Linguistic and preparatory course programme for UCT Prague accredited studies


UCT Prague offers accredited bachelor, master, and postgraduate study programmes in the Czech language as well as selected bachelor and master study programmes and practically all postgraduate study programmes in the English language.


The linguistic and preparatory course programme for UCT Prague accredited studies (hereinafter “preparatory courses”) is designed for non-Czech citizens who, after finishing the preparatory course, intend to study in one of the accredited UCT Prague study programmes in the Czech language. No fee is required for higher education in the Czech language study programme at UCT Prague; for instruction in English, a separate fee is required.


Organization of Courses

Preparatory courses normally last two semesters: the winter semester starts in the middle of September and lasts until the first half of February; the summer semester starts in mid-February and lasts until the end of June.

The courses consist of two parts – a Czech language course and preparatory specialised courses.

For students who already possess some knowledge of the Czech language, a special one-semester intensive preparatory course can be organized upon demand.

In the case of participants interest can be arranged intensive one semester preparation programme fot participants with knowledge of Czech language at least at level B1 by Common European Framework of Reference.


Czech Language Course

The Czech course for students will prepare them for their studies by helping them to master practical use of the Czech language with an emphasis on active knowledge of the language and by preparing them for basic communication situations as well as for bachelor or master study in specialised subjects. Linguistic courses take place at the Institute of Foreign Languages, Ltd. (hereinafter: ICJ CZ) in Prague 1, Stepanska 35.


Technical Subject Preparation

Specialised preparatory courses include Basic Math for the Bachelor programme, Basic Chemistry for the Bachelor programme, and Basic Physics for the Bachelor program. The preparatory courses take place at UCT Prague and their aim is to:

  • Broaden knowledge about the Czech language by inclusion of professional vocabulary.
  • Facilitate recognition exams with the purpose of validating previous education abroad by Czech official institutions. Such a validation is an obligatory condition of enrolment to an accredited study program at UCT Prague.
  • Facilitate the first stages of instruction in the accredited UCT Prague bachelor study programmes, since the knowledge gained in the preparatory courses is very useful for students in the first year of education in such subjects as General and Inorganic Chemistry I, Mathematics I, and Physics I (all three of which are included in practically all accredited bachelor specializations at UCT Prague).
  • Mastering higher education techniques which are indispensable for successful graduation from an accredited bachelor, master, or post-graduate study programme.
