Step 1 – Nomination (contact your Erasmus coordinator)
If you wish to come to study at Charles University as an Erasmus student, your home university must officially nominate you. In the first instance, therefore, you must contact the ERASMUS coordinator at your home university.
Step 2 – Online Registration
Please note that this is an obligatory process – so if you have filled in the standard forms (on paper) without registering online, we must still ask that you register online.
Detailed information about online registration is sent by European Office after your nomination. You can also consult university webpage for incoming students.
Step 3 – Confirmation of Essential Forms: Application Form and Learning Agreement
The printed-out forms should be checked and confirmed/signed by the relevant coordinators of your home university.
Erasmus students are integrated to groups with regular students. Due to this fact, availability of courses is not guaranteed as their capacity may be strictly limited.
* General Medicine: 5th year courses are taught in blocks during the whole academic year.
* Dentistry: in the academic year 2023/2024, the 5th year courses will not be taught.
Note that 6th year courses of General Medicine are reserved only for traineeships.
It is possible to combine courses from different years, both obligatory and optional. Although, we do not recommend an exceeding combination, since possible schedule overlaps are students’ responsibility to manage.
Erasmus+ Trainees are integrated to 6th year courses and they must respect their schedule.
Only Internal Medicine, Surgery and Public and Occupational Medicine departments currently accept Trainees.
Remember that forms must be delivered in time. Your application cannot be accepted after the closing date for any reason whatsoever! – please check the final deadlines above.
Step 4 – Sending Documents
Send the forms to Erasmus Faculty coordinator: Jitka Škrabalová, email@example.com
Please bear in mind that until the printed, signed and stamped forms are sent, you have not yet actually started the application process for your study period.
We will confirm the AF (Application Form) and LA (Learning Agreement) and European Office will send the documents back to you together with a Letter of Admission and Accommodation Voucher.
If you decide not to use the University accommodation, we need you to inform us as soon as you have fixed your private accommodation.
Czech grading system
Charles University uses the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) which is a workload-based system for measuring and comparing study results. The student is awarded a certain number of ECTS credits for each course which reflects the workload necessary to successfully complete a course. Credits are awarded only when the student has fulfilled the course requirements, for example
regular attendance. The credits are allocated by the individual departments in accordance with the standard workload determined by the respective study and examination regulations whereby one credit equals 30 hours of study.
Czech Grade ECTS Grade
1 – Excellent (excellent performance) A/B
2 – Very Good (above the average standard but with some errors) C/D
3 – Good (generally sound work with a number of notable errors) E
4 – Fail (unsatisfactory performance) FX/F
Pass (student achievements in some subjects are graded only as “pass”, where student has obtained a satisfactory level) – Pass
