by FBME as a link to an internet page Information about study (the so called White Book)
on the address www. fbmi.cvut.cz/student/bila-kniha only on the basis of the data saved in IS
KOS of the CTU. It shows the teachers teaching all the subjects in the given academic year
as well as the tutors responsible for the subject teaching, guarantors of the study branches and
the supervising department. The listed teachers must fulfil conditions stipulated in the Order
of the dean No. 1/2013 on the labour law relations of teachers at CTU FBME, their further
obligations and qualification for lecturing in all study programs, branches and forms of study
in the Czech language at FBME CTU.

Art.3 Preliminary enrolment for subjects
1. In order to create the timetable efficiently the preliminary enrolment for subjects in all
branches of study is performed through KOS and is regularly organised during the
teaching part of the semester.
2. Each FBME student is obliged to participate in the preliminary enrolment according to
the regulation of the Vice-dean for Education. Thereby he/she expresses interest in
enrolling for the subject in the subsequent semester. Student who fails to enrol for the
subject during the preliminary enrolment will not be registered into the subject in case
of insufficient capacity. In case the demand prevails, the head of the department will
decide upon inclusion into the subject.
3. Before these enrolments, each department is obliged to determine through KOS which
subjects it will be open and what the capacity will be. When the preliminary enrolment
is over, each department must determine through KOS the final capacity. Students
exceeding the capacity or in case of unfilled subject the students can enrol for a
different subject (this concerns optional-compulsory or optional subjects)
Art. 4 Study plans, course of the study, credits and exams
1. Tuition takes place according to the study plans for the given academic year. Lectures are
generally optional but the head of the supervising department may declare the lectures as
compulsory (see Art. 5 (3)). All forms of seminars are compulsory. Specific conditions and
the binding character of all forms of tuition are declared pursuant to article 5 of this directive.
2. Pursuant to the SZŘ ČVUT article 10, par. 3c, it is possible to require active participation
in the seminars and to check home assignments. Provided that a student is not prepared, nor
equipped with the necessary aids that have been declared well in advance and that would
enable active participation, his/her participation in the particular seminar can be denied and
he/she must participate in a seminar on a compensatory date according to the capacities of the
individual dates of the seminars. The same can be applied also in case when a student is late
for the lesson, which would prevent him from full participation in the course of the lesson, or
this would interfere with the course of a lecture for the whole class. However, the provision of
article 17, paragraph 3 of SZŘ ČVUT is not thus violated.
3. Credits and graded credits from the subjects enrolled in the semester are habitually granted
in the last week of the semester. A student is obliged to acquire credits and graded credits
from the subjects enrolled in the semester by the end of the respective exam period at the
latest. A credit/graded credit is granted by the tutor (in exceptional cases, e.g. absence due to
ill health, business trips etc., it is granted by the teacher responsible for the lectures, or by the
head of the supervising department). In case that the tutor is no longer working at CTU
FBME, this situation must be solved exclusively at the department supervising the subject, or
4. If the subject is terminated by a credit and an exam, a student is obliged to acquire the
credit before a regular term of the exam.
5. Exams and re-sits are possible to take during an exam period, exceptionally within the last
week of a semester. In case of so called “course lectures”, it is possible to take credits, graded
credits, and exams, upon an agreement with the examiner immediately after finishing this
course (applicable mainly in the combined form of studies) with the exception of the fields
with a shorter semester declared directly in the accreditation. In such case, this fact, in a form
of a modified exam period, is recorded in the FBME academic year time schedule. It is
possible to take the exams from the subjects enrolled in the winter semester even within the
exam period of the summer semester. Exams from the subjects enrolled in the summer
semester are to be taken solely during the exam period of the summer semester. Should the
student wish to take the opportunity pursuant to Article 13 (10) of the Study and examination
rules of the CTU then he has to have at least one resit date available. In the opposite case it is
not possible to ask for board examination.
6. In justified cases, upon submission of a written request, the head of the department
supervising the subject can declare a different term for terminating the subject.
7. A student enrols for exams solely through the components studies (KOS) of the information
system of CTU, where all the regular exams and re-sit dates for the whole exam period will be
enlisted. A student must enrol at least a week (7 days) prior to the first exam date from the
particular subject. The same rule is applicable for further, subsequently enlisted dates
(particularly re-sits). The last date must be duly highlighted.
