You can find more detailed information (in Czech) at www.international.zcu.cz/cs/Student/Study_visit/Erasmuss/quide.html
Will I have to do any courses again?
It's up to you. If you choose courses that roughly match your FEE study plan for a given semester, we will recognize those courses and credits, and you do not have to extend your studies. The choice of subjects must be consulted before leaving with the Vice-Dean for Educational Activities, doc. Ing. Roman Pechánek, Ph.D. However, if the selected courses are different from your study plan, only credits can be recognized, and you must pass the exams upon your return.
Will I have enough money?
A lot depends on the chosen destination and the way of living, eating, spending free time, etc. Experience shows that a large part of the costs will usually be covered by the allocated funds (however, you should count on one of your pocket money)..
Can I extend my stay?
Yes, you can, you can spend up to two semesters studying abroad in one study cycle.
More detailed information on extending your stay, but also all other important information, can be found (in Czech) at www.international.zcu.cz/cs/Student/Study_visit/Erasmuss/quide.html
Why go out at all?
You will gain experience in life that no one will ever take from you. You will improve your language, get to know new places, people, and culture, learn to make decisions, act on your own in a foreign environment, and make new friends and contacts. The foreign experience will also tell your future employer that you are a person who is not afraid to try new things and can deal with a difficult situation on your own.
Can I take a boyfriend / girlfriend with me?
It is up to you. And literally, in everything 😊
Will I understand?
Check the language level requirements at the selected university. In most cases, they are not larger than B2, sometimes even B1. Some universities require a certificate but don't worry; if you have completed the AEL6 course, it is enough to confirm level B2. If you still have doubts, come, and we will advise you.
