All study programmes carried out at Charles University in cooperation with foreign universities must be accredited in the same manner as other Czech study programmes. Hence, the preparation of the programmes must comply with the Accreditation Code of Charles University. The accreditation materials submitted to the Internal Evaluation Board list and describe in great detail the part conducted at Charles University.

Considering the international nature of joint programmes, several appendices must be attached to the proposal of the study programme. A description of these appendices and the process of their approval by the Rector’s Office is described here in these guidelines.

Mandatory features of international joint study programme agreements are described in the Rector's Directive No. 66/2017. This RD also lists several exemptions from the Code of study and examination.

The preparation and issuing of diplomas to graduates of joint study programmes is governed by Rector's Directive No. 61/2017 – “Joint diplomas issued to graduates of study programmes implemented in cooperation with universities abroad”.

The accreditation process is summarized in the following document. Generally, the time required for a successful implementation of a new joint programme is approximately two years.

In case of considering applying for a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Networks funding, these guidelines can be consulted. They outline options of Charles University participation in the scheme from the point of view of an accreditation procedure.