8. The examiner or the teacher granting the credit, or graded credit must clearly declare the
conditions for the course of the exam (what is a student allowed to use, what not, etc…)
before written part of the exam, or credit/graded credit (within any time period prior to the
exam, or on the day of the exam). Should a student fail to fulfil these conditions, he/she shall
be expelled and evaluated by F.
9. Students are obliged to identify themselves by showing their credit book (Index) before
taking each credit / graded credit, and exam and have all the results recorded in the credit
book immediately after acquiring these. If a student fails to show his/her credit book, he/she
will be denied from taking the credit/graded credit, or an exam.
10. Every student is entitled to view the credit and exam tests that he/she has written and to
become familiar with the evaluation, including marking the wrong answers. It is not permitted
to make any copies, or notes out of these tests. However, the periods for viewing are different.
In case of tests taken during the semester or in case of credit tests the students have the right
to inspect them immediately after their evaluation. In case of exam tests it depends on the
nature of the test and on the decision of the teacher responsible for the subject. Thus it is
possible to inspect these tests immediately or after the last exam date usually during the
consultation hours. Evaluation of the tests must be made public to the students 3 days at the
latest from the date of writing of the test regardless of its type.
11. If a student takes the opportunity pursuant article 17, par. 10 SZŘ CVUT on subject
recognition, it is necessary to meet the deadline of 5 years upon passing the respective subject.
The subject must have the same or higher level of termination and similar syllabus as the
subject at FBME, the evaluation must not be lower than “2” according to the older scale and
or C according to the scale in correspondence with ECTS (see SZR CVUT, art.15) and the
application must be submitted within first 14 days of each semester through the Study
department. Only subjects from equal studies, i.e. in bachelor studies from bachelor studies,
and in master studies from master studies, can be recognized. The syllabus is assessed by a
tutor responsible for the subject teaching, who is obliged to send his/her statement within 14
days upon receiving the application from the Study department of FBME.
12. Should a student take the opportunity under article 17, par. 11 SZŘ CVUT, i.e. studies at a
university abroad within the scope of valid programs and agreements, he/she must submit,
prior to submission of studies abroad application, or prior to any foreign stay, the comparative
sheet for studies abroad to be approved by the Vice Dean for Education, 14 days prior to the
application submission deadline, or at least a month in advance with the non-application stays
and be subject to language tests according to the applicable instructions.
Article 5 Subjects
1. A tutor responsible for the subject teaching through lecturers, and/or seminars of the
respective subjects, unless the subject contains lectures, is obliged, upon the approval
of the head of the department supervising respective field, to ensure to publicize, for
the subject of bachelor and master studies in a week preceding the beginning of a
semester in accordance with the FBME time schedule of the academic year, the
a. time schedule of the lectures, seminars, and other forms of tuition with highlighting
compulsory attendance in the individual parts (see art. 5, par.3), and who is
responsible for the tuition and where. All forms of tuition, including excursions must
be stated in this time schedule,
b. written assignments´ themes and terms of their submission, including evaluation
c. time schedule of continuous checks and evaluation of studies performed within the
d. exam requisites, conditions for granting a credit, or graded credit,
e. list of required literature, or requirements for knowledge of other subjects (see
f. evaluation means during a semester, exam share in overall assessment, and overall
assessment according to the classification scale ECTS,
g. electronic presentations (not necessary in case that there are study materials in the
form of college textbooks, university textbooks, or monographs in the Czech
language, which are available in the library in at least 5 copies, or it is an electronic
version within EIZ CTU, or the book is still available in shops),
h. materials for preparation and realization of seminars and further materials (instruction
for laboratory tasks must be publicized only unless there is a textbook containing the
instructions available),
i. for a combined form of studies, every tutor responsible for the subject tuition
publicizes the study materials for the respective subject as these were approved within
the accreditation process, with possible amendments, unless the study materials are
available in the printed form as college textbooks, or books.
2.Every tutor is obliged to publicize exact dates of consulting hours during the semester and
exam period (see Dean´s directive n. 1/2013 on Labour relations of tutors at CTU FBME,
their further responsibilities and qualifications for lecturing in all study programs, fields, and
forms of studies realized in the Czech language at FBME CTU).
