History

UCT Prague was founded in 1952 but its origins date back to 1807 when the first course in chemistry was delivered at Prague Polytechnic. Reorganization of the polytechnic in 1920 resulted in the transformation of the chemistry department into the School of Chemical Technology, one of the seven sections of the Czech Technical University.

A number of key figures of the history of chemistry relate to UCT Prague. Among them, three figures are renowned in their fields: Vladimir Prelog, Nobel Prize winner, Otto Wichterle, inventor of contact lenses, and Emil Votoček, author of the Czech chemical nomenclature.

Several presidents of the Czech Academy of Sciences – František Šorm, Rudolf Zahradník, and Jiří Drahoš – are connected with the school as well.

UCT Prague was the first Czech university authorised to provide the Eurobachelor degree. As its name indicates, this prestigious recognition certifies the quality of UCT Prague bachelor studies at the European level.

Ernesto Lopez Morales is a likeable Mexican guy, currently living in Canada. It has been 8 years since he completed his degree in Food Preservation and Meat Technology at the UCT (in 2009) and we were curious how he looks back at his studies in Prague after such a long time.

How did you enjoy your study in Czechia?
It was an amazing experience. Study abroad is completely different from studying in your own country. You need to get along with a different education system, with cultural diversity, with new people. You get to learn how to be open-minded. And also Prague is an awesome city...

Someone can see chemistry to be too difficult, but those who talk about their life connected with chemistry have fallen in love with it. Sometimes it was love at first sight; sometimes it took awhile to find out that yes - this is the right path for life. Chemistry is the science which still keeps its secrets and even today offers a sweet reward of knowledge to everyone who wants to explore its secrets.

In the Heart of Central Europe

Czechia (in Czech: Česko), a landlocked country in Central Europe, has been a member of the European Union since May 1, 2004. The country borders with Poland to the north, Germany to the northwest and west, Austria to the south, and Slovakia to the east.

The historic city of Prague (in Czech: Praha), a major tourist attraction, is its capital and largest city with a metropolitan area population of over two million (just over one million within the city proper).

Other major cities include Brno, Ostrava, Zlín, Plzeň, Pardubice, Hradec Králové, České Budějovice, Liberec, Olomouc, and Ústí nad Labem.

History

Early History

Archaeologists have found evidence of prehistoric human settlement in the area dating back to the Neolithic era. Migrations to the area in the classical era included the Celtic Boii (third century BC) and the Germanic Marcomanni and Quadi tribes (first century). During the Migration Period (ca. fifth century), many Germanic tribes moved westward and southward out of Central Europe. In an equally-significant migration, Slavic people from the Black Sea and Carpathian regions settled in the area (a movement that was also stimulated by the onslaught of peoples from Siberia and Eastern Europe: Huns, Avars, Bulgars, and Magyars). Following in the Germans' wake, they moved southward into Bohemia, Moravia, and parts of present day Austria.

During the seventh century, the Frankish merchant Samo, supporting the Slavs fighting their Avar rulers, became the monarch of the first known Slav state in Central Europe. The Moravian principality arose in the eighth century.

Middle Ages to the Twentieth Century

The Bohemian or Czech state emerged in the late ninth century when it was unified by the Přemyslids. The kingdom of Bohemia was a significant local power during the Middle Ages. It was part of the Holy Roman Empire during the entire existence of this confederation.

Religious conflicts such as the fifteenth century Hussite Wars and the seventeenth century Thirty Years' War had a devastating effect on the local population. From the sixteenth century onwards, Bohemia came increasingly under Habsburg control, since the Habsburgs became first the elected and then hereditary rulers of Bohemia. After the fall of the Holy Roman Empire, Bohemia became part of Austria-Hungary.

Twentieth Century and Beyond

Following the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian empire after World War I, the independent republic of Czechoslovakia was created in 1918. This new country incorporated regions with majority German, Hungarian, Polish and Ruthenian speaking populations. Although Czechoslovakia was a centralist state, it provided what was at the time rather extensive rights to its minorities. However, it did not grant its minorities any territorial political autonomy, which resulted in discontent and strong support among some of the minorities to break away from Czechoslovakia. Adolf Hitler used the opportunity and, supported by Konrad Henlein's Sudeten German Party, gained the majority German speaking Sudetenland through the Munich Agreement. Poland occupied areas with Polish minority around Český Těšín, while Slovakia gained greater autonomy, with the state being renamed to Czecho-Slovakia. Eventually Slovakia broke away further in March 1939, allied to Hitler´s coalition; the remaining Czech territory was occupied by Hitler, who installed the so-called Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, which was proclaimed part of the Reich and where the Protectorate President and Prime Minister were subordinate to the Nazi Reichsprotektor (imperial protector). Approximately 390,000 citizens, including 83,000 Jews, were killed, executed or killed in the war, and hundreds of thousands of others were sent to prisons, concentration camps, or forced into labour. The Czechoslovak government-in-exile and its army fighting against Nazis were acknowledged by the Allies (i.e. Czech troops in Great Britain, North Africa, Middle East and Soviet Union).

