Students using the modular system (such as BBI, MOBIBO, EKOEVOBI) can take the semestral PE classes and sports courses as an optional subject; PE is not a compulsory part of their curricula (natur.cuni.cz/fakulta/telesna-vychova/informace-o-vyuce/telesna-vychova-pro-biologicke-obory-1).
Students registered for PE subjects (including the courses) in the SIS must take swimming tests before the instruction begins. This obligation also applies to students of fields within the modular system. Based on the results of the swimming tests, students can take basic swimming lessons. The tests are mandatory even for those students who choose other PE subjects than swimming. Hence, a student who registers for mountain climbing will still need to take a swimming test.
Students may apply for exemption from PE for medical or other serious reasons; more information is available at natur.cuni.cz/fakulta/telesna-vychova/informace-o-vyuce/osvobozeni-z-telesne-vychovy (Czech only). Professional sportspeople can also be exempt from PE duties. A student with PE exemption will not gain PE credits – for more information, see natur.cuni.cz/fakulta/telesna-vychova/informace-o-vyuce (Czech only).
During the academic year, DPE organises numerous sports events such as the Science Volleyball League, orienteering races, and canoeing courses. Such activities are promoted on the DPE website as well as on the Department’s Facebook profile. Students can join the University Sports Club (“VSK”), which organises events during the semesters and summer holidays. To get a better idea of DPE’s activities, visit the gallery on the Department’s website.
