How to apply

The admission process for our Bachelor and Master programs is online only and there is no entrance exam. We will evaluate your application solely on the basis of the documents you will have submitted.

If you are going to need a student visa to study in Czechia, we strongly recommend the early-bird application deadline. That way, you will have enough time to obtain a visa before enrolling in the program.

When you submit the application, you will also have to pay the application fee which is currently 830 CZK (approximately 35 EUR). This has to be done by the application deadline you are aiming for.

When to apply?

Regular application deadline: 30 April 2023

Early-bird application deadline: 28 February 2023
(this deadline is strongly recommended for visa-seeking students)

Scholarships

Our programs are paid but we offer a set of scholarships to help you with the costs. The scholarships come in two forms: as reductions on tuition fee or a lump-sum support of your living costs. 

Tuition fee reductions are awarded for excellent admissions to the first-year students and for excellent study results in the previous academic year to the second-year MA students and the second- and third-year BA students. We award this type of scholarship automatically based on your results, so you don’t have to apply for them in advance. Usually, 10-20 % of the best applicants/students are awarded each year and the reduction is either EUR 4,000 or 2,000 according to your results.

Development scholarship is awarded each year to students from developing and transition countries. We award this scholarship both to successful applicants and current students. The deadline for application for the scholarship is April 30. The lump-sum is usually CZK 75,000 per scholarship and we award 6-8 scholarships each year.

Merit-based scholarship is offered to students with excellent study results each year. We award this type of scholarship automatically based on your results, so you don’t have to apply for them in advance. The scholarship is paid retrospectively for the study results in the previous years. The number of scholarships and their value differs each year depending on the overall quality of our students. The lump-sum is usually around CZK 30,000 per scholarship.
