In case you are placed in quarantine inform your teachers vie email about the reason for your absence in classes and to agree on online academic work to maintain your study plan.

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.

WASTE MANAGEMENT MUNICIPAL FEE

Foreigners who stay in Olomouc for more than 90 days are obliged to pay the Waste management municipal fee 

https://www.olomouc.eu/urad-online/oznameni-spolecneho-zastupce

Please download:

and read the information via links below for more details.

NEW! Starting 2021, students under 26 years of age staying in UP dorms are not required to pay the fee.

Full text of the document  is available at https://www.olomouc.eu/administrace/repository/gallery/articles/10_/10827/oe-vyhlaska-12-2020.cs.pdf

In 2021, the fee is 804 CZK.

  • Students who will come to pay the fee in person at the Olomouc office should respect the office hours on Monday and Wednesday (the office is closed for the public on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday). 
  • Concerning the online payments, to count the portion to pay, please count the number of months you have spent in Olomouc. The month you are leaving is not counted. You should divide the yearly fee of 804 into 12 months of the calendar year, and the result multiply by the number of months spent in Olomouc (include the first months of your stay and exclude the last month if leaving before its end).

1. e.g. Student XY in Olomouc - February 2021 to May 25, 2021.

804:12 = 67 CZK
67 x 3 (February - April) = 201 CZK

Note: May is not included because of the student departure before the end of the month.

2. e.g.  Student YX in Olomouc from September 2020 to June 1, 2021

804:12 = 67 CZK
67 x 9 (September – May) = 612 CZK
