International Affairs

The mission of the international division of the AMU Theatre Faculty is to support and secure international contacts and the mobility of the faculty’s students and pedagogues. These activities are conducted on the basis of concluded partnership agreements as part of international programmes (LLP/ ERASMUS, CEEPUS) and as part of intergovernmental or inter-faculty treaties and agreements. For interested foreigners, the division provides information about DAMU study opportunities.

An important part of the division’s activity is help with organizing the participation of student performances at theatre festivals abroad.

Specific discipline courses

Students can attend classes not included in the basic Erasmus schedule at the respective DAMU Departments according to their admission. Their study program will be created in cooperation with their tutor.

In some cases it is possible that DAMU Erasmus students attend some of the courses at FAMU and HAMU. However, such admission is not automatic and has to be agreed upon individually.

Students are required to complete all the assigned projects before their departure. It is the tutor, not the student, who determines that the project has been completed. Please keep this in mind when planning your departure date.

BA and MA Studies in English

Overview of available programs

Further Information and How to Apply >

BA, MA or PhD Studies in Czech

Conditions

International applicants may apply to DAMU’s regular study programs. All applicants must pass the standard entrance examination as well as demonstrate fluency in Czech by passing the Department of Foreign Language's Czech language examination. If an international applicant passes both these exams, he/she studies under the same conditions as a Czech citizen/permanent resident.
ATTENTION: if the applicant does not succeed at the Czech exam, he/she will not be allowed to study at DAMU, even if he/she had previously succeeded at the talent entrance exam. The exam in Czech takes place before the enrollment.

Individual short-term study visits

Conditions

International students who seek short-term studies in English at DAMU can apply for a short-term (one semester) study visit. This is an irregular type of study subject to tuition. The applicants can contact the International Office of DAMU and submit the requested application documents. The applicants can be accepted either on submitting their portfolio, or they may be asked to pass an entrance exam. If the Head of the respective department approves such a short-term study visit, an individual study program will be offered to the visiting student. Please note that the international students attending DAMU as individual tuition-paying short-term students cannot receive a diploma from DAMU, only a certificate of attendance/transcript of records. No deadline for sending applications is specified since the applications can be accepted all year round, and the beginning and duration of studies depend on the approval by the respective department. Please note that some departments do not offer the possibility of individual short-term study visits for international students.

Tuition and payment

The tution calculation is based on the number of credits earned during the individual study program. The minimum number of courses in the individual study program is four, the number of credits for each course can vary, as specified in the accredited study plans. For more information about the tuition fees and payment please contact the International Office coordinator at  zora.hermochova@damu.cz .
