. gains a grade not completing it, he/she is required to re-enroll in it in the earliest possible term the course is offered. Repeated failure to complete a course represents a reason for terminating the student's studies.
    permission/exception application
    If a student fails to meet the course enrollment pre-requisites, he/she cannot succeed in registering for the course. In such a situation, he/she can apply for being granted the permission to enroll in the course with its teacher.
    pre-requisites
    a term referring to the conditions that have to be met for a student to be able to enroll in a course
    registration wave
    a period during which students of a certain category are allowed to begin to register for courses
    seminar group
    Some courses (e.g. those of physical education, English, special medical courses, etc.) require that students be taught in seminar groups. Although each of them can be found in the timetable, they do not bear any unique course identification codes since they are always subsumed under a certain course. Different seminar groups of the same course may be taught by different teachers (seminar tutors)
    status of studies
    information about the current status or ongoing event related to studies such as enrollment, interruption of studies, etc. Students who interrupt or terminate their studies lose access to a wide range of applications the Information System offers. Related terms: interrupted studies, terminated studies, completed studies

    programme of studies
    a term referring to a student enrolled in a degree programme; It covers the period from the time he/she enrolls in it to the time he/she completes his/her studies in it. Besides the degree programme, the student enrolls in one (or more) of its fields, which can be further divided into specializations. Furthemore, each programme of studies is directly associated with a certain faculty and specified by the year of student's admission, status of his/her studies, form of paying tuition fees, and study group.
    If the student changes his/her degree programme, his/her original programme of studies is terminated and a new one created. In such a situation, the Office for Studies transfer his/her previously gained grades to the latter. Provided the student changes his/her field of study and the change is made within the same degree programme, his/her programme of studies stays the same.
    The student may enroll in more than one programme of studies and he/she is awarded a diploma for each programme completed.
    personal identification number (učo)
    a unique string assigned to every IS user, which is used to identify him/her; Even if a student interrupts and then resumes his/her studies, he/she can still use the same identification number. It is also the student's status of studies in the field that is recorded since he/she may interrupt his/her studies in one while staying enrolled in the other.
    study mode
    the way the student studies (attends classes)
    full-time
    The student attends lectures, seminars, etc.
    distance
    The student maintains a limited contact with his/her teacher. This mode is chiefly based on self-study.
    combined
    This mode entails both the full-time mode and the distance one. Besides doing a lot of self-study, the student in this mode, for instance, consults his/her teacher once a month.
    lifelong
    This mode is typical of lifelong learning programmes.
    term
    Student applications are run under individual terms named after the seasons during which they are under way (e.g. Autumn 2004). Each of these has its Term Calendar delineating the registration period, enrollment period, period of enrollment changes, teaching period, seminar-group-enrollment period, examination period, and extended examination period. The Term Calendar also lists the date on which timetable is to be released.
    term enrollment
    an act allowing the student to enroll in the courses offered in the upcoming term; Students are enrolled in terms by their Offices for Studies after they have met all the term enrollment pre-requisites and applied for the enrollment electronically. The Information System checks if the pre-requisites have really been met and, provided this is the case, approves the enrollment. NB: The term enrollment is entirely independent of course enrollment and must be done separately.
    period of registration changes
    a period delineated by the Term Calendar during which successful registration is confirmed and students are enrolled in the courses they have previously registered for; Unlike the enrollment period, this one is usually under way during the first two weeks of a term. During the period of enrollment changes, the IS applications used for registration and enrollment work the same way as they do during the enrollment period.