In 1945-6, almost the entire German minority of pre-War Czechoslovakia, approximately three million people, were expelled to Germany and Austria. During this time, hundreds of thousands of Germans were held in prisons, detention camps, and used in forced labour. In the summer of 1945, there were several massacres with at least 20,000 deaths. Only 250,000 Germans who had been active in the resistance against the Nazis or who had been deemed essential to the economy were allowed to stay, though many of them emigrated later.

Czechoslovakia uneasily tried to play the role of bridge between the West and East; however, the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia came to power in February 1948, bringing the country within the Soviet sphere of influence. In August 1968, an invasion by Warsaw Pact troops ended efforts by the country's leaders to liberalize party rule and create "socialism with a human face" during the Prague Spring.

In November 1989, Czechoslovakia regained its political independence through a peaceful Velvet Revolution. On January 1, 1993, the country peacefully split in two, creating the independent Czech and Slovak Republics.

The Czech Republic joined NATO in 1999 and the European Union on May 1, 2004. Since 1991, the Czech Republic (former Czechoslovakia), has been a member of the Visegrad Group.

Geography of Czechia


The Czech landscape is quite varied; Bohemia to the west consists of a basin, drained by the Elbe (in Czech: Labe) and Vltava rivers, surrounded by mostly low mountains (the Sudeten with the Krkonoše region, home to the highest point in the country, Sněžka, at 1,602 metres [5,256 ft]). Moravia, the eastern part, is also quite hilly and is drained predominantly by the Morava river, but also contains the source of the Oder (in Czech: Odra) River. Water from landlocked Czechia flows to three different seas: the North Sea, Baltic Sea, and the Black Sea.

Climate

The local climate is temperate with warm summers and cold, cloudy, humid winters, influenced by a variety of maritime and continental influences.

Ensuring your Transcripts and Degree are Transferable across Europe

[ikona] => hvezda [obrazek] => laborator_bafa16.jpg [obsah] =>

The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) was designed by the European Commission to enable students to pursue part of their studies abroad; it also helps partner universities compare and mutually-accredit their study programmes. 

ECTS is based on a comparison of particular requirements concerning individual subjects and takes into account the time needed by each student to pass an examination in any given subject (i.e. time devoted to lectures, seminars, and self-study). 

ECTS makes it easier for students to choose from study programmes offered by partner schools abroad. Students may use the ECTS system provided that they themselves, their home university and the partner university abroad approve the suggested study programme.

Students who have successfully completed study programmes abroad may continue their studies with no difficulties, because their study period abroad (and their credits) will be assigned to official records at their home universities.

ECTS credit allocation based on the student workload needed in order to achieve expected learning outcomes

ECTS, the European Credit Transfer System, was developed by the European Commission to provide common procedures to guarantee the full transferability of credits for university studies abroad in order that they might count towards a final qualification in the home country. It provides a way of measuring and comparing academic merits and transferring them from one institution to another.

Courses are assigned a number of credits depending on the workload students need in order to achieve the expected learning outcomes.

The workload indicates the time students usually need to complete all learning activities, such as lectures, seminars, projects, practical work, self-study and examinations required to achieve the expected learning outcomes. The estimation of workload and number of credits assigned to each course is regularly checked and can be modified according to findings from the evaluations.

The credit weight is 1/30 of the average student workload during one term. The term usually takes 13 – 15 weeks. At UCT Prague 60 credits represent the workload required for one year’s full-time study, or 30 credits per term. All students are graded A - F scale according to the Local Grade Scheme.

Bachelor and Master's study degrees are realized through hundreds fields of study. Some of them can be combined with other field of study (even as an interfaculty study – a combined field from different faculties).

