Registration with Foreign Police
All EU or EFTA students are legally obliged to register with the Foreign Police within
30 days of their arrival to the Czech Republic, if their intended stay is longer than 30 days. All citizens from non-EU or non-EFTA countries have to register within 3 days. To register, you must present a completed form for the Registration Card, a travel document and evidence of health insurance (e.g. European Health Insurance Card).

If you are housed in Charles University Hall of Residence and intend to stay there for the full time of your studies at Charles University, you do not have to report your presence to the Foreign Police unless you need a confirmation of your registration. The accommodation office of your Hall of Residence will register you automatically.

Course registration
After your arrival, Erasmus+ Faculty Coordinators will guide and assist you with course enrolment. Students can add and drop courses in the Information Student System (SIS) by the end of October/the middle of March for the summer term. Throughout the add and drop period (first three weeks of class) you should consult all changes to your study plan with your home coordinators, because it will not be possible to change your courses after the add and drop period ends. The exact dates for this year can be found on our calendar. The number of credits awarded for each course is specified in the electronic system. For further information regarding course selection and course registration see our videomanuals to the SIS.

Changes to the original proposed Learning agreement
Once you have finalized your study plan and enrolled in all the courses you plan to complete, it will be necessary to fill in a "Changes to Learning Agreement" or "During the Mobility". You may either use the form you received at the registrations or the form of your home university - it is not necessary to fill in both. You should compare the courses you had in your original Learning Agreement (signed by Charles University during the application process, and returned to you with your acceptance letter) with the courses you are currently enrolled in in SIS. Any course from the original Learning Agreement that you are not enrolled in should be marked "deleted" and any course you are enrolled in that was not on the original Learning Agreement should be marked "added". It is recommended that you fill this document after the end of the enrollment period, so that you will be sure of which courses you are attending.
