Undergraduate Program in Central European Studies (UPCES)

UPCES is a joint semester study abroad programme created by FHS and its partner, UPCES, CERGE-EI, Charles University. The programme is designed particularly for visiting students from American and Canadian universities. While American and Canadian students participate in the whole programme, the Faculty of Humanities degree and exchange students are welcome to select courses on offer from this programme. Degree students (both Czech and international) can attend these courses from the second semester of their studies onwards.

UPCES Courses Availability for Exchange Students

  • FHS exchange students can enrol in 2 UPCES courses per semester depending on the available capacity. They are also expected to select regular FHS courses in addition to the UPCES (YBAU coded) courses. Due to the small size of these courses, we are unable to guarantee enrolment in a particular UPCES course.

  • Exchange students OUTSIDE the FHS:

    We are unable to guarantee enrolment in UPCES courses in advance to exchange students outside the FHS. These courses are available only if the course capacity allows (i.e. not all the places are used by the FHS students). Course availability is to be checked in the Student information system (SIS) when course registration opens.
