    Commentary to the study plan

    ECTS Credits at VŠTE are based on the workload students need in order to achieve expected learning outcomes. They reflect the quantity of work each course requires in relation to the total quantity of work required to complete a full year of academic study at the institution, including: lectures, practical work, seminars, private work, and examinations or other practical activities. 60 ECTS credits are attached to the workload of a full-time academic year of formal learning and the associated learning outcomes. At VŠTE, one ECTS credit corresponds to 26 hours of workload for an average student, which is determined with regard to the study capacity of 1 academic year (1560 hours). The amount of workload corresponds to the organization of the academic year (13 week of teaching and 6 week assessment period). The total number of credits required for graduation from a degree program equals to a multiple of thirty by the total number of semesters of the standard study period of the degree programme (the total number of credits per semester is 30, i.e. 60 credits per academic year). This number includes credits of the compulsory, compulsory optional and optional courses. During the degree programme, the students may register courses of up to 12% more credits than the total amount of credits required for graduation from a degree programme. This rule applies to all courses (compulsory, compulsory optional and optional) and includes repetition of failed courses. The students can register into the semester only if they take courses totalling at least 20 credits in the first semester, 40 credits in the second semester including the credits of the previous semester, 60 credits in the third semester including the credits of the previous semesters, and 80 credits in the fourth semester including the credits of the previous semesters.

    GradeLetter symbolPoint value

    The classification is recorded in the IS VŠTE written designation. A numeric value is used to determine grade point average.

    Students’ grade point average is determined separately for each of their studies as a weighted average of the numerical values from all dates classified completion of courses, which students study in full, including the evaluation of non-conforming.

    Weighted grade point value of the course is given as a credit value. For more details please see the Study and Examination Rules of The Institute of Technology and Business.

    Graduation requirements

    The study is properly completed by a state examination before an examining board. The state examination itself and the release of the results are open to the public.
