How to Apply

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.


1. Choose a study programme

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.

2. Submit the application form

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.

3. Pay the application fee

Once the fee is paid, your application is complete. Now, the faculty's Admission Office will start processing it further. Note the application deadlines.

4. Recognition of your previous education

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.

5. Entrance exam

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).

Invitation letter

Wait for your invitation letter to the entrance exam (if applicable).

Short-term visa

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.

6. Letter of acceptance

With this letter in hand, you can apply for a long-term visa (if applicable).

7. Long-term visa

Admitted students with visa duty are advised to apply for a long-term visa or residence permit in a timely manner.

8. Enrolment and matricualtion

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.
