Bachelor students

To be admitted as a Bachelor student the applicant must provide documents confirming their high school education (final report) in written form. Before registration, your high school final report must be validated.

To have this done, the applicant will need:

  1. an authorized copy of the final report with an apostille or legalization (depends on the type of agreement between your country and the Czech Republic – learn more at your Ministry of Foreign Affairs),
  2. a list of courses you took at the high school including hours per year for each course (again the original with an apostille or legalization) The courses you took at the high school will be compared with our system of education. If this comparison matches, your report will be validated. If there are minor differences, you will have to pass a validation exam. If there are major differences, your report will not be validated and you will not be admitted to study at a university in the Czech Republic.

These documents should be officially translated into Czech. The validation is done by the Prague City Council, Department of Education (E-mail: martin.fucik@cityofprague.cz) - not by the university.

A copy of the validated documents must be presented to the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the latest before enrollment.

  • There are no exceptions to the above rules. They are a legal requirement of the Czech Republic, not this university.

A copy of the validated documents must be presented to the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the latest before enrollment. More information.

The duly completed and signed application forms (with all necessary documents) must be presented at the latest by April 30. This does not apply to doctoral study applicants.

Master students

To be admitted as a Master  student the applicants must provide documents confirming their completion of Bachelor studies (validated before/upon arrival by the Rectorate of the Czech Technical University in Prague – send documents to jana.katarina.knapova@cvut.cz). If any university study was commenced, the student can ask for recognition of corresponding subjects at the faculty.

The duly completed and signed application forms (with all necessary documents) must be presented at the latest by April 30. This does not apply to doctoral study applicants.

More information.

PhD students

To be admitted as a PhD student graduation is necessary from a university with a Master degree (or equivalent) and pass a competitive selection procedure. Evidence of adequate preparation for PhD studies and also preliminary title of expected doctoral thesis are required. Basic information on PhD studies are available .

  • The duly completed and signed application forms (with all necessary documents) must be presented at the latest by April 30. This does not apply to doctoral study applicants.
  • Learning outcomes are measured by the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). This system  enables mutual recognition of credits and makes it possible for students to spend a part of their studies at universities different from their mother university without loss of credits. The number of credits assigned to individual courses correspond to the workload the students need in order to complete all learning activities of the particular course. Passing from one academic year to the next one depends on being awarded a certain number of credits.

Lifelong Learning Programmes

If you cannot arrive to Prague on the beginning of the academic year, for example for long visa process, there is a possibility to start your studies at CTU in the lifelong learning programmes. In the next academic year, you will continue in the regular study programme you were accepted.You may contact the director of the regular study programme to agree the list of relevant subjects of the lifelong learning. This way, subjects attended in the lifelong learning can be validated for the curriculum of your regular study programme.
