International mobility

Students from abroad are welcome to join us at the Institute of Classical Archaeology for 1-2 semesters in the framework of the Erasmus+ program. Anyone interested in the Erasmus+ internship first needs to agree on its topic and form with one of the member of the academic staff at the Institute as we do not open unassigned places.

Erasmus+ study program

For general information regarding the study at the Charles University, Faculty of Arts, check the following webpage.
For questions related to studies at the Institute of Classical Archaeology contact the local coordinator of the program: Petra Tušlová (, but first check the information given below:

The Institute provides every semester two classes in English, each for 5 ECTS. One is Current Issues in Archaeology (organized by Dr. Marek Verčík) which is taught every semester (in SIS either under AKAV00037E or AKAV00039E, depending on the semester), where international scholars are introducing their recent research. The classes take place every week or every second week and the host change each class. International students are asked to apply in SIS for the code ending with E, as this one ends by exam which might be accepted at your home university. To pass the subject you need to attend the classes and prepare seminar work at the end. The second class in English changes every semester, so does the teacher. Occasionally, there might be one more class taught by some of our PhD students, but this is on irregular bases.

What does that mean for you as a visiting student? Unless you are PhD student, you need to take more classes elsewhere at the University to collect necessary credits. There is however second chance – to agree with one (or more) of the lecturers at our Institute and to pass the classes otherwise taught in Czech language that semester by processing some of the topics in a form of seminar work in English (the form might vary depending on the lecturer). In such case you need to check the current schedule of the semester and directly contact the lecturer.
