The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a tool of the European Higher Education Area designed by the European Commission for making studies and courses more transparent. It provides common procedures to guarantee the full transferability of credits from university studies abroad in order to calculate 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.

 

"Ensuring your Degree and Transcripts are Transferable across Europe"

 

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). 

Students who have successfully completed study programmes may continue their studies abroad with no administrative difficulties because their learning achievements (credits) can be easily recognized by other educational institutions.

 

Diploma Supplement Label ◳ ds (jpg) → (výška 215px)

UCT Prague automatically provides all graduates with a Diploma Supplement. The Diploma Supplement follows the model developed by the European Commission, the Council of Europe, and UNESCO/CEPES. 

The purpose of the supplement is to provide sufficient independent data for improving international transparency and for ensuring fair, academic, and professional recognition of qualifications (diplomas, degrees, certificates, etc.).

The Diploma Supplement is published in two languages – Czech and English – and contains the status of successfully completed studies, the list of courses evaluated according to the ECTS, and the number of credits awarded for each course.

The Supplement also includes information about courses completed abroad, Bachelor or Master theses, defense of the theses, final state examinations, and the overall evaluation of study results.

The Diploma Supplement also provides a brief description of the Czech Higher Educational System.

Diploma Supplement Samples

 

ECTS Credit Allocation 

ECTS credits represent the workload needed in order to achieve expected learning outcomes. 

Courses are assigned a number of credits depending on the workload students have to fulfill in order to successfully pass the subject.

The workload indicates the time students usually need to complete all learning activities, such as lectures, seminars, projects, practical work, self-study, and examinations. 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 semester. The semester usually takes 14 weeks. At UCT Prague 60 credits represent the workload required for one year’s full-time study or 30 credits per semester. All students are graded A – F scale according to the Local Grade Scheme.

Bachelor's and Master's study degrees are realized through hundreds of fields of study. Some of them can be combined with other study fields (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).

    The Recognition of Foreign Education is a process of verifying that the education level which you have completed abroad is equal to the education level required for studying at a university in the Czech Republic.

    The Recognition of Foreign Education is an indispensable requirement for admission to the studies at UCT Prague.

    Contact details:
    Applicants for a study at UCT Prague please contact admissions@vscht.cz (Chemical Programmes) or business.admission@vscht.cz  (School of Business) for guidance if needed.

     

    Explanatory notes:

    • Verified (notary-certified / true) copy = An official certified copy identical to the original. It is verified by a notary or by an official authority in your country and confirmed with an official stamp.

      In the Czech Republic, the verified copies are issued by a notary (the notary makes an official copy of a document and then stamps it, which proves the authenticity of the document).

      Please learn what the process is like in your country. UCT Prague needs to receive official true copies of the Diploma and Transcripts of Records which are exactly the same as the originals.

      These true copies should be also firmly attached to a translation to English/Czech (if the document isn’t issued in English), and they should be also firmly attached to an Apostille/Superlegalization clause (issued by an authority in your country and/or a Czech embassy).

     

    • Authentication: Apostille / Superlegalization = Apostille or Superlegalization is a process of verification that the signatures and stamps on the document are genuine. This process is a mandatory requirement in case of certain countries, and the documents are incomplete without this verification.

     

    Why is a verified copy required? UCT Prague must keep the documents archived for 45 years; therefore, if you send us an original document, we cannot return it back to you. Do not provide the originals of your documents to anyone as you may need them for other matters during your life. 

     

     

    A Short Overview of the Process

    You can submit the online application without uploading a Certificate of Recognition, however, when filling in the online application, must choose a method of recognition based on where your Diploma / Graduation Certificate and Transcript of Records have been issued & if, in the Czech Republic, you intend to apply only to our university or to another higher education institution as well. 

