Practical information for students

All you need in one system

University Study-Oriented System (called USOS) is a comprehensive software supporting service process of studies. Students can, among other things, register for classes, check their schedule and exam grades. During the course of study, it is necessary for the student to obtain the appropriate number of ETCS points assigned to the course. You can check them in a special guide. Students are provided with the access to data to the USOSweb by their faculty office. In case of loss of password, the student should contact their faculty office.