3. A week prior to the start of the semester at the latest, every supervising department
publicizes a list of subjects in a full-time form of studies for the respective academic year,
approved by the Dean of the faculty, in which obligatory attendance, or checked attendance is
to be introduced. This will typically involve compulsory subjects, that are included in the state
exams in professional branches, or the subjects are prerequisites for other subjects, or there is
high percentage of students failing the subject (high percentage of second enrolments in the
subject), the subject is lectured by a significant external professional, etc. Every supervising
department can select maximum 1 of these subjects upon their consideration; however the
department can also select none. See also art. 5, (1). Each teacher of such a subject must keep
the record of attendance which has to be available for checking during the relevant semester.
4. All forms of studies are compulsory in the combined form of the studies. An excused
absence is permitted in the scope of 1, or 2 days within the tutorial week, or 2 weeks
according to the field and time schedule for the particular semester (e.g. in BMT field, it is
two Fridays within 14 tuition weeks, in SIPZ (System integration of processes in health care)
and PRKS (Civil Emergency Planning), this includes one Friday and one Saturday within 7
weeks of tuition). The tutors will allocate substitute assignments for this absence. In case of
an emergency situation that would make a student participation in the lessons impossible, in
the particular medical institution, state institution, and/or in the Czech Republic, each case
will be approached individually by the head of the supervising department.
Article 6 – Subject enrolment
1. The enrolment means an enrolment in at least one compulsory, optional-compulsory,
or optional subject in accordance with the study plan. Changes to the timetable can be
made only during the first 14 days of the semester. In case of a subject with limit
capacity or a capacity close to its limit (typically 10 students) the changes of
enrolment are subject to the approval of the department who organises the subject. In
such a case the student has to submit an application on a general application form to
the relevant department which will immediately arrange for its hand over to the study
2. The enrolment dates including organising of the registration and other specifying
requisites are set by Decree of the Vice Dean for Education.
3. With respect to the condition of continuity of the selected subjects, so called
prerequisites of the subjects are introduced (pursuant article 7, par. 4b SZŘ CVUT).
This continuity is implemented in KOS and is clear from the information on the web
pages of the individual subjects. The meaning of the individual types of co-requisites
and prerequisites is as follows ( see help in KOS – item – Relations of the subjects):
P prerequisite
For the enrolment of the selected subject the enrolment of this subject in some of the
preceding semesters is required:
Subject B is a P prerequisite of subject A if subject B must be enrolled for earlier (in
some of the preceding semesters) then subject A.
Z prerequisite (so called enrolment credit prerequisite)
The condition for enrolment of the given subject is the fact that the student obtained in
some of the preceding semesters the credit from the subject:
Subject B is a Z type prerequisite of subject A if the condition of its enrolment is
obtaining a credit from subject B in some of the preceding semesters.
A prerequisite (so called enrolment prerequisite – complete termination)
The condition for enrolment for the given subject is that the student in some of the
preceding semesters successfully passed the subject:
Subject B is an A type prerequisite of subject A if the condition for the enrolment for
subject A is successful passing of subject B in some of the preceding semesters.
K Co- requisite
The selected subject must be enrolled for at the latest together with:
Subject B is a co-requisite of subject A if subject B has to be enrolled for earlier (in
some of the preceding semesters) or simultaneously (in the same semester) with
subject A.
N – Prohibition of enrolment
The selected subject must not be enrolled into together with:
Subject B is in “prohibition of enrolment relationship” to subject A if subject A must
not be enrolled into if subject B has already been passed or subject B is enrolled for in
the same semester in which subject A is enrolled into. This relationship is not
Q Previous assessment (so called exam prerequisite)
The selected subject can be assessed only after assessment of this subject:
Subject B is in “previous assessment relationship” to subject A if the date for passing
of subject B must be prior to the date of passing of subject A.
R Replacement
The selected subject is a replacement for the following:
Subject A replaces subject B if during the check of study plans passing of subject A
can be regarded as passing of subject B which is mentioned in the study plan. The
relationship is not symmetrical.
Relationships P, A, Z, K, N are checked during the check of the enrolment and during
the attempt to enrol into the subject.
The selected subject is subject A (first subject), the subject which is in relation to it is
the subject B (the second subject).
