Non-academic administrative agenda of exchange students at Masaryk University is mainly managed by the Center for International Cooperation (CIC), which provides support regarding the application process, study timeline, stipend management, housing, etc. The CIC website offers a wealth of information on almost every aspect of your study exchange. Additional information on the exchange at the Faculty of Social Studies, including a range of useful links, can be found here.
The academic agenda of exchange students arriving at the Department of Psychology (henceforth called your "home department") is managed at the level of the department, primarily by the Coordinator for Exchange Students (see contact information). The Coordinator (sometimes also referred to as the Departmental Coordinator) manages course selection, Learning/Training Agreements, etc.
The Department of Psychology at the Faculty of Social Studies offers a small-group learning environment in a variety of courses available for exchange students.
We encourage students arriving at our department to enroll in the courses we offer. However, exchange students are not limited only to the courses offered by their home department at Masaryk University. They can browse study catalogue of the Faculty of Social Studies and study catalogues of other faculties and departments at the Masaryk University to find suitable courses.
Because there are three departments of psychology at Masaryk University, students have many courses to choose from. As a general rule, however, at least 50% of incoming students' credits should be awarded by their home department. Therefore, students may be asked to add some courses taught at our department into their Learning Agreement if necessary. In specific cases (e.g., the courses we offer are full), we do not apply this rule.
Exchange students can find additional courses by browsing the study catalogue:
- courses taught at the Faculty of Social Studies, Masaryk University
- courses taught at the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University
- courses taught at the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Education, Masaryk University
Please, always make sure you have the correct semester and year selected in the study catalogue.
Students are advised to carefully read course descriptions when making their choices. Departments at the Masaryk University are responsible only for the courses they teach. Therefore, Department of Psychology (FSS) does not have any influence over the content or output of courses taught at other departments. For example, while our department prefers to teach courses which consist of regular lectures, other departments may offer also self-study course versions. For some students, this is a viable option. However, students need to familiarize themselves with the course description to align their expectations with the course content.
