Introductory word

Dear graduates,
we are very sorry that due to the epidemiological situation in the Czech Republic and government regulations, we also had to cancel the planned November graduations. We have therefore considered the possibility of postponing graduations once again, ideally for February 2021. Unfortunately, the current development of the epidemic does not indicate that this alternative will be realistic either. Therefore, we consider July 2021 to be the most probable date of your graduation.

We ask for our cooperation in this regard. Please let us know if you would be interested in holding graduations at such a late date, ie. for most of you more than a year after passing the state final exams. Send the information by e-mail to the head of the study department, Jiří Mazal ( by November 30, 2020.