This text was adopted from the relevant help to iKOS.
4. When enrolling repeatedly for a subject, a student must pass the subject in the scope
stated in the current study plan. A current teacher responsible for the subject tuition
declares the details. This includes even a possibility of subject recognition, or nonrecognition. In such case, a student is obliged to solve the situation by filing an
application on subject recognition (form on a general application) within the first 14
days, in the department supervising the particular subject. The department is obliged,
through a teacher responsible for the tuition, to reply to the application on subject
recognition in a week following the submission. A student can enrol for a subject
already passed (twice at most). However, the study results acquired following the first
enrolment are thus cancelled. Credits for each subject can be counted in only once. If
the subject is taught in various forms, all these forms are, for the purpose of reporting,
considered as one subject. A student in a bachelor study program can enrol in a
different form of the same subject in the master studies, if the subject covers an equal
professional area.
5. The optional subjects are enlisted as one set of subjects for all study programs and
fields. It is possible for a student to enrol in any compulsory and optional-compulsory
subject within CTU in the form of an optional subject. Equally, any subject within
CTU, that is coherent with a student´s profile, can be recognized as an optional –
compulsory subject. A field department decides on the recognition, and the application
of the student is always submitted to the study department.
6. The enrolment in the schedule is performed through KOS in the manner of preference
of students on the basis of weighted sum of credits acquired within the last two
semesters. The more successful a student is the better schedule he/she can create. The
1st year students are enabled to enter the schedule at once, since they have no results
on the basis of which they can be assessed.
7. The student has the right to complete the study in the study program and branch which
he commenced. In case of a change in accreditation the so called subject equivalents
between the individual accreditations can be employed or a passage to the new
accreditation with respect to the study plan on the basis of an application of the student
can be arranged. In such cases an adjustment of prerequisites can be asked for. This
mainly concerns students who recommence after interruption.
Article 7 Final state exams
1. Final state exam (hereafter only FSEs) verifies students´ knowledge and skills required
by the syllabus of the bachelor or master study program, as well as the ability to apply
the knowledge in the professional practice.
2. FSEs consists of Bachelor thesis defence (in case of a bachelor study program), and
diploma thesis defence (in case of a master study program), and an oral examination
from the thematic areas of the theoretical grounds and profile subjects of the field
studied, and possibly, depending on the study field, also of a practical exam. The Dean
of FBME declares, pursuant to a proposal of the head of the department supervising
the study field, oral examination topics, that would be publicized at the latest by the
end of the tutorial part of a semester preceding the FSEs. A student takes the exam
from two, three, or four thematic areas, according to the study field. In case of the
option to select the themes, a student is obligated to do so.
3. A student enrols in FSEs through KOS at the latest by the enrolment in the semester at
the latest, in which the FSEs take place. June/July dates are binding for all CTU
FBME students. August/September dates are only substitute dates for very exceptional
cases or rather as resit date. Standard substitute date is June/July of the following
academic year. Any postponement or cancellation of the date is possible only on the
basis of an application specifying the serious reason to the Dean of the faculty,
submitted to the Study department 1 month prior to the date of FSEs at the latest. The
requisite for FSEs is successful passing of all compulsory subjects and defined number
of compulsory-optional subjects according to the Study plan of the study field and
acquiring minimally:
 180 credits within the studies including Bachelor thesis in the bachelor study
field Biomedical informatics
 180 credits within the studies including Bachelor thesis plus fulfilling practice
in the bachelor study program Biomedical technician,
 180 credits within the studies including Bachelor thesis and including fulfilling
practice in the bachelor study program Optician and Optometrics,
Physiotherapy, Radiology assistant, Paramedics, Planning and crisis
management, Medical laboratory assistant
 120 credits within the studies, including Diploma thesis in case of Master study
4. A student is invited to the FSEs for a specific date (date, room, time) through the
websites of the faculty http://www.fbmi.cvut.cz/studenti.szz
Article 8 Bachelor thesis and Diploma thesis
1. The themes of the bachelor and diploma theses are designed by the academic staff, or
externs. The proposals are submitted to the supervising department by the end of the
summer semester at the latest. The department discusses the proposals, approves, and
list them within the first month of the winter semester of the academic year in case of
a bachelor study program, and by the end of the tuition in the summer semester
preceding academic year in case of master studies.
