Study measures to support Ukrainian students at the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague
The following measures should be taken to mitigate the effects of the military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine on students of Ukrainian citizenship and based on the recommendation of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports.
(1) Students with Ukrainian citizenship (hereinafter referred to as "Ukrainian students") studying in the academic year 2021/2022 in the first year of study who did not meet the condition for progression to the summer semester according to Article 10 Paragraph 8 of the Study and Examination Regulations for Bachelor's and Master's degree programs at CZU Prague (hereinafter "SER"), can continue their studies and will be offered an Individual Study Plan (ISP). If a decision to terminate their studies has already been sent to them, they can appeal against this decision by the end of March 2022 and the appeal must be met.
(2) In accordance with Article 13 of SER, it will be possible for Ukrainian students to be allowed ISP during the summer semester of the academic year 2021/2022, if they so request. The main goal is to enable the distribution of the prescribed study plan over a longer period of time.
(3) Ukrainian students, especially those who have had to return to Ukraine, will have their studies suspended at their request. This period of study suspension will be recorded separately, but no special study suspension code will be specified for it. In the event that the total period of study suspension would exceed the maximum period specified in Article 12, Paragraph 2 of SER, it is recommended that the Dean/Director grant an exemption.
(4) It will be possible to extend the deadlines for the submission of final theses to Ukrainian students on the basis of their written application submitted to the study administration office of the faculty/institute where they are enrolled in the study.
(5) Ukrainian students whose study will be demonstrably prolonged due to military aggression against Ukraine and whose set ISP will lead to the assessment of a fee for longer studies, will be waived this fee in the appeal proceedings against the assessment of the fee in accordance with § 58 Paragraph 7 of the Higher Education Act and Article 25 (7) of the CZU Statute.
