Information for CU Exchange Students outside the FHS

Thank you for your interest in courses provided by the FHS. When selecting courses, please keep in mind that most of your courses must be with your CU HOST Faculty.

On the SIS, the FHS courses in foreign languages available to exchange students may be searched by filtering the Faculty and the "Class" -Courses available to incoming students - via the SUBJECTS section. If needed, change the academic year via the „Setup“ tab.

In general, the FHS courses are available to exchange students outside the FHS per available capacity and entry requirements of individual courses.

  • BA courses are assigned with "YB...." course codes, while MA courses with "YM....." codes.

  • When viewing the list, please note that those courses listed with the "YBAU"course codes (the UPCES courses) and the "YBAC"course codes (the CET courses) are held in cooperation with our partner institutions and there are some extra enrolment restrictions that you need to be aware of, please see below.

However, please note that enrolment cannot be guaranteed in advance (neither by the IRO nor by the teachers).

Therefore, please avoid selecting your core courses outside your CU host faculty, if you list some of the FHS courses in your Learning Agreement, please consider some backup choices from the course offerings of your host CU faculty too.


Students register for the courses in a standard way via the SIS during the add/drop period.

For the exact start and end date, please, see the FHS academic calendar. Please, note that the dates may differ from those at your host CU faculty.

  • If capacity is full at the beginning of the add/drop period, we recommend you keep checking as spots may become available during the process.

  • Please note that if there is a requisite course(s) assigned to some of the courses, the system does not allow you to enroll.

Please note that in the case of UPCES courses, the YBAU-coded ones, the courses require online registration in the SIS before attending the first class. Please, do not email teachers with requests for additional enrolment, as neither the teachers nor the staff can add students above course capacity. For detail information please see the course information on the SIS (the Registration requirements section).

If interested in any of the CET courses, the YBAC-coded ones, please, note that these courses are available in spring semesters only for those exchange students who are spending a full academic year at Charles University. For detail information please see the course information on the SIS (the Registration requirements section).
