For Students

Registering subjects for Summer semester 2018/2019 - schedule changes
It is possible to make minor changes to schedule at the Study department by March 20, 2019.

Graduation ceremonies
We ask graduates who successfully completed their studies by final state examination in January and February to apply for a graduation ceremony at their study referent. These will take place from June 24-28. The exact schedule will be posted on the faculty web site in the second half of June. You can pick up the confirmation of completing studies at the Study Department. Here you can also collect your diplomas at the end of March if you do not want to take part in the graduation ceremony.

Graduation ceremonies of Doctoral students
Graduation ceremonies of graduates of Doctoral programs will take place during May - June. All concerned graduates will be contacted by their study referent via email.

Scholarship applications
You must submit applications for regular scholarships until the end of the academic year, i.e. August 2019, not until December 2019. This is due to the fact that STAG works with academic years, not calendar ones; some students finish their studies during the application process; the amounts of scholarships change etc. For September 2019, submit new requests.

Academic Senate

The upcoming meeting of Academic Senate of the Faculty will take place on Wednesady April 10 at 1 pm in the large meeting room at Dean´s Office (6.014). The agenda will cover mainly division of finances and budget of the Faculty.

Faculty Operation

Road closure
We would like to inform all employees that from March 27-28, the communication between Faculty of Science and Faculty of Law will be closed. The reason is the moving optical tables to building of the Faculty of Science, within the OPVV project - Modernization of Physics Laboratories on the 4th floor of PrF UP building - Envelopa. Map of the location - here.

On the access road to the parking lot under the administration of the Faculty of Law and the entrance to the underground garages of the Faculty of Science, there will be a lifting technique and a truck with optical tables, etc. Moving cannot be completed during normal operation, therefore the access to the underground garages and the parking lot will not be allowed. If everything is accomplished during March 27, we expect the communication to begin immediately after the completion of the works. Otherwise, the communication will be closed on March 28 as well. We apologize for any complications.


Dear employees,

We recommend that you pay attention to the hint given for each item of the form (the "question mark" icon).
