EXCHANGE INCOMING STUDENTS are students who come to the Faculty for study stays or internships, based on various programmes or inter-university and inter-faculty agreements.
ERASMUS+ INCOMING STUDENTS are EU-granted exchange students from EU member countries, coming to the Faculty for a study stay (for one or two semesters) or for an internship (staying for 2–12 months). To be considered as an Erasmus+ incoming student to the Faculty, the student’s home Faculty or Department must have an inter-institutional agreement with the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic.
Participation within the Erasmus+ student exchange programme enriches students from many perspectives: academic experience, personal development, intercultural competences and language skills. It also increases opportunities in the job market. Information about study at Charles University under the Erasmus+ programme is available at http://www.cuni.cz/UKEN-145.html.
For more specific information, students may contact administrators at the Faculty, who offer assistance from the time when students are considering their options to spend their study stay or internship at the Faculty, throughout the preparation phases, to the time of the actual stay at the Faculty, whenever they feel they require information or support, or face difficulties. Erasmus+ students are invited to consult with:

The Faculty offers many theoretical and practical courses for Bachelor and Master Erasmus+ students taught in English, for the areas of Physical Education and Sport (including selected courses for Sport Management) and Physiotherapy. The Faculty also offers selected courses for doctoral students.
List of courses taught in English in academic year 2016/2017:
Courses offered in both terms contain the same activities.
Courses will be run only with a minimum enrolment of 10 students.
Some courses have a limited capacity (e.g. outdoor practical courses – usually maximum capacity is 12-14 students; squash and tennis – maximum capacity is 15 students).
Many of the Departments of the Faculty offer the opportunity for internships, which are suitable especially for doctoral students who would like to conduct their research in the areas of Kinanthropology and Biomechanics. Internships may also be interesting for students writing their Bachelor or Master thesis.
Internships are conditional on the availability of a suitable Departmental host, and adequate content of study.
Kinanthropology focuses on the interdisciplinary study of human movement, with respect to Physical Education, sport, recreation, rehabilitation and physiotherapy. It develops themes such as psycho-social and biological determinants of an active lifestyle, psycho-social functions of physical activities, values and ethics of sport as a part of the quality of life, etc.
Biomechanics concerns questions such as the functional and structural response of the human locomotor system, tissues, organs and organ systems to dynamic stress fields; injury biomechanics, occupational diseases, human-machine interaction, degenerative organism changes, artificial replacements, tissue engineering, identification of loading history, etc.
