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 the topic and form of the stay with one of the members 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 several classes in English, normally 5 ECTS for each. The only recurrent classes are Current Issues in Archaeology (organized by Dr. Marek Verčík) which are taught every semester (in SIS either under AKA500097 for winter semester or AKA500098 for summer semester), where international scholars are introducing their recent research. The classes take place every second week and the hosts change each class. To pass the subject you need to attend the classes and prepare seminar work at the end. Most of the other classes in English change every semester, so does the teacher. You might have a look on last years schedules (rozvrh) for inspiration (zimní semestr = winter semester, letní semester = summer semester).

If you do not manage to find sufficient amount of relevant classes at our institute, you may take classes elsewhere at the Charles University, the offer will be provided in SIS. Also, you may 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 before enroling to the class!
