Courses included in 2nd to 6th year – phase 1
- registration of study groups takes place from July 14, 2020, 10 a.m. to September 17, 2020, 12 a.m. (midnight)
- registration of individual (i.e. elective and optional) courses takes place from July 14, 2020 10.30 a.m. to September 17, 2020, 12 a.m. (midnight)
This phase of registration is stipulated for students, who will have all their obligatory “A” status courses, which are concluded with an examination, completed (and thereby also entered in the STAG system!) by July 14, 2020, 9.00 a.m.
Courses included in 2nd to 6th year – phase 2
- registration of study groups takes place from July 30, 2020, 9 a.m. to September 17, 2020, 12 a.m. (midnight)
- registration of individual (i.e. elective and optional) courses takes place from July 30, 2020 9.30 a.m. to September 17, 2020, 12 a.m. (midnight)
This phase of registration is stipulated for students, who did not fulfil criteria for phase 1 of registration.
Courses from all fields of study for the 2nd to 6th year
Students use electronic registration to register for teaching in academic year 2020-2021 for courses they wish to attend this year, and for which their training has not been recognized as completed from their previous study (all courses registered repeatedly, i.e. courses, where training has been recognized, must be reported to the Students’ Office staff, who will perform registration “without training” to enable a student to register for an examination in the given subject without blocking the space in practical training).
This year, electronic registration for training is carried out in two phases. Students with all their obligatory courses successfully concluded with an examination, and the results of these examinations entered in STAG by July 14, 2020, 9 a.m., will be included in phase 1. Students, who do not fulfil this condition, will be included in phase 2 of registration. Registrations will be concluded on September 17, 2020 at 12 a.m.
Courses from fields of study for the 1st year
Registrations for courses included in the 1st year (also pertains to optional courses for the 1st year) will be made accessible from September 04, 2020, 9 a.m. These registrations will also be concluded on September 17, 2020 at 12 a.m. (midnight).
Practical instructions for registration
Students can register optional courses for the recommended and lower years of a study field from the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry UP, if they fulfil conditions of the prerequisites (see the "White Book").
Timetables for individual years of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry are published on the faculty website (click here).
Students can register:
- from the internet through Study Agenda UP.
- from the INTRANET network (so called user access directly through STAG client - the name used will be personal number L01…, and password is either “XBIRTHNUMBER” with no slash or a password already previously amended by a student). Registration in this manner is possible from UP computers (e.g. computers in IT classrooms at Palacký University Computer Centre “Zbrojnice”, Biskupské nám. 1, ground floor, next to the UP Library). Students registering in this manner are not limited by the number of users, and they therefore do not have to worry about getting blocked due to overloaded network capacity.
During summer holidays, office hours at the Students’ Office of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry UP are Monday and Thursday 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Should you experience any issues pertaining to registration, feel free to contact us at at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to resolve all matters as soon as possible.
Physical registration needs to be performed by September 21, 2020 at the Students’ Office of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry Palacký University.
Registration for the 2nd to 6th year of General Medicine and the 2nd to 5th years of Dentistry.
Students have a fixed timetable for obligatory courses within their specific study group (see timetables for individual years), which is why for obligatory courses they register into so called study-groups. Groups for the 2nd year General Medicine students are called 2GEME, 3rd year=3GEME, 4th year=4GEME and so on. If a student breaches this rule and registers for his/her timetable in a manner other than study-group registration, he/she exposes him/herself to the risk of having the entire timetable erased!!!
In order to register please go to Study Agenda UP (switch to the English version)
- select Log in
- User ID is your portal ID
- your birth certificate number (with no slash) is your password – you can change it if you wish
- select the link Preregistration
- if you are doing several studies at UP, in the IS/STAG table – Student information, select Stag login pertaining to the given study (e.g. L11022)
- in accordance with the instructions below, select type of preregistration, so called Study-group preregistration portlet (for all obligatory courses) or the portlet Preregistration (for the category of optional courses).
a) Study-group preregistration – for registration of obligatory courses
- select a study-group, using the link IS/STAG – Study-group preregistration
- timetable of a given study-group appears, if you agree with the timetable, you must register for the given study-group!!! (a computer monitor is usually too small to display the entire timetable, you should therefore use the right scroll bar to move up, in order to display the entire menu), by pressing the button Perform study-group registration, the registration is saved, alternatively errors in preregistration are displayed for individual courses (if any of the courses are not registered due to full capacity, select a different study-group or remain registered in the given study-group, but notify the Students’ Office (at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) about courses not registered
- timetable can be cancelled by Withdrawal from study group
b) Preregistration for courses (by selecting individual courses) – only for the category of optional courses
Students register for optional courses after logging in to the UP portal, through the Course preregistration portlet. It is clear from the timetables for individual years that for certain study-groups, some optional courses are blocked (clash with obligatory courses). A student must take this fact into account when selecting his/her study group. Registration for obligatory courses is performed through the Preregistration link (by selecting individual courses).
