The post-war Czech Republic needed qualified builders, so in February 1953, the Higher School of Construction was opened by the decision of the authorities. The first set consisted of only 259 students (only 121 specialists completed their studies before graduation), the training was conducted by 19 teachers (professors and master practitioners). It was assumed that students would work in the engineering, textile, ceramic and glass industries. The young university experienced its first reformation and division into two directions in 1960, and in the late 70s it had already grown to a campus. In the early 90s, four more departments were added, and in 1995, after certification and accreditation, the educational institution received its current status and name - the Technical University in Liberec.

In addition to the Czech language, you will have to meet terms and formulas in the profile direction, and it is with them that you will have to work when passing entrance exams, and then when studying at a university. The guarantee of the result upon admission will be a specialized training course, which you can find out about here.

Despite the proximity to the capital (just an hour away), the locals in Liberec practically do not know foreign languages, so you will have to communicate in Czech, and therefore you will quickly master this language. We offer training in conditions as close as possible to those in which students will study:

  • language learning in small groups (adaptation to Russian-speaking people);
  • various programs;
  • lessons at the training center in Liberec, accommodation on the campus with comfortable conditions;

  • entrance exams.

What you need to know about filing documents

Open days in Czech universities are held much earlier than in the CIS countries, detailed information is posted on the official website. In order to be admitted to the exams, it is necessary:

  • To nostrify (confirm the authenticity) of a document on education — a school certificate, a bachelor's or master's degree. 
  • Get a visa (if the state is not a member of the Schengen area) and a residence permit. All forms must be filled out in Czech, Russian-language documents must be translated and notarized.
  • Submit an application to the admissions committee (invitation). 
  • How are the entrance exams

The peculiarity of admission to TUL is a one—stage exam. For foreign applicants who have chosen free education in Czech, they will have to take a language test.

Within a few hours, you will have to "tick" the correct answers (out of the five options presented). The standard test form contains about 70 questions from different subjects. The main ones, of course, are specialized. Since the university is technical, most of the tasks are from the field of mathematics. Also, 1-2 blocks are necessarily devoted to physics, chemistry, computer science. One category is for the possession of abstract and spatial thinking, cultural skills. Points are awarded for a correctly chosen option, an incorrect answer is "penalized" – 0.25 points.
