Student life

The academic year commences in the beginning of October and is divided into Winter and Summer semesters. Each semester consists of 13 weeks of instruction (lecture period), and is followed by a 5-week examination period, where the 5th week is reserved for potential retake examinations if necessary.

All study requirements for each semester are customarily completed during the relevant examination period. Students have one regular examination date and one regular retake examination to attempt to receive a credit/pass an examination during the examination period for the relevant semester. At the end of every examination period, students must submit their study results to the Student Services office in order to be able to continue with their studies in the following semester.

Students who fail to complete their study requirements during the regular examination dates and the regular retake examinations may apply for extraordinary retakes according to the rules and conditions stipulated by the Study and Examination Code of Metropolitan University Prague.
