Three-year Bachelor's Degree Study Program
In the course of the study, students must obtain at least 180 credits in compliance with the prescribed path of curriculum subjects (i.e. within all blocks of the curriculum, they must: complete all the A or compulsory subjects, obtain a prescribed number of credits from B optional subjects/courses and obtain the required number of credits from C extra optional) subjects. The study is concluded by a Final State Examination which includes, among other things, the defense of the thesis.
The form of the study is full-time study.
The standard length of study is 3 years; the maximum duration of study in the Bachelor's Degree Program is 5 years. Interruption of study can be a maximum of one year (this period is not part of the lenght of study: the student, during the time of interruption of study, does not have the status of student).
When exceeding 4 years of the total time of study, including all previous uncompleted university studies at other universities, students must pay, under the current legislation, before the start of every six subsequent months, the fee for a "longer-time study" (the amount is always set by the UWB Rector’s regulation for the current academic year).
Graduates from the Bachelor's Degree Study Program may begin practice or, after successfully completing entrance examinations, continue their studies in a follow-up Master's Degree Study Program at the LSFDA, at another faculty of UWB or at any other university in the Czech Republic or abroad.
The entrance aptitude examination usually takes place in the first week of January, consists of two parts and lasts about 4 days. The first part evaluates the level of the applicants portfolio submitted (the applicant chooses their portfolio to give the broadest possible information about their artistic range). Based on the assessment of the portfolio, the committee decide which of the candidates proceed further to the second part. In this second part, candidates take several practical aptitude tests over a few days.
