Candidates have to bring ID (or a passport) to the admission exam. An applicant is accepted to study studies after meeting the conditions of the admission procedure and paying the tuition fee.
Information for Foreign Applicants - Based on the valid CZU Institutional Accreditation (whereby the University meets the condition set out in Section 48 (6) of Act No. 111/1998 Coll., On Higher Education Institutions), recognition of prior education is carried out by the University (we no longer require Nostrification). As a result of the admission procedure, the university will assess the fulfillment of the condition of achieving secondary education with a school-leaving examination pursuant to Section 48 (4) of the Higher Education Act or due completion of a Bachelor's or Master's degree program pursuant to Section 48 (5) of the Higher Education Act.
When enrolling in the study, the applicant must submit an officially certified copy of the high school leaving certificate. For foreign applicants, it is necessary to prove the “nostrification” of the acquired level of education or Recognition of previous studies issued by the CZU in Prague.
More information about the evaluation of previous education for foreign applicants for study at FTA can be found HERE.
If for serious reasons, a candidate cannot attend the 1st or 2nd stage of the entrance examinations, he or she may do so on a substitute date. Applications for an alternative date must be delivered with a written explanation electronically at the latest on the day of the regular admission exam to the FTZ Study Department via e-mail.
A supplementary round of entrance examinations may be organized to reach a program's capacity. This may be filled at the 1st or 2nd stages of the normal due date, or at the alternative dates of a regular round.
The Dean of the FTZ shall decide on success or failure in the entrance examinations based on the results of written tests and interviews. The candidate shall be notified electronically on the is.czu.cz/prihlaska portal, usually within 7 days. (The course of the admission procedure should be checked.) The candidate can ask the Dean to review his decision within 30 days of the publication of a decision. The applicant shall receive an original copy of proof of admission when enrolling in the course.
Two-round admission procedure for the ICARD program
The admission procedure for the ICARD program, unlike the TZ program, is a two-round process. In the first round, the selection board will select candidates according to their prerequisites for study - on the basis of the orientation and results of their previously completed studies, their experience, and the prerequisites for the course of study as contained in their CV. A CV in English and a certificate of the last completed year (or a graduation certificate with a statement of results) must be uploaded simultaneously with the submission of the application to the University Electronic System (UIS).
The first round includes an online test in English focused on a general overview of the candidate.
In the first round, which evaluates the prerequisites for study based on the documents sent, you can get up to 50 points. The evaluation criteria are:
- 20 points - General overview (online test)
- 20 points - Experience and prerequisites for study (CV)
- 10 points - Results of the previous study (list of marks)
Selected applicants who reach the 30 point limit are invited by e-mail via UIS to the second round of the admission procedure – i.e. to their entrance examination.
In the case of a successful entrance examination for applicants from countries requiring a visa, confirmation of accommodation provision shall be sent to the Embassy of the Czech Republic via a data mailbox, and that only after the electronic receipt of proof of payment of the fee for study in a foreign language by the FTZ Study Department. A single confirmation and notification of the execution of the entrance examination shall be sent to the applicant by post.
