Terms of admission

To be admitted to a bachelor’s degree programme, applicants are legally required to have completed secondary education by passing a final exam (maturitní zkouška).

Applicants provide certified copies of their diplomas as proof that they have achieved this level of education. Applicants who have obtained international secondary education by graduating from a secondary education programme at a secondary school abroad, an international secondary school, a European school regulated by the Convention Defining the Statute of the European Schools or a school that obtained permission to provide compulsory education from the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic in accordance with the Education Act provide the following documents as proof that they have achieved this level of education: a certified copy of a foreign certificate of completed secondary education, a certified translation of this certificate to either Czech or English and confirmation from the foreign secondary school or another competent foreign body stating that graduates of the secondary education programme at the respective foreign secondary school are eligible to enrol in a bachelor’s degree programme in that country.

Proof of recognition of equivalence or validity of the foreign certificate of completed secondary education in the Czech Republic (nostrification) is only required if the Faculty of Management challenges the adequacy of the level, extent or content of the education programme completed by the applicant in another country according to the submitted certificate and requests that the applicant submits proof of nostrification of his or her education. As a university with institutional accreditation, Prague University of Economics and Business has the right to waive the requirement to submit proof of nostrification of foreign education under sections 48 (4) to (6) of the Higher Education Act and instead assess the applicant’s foreign education as a part of the admission procedure to judge whether it meets the legal requirements for enrolment in the study programme. Further instructions are available at https://edu.vse.cz/.
