Why do I have to register for the courses?
At the beginning of your studies, your schedule is made automatically, except for languages. By the second semester, you need to register your courses on your own via InSIS.
New semester schedule creation starts with registrations. The aim of the registrations is to find out students’ interest in offered courses and their timetables. Registration is followed by enrolment.
The start and end of registrations take place according to a semester timetable.
How does the registration take place?
During the registration, you choose both courses and their timetable, i.e. you automatically create your schedule for the next semester. During registration it is possible (as opposed to enrolment) to choose courses beyond their capacity. Therefore, the schedule may, or may not, be accepted during enrolment.
Students who register a course in an upper class always have priority:
- 1st class – compulsory courses – oP, hP, sP, fJV, fJP, oJP, oJV
- 2nd class – compulsory elective courses – fVB, fVM, sV
- 3rd class – optional courses – cVB, cVM
If there are more registered students than the course capacity, even in one round, i.e. in the same class, priority belongs to:
- students with a higher number of credits earned
- in the case of equality, the number of lost credits decides
- and in the case of the equality of both measures, a random selection is made
WARNING: Registering courses without a selected schedule is not valid.
An unregistered course can only be enrolled in the third round, i.e. when all the students who have validly registered are already enrolled
What follows the registrations?
After the end of registrations, the departments adjust the schedules of their courses according to the actual interest of the students.
All students registered for compulsory courses according to their model study plan must be enrolled.
Optional courses with low student interest in registrations could be cancelled.
It is essential for students to register courses even if its enrolment is not guaranteed. The registrations system is protected against excessive demands of students (they may, for instance, fear that senior students will be preferred). This protection is the number of credits after automated enrolments. A student cannot descend below this limit during enrolment and must pass all the credits.
What is the enrolment for?
Enrolment shows that a student who has fulfilled the conditions set by the Study Regulations is able to continue to the next semester.
Enrolment is launched after registrations and takes place in three rounds.
Until the end of the third round of enrolment, students are still registered as active students of the previous semester. After the third round, students are enrolled in the new semester. This does not apply to students enrolled in the first semester of their study programme. They are enrolled separately using a so-called fixed schedule before the first round of automated enrolment.
How does the enrolment take place?
Enrolment takes place in three rounds. Each of them follows different rules.
Each round involves automated and subsequent manual enrolment of courses via InSIS (“Student´s Portal” – “Registration/Enrolment”).
Automated enrolment evaluates the results of registrations based on various criteria. Simply said, the more credits you have already gained, the greater the chance for earlier enrolment.
Manual entry then serves to correct already enrolled courses.
WARNING: Students may also dismiss courses from their enrolments, but the final number of enrolled courses must not fall below the number of credits earned in previous automatic enrolments (the sum of credits for courses enrolled in the first, second and third rounds). Schedule adjustment is usually possible until the first week of semester. After that you cannot change your schedule any more.
Enrolment rounds rules
The first round of automated enrolment – courses from the first class are evaluated (according to the relevant study plan). A list is progressively compiled from registered students according to the rules set (explained above). Students who have not been successful in the first round of enrolment may attempt to enrol in registered courses in the first round of manual enrolment.
The first round of manual enrolment – is available to students after the first round of automated enrolment. Students can make changes and enrol in first class courses, but only those who have registered. Students who have not registered can enrol in courses in which vacancies have remained. Students with a registered schedule may change their timetable regarding courses’ remaining capacity.
Second round of automated enrolment – second class subjects are evaluated according to the relevant study plan.
Second round of manual enrolment – students can make changes and enrol for their registered first and second class subjects.
Third round of automated enrolment – Third class subjects are evaluated according to the relevant study plan.
Third round of manual enrolment – Students can make changes and enrol for items in all classes and can also enrol in courses that have not been registered before.