    In the online application you will find these options: 

      1. A Document Deemed Automatically Equivalent Without Any Further Administrative Procedure = choose this option if your Certificate / Diploma has been issued in Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, or Slovenia
      2.  A Document Proving the Awarding of a European Baccalaureate = choose this option if you have received a European Baccalaureate diploma
      3.  A Foreign Document Concerning a Foreign Education = choose this option if you haven't got a Nostrification/Recognition certificate yet.
        If you choose this option, the Certificate of Recognition of Previous Foreign Education will be issued by UCT Prague as a part of the admission process. The certificate issued by UCT Prague is valid only in UCT Prague, it cannot be used when applying to other Czech universities. 
        You will be guided by the admission officer on how to proceed.
      4. A Document Proving General Recognition = choose this option if 1) you have gone through the process of Nostrification/Recognition, and you have already received an official Certificate of Nostrification from Prague City Hall, OR a Certificate of Recognition of Foreign Education from another educational institution in the Czech Republic, OR 2) if you have already started working on it

     

    If you are unsure which option to choose, choose "A Foreign Document Concerning a Foreign Education" and the recognition of previous education will be processed at UCT Prague.

     

     

    Timeline

    Admissions are open

    When sending the application, you need to choose the method of recognition.

    All selected applicants regardless of country of origin must provide a verified (true) copy of the Diploma/Graduation certificate and the Transcript of Records.

    If your Diploma/Graduation certificate is NOT a European Baccalaureate and if it WASN'T issued in Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, or Slovenia, you must choose either option "A Foreign Document Concerning a Foreign Secondary Education" OR "A Document Proving General Recognition..."

     

    In such a case, get familiar with the process of 1) arranging a verified (true) copy of the Diploma/Graduation certificate and the Transcript of Records and 2) arranging an Apostille/Superlegalization, and 3) translation (if not issued in English) in your country. (In some countries, this process takes 6–10 weeks!)

     

    If you choose the option "A Foreign Document Concerning a Foreign Education", the process of recognition will be processed at UCT Prague – the Recognition Certificate issued within this process is valid only at UCT Prague.

     

    If you choose the option "A Document Proving General Recognition..." and you are applying to Bachelor's degree studies, the process will be carried out by Prague City Hall. If you are applying to Master's degree studies, the process can be processed at UCT Prague or by any other educational institution in the Czech Republic – the Recognition Certificate is then valid also at other educational institutions in the Czech Republic. Choose this option also if you have already undergone this process in the past and if you already possess a Recognition Certificate.

    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.

    From now on, this will be your number one go-to university web page, and this guide is here to introduce you to it.

This means that, when the semester is approaching, at some point (1-2 weeks prior) when you go to the SIS section SCHEDULING, you will see the first draft of your schedule. (And you do not have to do anything.)

    But 2 things are missing – elective course (if applicable) and physical education.

    A few weeks before the beginning of a new semester you will see some changes on SIS front page. Everything you need to know about enrolling in courses is there, especially dates when the gates for enrollment open and the deadline when the enrollment ends.

    We suggest you deal with enrollment as soon as possible. Check your study plan and the list of physical education courses in advance, so you know what to choose and just be ready. On the front page of SIS, in the attached documents, there should be a guide through this process as well, however, it is easy. Everything happens in the section SUBJECTS AND SCHEDULE REGISTRATION.

    Go to the tab Enrollment (study plan) and you will see your compulsory courses, the list of elective courses, and physical education as well. Just click on a little circle next to the course code and click enroll.

    Elective courses usually also have a Preliminary enrollment that takes place at the end of the previous semester. You will be informed in advance by the dean’s office.

     

    TIP: CHECK if all of your subjects are shown in your schedule.

    If not, there might be some sort of mistake. In case of trouble, contact your dean’s office.

    Sending an online inquiry is always a safe and sound way to ask someone, what to do. Visiting the person’s office is an option too, just please always remember to be polite and look up the opening hours first.

    • It is good to have a clear image of your study plan. Know what you need to complete this semester, and what will be happening the next. ALWAYS STAY IN THE PICTURE.
    • All study plans are available online – visit the web page of your faculty and find your course.
    • Find yourself a time to go through SIS. You can look everywhere, and try to find courses and schedules. And if you are still not sure, just ask a classmate or a tutor. After a while, it will not seem so scary anymore.
    • For the most important events, you will always get an online invitation to your school email. Please learn to check it frequently. And if you are not sure, checking your faculty website might help too.

