Children's corner Zkumavka
Zkumavka is focused both on short-term and "all-day" babysitting. Its mission is to help the parents in combining professional or student life with family. Zkumavka does not replace daycare (Zkumavka does not guarantee a place for a child every day) but it is an alternative due to its flexibility for parents, who gradually return to the UCT Prague after their parental leave and prefer to have their children a few days a week close to themselves. Zkumavka is there for children from 2 years old until the start of compulsory education. There is a condition for registering a child to Zkumavka: the parent or the legal representative must be employed or studying at UCT Prague. More information here (the English website is under construction).

It is possible to be accepted to study even if a foreign applicant has not been assigned a Czech birth number (personal identifier derived from the date of birth all Czech citizens have since birth). The student is then assigned a substitute identification number in Study Information System (SIS), which is (also) derived from the date of birth. However, it is common for a doctoral student who is a citizen of a third country to be assigned a Czech birth number later, as part of the procedure of issuing or extending a long-term residence permit in the Czech Republic and the issuance of a biometric ID card by the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic (OAMP). Czech Birth number is usually indicated on the biometric card, or it is possible to request its issuance. Citizens of the EU/EEA and Switzerland who have free entry and residence in the Czech Republic have also the opportunity to apply for the assigment of a Czech birth number (information in Czech at Ministry of the interior). This Czech birth number is also used for identification of persons in other systems of the state administration of the Czech Republic and therefore it is highly recommended to have it to ease the living experience in the Czech Republic.
If a Czech birth number is assigned, it is necessary to contact the dean's office immediately to update this identifier in the SIS (Study Information System of UCT Prague).
This is especially important in case the doctoral student wants enter into an employment relationship with UCT Prague (Work contract, DPČ, DPP). At such a moment, it is advisable to check in advance both at the Dean's office (SIS) and at the Personnel department that they both use the same identifier.
In case the information in SIS is not complete (Czech birth number is not registered), there is a risk that independent duplicate user account records might be created, causing various problems. If this already happened, it is necessary to resolve it with the Computer center (email@example.com) immediately upon detection of such situation and to inform the Personnel department and the Dean's office as well, so they can start using the same identifier.
