The Faculty of Humanities provides high-quality education in the humanities and enables you to gain knowledge in a wide range of academic fields. We offer a multitude of study programs of all levels (Bachelor's, Master's, Doctoral) taught in Czech, English, German, and French.
The admission process at our Faculty consists of two main steps:
Completing the admission requirements specific to your chosen program(s)
This can mean successful completion of the entrance exam, submission of a CV and/or a motivation letter, or providing a relevant academic paper. 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 certificate if you want to apply to one of our Master's programs. The same logic applies to all Doctoral programs as well.
You can choose from our wide selection of Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral programs. By clicking on the links available at the bottom of the page, you can find out more about the specific admission requirements for your chosen program(s). There you can find out what additional documents you need to attach to your application and what exact steps you have to go through to successfully complete your admission process.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, starting in November and ending by a program-specific deadline. You can find the relevant deadlines below this guide.
The details about the application fee (760/660 CZK, depending on the study program) and how to pay it will be provided to you at the end of your application form. You can find more information as well as the exact sums on our 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.
After you have completed the abovementioned steps and attached all the necessary documents to the application, you can officially submit your application. Please, be aware that specific study programs have different admission requirements - this will change the number and nature of documents that are required of you during the application process.
Basic admission requirements include a 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 admission exam while some require the submission of an academic paper on a relevant topic together with the application.
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 yet. The exact deadlines by which you need to provide your recognized diploma can be found on the specific program pages on our website and Admissions portal.
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 810 CZK (approx. 31 EUR/35 USD).
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 documents have life-long validity and can be used for any admission process. However, the process can take up to 3 months.
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 recognized/nostrified document is September 30, 2020. This date is the enrollment deadline for all students wishing to study in the academic year 2020/2012.
The extended deadline, by which you must succesfully complete all admission requirements in order to be enrolled in the academic year, is October 22, 2020. This deadline is intended for students who receive their school-leaving certificates in September 2020 and still have to go through a process of recognition/nostrification. Please, keep in mind that the academic year starts already on October 1, 2020.
Please, be aware that foreign language study programs at the Faculty of Humanities are subject to tuition fees. All of the foreign language programs require the payment of 2,000€ per one year; the German Master's program, Deutsche und französische Philosophie, costs 200€ per one year.
