For Freshmen

First semester at the FIT BUT?
Don´t worry, we're here to help you!


After enrolment

Before the beginning of teaching


  • Before the start of the semester, Start@FIT is waiting for you: a welcome, training, familiarisation and fun event for freshers, organised by our Student Union. The event runs from Thursday 14 September to Sunday 17 September.

    At the faculty, you will be welcomed by your new lecturers, after which your older colleagues will explain how to set up your timetable and register your lessons, how to use the information systems, where to look and what to look out for when studying. You'll take part in matriculation ceremonies, the academic ceremony of being admitted to study. You will meet your new classmates, chat with your teachers. You'll have the opportunity to explore parts of the faculty not normally accessible to you, or take part in lots of interesting activities where you might find colleagues for group work while you study.

    The complete programme can be found on the website

    • On Thursday, you will receive an initial welcome and basic training on studying, timetable and information systems. Don't miss it! In the afternoon, you will pick up your student ID cards and meet your new teachers in the courtyard. Visit the event website for a complete schedule.

    • On Friday you will attend the compulsory matriculation. Do not forget to bring appropriate formal attire (suit, dress, etc.) to Brno. Afterwards you can join the tournaments at the club U Kachničky, for ladies we are preparing a Girls@FIT meeting. In the evening you can get to know Brno's businesses at the Tour de Pub event.

    • Tune in to the Student Union livestream on Saturday morning, where we'll discuss our experience of life at the faculty and answer all your questions. In the afternoon, you will be able to register for classes (timetable) in the information system.

    • On Sunday, the second part of the training on studying will take place. Along with them, don't miss the all-day start-fest: a packed programme in the courtyard, great student bands, food, drinks and fun before the start of the semester.

Don't get lost freshman year!

Note for students who are not new at BUT

Students who have studied at BUT before need not (and in fact cannot) set their BUTpassword. The password they used most recently remains valid. In addition, their previous faculty account is only reactivated. If a student has a student identity card (from any faculty), he/she need not order a new card. The identity card is activated at the time of enrolment; for the identity card to be used as proof of study, it is necessary to have the validation stamp glued to it at the Study Department. The ISIC validation stamp should be ordered at the BUT portal, whereas the BUT validation stamp can be collected in person. The BUT stamp can also be used to validate ISIC, thus reducing it to a BUT card.
