How to enter a Czech university as a foreigner

The state program of the Czech Republic provides for the education of school and university graduates from other countries on a budgetary basis, provided that they have a good command of the Czech language. This is due to the specifics of teaching; without knowledge of the language, it is difficult to stay "on track" and fully comprehend information.

Compulsory Czech language examination

In addition to presenting a certificate of language proficiency (level B2), you are required to take a university exam. There is an alternative - Prague Education Center language courses with the right to take the state exam. A tutor, let alone self-study, will not provide a sufficient language base, as terminology is rarely included in dictionaries and regular study programs. Prague Education Center gives extensive knowledge - in just a semester students master Czech language up to level B2 (above average), and in a year the level grows up to C1 (high). The main feature of this school is that it trains not only face-to-face in the Czech Republic, but also remotely. That is, you can get quality preparation for entering a Czech university from the comfort of your own home. You can learn more about the program on the official page.
