Charles University has 17 independent faculties and each faculty has its own specific application procedure and admission requirements. Therefore, Charles University has neither a single centralised Admission Office nor rolling admissions.
Applications are mostly submitted directly via the catalogue whereas some of our faculties have their own application forms available on their website. Do not forget to attach all the documents required by the faculty.
Once the fee is paid, your application is complete. Now, the faculty's Admission Office will start processing it further. Note the application deadlines.
If you are still working towards your certificates or diplomas, don't worry. Unless specified otherwise, all the recognised documents must be submitted to the faculty by the enrolment date at the latest. Learn more about the official recognition process.
Most of our study programmes require some form of entrance examination. Exemptions are specified in the admission requirements for the chosen study programme (available in the catalogue).
Wait for your invitation letter to the entrance exam (if applicable).
