The macbook is able to connect to the Eduroam network (wireless network at university), also all the web applications are compatible. The iPrint application sometimes makes problems during the initial installation, however, it should be fine afterwards. In case of ongoing problems, the Helpdesk in room SB 22 (Old Building, ground floor) can help.

Library

Lost and Found

In case you have lost any of yours personal belongings at VSE premises, go to “Lost and Found” in room NB 19 with your ID card and some Czech speaker (i.e. your Buddy) to ask for it. In case you have found something, follow the same process as described above.

Tutoring help

If you have any specific problems or questions or you do not understand any topic of a particular course, do not hesitate to contact your lecturer in his/her Consultation Hours, which are available on university information system InSIS (Persons at VŠE). Teachers are there on that time to discuss with you your questions about course and help you with solving any misunderstanding.

Academic Psychological Counselling

On the other hand, if you have some specific (personal) problems with studying or getting used to the new surroundings, you can contact the Academic Psychological Counselling. This service offers counselling for foreign students who come to study to the Czech Republic.

Current schedule of Academic Psychological Counselling can be found here. International students can also contact our consultants via email and make an appointment (urgent cases, etc.). We urge all students to come in the counselling hours only or upon previously agreed times.

Centre of People with Disabilities

Main target of the Centre of People With Disabilities (CPD) is to provide support and help students with diability in various areas by their study. CPD offers:

  • special education counseling, individual training plans;
  • basic social and legal advice;
  • Information activities in the field of assistive technologies, medical care and activities aimed at ZPO;
  • mediation of personal assistance services – maintenance, retrieval, errands, etc. movement.

Please refer to this site to get more information about the CPD.

University ID cards

Each VSE student is obliged to possess her/his own VSE identification card and carry it while being at VSE premises.
There are two types of the VSE ID card students can choose from:
1. Basic VSE ID card

The basic VSE ID card for 290 CZK enables:

  • Electronic wallet (paying for printing, copying and scanning)
  • Paying in canteen
  • Borrowing books in the library
  • Entering the library and some classes / study rooms
  • Access to the dormitories

 

2. VSE ID card with ISIC license

The function of the VSE ID card with ISIC license (370 CZK) is the same as of the basic VSE ID card. However, students can also use discounts in stores or restaurants outside VSE (please refer here to get more information about discounts with ISIC card).

For technical reasons, an ISIC card issued by the sending university abroad cannot be used as a proof of study when requesting for a public transport discount. Therefore, we recommend you request for the VSE ID card with ISIC license even if you have your own ISIC card.

Please have a look at this guide to see how to order a VSE ID card.

 

What to do if my VSE ID card was stolen/lost?

Try your luck at Lost and Found. Otherwise, you have to go to the SB 22 (Old Building, ground floor) where the new student ID card can be issued. You have to pay the same amount for the new card as at the beginning of the semester.
