How to proceed when you have decided to study at Art Education Dept.:

After you have arrived in Prague, do not forget to visit an introductory meeting at the Art Education Dept. You will learn the exact date at the Faculty introductory meeting. You will receive a detailed information about your subject enrollments.

3)Register in to the Projects and Subjects

After the meeting at Art Education Dept., meet with the leader (teacher) of the Project and individual teachers of the Subjects that you plan to attend. The Subjects are being provided through other regular subjects taught at the Dept. Consequently, you will be in close contact with Czech students. You will receive instruction and a feedback in English. Please prepare a portfolio of your artworks and present it to the teachers during the first meeting in Prague, it can help the teachers identify which course is most suitable for you.

Consultation hours of our teachers

Exceptionally, consultation hours are being changed during the semester. Before you visit individual teachers, always check the link.

4)Get records in your “blue book” (sc. index) in the end of the semester and check your records in the SIS (electronic system of evidence)

Fill the names and codes of Project and Subjects, credits and names of lecturers into the “blue book”. In the end of the semester students must get signatures from each lecturer as a proof of their successful finishing of each Subject or Project. After getting all signatures, visit the secretary of the Art Education Dept. and she will register your results. Dept. for International Relations (Mgr.