2. The students are obliged to select the theme of their bachelor thesis within the tuition
period (starting with the second month) in the semester preceding the semester in
which the students are to submit the bachelor thesis. In case of a diploma thesis, the
students are obliged to select the theme by the end of the exam period of the summer
semester of the 1st year. The exception is bachelor thesis theme selection in the
Biomedical technician field, in which there is a requisite of continuity with the Team
project and thus the selection is postponed to the last 4 weeks of the winter semester of
the academic year. The student receives the theme of the bachelor thesis by the end of
3. A student, covering a bachelor, or diploma thesis´ topic, designed by an extern, can be
assigned a bachelor, or diploma thesis supervisor from the academic staff of FBME,
and the extern will be a consultant. The field department can decide that an extern can
be a supervisor.
4. A student obtains the bachelor thesis´ theme at the secretariat of the field department
on a respective form at the beginning of a semester, in which he/she enrolled the
bachelor thesis as a subject. The validity of the theme is limited for three subsequent
semesters. A student receives the diploma thesis´ theme at the secretariat of the field
department at the start of the winter semester of the 2nd year. The validity is limited for
4 subsequent semesters. On the bachelor, or diploma thesis´ theme, there is a clause:
Validity of the theme until: pursuant the above stated regulation. The dates of FSEs
are not stated on the bachelor, or diploma thesis´ theme. The date on a student´s
application is determinative.
5. A student enrols the bachelor thesis as a subject in a semester, in which he/she
supposes to graduate. The same is applied in case of a diploma thesis. A credit for the
bachelor, or diploma thesis, which meets all the requirements, is granted by the
supervisor of the thesis (in exceptional cases, e.g. absence due to an illness, business
trip, etc., the head of the department supervising the study field, or a person
appointed). This credit must be recorded in the credit book (Index) and in KOS and
the secretary of the relevant department can accept the bachelor or master thesis on the
basis of this registration. The rule is that in case of an extern the credit has to be
recorded in the credit book and subsequently the secretary of the relevant department
registers the credit in KOS. In case of the absence of the supervisor (extern) the
supervisor must provably declare that he agrees with granting the credit which will be
recorded by the head of the relevant department.
6. A student writes the bachelor, or diploma thesis in the Czech, Slovak, or English
language. In case of writing in English language, the thesis contains the theme in
Czech and English language. In the study field that is accredited in the Russian
language, a student writes the bachelor, or diploma thesis in the Russian language, or
7. A student is obliged to submit the bachelor or diploma thesis by the deadlines given by
the time sheet for the respective academic year of FBME. Should a student fail to
submit the bachelor, or diploma thesis in the time period given, with no apology, or
his/her apology is not accepted, the student is classified “F” (failed). The apology is to
be submitted to the Dean of the faculty together with the opinion of the head of the
department supervising the respective study field.
8. The requirements for bachelor or diploma thesis are given in the instructions available
on http://knihovny.cvut.cz. Furthermore, a student is to submit all the requisites in
written and electronic form and write the bachelor, or diploma thesis in accordance
with specifications of CTU FBME, with the Methodology directive for publicizing the
theses at CUT, with the Dean´s directive n. 2/2013 on procedure for detecting
plagiarism in qualification works of the students of CTU FBME in the Czech study
programmes, and with the Rector´s order.
9. Upon bachelor, or diploma thesis submission, the supervisor issues an assessment and
proposes classified evaluation. The supervisor predominantly comments on the
student´s approach to the work on the bachelor, or diploma thesis.
10. The head of the department supervising the study field appoints a reviewer by the
bachelor, or diploma thesis submission deadline at the latest. The reviewer issues an
assessment of the bachelor, or diploma thesis, and proposes classified evaluation. The
reviewer predominantly evaluates professional level of the thesis, and fulfilment of the
11. The head of the department supervising the study field enables the student to become
familiar with the supervisor´s evaluation, and the reviewer´s assessment, 5 days prior
to the date of FSEs at the latest. Apart from the students, who elaborated the theses,
their supervisors, reviewers and FSEs committee members can become familiar with
these assessments of bachelor, or diploma theses before the FSEs dates. This can be
done by personal inspection, by requesting the electronic form at the secretariat of the
supervising department, or through the system for assigning individual works at
FBME (system PROJECTS on http://projects.fbmi.cvut.cz/ ) or through the system for
publishing CTU qualification works.
