Academic Year Schedule

A schedule is announced by the Rector, so it is common to the whole university. It sets a beginning and an end of an academic year, particular semesters, instruction periods, examination periods and periods of vacation.

General Terms

For newcomers, general terms concerning an academic year at CTU FIT are explained here. An academic year is divided into two semesters. Each semester is divided into an instruction and an examination period.

Organization of an academic year
An academic year lasts 12 calendar months. At CTU, it begins on October 1 and ends on September 30. The academic year is divided into a winter and a summer semester and periods of vacation. The winter semester begins with the beginning of the academic year and the summer semester usually begins at the end of February.
Organization of a semester
Each semester begins with an instruction period, followed by an examination period. During the instruction period students attend lectures, seminars and tutorials and obtain assessments. The instruction period lasts 13 weeks. In the examination period students take exams. It lasts 6 weeks.
Even and odd weeks
Instruction weeks are divided into even and odd ones. Students’ timetables may be different in these weeks. Our faculty determines the parity of a week by the number of a calendar week, so it may happen that the first instruction week is even. The parity of the first week and any exceptions are always mentioned in the timetable.
Days off and substitute classes
In the timetable, there are mentioned days of substitute classes and days off. Due to national holidays and other events, classes are canceled, so they may be substituted any other day of the week. The Dean may also announce Dean’s Day then classes are also canceled. Rector’s Day is similar.
