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.
For any news concerning the admissions, please visit our news section.
Start with this introductory website which will take you further into our catalogue of study programmes and their admission requirements. Also, check out the faculty website for more information.
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 or to send them in due time.
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 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 our catalogue).
If an entrance exam is required, wait for your invitation letter.
Applicants with visa duty taking the entrance examination in the Czech Republic are advised to apply for a short-term visa in a timely manner.
With this letter in hand, admitted students with visa duty can apply for a long-term visa or residence permit. Please, do so in a timely manner.
The date of your enrolment is determined by the faculty's Study Affairs or International Office. After the commencement of the academic year, students are welcome to join their first official academic ceremony – the matriculation.
