Summer semester 2020/2021 update
Due to the pandemic, the management of Palacký University has decided that the mode of teaching will predominantly be on-line and made the difficult decision to cancel the physical mobility of Erasmus (KA103) students at several Palacký University Faculties in the summer semester 2020/2021.
Erasmus students accepted for studies at the Palacký University Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Theology, Faculty of Law, and Faculty of Science* are now offered only online mode of education (virtual mobility) from their homes. Students of these faculties are not expected to come to Olomouc. Virtual mobility students may need to adjust their approved study plans(LA) and substitute practical subjects with theoretical ones.
Only students of the Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, and Faculty of Physical Culture, and individual students of the Faculty of Science granted the exception for performing laboratory projects are expected to come to the campus for a combination of virtual and face-to-face teaching (practical part) as these students cannot perform only virtual mobility from home. To meet the requirements of their study plans they must be present in Olomouc.
Students who continue their mobility from the winter semester (have been accepted for winter and summer semester 2020/2021) are allowed to come to Olomouc as well.
Should you wish to defer your study exchange at Palacký University to the academic year 2021/2022, please note that for the new academic year, a new nomination and application must be submitted.
Due to ongoing uncertainty connected with the development of the world´s pandemic we were not able to update you on our institution´s planning for the second semester earlier.
We are very sorry about this decision and regret any inconvenience it may cause.
Please check the list of the FACULTY COORDINATORS containing the contact information and address of their offices.