The List of degree programmes shows all disciplines offered by UCT Prague and demonstrates the way how to fulfill all conditions for study completion and getting the diploma within the ECTS semester workload (30 credits). However, the proposed study schedule is not mandatory, students can change their workload (they can study more or less than 30 credits per semester) or they can choose other alternative courses (if offered).

Erasmus Policy Statement (Overall Strategy) 2021 – 2027

The University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (UCT Prague) is a renowned institution with the reputation of being a centre of premier education and research in the fields of technical chemistry, chemical and biochemical technologies, material and chemical engineering, food chemistry, and environmental studies, not only in the Czech Republic but in the whole Central European region.

The mission of UCT Prague is to educate its students to become either top-performing professionals for industry, government or excellent scientists contributing to strengthening the European Union's global competitiveness by developing a knowledge-based, innovative, and environmentally sustainable economy. The integral part of the mission is the active promotion of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) to the public and especially aimed to spark the interest of the young generation in STEM. The same importance is assigned to the promotion of the values of democracy, openness, tolerance, education, and culture in our society. To accomplish its mission, the UCT Prague institutional strategy calls for all activities of the UCT Prague to be aimed at profiling the institution as the leading research-oriented university focused on a high-quality basic and applied research with an outstanding international reputation and commits UCT Prague to advance values of equal opportunities and to support the diversity of its students and staff.

The priority objectives (based on the UCT Prague Institutional Strategy) are:

1) Modernisation of the UCT Prague education system to increase quality and efficiency of study

Providing high-quality education is the cornerstone of any educational provider. The education offer should cater to the needs of industry and economy as well as to societal demand. Innovative curriculum development will have to be employed. New teaching delivery methods should be devised, including virtual and blended. Continue in the activity of the development of e-learning and other innovative electronic tools for accredited study programmes to streamline teaching and to achieve better learning outcomes. Use in teaching modern methods of project teaching and sharing of pedagogical capacities and infrastructure with other top workplaces at universities and in the industrial area.

2) Cultural learning of participants and creation of European Education Area

Raising participants' awareness and understanding of other cultures and countries, offering them the opportunity to build networks of international contacts, to actively participate in society and develop a sense of European citizenship and identity. Support activities that will lead towards the creation of European Education Area.

3) Development of key competences of students and strengthening their employability

The employability of graduates is one of the most important metrics for students to compare when choosing a higher-education institution to study. The employability of graduates is increased when they possess key competences, so-called "soft-skills", command a good level of a widely spoken foreign language (ideally two), and had practical experience from industry or business – which every student should acquire during his/her studies at UCT Prague. One of the best ways how to obtain all three is take part in mobility.

4) Effective internationalization of UCT Prague

Internationalization – the long-term objective of UCT Prague is active involvement in the international integration of higher-education and growth of cooperation on the international level in research and education with both European and non-European institutions. International cooperation in research and education is an essential condition for their further development the institution. Student and staff mobility, both outgoing and incoming, creation and implementation of joint study programs, internationalization of all areas of university life will help create an inspiring and stimulating environment at UCT Prague, where new ideas are born.

Subobjective 1 – Promotion of two-way mobility of students and staff

Continuation of promoting two-way mobility of students and staff, including in new formats, such as blended mobility, to help students and staff gain international experience and contacts for the future involvement of students and staff in international projects, creation and modification of study programmes or teaching in a foreign language.

Subobjective 2 – Support of development of Internationalisation at home

Inclusion the international and intercultural dimension into the study programs. Support activities that will help students and staff develop intercultural skills and support international understanding and will effectively support the international character of the university in a globalized world.

Conclusion

The vision is to utilize Erasmus+ Programme to help UCT Prague to accomplish its objectives and to strengthen UCT Prague position on the international level by enabling it to engage in cooperation with institutions within European Education Area as well as outside of it, what would not be otherwise possible at such extent. UCT Prague views the Erasmus+ Programme as an effective tool how to elevate its institutional quality and achieve institutional policy objectives that would otherwise take considerably longer time-period or were even impossible for institution of UCT Prague size and capacity. The participation in the Erasmus+ Programme is therefore an integral part of the internationalisation and modernisation strategy of UCT Prague.

