The applicant must attend a Czech language course one year prior to commencing their postgraduate study programme.
We suggest that prospective students who want to apply for a scholarship funded by the Czech Republic:
- Contact a local Consulate or Embassy of the Czech Republic in their country and apply for a scholarship funded by the Czech Republic.

Additional information for international students:
- Registration with the alien police
EU students staying in the Czech Republic over 30 days are required to register their address in the Czech Republic with the local department of the alien police. Students must register within a period of 30 days from the day of arrival to the Czech Republic.
Students holding a Visa are required to register the address where they are staying within 3 working days after arrival to the Czech Republic with the local department of alien police.
According to the University Act No. 111/1998 the University is responsible for keeping a student registry. One of the important details that need to be registered is the birth code (known as rodný kód in Czech). This number serves to identify the student in the student registry. Therefore it is necessary that international students whose studies are funded by the Czech Republic, i.e. all students who study in Czech, including students who have obtained a scholarship, must apply for a birth code.