- using the link IS/STAG – In Preregistration, choose field/teaching Qualification select a block of courses (e.g. Optional courses)
- a course timetable will display upon clicking on the course abbreviation (e.g. LBF/VA031)
- select a free timetable event (i.e. click on a box on the right)
- save using Save changes
- the same method is to be applied for each individual course
- check the timetable you registered for
Once study-group registration has been completed, a student is required to check, whether he/she is registered for all the required obligatory courses, and resolve any possible shortcomings. If a student registers a timetable, but does not fulfil the required prerequisites for registration of some courses (e.g. Credit from “Paediatrics clinical training” is not entered in STAG, he/she will therefore not be able to register the “Paediatrics” course), he/she must, following fulfilment of such prerequisites for a course registration (i.e. once a credit/an examination is entered in STAG by a respective secretary from a given department/clinic), perform a study-group deregistration and then a new repeated registration of a given study-group! (For information about stipulated prerequisites see the "White Book"). If the capacity of certain courses in the selected study-group is already full, i.e. some courses did not register for the student due to full capacity, he/she must select a different study-group!!!
1st year students do not perform registration themselves. They are required to come to the registration meeting announced by the Students’ Office, which is where the registration will be done for them.
This provision is available for 1st year students ONLY!
Students going for study placements abroad, registered with the Department of International Relations at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry UP (Erasmus+ programme, student mobility as part of development programmes, etc.) have the right to priority registration from June 30, 2020, 9 a.m. to September 17, 2020, 12 a.m. (midnight).
Additional access to STAG database for additional registration for courses at the Faculty of Medicine, included in teaching during the summer semester of academic year 2020/2021 will be provided from December 16, 2020 (from 9 a.m.) to February 11, 2021 (till 12 a.m. midnight). During this period, students will be able to complete or amend their timetable for the summer semester. After February 11, 2021, the database will be closed again.
During this period, there will be no access to study-group preregistrations! Students can amend their timetable of obligatory courses outside the study-group, if capacity of timetable events allows them to do so. In that case they have to add this course to their credit book and have it signed by one of the registrars at the Students’ Office before the start of the summer semester at the latest.
Students registering a course without training (i.e. training from the given course has been recognized) do not register such course by the means of electronic preregistration (they would thus block the capacity of a given course for other students), instead, they should register it with the assistance of a respective Students’ Office staff. If such course is not registered, they will not be able to register for an examination from a given course.
Students can register:
A. Registration through web interface (suitable mainly for registration from computers outside the UP network)
For registration of courses, go to Study Agenda UP
- User ID is your portal ID
- Password is as set by you (corresponding to the syntax rules of portal password)
- Select the link Preregistration
- Under IS/STAG – Preregistration select field/teaching Qualification and select a block of courses (e.g. Optional courses)
- A course timetable will display upon clicking on the course abbreviation (e.g. PAT/VAA11)
- Select a free timetable event (i.e. click on a box on the right)
- Save using Save changes
- Repeat the entire process for each individual course
- Check your registered timetable for the summer semester
B. Registration through STAG client (only possible from UP computers)
If students would like to use computers of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry UP for their preregistration, they can do so at the Mores Study Centre at the Theoretical Institutes. Students can register through intranet (i.e. they do not register through the web, but through the so called “client” – displayed on the computer desktop under the STAG icon). Students registering in this manner are not limited by the number of users, and they therefore do not have to worry about getting blocked due to overloaded network capacity.
- A student logs into the UP network. His/her login name is the Portal ID and the password is a birth certificate number (without the slash). He/she can find his/her Stag login (e.g. L08022) at http://portal.upol.cz, link Contacts.
- A student logs into the STAG system using an icon on the computer desktop. The name used will be “Stag login” (L08…..) and password "XBIRTHNUMBER" with no slash (if a student has not already changed it in the past)
- A students registers from the top bar, using a link “Preregistration” and sublink “Registration by the field of study”
- Registration of courses is saved by clicking on the yellow floppy disk icon (top left) or using the F10 key
- Once registration is completed, it is advised to print out and check the timetable (i.e. a timetable for a student, not the study-group)!!!