Erasmus Policy Statement (Overall Strategy)

UCT Prague regards international cooperation as a vital part of its teaching and scientific activities and purposely extends and deepens this cooperation. Due to the active participation of academic staff in international scientific and educational projects and programmes (such as the EU FPs, TEMPUS, COST, COPERNICUS, EEA grants, NATO…), networking and contact making are continually expanding both in the terms of content as well as geographically. The main criterion for a new cooperation partner is the quality—related either to educational activities or to scientific quality and reputation; the assumption of mutual academic collaboration and reciprocity in student and staff mobility is very important. The areas of cooperation are linked more or less to technical chemistry, food chemistry and technology, material sciences, process engineering, chemical technologies and informatics, biotechnology etc. International scientific and educational events ongoing abroad or held at UCT Prague are also used for meeting new potential partners. Information about UCT Prague are disseminated through printed leaflets, brochures and presentations during staff international mobility.

At present, the University of Chemical and Technology Prague maintains nearly 150 Erasmus bilateral agreements with universities across Europe and more than 50 other agreements with partners not only in Europe but also in the USA, Canada, Australia, Japan, India and many other countries. UCT Prague is open to quality cooperation with all geographical areas. Cooperation with the European partners is of course the most frequent due to the easiest accessibility and lower financial cost.

The main objective of the internationalization is to keep UCT Prague at the top position with respect to both educational and scientific quality. Therefore, attention is consistently paid to the international mobility of staff and expanding opportunities to study abroad for UCTP students. The university seeks after all available resources to support long-term (one-two semesteral) study stays for students at all levels and this form of students' international experience will continue to develop. UCT Prague has fully implemented ECTS and Diploma Supplement Label, facilitating the recognition of studies abroad. For students mostly at doctoral level, internships and placements at leading scientific institutions are provided. Short-term stays at summer schools, conferences and workshops are consistently supported for students of MSc And PhD degrees. In addition to the LLP/Erasmus mobility, students participate in other international programmes, such as AAD, CEEPUS, AKTION, ATHENS, etc. The participation of scientific and pedagogical staff in international projects is highly recommended and supported; the presentation of results and making of new contacts are expected. The attempt to increase the number of teaching staff mobility will be permanently supported.

Great care is given to foreign students and visiting teaching staff. UCT Prague provides international students accredited Bachelor's and Master's study programmes taught in English and—for Erasmus students—a number of courses taught in English. The organization of Czech language courses for foreign students is considered an important activity in the internationalization and students' integration at the university.

Based on a long term cooperation with selected partner universities, double degree study programmes at Master and Doctoral levels in particular were established. Implementation of two Masters and two doctoral ERASMUS MUNDUS programmes resulted from multilateral interuniversity cooperation. Our further aim is to involve more Czech students in courses taught in English.

A very welcome and supported form of internationalization at UCT Prague is receiving doctoral students and trainees from third countries. Other successful activities we will continue to develop are short-term intensive training courses for students and teachers from third countries.

UCT Prague actively participates in a number of international projects and seeks for further participation in projects targeted towards teaching and training. The most successful implemented project is ERASMUS MUNDUS. Two Masters’ study programmes (EM3E and IMETE) have been running for two years; students studying under a consortium of European universities spend one semester at UCTP, some of them prepare also their diploma project and thesis here. UCTP has adopted all necessary procedures for issuing the joint diploma. Similarly, a doctoral programme EUDIME was implemented. During their stay at UCTP, PhD Students are actively involved in scientific research teams. The fourth EM project is EURINDIA where UCTP trains one PhD Student from India.

UCT Prague participates regularly in TEMPUS projects; in the past, through individual advisors/evaluators of several projects, currently as a partner. In this project, UCT Prague organizes intensive professional courses for teachers and students from Russian universities involved in the project.

Another form of cooperation is the participation of UCT Prague in ERASMUS thematic projects. The first one is the ISEKI-Food (originally FoodNet), which maps the teaching of food science and technology in Europe and to which UCTP has contributed a number of documents and data. The second example is the participation in the European Chemistry Thematic Network (ECTN and EC2EN2) which resulted in the possibility to grant IVTP graduates title EuroBachelor®.

Participation of UCT Prague in these projects is reflected in curricula modernization, creation of new degree programmes, awarding of double/joint diploma and implementation of new reaching methods and organization of studies. An integral part of the internationalization is an active students' club ESC and its involvement in the European network ECN; ESC plays an important role in the integration of foreign students into the local environment.

  3. Make a verified (true) copy of the Diploma and Diploma supplement (the copy must be identical to the original and confirmed by a Notary Public)

  4. Authenticate the stamps and signatures on the verified copy of the Diploma and the Diploma Supplement
    Authentication of Documents

    In accordance with section 90, subsection 3 of Act No. 111/1998 Coll., on Higher Education Institutions, UCT Prague requires authentication of signatures and stamps on the documents. The authentication must be provided in the country where the documents have been issued!

