Study Programmes offered by UWB
Three different types of degree can be studied at UWB:
Bachelor study programmes are intended to provide a qualification to enter a profession using current knowledge and methodologies and they also contain selected theoretical knowledge. The standard length of study including practice is 3 or 4 years (180 or 240 ECTS credits). The study is completed with a state final exam which generally includes defence of the bachelor thesis. Graduates receive the academic degree "bakalář" (i.e. "Bachelor"), abbreviated as "Bc." or "bakalář umění" (i.e. "Bachelor of Arts"), abbreviated as "BcA.".
- Master study
Master study programmes are intended to provide theoretical knowledge based on the current state of scientific knowledge, research and development, and their practical application; they also aim at developing creative skills. The standard length of study is 2 - 3 years (120 - 180 ECTS credits). Master study programmes that do not follow on after a bachelor study programme last 5 years (300 ECTS credits). The study is completed with a state final exam which includes defence of the master thesis. Graduates receive the academic degree "inženýr" (i.e. "Engineer") abbreviated as "Ing." or "magistr" (i.e. "Master"), abbreviated as "Mgr." or "magistr umění" (i.e. "Master of Arts"), abbreviated as "MgA.".
- Doctoral study
Doctoral study programmes are focused on scientific research and independent creative activity in research or development or on independent theoretical and creative activity in the arts. The standard length of a doctoral study programme is 3 or 4 years. The study follows an individual study plan under the guidance of a supervisor. The study is completed with a state doctoral exam and defence of the doctoral thesis. Graduates receive the academic degree "doktor" (i.e. "Doctor"), abbreviated as "Ph.D.".
Only the Faculty of Philosophy and Arts applies a credit system to doctoral study programmes.
A study programme can be full-time, combined or distance. In the full-time form most of the teaching is carried out through regular lectures, tutorials, seminars, practical laboratory lessons, consultations, etc. The student is in direct contact with the lecturers. In the distance form the study is multimedia based without direct contact with the lecturers. The combined form of study incorporates methods from full-time and distance forms. This means that study comprises regular consultations and self-study which is supported by study facilities, including e-learning tools.