- Self-registration, checking of study records
- Credit book
- Checking your study records throughout the year
- Additional registration
Checking of study in the current academic year will be carried out in two stages:
Stage 1 is done electronically by the means of “self-registration” between 01. 09. 2020 and 15. 09. 2020. Students check their completed study obligations for the current academic year and a list of courses registered for the upcoming year.
- students who satisfy the requirements of self-registration will come to the Student Affairs Office to have completion of their study obligations confirmed in the credit book between 29. 09. 2020 and 20. 10. 2020
- students who do not satisfy the requirements of electronic self-registration must come to the Student Affairs Office ideally by 17. 09. 2020. If that is not possible, they must come within the first week of their classes.
Frequently asked questions
Who can perform electronic self-registration for the new academic year?
Electronic self-registration should be performed between 01. 09. 2020 and 15. 09. 2020. You can self-register if you satisfy the following criteria:
- all your study obligations for the 2019/2020 academic year are completed (all credits and examinations done within this academic year are entered in STAG, including summer clinical trainings)
- you are registered for the upcoming academic year 2020/2021 (see timetables and electronic registration/preregistration instructions)
Do I have to self-register?
Self-registration in STAG is compulsory for all students from the second year of studies onwards who will be continuing their studies in the upcoming academic year, except for students who are only left with final state examinations to be completed. Self-registration is not performed by a student, who already had his/her studies checked by the Student Affairs Office.
What is checked during self-registration?
STAG performs an automatic check of the number of credits acquired, completion of courses with repeated registration, not exceeding the maximum limit of 90 credits per year, etc. You will be asked to confirm the data in your “Registration form A – overview of examinations taken in academic year 2019/2020” (i.e. a summary of all exams completed in the current academic year) and “Registration form B – overview of registered courses in academic year 2020/2021” (i.e. a summary of all courses registered for the upcoming year)
How to self-register?
Go through Portal, tab STAG – My study – Course of study.
Click on Check results and register for academic year 2020/2021
Check your Registration form A for 2019/2020 to make sure that all your credits and exam results are entered in the system as they should be (contact the respective department in case of any discrepancies).
Check your Registration form B for 2020/2021 (See if you are registered for all obligatory courses for the upcoming academic year. Register any missing courses or contact the Student Affairs Office for assistance).
If all information is in order, tick the box and click on “Register for academic year”
If you have successfully managed to self-register, have your credit book confirmed by the Student Affairs office between 29. 09. 2020 and 20. 10. 2020.
I have not completed some final exams, but I have the credits.
If you have not completed a final exam from an obligatory subject, request the Student Affairs Office for a second registration of a subject. You will not be required to retake the classes. If you have not completed a final exam from an obligatory subject registered for the second time, it is advisable to apply for an exemption from the Study and Examination Code. If such exemption is approved, the Student Affairs Office will register the course for you. If the exemption is not approved, your studies will have to be terminated.
I have successfully managed the self-registration. Do I still have to go to the Student Affairs Office?
Once your self-registration is completed, you will still be required to have completion of your study obligations confirmed. Nevertheless, you can take your time with this. Come to the Student Affairs Office between 29. 09. 2020 and 20. 10. 2020 (within the office hours). Do not forget to bring the following:
- your credit book (all credits/exams completed online during 2019/2020 must be signed for, all courses you are registered for in 2020/2021 must be filled in)
- Registration form A for 2019/2020
- Registration form B for 2020/2021
I have not managed to self-register.
If you are unable to self-register, your registration must be done in person at the Student Affairs Office, ideally by 17. 09. 2020 or within the first week of your classes at the latest. Do not forget to bring the following:
- your credit book (all courses you are registered for in 2020/2021 must be filled in)
- Registration form A for 2019/2020
- Registration form B for 2020/2021
What is the deadline for completing exams for 2019/2020?
All study obligations for the academic year 2020/2021 have to be completed by 15. 09. 2020. They must also be entered in STAG by 16. 09. 2020, 3 pm.
How to fill in your credit book?
Download a credit book sample to see how your credit book should be filled in. Only courses that you are actually registered for should be written in the credit book. All courses not completed in the previous year and registered for the second time also need to be written in the credit book.
- credit book sample General Medicine (2nd to 6th year)
- credit book sample Dentistry (2nd to 5th year)
Results of all study obligations are recordeds in your credit book and electronically in STAG.
It is in your own interest to check that your credits and examination results are entered in STAG within the stipulated deadline, which is tree working days from completing a respective credit/exam (STAG - My study - Grades and course credits).
If you find any discrepancies, contact the respective department (the secretary or your teacher).
