  • 11.How can I find out which other courses I should complete?
    There is an application allowing students to monitor the progress of their studies by means of the so-called monitoring templates. To go to the application, please use the following path:

    The Information system Student During studies Check my studies

    If you click on 'Show my list of required and selective courses', you will be provided with a list of the courses listed in the templates of required and selective courses assigned to your programme of studies. These courses acquire the attributes described in the Study and Examination Regulations and are handled accordingly (priority in their registration, their automatic recognition in concurrent programmes of studies, their recognition after their completion in previous programmes of studies, and no possibility of these becoming subject to re-sit exemption).

    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.
    Study-Specific Templates
    The study-specific templates are those that are assigned to groups of students by the Office for Studies and which the Office for Studies consider relevant for the groups. It is these that are used for checking your studies. Provided you detect any wrong or inaccurate information in your template, please contact your Office for Studies.

  • 16.An overview of terms related to the study
    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. The automatic application is terminated one day after the end of the period registration / registration changes.
    study mode
    the way the student studies (attends classes)
    The student attends lectures, seminars, etc.
    The student maintains a limited contact with his/her teacher. This mode is chiefly based on self-study.
    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.
    This mode is typical of lifelong learning programmes.
    Student applications are run under individual terms named after the seasons during which they are under way (e.g. Autumn 2024). 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.
    repeated course
    If the student does not complete the course (if he / she does not obtain a successful grade), he / she must obtain it re-enroll in the next semester, when the course is listed. Repeatedly unsuccessful completion of the course is a reason to terminate the study. Unsuccessfully repeated subjects are controlled by the study department.
    a term referring to the conditions that have to be met for a student to be able to enroll in a course.
    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.
    registration wave
    a period during which students of a certain category are allowed to begin to register for courses
    state of study
    A recorded event that may occur in the studio, eg enrollment in the study, interruption of studies, etc. If the study has an active state on a certain date, we say it is active on that date. Many operations in the IS can be performed only by a person who now has an active study. Related terms are inactive study (the student has interrupted his studies, from the point of view of the Czech Republic he is not a student), completed studies and successfully completed studies.

    The state of study of the field is also registered. It is possible, for example, one of the two studied interrupt the disciplines and continue in the second.

    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.
    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
    a three-year programme; pre-requisite for being allowed to enroll: completed Master's degree programme; Ph.D. (doctoral) degree conferred at its completion
    advanced ('rigorózní') 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:

    Informační systém Studium Programy, obory, směry
    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
    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.
    completion of course
    The course is offered with one or more types of completion (eg exam, colloquium). Depending on the completion of the course, the student will be awarded the appropriate grade. The recommended completion is the one that students implicitly register. Other possible – it may be possible to enroll in the course with varying difficulty (completion). What course endings exist and their ratings can be found at

    The Information system Courses Types of completion and evaluation
    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
    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.
    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.
