Recognition of courses between the old and newly accredited bachelor study program

At the beginning of 2021, FIT received a new accreditation for the bachelor study program in Informatics, which will be taught from the 2021/2022 academic year. All applicants admitted to study this year are accepted into the new program. However, if you have already studied at FIT in the past, it is possible to have previously completed courses recognized in the new program, or to complete your studies in the old program.

General rules for the recognition of courses

After enrolment in the study, it is necessary to submit a request to recognize courses. Items that meet the following conditions may be recognized: 

  • Eligible courses from previous study or Lifelong Learning.

  • The date of completion of the course is not longer than 5 years from the date of submitting the request. 

Credits recognized in this way are not considered credits obtained in the given semester or academic year, i.e. they are not included in the minimum number of obtained credits necessary for continuing the study. They are included only in the total sum of obtained credits. 

Details can be found in Directive No. 25/2017 for the Administration of the Bachelor and Master Study Program.

Information on the recognition of courses between the original and the newly accredited program

  • In the 2021/2022 academic year, only the courses of the 1st year will be taught in the new program, in the following year the courses of the 2nd year, etc.
  • With the exceptions listed below, the content of all compulsory courses of the 1st year is the same in the old and new program and will be mutually recognized.
  • It will still be possible to register for the courses of the old program.
  • Courses are mutually recognized between the programs according to the rules:
    • Courses with the same abbreviation (but different “suffix”) are equivalent and mutually recognizable, e.g. courses BIE-PA1 and BIE-PA1.21.
    • Other courses will be recognized according to the recognition table – sometimes in both directions, sometimes in one direction, two courses for one, but also one course for two.

Continuation scenarios for newly admitted students after a previous incomplete study

1.

You want to finish your studies in the old program in the next academic year.

You did not complete your bachelor studies and re-entered the newly accredited program. As soon as possible (during the 1st year of new studies), you want to pass the State Final Examination in your original (old) program and finish your studies. 

Follow the instructions: 
2.

You want to continue the old program.

You have not completed your bachelor studies and re-entered the newly accredited program. You want to continue with your original (old) program, but you do not plan to take the State Final Examination in the year of entry. 

You have two options:
  1. Use the same procedure as for variant “1. You want to finish your studies in the old program in the next academic year”.

  2. Study in the new program (you can also register for the courses of the old program), and after the successful completion of the 1st year, apply for transfer to the old program and apply for recognition of completed courses according to the recognition table

For this variant, it is necessary to pay attention to the end of the accreditation of the old program, which ends on 31 Dec. 2024. The last opportunity to pass the State Final Examination will be in June 2024. In case of failure, you will have to switch to a new program and finish the missing courses.

3.

You want to continue with the new program.

You did not complete your bachelor studies and re-entered the newly accredited program. You want to continue with this new program.

Follow the instructions:
  • No problem, study a new program.

  • You can apply for recognition of courses from your original (old) program. Courses are recognized according to the recognition table.

  • However, take into account that in the 2021/2022 academic year, new courses (specific to the new program) will be taught only in the 1st year, new courses in the 2nd year only in the 2022/2023 academic year and courses in the 3rd year a year later.