    The authentication requirements differ according to the international treaties applying to the country where the original document was issued. The list of the countries and required authentication methods is to be found here.

    The authentication methods are: 

    1. B – Authentication is not required for documents issued in countries that are parties to a relevant international agreement abolishing the requirement of legalization for foreign public documents
    2. A as Apostille- For members of the Hague Convention the legalization proceeds by Apostille – a unified form of authentication of documents issued by the competent administrative body of the state in which the document was issued
    3. L as Legalization/super-legalization – Unless the international agreement sets otherwise, the authenticity of signatures and stamps on the document must be verified by two bodies:
      1. the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country, where the institution which issued the document is based
      2. respective representative office of the Czech Republic (e.g. Embassy / Consulate) in the country where the institution which issued the document is based

  5. If the Diploma and the Diploma Supplement are not issued in the English language, make a certified translation to the English or Czech language by a certified (court) translator
    (Note that some Embassies may require translation to the Czech language, we advise obtaining a translation to the Czech language.)

  6. Ask the certified translator to firmly attach the translation to the verified copy of the Diploma and the Diploma Supplement 

  7. Send a scan of the verified copy of the Diploma and the Diploma Supplement with the authentication (Apostille/Superlegalization) and with the translation to the Czech or English language to the email admissions@vscht.cz for confirmation whether they are correct

  8. Pay the fee of CZK 3.000,- in accordance with the section 90a of Act No. 111/1998 Coll., on Higher Education Institutions

APPLICANTS FOR RECOGNITION OF FOREIGN UNIVERSITY EDUCATION ONLY 

(No Studies at UCT Intended)

The Recognition of a Foreign Bachelor's or Master's Diploma can be processed by UCT Prague if the degree programme completed abroad has a similar curriculum as a degree programme accredited at UCT Prague. The syllabus of the UCT Prague study programmes is to be found here: https://akreditace.vscht.cz/.

If the curriculum differs, you are advised to inquire which other  (HEI) provides a study programme corresponding to your prior education in order to apply for the Recognition at that institution.

Fee: CZK 3.000,-
Validity: At all universities in the Czech Republic

Please note:
According to the administrative code, the applicant cannot require the recognition of the same higher education qualification from multiple public HEIs simultaneously. If the request is rejected by a university, the applicant can submit it to another HEI only after the rejection has become legally effective (i.e. after 15 days from receipt of the decision).

In case of doubts, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the CR appoint the respective university to assess the qualification or makes the decision itself. The Ministry acts as an appellate body for rejected applications.

HOW TO PROCEED?

Follow the same steps as stated in the section Applicants for Master/PhD Studies part C) A Document Proving General Recognition of Foreign Higher Education. 

Send the documents to the address: 

Mrs. Petra Linhartová
Department of Education and Human Sciences, Secretariat and Study Department, Records office
VŠCHT – University of Chemistry and Technology Prague   
Technická 5, 166 28 Prague 6 – Dejvice
Czech Republic

APPLICATION PROCESSING TIME

The deadlines for the proceedings are set by the general rules of administrative procedures, i.e. 30 days since the delivery. In complex cases, the deadline can be extended by 30 more days. An applicant will receive information on the result of the assessment via email.

More Information 

 If it is found during the recognition proceeding that it is not within the scope of the rector’s responsibility to make a decision on the request for recognition of foreign higher education, e.g. because UCT Prague does not provide a similar study programme, the fee is not charged, and, if already paid, will be returned to the applicant.

There is no refund of the fee if the recognition proceeding is discontinued due to a deficient application (absence of documents necessary for assessing the application), and the applicant’s failure to remove the deficiency upon request. 

There is no refund of the fee in case of rejection of the application due to substantial differences between the compared study programmes.

In case the purpose of the recognition is not further study, the equality of the education will be assessed in accordance with the Agreement – if substantial differences between the compared study programmes are found, the rector may reject the application.

APPEAL PROCEDURE

Applicants are entitled to submit an appeal within 15 days of receiving the decision. The appeal is submitted to the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic through the University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (or, in general terms, through the institution that has issued the decision). The university will either allow the appeal in full or passes it on to the Czech Ministry of Education no later than 30 days upon receipt of the appeal. The Ministry will then issue a final decision.
