o    Students who have not exceeded 3 years of study (Bachelors), 2 years of study (MPS) or 4 years (double-degree Bachelor programs accredited before 2018). The Ministry counts length of study starting from the official first registration date. Studies at previous universities are included. If students exceed the standard length of study even by days, Ministry then denies stipend for the current semester.

o    Students who do not apply for this stipend outside of UNYP

Please note that the Ministry of Education is the institution that determines if a particular student is eligible for Housing Stipend. Furthermore, as only students enrolled in their "first study program/field" are eligible, students who transfer from Czech universities could only be eligible if they "continue their studies in the same field" (internal terms applied by the Ministry of Education). Whether a student is recognized as "continuing study in the same study field" is dependent on the code under which the previous university reported the leaving student to the Ministry.

Study Abroad and Exchange students are not eligible for the Housing Stipend.
