Standard duration of studies:

a) Standard length of study

The duration of studies is determined by the accreditation of each programme. At this point, we offer three-year bachelor’s programmes, and two- and three-year post-bachelor programmes.

b) Standard period of study

This is the period for which you may study free of charge. With bachelor’s programmes, it is possible to study free of charge for up to 4 years (1,460 days); with post-bachelor programmes, up to 3 years (1,095 days).

For students who did not complete the previous studies successfully, the number of days studied will be added to their FAMU studies under the conditions defined by Act No. 111/1998 on tertiary education.

Section 58 Fees associated with studies

(3) If a student studies a bachelor’s or master’s programme for longer than the standard period of studies plus one year*, the public tertiary school shall charge the student a tuition fee, which shall amount to at least 1.5 times the basis for each additional commenced six months of studies; the duration of studies shall also include the periods of all previous studies under bachelor’s and master’s programmes completed in a manner other than standard under Section 45(3) or Section 46(3) except for previous studies, after whose completion the student duly completed a programme of the same type.

The periods in which the student studied under such programmes or under such programmes and concurrently under the current programme shall be included only once in the duration of studies.

At first, however, the recognised period of parenthood will be deducted from the total duration of studies calculated under this paragraph.

*Three-year bachelor’s programmes: four years; two-year post-bachelor programmes: three years.

Maximum length of study

  • Bachelor’s programmes – 6 years
  • Continuing Master’s programmes – 4 years

This is the maximum permitted length of studies within which you can complete your studies successfully.

Students who commenced studies in the academic year 2019/2020 and in subsequent years will find the information on the maximum duration of studies in the KOS. The rules for the maximum duration of studies are defined by the Attendance and Examination Regulations in effect from 1 October 2019

Under Act No. 188/2020 on special rules for education and decision-making in universities in 2020 and on assessing the duration of studies for the purposes of other acts:

The period of studies under a programme within the period from 1 March 2020 to 31 August 2020 (the “period of disrupted studies”) is not included in:

a) duration of studies under Section 58(3) of the University Act for the purposes of determining the tuition fee;

b) maximum duration of studies for the purposes of observing academic duties, if such a period is defined by an internal policy of the university;

c) maximum duration of studies for the purposes of approving grants where such a period is defined by an internal policy of the university.

The period during which a grant is allocated under Section 91(3) of the University Act shall be extended by the period of disrupted studies, but not longer than until the due completion of studies.

If a person’s studies interrupted during the period of disrupted studies are interrupted under Section 54 of the University Act, such period is not included in the total duration of the interruption, if the person so applies.

 

Subjects and subject groups are organised by category in the study plan. Based on its category, it is possible to determine whether an academic subject is an elective, whether repeat examinations are possible, whether it can be registered repeatedly and what the consequences of failing the subject are. At AMU, subjects fall into these categories:

 

1. A subject in the category “required main subjects” (PH):

a) must be registered in the semester prescribed by the study plan;

b) must be completed in the semester prescribed by the study plan;

c) does not have a repeat examination date;

d) if the student fails the subject, then his/her programme of study shall be terminated pursuant to Section 56 (1b) of the Act.

2. A subject in the category “required subjects that cannot be repeated” (PB):

a) must be registered in the semester prescribed by the study plan;

b) must be completed in the semester prescribed by the study plan;

c) has repeat examination dates;

d) if the student fails the subject (after exhausting all repeat examination dates), then his/her programme of study shall be terminated pursuant to Section 56 (1b) of the Act;

3. A subject in the category “required subjects that can be repeated” (PO):

a) must be registered in the semester prescribed by the study plan;

b) has repeat examination dates;

c) if the student fails the subject, it is possible to request permission to register for the subject again in a future semester; the student must submit a request for permission to register for the subject again at the Registrar's Office and the Dean will decide on the matter; such permission to repeat a subject may not necessarily be granted; if a subject for which permission to repeat has been granted to a student will no longer be offered, the guarantor of the academic programme shall stipulate which subject it will be replaced by;

d) if the student fails the subject and permission to register for it again is not granted, then his/her programme of study shall be terminated pursuant to Section 56 (1b) of the Act.

 

4. A subject in the category “required elective subjects” (PV):

a) is part of a set of offered subjects, a subset of which the student is required to complete; the precise terms and conditions are stipulated by the study plan;

b) has repeat examination dates;

c) if the student fails the subject, it is possible to repeat the subject in a future semester;

d) can be completed repeatedly, provided this is permitted for the subject in question as an elective subject (VV);

e) if the student fails the subject, then his/her programme of study shall not be terminated pursuant to Section 56 (1b) of the Act.

5. A subject in the category “elective subjects” (VV):

a) can be selected entirely at the student’s discretion; the study plan prescribes only a minimum number of credits which must be earned for elective subjects during the course of the programme;

b) has repeat examination dates;

c) if a student fails the subject, it is possible to register for the subject again in a future semester;

d) can be completed repeatedly, provided this is permitted for the subject in question;

e) if the student fails the subject, then his/her programme of study shall not be terminated pursuant to Section 56 (1b) of the Act.

 

Registration for subjects

The registration for subjects in the PH, PO and PB groups takes place automatically before the start of each semester. The PV and VV subject registrations take place on the dates defined by the schedule of AMU’s academic year. During the said periods, students may register for subjects up to the capacity of each subject. If you want to register for a subject but the capacity is depleted, please contact the secretariat of the Department that teaches the subject.
