A supplementary round of entrance examinations may be organized to reach a programme'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 the individual Examination Boards.

(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.
In the case of a successful entrance examination for applicants from countries requiring a visa, a 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.
The admission procedure is two-round. In the first round, the Examination Board will select applicants according to their prerequisites for study - based on the annotation (in english) of the Bachelor thesis (or similar written output), the results of previously completed studies (or at least results of the last finished year; in the form of a statement of results) and the experience and prerequisites for study contained in the CV and the letter of motivation. Required documents must be uploaded at the same time as the submission of the application to the University Electronic System (UIS).
In the first round, which evaluates the prerequisites for study based on the documents sent, up to 50 points can be earned. The evaluation criteria are:
- 20 points – Previous study results
- 10 points – Record of the Bachelor thesis (or similar written output)
- 10 points– Experience and prerequisites for study
- 10 points– Motivation letter
Selected applicants who reach the 20 point limit are invited by e-mail via the UIS to the 2nd round of the admission procedure – i.e. to a personal interview.
