Please note that as an exchange student you should arrive to Brno so you will be able to attend the Welcome Week (Monday morning)! The latest you can arrive is week 2 of the teaching period as attendance at classes are a part of the final evaluation and traditionally, students are allowed only 2 absences per course!

If you know that you will be arriving later then the start of the semester, inform your Incoming Coordinator and your Faculty Coordinator/s!
