What does a typical academic year in Czech Republic look like?
The typical Czech academic year starts in the last week of September or the first of October and each semester takes 13 weeks of study. The winter semester ends in December or January and is followed by a 7-week exam period, which ends in mid-February. The same length applies to the spring semester, which lasts until the third week of May, followed by another exam period of 7 weeks. If you are perceptive enough, you know what that means: No midterms. The finals at the end of each semester can be done in written, oral, or combined format. All the universities utilize the ECTS credit system with 30 ECTS credits for semester. Altogether you’ll need 180 ECTS to complete a Bachelor’s programme and 120 ECTS for a Master’s programme.
