The University requires from each student that the tuition fee should be paid by the bank transfer and any charges required by the bank for this transfer should be covered from the student´s side (payers), so that the University will receive the mentioned amount in netto.

HEALTH MEDICAL INSURANCE
The Czech Republic normally recognise all health insurance valid within EU. Nevertheless, you should check with your insurance office whether this is the case of your particular health insurance or not.
All students are obliged to have a valid health insurance during their stay in the Czech Republic.
Students from EU countries holding a „Blue European Insurance Card“ should register their health insurance cards at the VZP Insurance Company:
Sady 5.května 59, Pilsen
Tel: 952 222 222
This registration is for free. It is necessary and obligatory in order to get a medical care in the Czech Republic.
Please bear in mind, that your European health card insurance (or with the E111 form and Provisional certificate) don’t cover non-urgent treatment, or medically assisted transport home following serious illness or injury entitles and for these eventualities we recommend you take out extra medical or commercial travel insurance with an insurance provider in your home country.
Students from non-EU countries do not register their insurance cards and they solve the payment for medical services directly with their insurance company according their insurance conditions. (These students must have a valid international medical insurance plan, or they must expect to pay cash for all medical care.)
Students are informed by their teachers about books and any other things needed and required for each subject usually during the first lesson/practical of the appropriate subject. We fully recommend students to be present there.
Our Faculty does not provide the students with study books. The students should find and buy the recommended study books themselves.
We recommend the Oxford Bookshop in Pilsen, Dřevěná street 8, 301 00 Pilsen, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, phone +420 371 651 029.
During October there is also a book-fair usually held at the Faculty.
