Extended study fee

Are you extending your studies and don’t know if you will have to pay for your studies?

Here you will find out when and how fees for studying at the UWB arise.

Extended study fees are regulated by Section 58 (3) of the Act No.111/1998 Coll, Higher Education Act.

How does the fee arise?

Should a student in a degree programme exceed the standard length of study in bachelor’s or master’s degree programme by more than one year, the public higher education institution sets a tuition fee. The length of studies also includes the length of all preceding studies in bachelor’s or master’s degree programmes that have not been completed pursuant to subsections 45 (3) or 46 (3) of the Act No.111/1998 Coll.

Does not counted:

  • Parallel studies are counted only once in the “length of study decisive for the incurrence of the tuition fee”.
  • Previous unsuccessful studies, after which a study program of the same type (bachelor’s, follow-up or long master’s) was terminated.
  • Study at private universities.
  • Registered period of parenthood

When will the fee arise?

The fee is always charged for every six months of study, by which you exceed the standard period of study increased by one year. Not necessarily identical with a semester.

Fees and coronavirus

The coronavirus waved with the calculation of the length of studies. In April 2020, the Act on Special Rules for Education and Decision-Making at Higher Education Institutions and on the Assessment of Period of Study for the Purposes of Other Acts was approved.  According to Section 2 of this Act, the period of study from 1 March 2020 to 31 August 2020 is not included in the length of study decisive for the incurrence of the tuition fee.
