The course consists of lectures by academic staff members from the department of Physical and Macromolecular Chemistry (2*45 min per weeek, 2 semesters), combined with problem solving classes (1*45 min per week).

It covers the bachelor and master curriculum of Physical Chemistry in a more condensed manner. The target audience are international master students within the Erasmus programme and PhD students whose background is not Physical Chemistry (Physics, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, etc.). Czech students are also welcome to attend the course.

In the time of covid-19 restrictions, the lectures will be recorded and the recordings will be made available to students via google drive.

The course is accomplished by an oral exam, format of which resembles the state exams: A committe of several teachers interactively asks questions that the student is supposed to answer.

The problem solving part is accomplished by handing in a written solution to one of the problems, and presenting this solution before the class. The teacher may refuse to accept the solution if it is incorrect, or if its quality is evaluated as insufficient.

In the time of covid-19 restrictions it is possible to take the exam by means of a videoconference.
