Subjects and credits

Subjects and credits

The average number of credits is 60 per year / 30 per semester. All credits gained during the period of study abroad - as agreed in the Learning Agreement and confirmed by the Transcript of Records / Traineeship Certificate - should be transfered without delay and counted towards the student´s degree. The requirements to be fulfilled for the successful completion of the semester are announced at the beginning of each semester. Students can find information, such as subject lists, the number of credit points awarded for each subject, the semester in which the subject is taught, on our website. The Learning Agreement is intended to give the student confirmation that the credits he/she successfully achieves during the mobility period will be recognised. The learning outcomes of the whole programme of study abroad should be compatible with (or complementary to) the learning outcomes of the home degree programme for which recognition is to be granted after the study period abroad. This makes it easier for the credits gained in the receiving institution to replace flexibly an equivalent number of credits in the sending institution´s degree programme.  Methodology used at FAMO / SVOSF : One credit equals to 25 hours of study - educational activities, school shootings of movies and individual work. General ECTS principles are adopted at an institutional level : Credits allocated in the curriculum are obtained by the student through his/her participation to the compulsory activities and also individual study plus working on student films. Such credits obtained for a subject are valid for the entirity of the term of study, their recognition does not make a difference if the curriculum is changed. Credits obtained by students based on contracts with FAMO / SVOSF may be recognized through bilateral agreements. The general internal rule: coefficient  "K"  multiplied by two-thirds the number of credits.

To successfully complete any subject a student must receive a grade of 3 or above for subjects given a ‘graded credit’ and a pass for ‘credit’ subjects.

A student must participate in a minimum of 75% of any subject’s classes to pass that subject.

Czech language course

Czech language course

Living expenses

Living expenses


Film Academy of Miroslav Ondříček doesn´t have it´s own dormitories. However, there are many possibilities to rent a shared appartment, stay in a private dormitory, or budget hotel. 

The average rental fee per month is from 3000 CZK upwards, depending on available accomodation, season, student preference and the intended length of stay. Private shared accomodation is the best solution for students, though this depends on first meeting a group you'd be comfortable living with, and how many of you there are. The school will help Erasmus students in their search for the appropriate appartment or shorter term accomodation before their arrival. Where visas are required and accomodation must be arranged before the student's arrival, the school will assist to find something appropriate, and the student must respect this pre-arranged accomodation. 

Food & drink

There are many tasty and cheap restaurants in Písek with typical Czech cuisine as well as Italian, Indian, Greek or vegetarian dining rooms. Their daily menu offers usually cost about 100 CZK to 150CZK per meal, plus drinks. There are many small local supermarkets in and around the town center, and larger supermarket and department stores a little further out for those bigger buys. 


In Pisek you can get around without any difficulty on foot or by local bus. For trips a little further afield, there are numerous bus and train options. 

About Písek

Písek was officially established as a royal city in the beginning of the 13th century. It has the oldest bridge (Písek Stone Bridge) in the Czech Republic. It has around 30,000 inhabitants and has been home to many famous Czech poets, composers and painters. No wonder - the backdrop of the town's historical centre, the river and the surrounding countryside are inspiring, mysterious and visually attractive. Sometimes called "the Pearl on the Otava river", Pisek and South Bohemia has always been a very popular filming location for local and foreign crews. Písek itself appears in many of the classic Czech movies. The town provides an excellent environment for students, who are able to focus on their filmmaking studies without the disruptions of a large city. Though a small town, it is a culturally active one with theaters, cinemas, bars with live music, an expansive municipal library, the important regional museum and the the Old Malt House, which provides an amazing place for exhibitions and interactive performances. 

Písek can easily be reached the Prague (the Czech Republic's capital city), and takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes by car or bus.
