Students coming on exchange directly to DMES are advised to register for courses in the Student Information System (SIS) as soon as possible. If you are unable to do so (e.g. you do not have access to the SIS), please contact the course instructor by email.
NB: Courses at the department are not always open to Erasmus students due to capacity or other issues. The final decision about enrolment always rests with the course instructor.
The Department has a zero tolerance policy on plagiarism.
The submission of a work wholly or partly plagiarized shall be considered as a failure to meet the requirements for assessment in the course concerned. Consequently, the minimum penalty for plagiarism shall be the awarding of a fail grade for the course. Repeated instances of plagiarism shall result in the termination of study. Please also consult the Dean’s provision detailing the official stance of the Faculty, including a comprehensive definition of plagiarism.
Communication and Forms of Address
For members of staff, please use their academic title (Doctor, Professor) and surname:
Dear Professor Novotná / Dear Professor Novotný
Dear Dr Dvořáková / Dear Dr Dvořák
If you are unsure about the person’s title, please use Mr or Ms and their surname:
Dear Ms Němcová / Dear Mr Němec
Kindly refrain from using the title ´Miss’, from addressing all staff members as ‘Professors’, and from using first names only, unless the person specifically encourages you to do so (or uses their first name in correspondence). In Czech, the polite form of address (‘vykání’) is expected, unless agreed otherwise by both parties.
Official communication should be polite and professional, more like a letter than social media messaging.
The Department has a zero tolerance policy on any form of discrimination.
Discrimination is verbal, non-verbal or physical conduct that denigrates or shows hostility or aversion toward another individual because of their gender, race, religion, national origin, age or disability. Students or staff members who have experienced discrimination in any form, including sexual harassment, are strongly encouraged to approach our departmental coordinator, Katarína Palčová. We guarantee both confidential treatment and timely action against discriminatory behaviour.
