  • Admission details: Secondary school certificate (Maturitní vysvědčeni) and entrance examination
  • Free option: In the Czech Republic it is not nationality that is decisive for tuition fees but the language of instruction, i.e. there are no tuition fees for foreign/international students who study in the Czech language (except when they exceed the standard duration of the degree programme plus one year, but the same holds for domestic students). All students pay modest admission fees.
