The admission process at our Faculty consists of two main steps:
Completing admission requirements specific to your chosen programme(s)
This can mean successful completion of an entrance exam or submission of a CV, motivation letter, and relevant academic paper. For admission requirements, please visit the programme-specific pages.
Providing proof of previous study
All programmes 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 programme, or your Bachelor's degree certificate if you want to apply to one of our Master's programmes. The same logic applies to all Doctoral programmes as well.
You can choose from our selection of Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral programmes. 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 programme(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 on November 1, 2020, and ending by programme-specific deadlines. You can find the relevant deadlines below this guide.
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, 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 your application, you can officially submit it for processing. Please, be aware that specific study programmes 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 proof of completion of previous studies; i.e. completed secondary education for Bachelor's programs or a completed Bachelor's degree for Master's programmes. Some study programmes require that you sit an entrance 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 programme 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 870 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 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, 2021. This date is the enrolment deadline for all students wishing to study in the academic year 2021/2022. Please note that before submitting your diploma it needs to have gone through the abovementioned process of recognitionn 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, 2021. This deadline is intended for students who are still going through the process of recognition/nostrification at the time of the aforementioned enrollment deadline. Please, keep in mind that the academic year starts already in early October 2021.
Please, be aware that foreign language study programmes at the Faculty of Humanities are subject to tuition fees. The tuition fee for English-language programmes is 2,000€ per one academic year; the German Master's programme, Deutsche und französische Philosophie, costs 200€ per one academic year.
