LLL is not the same as regular higher education and systematic preparation for future occupation as defined by Czech Social Security Act No. 117/1995 Col. This means that LLL participants are not eligible for government-funded health and social insurance. LLL participant – though they may study hard – do not have the statute of a student according to Higher Education Act No. 111/1998 Col.
