Course pre-registration for Winter Semester 2023/24 will take place on June 12 – August 29, 2023 (23:59 CET) (see the individual deadlines in the Academic Calendar section). During this time, students have to register for all the classes they want to study.
You need to register for all courses at the Prague University of Economics and Business through the university information system InSIS. No other option!!!
3 stages of course registration:
For the time frame of the stages, please see the Academic Calendar.
The pre-registration: it serves to collect the interests of students in courses. If you do not show interest in the course, you have no chance to register it after the pre-registration is closed (only if there are remaining free places in the “Enrolment stage” – see below).
The pre-registration will be running from June 12 – August 29, 2023 (23:59 CET). At this stage, through the pre-registration, students show their interest in the courses they wish to study. It is compulsory that a student pre-registers for courses she/he would like to take. It is possible to pre-register also for a course, for which the system shows “there is no free capacity anymore”. Since the pre-registration is a system of orders, there is no time competition among the students, there is no first come first served basis – you can pre-register the courses also the last day and it will have no impact on the fact if you are included into participants.
If you miss the pre-registration – you will have no courses to study at VSE!!
You should choose courses at least for 15 ECTS (a maximum of two intensive courses!).
Moreover, bear in mind that the exact amount of ECTS credits depends on the requirements of your home university! Be careful!! If you order more courses and you get them confirmed during the automated registration, you have to study them! If not, it means you failed and you will have the grade written on your Transcript of Records (that will be sent to your home university directly). We recommend to register the courses you really want/need to study, and if, after the first automated registration you won’t get them, you can register them during the registration period if there is a free spot.

2. Automated registration
Automated registration is a process where the student is not involved. During this time, the registration to courses is not open.
Each course has its capacity, in the pre-registration phase, all students select their wished courses and their planned schedules. Then, the automated registration takes place and compares the students’ demand and the capacity of the course and select the students (based on several criteria) that will be registered.
You can delete courses after the automated registration BUT you cannot end up with fewer credits than the system put through the automated registration – e.g. you registered for courses of the total amount of 30 ECTS, after the automated registration you have 27 ECTS. So that is the minimum you have to study during the semester. You can add courses and delete another but you have to have still 27 ECTS as a minimum.
The enrollment is a stage after the automated registration where students can only enrol in courses where free spots are available.
This stage is based on time competition, first come, first served! (See the time schedule of the registration Winter Semester 2022/2023 – time and date for changes based on the year of study). The free places are visible in brackets. – Student can see whether she/he was enrolled or not once she/he enters the enrollment. – If the student was not enrolled automatically, she/he needs to be fast and compete with the others for the free places.
During the registration, InSIS makes internal technical processes and during this time, the registration to courses is not open. During the enrollment stage, the student can add courses to her/his previously planned schedule, if there is free capacity. However, you cannot delete courses, if it means that you will not achieve the number of ECTS you were automatically accepted according to your pre-registration order and you were signed up for!!!
- taught a few days during the semester on an intensive basis, in majority by hosting lecturers from other universities
- check carefully the timetable of the course which is inserted in the timetable in the section “NOTE”
- the day of the teaching mentioned in the timetable is the first day of the teaching only!
- Exchange students are only allowed to take a maximum of 2 intensive courses per semester
- You should manage your registration of the intensive courses carefully – an intensive course will likely overlap with another regular course. If you are going to be absent in a regular course, you should let the respective lecturer know beforehand. Usually, in the regular course, there are 1-2 absences possible – always check with your lecturer first!
a) those, you can choose already during the pre-registration
- The course schedule indicates the day when the course starts, however in the course “NOTE” it is stated when the course is actually being taught (the “NOTE” is available in the syllabus next to the timetable of the course).
- Registration through regular course registration – Course Registration Guide (in pictures) here.
b) those, you can choose during the semester (i.e. Extra-semestral courses)
- Offered usually during or after the semester, announced by Exchange office
- Registration through the extra-semestral course registration
International students can choose from a wide range of sports courses offered by the Prague University of Economics and Business, for free (the same courses are also offered to the Czech students, which means you can meet new friends from the Czech Republic very easily there).
Each semester you can choose one sports course during the registration of courses in InSIS (each course is of 0 credits value).
We advise contacting the teacher of the respective sport course well in advance to ask whether it is suitable for an English speaking student (sometimes there might be a problem regarding the instructions given during the course – e.g. pilates, etc.).
