Last update: Maxová Jana RNDr. Ph.D. (27.05.2019)

It is necessary to pass two control tests during the semester, eventually to pass an additional comprehensive test successfully. Attendance at seminars is compulsory. Another condition for granting the credit is the completion of the entrance test.

Credit granted is a necessary condition for passing the exam. The exam is combined - written and oral.
