CREDIT SYSTEM

82646

Credits are notional points students receive for meeting their study obligations, sometimes for meeting the requirements of a course or optional subject, at other times for passing an examination.

The number of credits, which students can follow in the SIS, is set for each year of study separately. In each year, students are required to achieve a ‘normal’ number of credits (see Freshmen’s Guide).

At most 15% of credits for facultative (optional) subjects can be counted in, i.e. at most 9 credits per academic year. Credits over this number are not taken into account when checking the fulfilment of course requirements.

At the end of the last year, students must reach, by adding all credits for mandatory and optional subjects, at least 360 credits in the course of General Medicine, 300 in the Dentistry course, 180 in bachelor courses, and 120 credits in subsequent master’s courses.

Individual Study Plan (ISP) due to Failure to Meet Study Requirements

In order to qualify for an ISP, students must meet the following conditions:

» They must acquire so-called minimal number of credits, but this minimum is not permissible twice in a row;

» They must fail to meet at most two study requirements in a given year of study;

» ISP due to failure to meet study obligations can be applied for at most twice during the entire course of study. For this reason, ISP can be granted at the earliest after two segments of study subsequent to passing a segment of studied according to individual study plan.

Applying for an ISP:

1. The application is found here.

2. After completing the headings, applicant may write in the justification section something along the lines of ‘I am applying for an ISP because I need to repeat the Anatomy 2 (B02668) and Medical Informatics (B00364) courses, which I failed to complete this year.’ Students use their own words to briefly present their case.

3. In the application, students may list subjects from the subsequent year of study they wish to register for and where registration is not precluded by failure to meet the prerequisites, i.e. study obligations that have to be met in order to proceed to a different study obligation.

All applications for an ISP are decided upon by a vice dean appointed by the dean of the faculty.

Attention! Students who fail to pass the subject they retake in the ISP must terminate their studies.

By the end of the ISP, students much achieve a normal number of credits and pass all courses listed in the ISP. This is part of the conditions under which an ISP is granted. Failure to meet conditions set by the ISP results in a termination of study at the faculty.

ISP for other reasons can be applied for only if there is no reason to terminate your study.

Students can apply for an ISP for instance due to their state of health:

» In case a student faces, in the course of the academic year, a serious health concern (long-term hospitalisation, high-risk pregnancy, etc.).

All ISP applications are decided upon by a vice dean who is appointed by the dean. The vice dean evaluates the application and decides whether there are reasons to terminate the applicant’s study, i.e. whether the applicant meets conditions for granting an ISP. If the ISP is granted and applicant fails to meet the conditions set in the ISP, his or her study will be terminated.
