• Admissions


The admission process at the Faculty of Humanities consists of two main steps:

  • Completing admission requirements specific to your chosen program(s)

    This can mean successful completion of an entrance exam or submission of relevant documents. For admission requirements, please visit the program-specific pages.

  • Providing proof of previous study

    All programs require that you submit a certificate of previous study. This means that you have to provide your high school diploma if you are applying to our Bachelor's program, or your Bachelor's degree if you want to apply to one of our Master's programs. The same logic applies to all Doctoral programs as well.

How to Apply

1. Choose a program

You can choose from our selection of Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral programs. By clicking on the links available at the bottom of this page, you can find out more about the specific admission requirements for your chosen program(s) and additional documents you need to attach to your application.

2. Start your admission application

You can submit your application online via our Admissions portal. You can find direct links to specific applications on the relevant program pages.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis starting from November and ending by program-specific deadlines. You can find the relevant deadlines below this guide.

3. Pay the application fee

Details regarding the application fee and how to pay it will be provided to you at the end of your application form. You can find more information on the page Payment Information.

In case you are submitting more than one application it is necessary to pay the application fee for each one of them.

4. Submit your application

After you have completed the abovementioned steps and attached all the necessary documents to your application, you can officially submit it for processing. Please, be aware that specific study programs have different admission requirements - this will change the number and nature of documents required of you during the application process.

Basic admission requirements include proof of completion of previous studies; i.e. completed secondary education for Bachelor's programs or a completed Bachelor's degree for Master's programs. Some study programs require that you sit an entrance exam while some require the submission of specific documents tp the application.

You can find more information about these requirements on the pages of our Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral programs.

Recognition of Previous Study

If you completed your previous studies outside of the Czech Republic, your diploma needs to go through a process of recognition or nostrification. This step can be done later in the admission process in case you haven't received your diploma by the time of application submission.

There are several ways how to get your diploma recognized:

  • Recognition by the Faculty

    This process is inteded for single use only and can be used for one admission process. The process takes up to 30 days and costs 870 CZK (approx. 31 EUR/35 USD).

    • Automatic Equivalency

      If you are a holder of a degree from Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, or Slovenia your diploma is deemed automatically equivalent and does not have to undergo the process of recognition.

  • Nostrification

    Nostrification documents have life-long validity and can be used for any admission process. However, the process can take up to 3 months and is costlier.

    Nostrification of high school diplomas costs 1,000 CZK (approx. 39 EUR/43 USD) while nostrification of higher education certificates costs 3,000 CZK (approx. 117 EUR/130 USD).

You can find out more about these proceses on our webpage, Recognition of Foreign Diplomas and Degrees.

The deadline for submitting your diploma is September 30, 2023. This date is the enrolment deadline for all students wishing to study in the academic year 2023/2024. Please, note that before submitting your diploma it needs to have gone through the abovementioned process of recognition or nostrification.

The extended deadline, by which you must succesfully complete all admission requirements in order to be enrolled in the academic year, is October 22, 2023. This deadline is intended for students who are still going through the process of recognition/nostrification at the time of the first enrollment deadline. Please, keep in mind that the academic year starts already on October 1.