Article 9 Course of the Final state exam
1. In all study programs, the FSEs begin with the bachelor´s thesis, or diploma thesis
defence. Within the defence, a student comments on the reviewer´s and supervisor´s
remarks and answers questions. The defence and the exams are in the language, in
which the study field is accredited and in which the student studied. After the defence,
there is an exam from 2, 3, or 4 thematic areas which the student stated on FSEs
application according to the study programme. The FSEs take place in one day.
2. In the study programme Physiotherapy, the FSEs open with a practical exam, which
takes place within one day, in a term separated from the other parts of FSEs. A student
has 30 minutes reserved for a written preparation before the theoretical part of FSEs.
The preparation must be on stamped papers designed for this purpose. These will be
subsequently filed in the FSEs report. The possibility to prepare applies for the entire
bachelor study programme Specialization in Health Care, and Bachelor and following
Master programme Population Protection.
3. The supervisor, stated on the theme, and the reviewer, approved by the supervising
department, can be present at the defence, the final state exam and the FSEs
committee negotiation.
4. At the end of FSEs, a student is notified of the achieved results, from both, the defence
and the individual thematic areas. A student is obliged to confirm this notification by
signing the FSEs report, this being applicable for both parts of the FSEs.
5. Further details are defined by SZŘ CTU(see art. 21-23).
6. In justified, exceptional cases, it is possible to realize the defence and the exams in the
form of SKYPE transmission, through sound and picture. As justified cases are
regarded particularly FSEs held for students studying in a foreign language, but also
cases, in which there are, on the part of the supervisor, or the reviewer, obstacles
restraining them from being present, while their presence is necessary. It is possible to
distinguish two situations regarding the replacement of the particular subject (student,
supervisor, and reviewer). In foreign language studies, the SKYPE transmission is
applicable regarding replacement of physical presence of a student, a supervisor, and a
reviewer. Concerning studies in the Czech language, the only applicable transmission
through SKYPE is regarding the replacement of physical presence of the supervisor,
or the reviewer. Pursuant to this directive, the physical presence of a supervisor and a
reviewer is not required unless the bachelor or diploma thesis is classified by “F”
7. At least two month prior to the FSEs, an official application of the student on the FSEs
procedure must be available, by which his/her free will and consent with the procedure
of FSEs will be concurrently expressed.
8. In terms of initiation of the FSEs, it is highly significant to verify a student´s identity.
This can be done by presence of at least one person, who knows the student from the
contact tuition, and also by showing an ID on the screen. The ID must contain a photo,
signature, name and surname, and the date of birth. These data must match with the
data in the Study department´s register. The appointed member of the committee and
the committee´s secretary verify the identity and the result, including the data, will be
recorded in the Report on the course of FSEs. At the end of the FSE, all present
members of the committee must confirm by their signatures that all the FSEs was
accomplished by a student, whose identity had been verified, and who realized all
parts of FSEs pursuant the directive applicable and SZŘ CTU in Prague.
9. In terms of technical equipment, all technical devices and accessories, (including
possible technical support) must be arranged conveniently so that the committee can
see and hear the presenting and examined student. On the second technical device,
seen by all members of the committee, the presentation including answers to the
reviewer(s) inquiries is available. The presentation must be delivered in advance in an
electronic form. The supervisor and reviewer(s) must have a clear view of the
presenting student and must have the opportunity to communicate interactively with
the student.
10. In case of replacing physical presence of the supervisor, or the reviewer in the study
field in the Czech language, it must be ensured that the supervisor, and/or the reviewer
can clearly see and hear the presenting student, and thus all the technical devices with
camera and microphone must be targeted at the student. At the beginning of the
defence, identity of the supervisor, and/or reviewer must be verified through showing
an ID on the screen. The result will be recorded in the Report on the course of FSEs.
Simultaneously, the supervisor, and/or reviewer will be introduced to all members of
the committee. In further course of FSEs, it is not necessary for all members of the
committee to be in contact with the supervisor and/or reviewer of the student´s thesis.
