General Information
The essential dates of the academic calendar (such as semester starting and ending dates) are common for the whole university.

An academic year starts on 1 September and ends on 31 July of the following calendar year.

It is divided into two semesters, traditionally called Winter Semester (WS, in Czech: zimní semestr/ZS; in some texts also referred to as Fall/Autumn/First semester) and Summer Semester (SS, in Czech: letní semestr/LS; in some texts also referred to as Spring/Second semester).

Each semester consists of 13 weeks when classes are held followed by a 6-week exam period.
WS classes usually start in mid-September and end before Christmas.
SS classes usually start in mid-February and end in mid-May.

July and August are considered as summer holiday period.

Classes and exams are usually held from Monday to Friday; some may take place on Saturdays (intensive courses, executive education, courses for part-time students/students in combined form of study).

University Closing Days

The university is closed on Sundays and on Czech public holidays.

No Classes Days

There are also other occasions when classes and office hours are cancelled, although the university premises are open: the traditional Rector’s Sports Day – held usually in April – and Dean’s Day(s) – dates may vary every academic year and depend on the decision of the dean of the respective faculty.
