International students have several possibilities how to study at CU. It depends whether they want to obtain a degree from CU or spend a part of their university studies at our university.
For applicants who wish to obtain a degree from our university, our faculties offer bachelor, master and doctoral study programs in English, but some degree programs are available in Czech language only. Therefore, applicants who have a very good knowledge of Czech language are encouraged to study in Czech language. Students considering spending a part of their studies at CU may come to study on the basis of intergovernmental agreements, exchange programs or study abroad programs.
There is no single office at Charles University that handles admissions for all students to all programs. Instead, each faculty maintains its own admissions office and specialized staff to meet the needs of their prospective students.
Self-financing students should apply directly to the faculty, which they want to study at. Application form for studies in English may be obtained on the faculty web site or from the Students Department of the respective faculty.