     

    Personal Details & Bank Account

    Please check, that all of your personal details are up-to-date.

    In case of any changes, you are required to update them. If you need to change or add anything, go to SIS section PERSONAL DATA – tab Data change – edit whatever you need, and press save.

    Adding your bank account is important in case you plan to apply for a scholarship based on good study results. You can apply for this scholarship with grades 1-1,8 starting from the second semester of your studies.

     

    Tuition Fee Payment 

    In the section SCHOLARSHIP and FEES – tab Fees – you can find information for tuition fee payment. 

    It is possible to pay by scanning a QR code or by online card payment. It is also possible to send the money via a bank transfer. 

    The tuition fee is paid for the whole academic year. Upon a request submitted to the dean's office, the Dean may decide to allow splitting the amount into a few installments. Contact your dean's office should you need more information.

     

    EXAMS

    Please see below the 4 “types” of examination that you must pass to successfully move to the next semester. The examination type is mostly connected to the complexity of a subject.

    Cr+ZKCourse-credit + Exam – Mostly the hardest subjects – This is a two-level exam. First of all, during the semester,  you will be handing in some homework or assessments or writing one or more course-credit tests. You have to fulfill all duties/pass the tests, and your professor then marks a course-credit (Cr) as passed in SIS.
    At this point, you should check it in the SIS section SUMMARY OF EXAMINATION RESULTS. If you cannot see the mark there, contact your professor. Without this Cr in SIS, you won’t be allowed to attend the Exam (ZK).

    ZK Exam – In this case you don’t have to think about anything during the semester, all you need to do is to pass the exam in the examination period.

    KZ Marked course-credit – This means that there is no Exam in the examination period. You usually finish this subject at the end of the semester. It is similar to the course-credit, however, you get a grade for your assessments or tests.

    Cr Course-credit – Credit-course simply means that you complied with requirements of the subject during the semester (typically just attendance). There is no exam and you get no grade.

    If you feel a bit lost, don’t worry. Your professor will explain all of the requirements for that specific subject in your first lecture.

     EXAM PERIOD

    Students typically have to fulfill about 5 exams per semester. Some of them may be just a test, others just oral but the most important, and hardest subjects often include both, written and oral parts. In that case, you have to pass a test first to get Cr to be admitted to the final oral exam. 

    Professors will inform you about the exam type and requirements in advance so you can properly prepare. 

    How it works with exams:

    • You schedule the exams yourself. It is up to you in which order you fulfill your duties but your goal is to fulfill them all.
    • Your professors will insert dates for exams in SIS section EXAMINATION TERMS – tab Register
    • You should be able to see the dates, times, and lecture rooms where the exam takes place.
    • Registering for the term is similar to enrolling in courses. You pick any date you like (if it's not full of course) and press "Register" at the bottom.
    • Now you should be able to see the registered exam in the section EXAMINATION TERMS – tab My dates.
    • If you need to change a term after you registered, it's not a problem. You can change it in SIS, however, there is usually a deadline (hours before the exam) and after that, you cannot change the date of the exam anymore. If you don’t attend the exam, you lose the attempt and your professor will mark it as F (Fail) in SIS.


      TIPS FROM OTHER STUDENTS:

      • Don’t waste your time! The exam period is usually around 5 weeks long (the spring exam period is a bit longer) so that means 5 exams for 5 weeks.
      • You have 3 attempts for each exam in one examination period and you can enroll in the same course 3 times throughout the whole studies. This may sound helpful but there is a catch! The fact that you have 3 attempts for the exam tempts our professors to make them harder. They don’t want us all to easily pass on the first attempt, and they know that a lot of people will come to the first attempt just to look at the test, and to know what to expect when they come, better prepared, next time. We don’t recommend these tactics but it does work for some people. The most important message here is: Don’t collapse when you fail on your first attempt. It is just the way it works around here, it happens to many people and it is actually good to have this experience. Believe it or not, it will make you stronger. And the second thing: Think about your possible failures when you plan your exams. Not everything might go just as you’d wish it.
      • To be able to enroll to the next semester you need to have at least 15 credits from the previous semester!
      • To be able to enroll and go forward to next year, the maximum amount of allowed missing credits altogether is 15!
      • Don’t postpone the hardest exams! You need those the most. Your study program is like a chain. The biggest and hardest courses usually have prerequisites (requirements of fulfilled previous courses) – For example: If you are starting your first semester you probably have General and Inorganic Chemistry. A big, compulsory course worth many credits. It is desirable to pass this subject when you are supposed to (first semester), because it is one of the prerequisites for Inorganic Laboratories in the second semester (again very important course).

      What could happen?

      Let’s say you were not able to pass the General and Inorganic Chemistry course: You don’t have the course-credit and grades in SIS. The SIS will NOT allow you to enroll in Inorganic Laboratories thus the whole chain gets shifted and you might end up prolonging your studies.

      Why? Because Inorganic Laboratories are strictly a Spring semester course. So even if you fulfilled General and Inorganic Chemistry with a little delay in the following Spring semester, you have to wait till next year for Inorganic Laboratories. And that’s not the end of issues.

      Inorganic Laboratories are a prerequisite for following Organic Laboratories so as said the chain, which is fixed and specifically prepared for your study plan, gets shifted and it's not easy to get back on track.

      If you were in such a situation – you didn’t pass General and Inorganic Chemistry, the exam period is over, but you have enough credits to continue your studies. The dean’s office will automatically register you for the subject that you failed and you will be able to see it again in your new schedule.

      There is one more chance for you to “save yourself “. Your professor will probably insert a few dates for an early exam at the beginning of the semester. That means you might still have a chance to pass both: the General and Inorganic Chemistry and the Inorganic Laboratories in one semester and get yourself out of trouble.  However, it is not advisable to get into such a situation at all. Studying at UCT Prague is not easy, the first year especially.

      This is only an example, there are other courses with similar complications!


      What to do at the end of the exam period

      When you successfully passed all exams (or you have no more attempts for those you failed), and if you gained all required course-credits at the end of the examination period, go to SUMMARY OF EXAMINATIONS RESULTS – tab Validations and request validation of your results for the current semester.

      Once you send the request you should see a report.

      And you are finished. You can rest, relax, party, sleep, regain energy, await a new semester or enjoy summer, and most importantly get yourself back together because the show must go on.

      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.

      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...

      EU Nationals

      Registration of European Health Insurance Card 

       

      Who EU nationals & holders of EHIC (blue health insurance card)
      What to do Register your EHIC with a Czech health insurance company VZP
      Why

      You will be assigned a so-called “health insurance number”

      and the coverage of expenses for your medical treatments can be extended

      How Visit the health insurance company in your home country & visit VZP in Czechia

       

      If you are a European Union national and a holder of the blue European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), we strongly advise you to register your health insurance card with a Czech health insurance company VZP (Všeobecná zdravotní pojišťovna).

      It is recommended to do this as soon as possible after arrival and not wait until you are not feeling well.
      Registration can be done online. See the guideline and download the registration form.

       

      MEDICALLY NECESSARY HEALTHCARE

      Having a blue European health insurance card entitles you to medically necessary healthcare in the Czech Republic. Make sure to have the EHIC with you all the time.

      After arrival to the Czech Republic, you can register your EHIC with a Czech health insurance company.
      It is advised to go with VZP (Všeobecná zdravotní pojišťovna) as this state health insurance company cooperates with almost all doctors in the Czech Republic which means that the medically necessary expenses of your medical treatment shall be covered without any issue.

      Registering your EHIC in the Czech Republic will make it easier for the insurance company to bill your medical expenses to the health insurance company in your home country. You will also be assigned a “health insurance number” which will make it easier for doctors to look up your medical files.

      You will receive an insurance card stating “Lékařsky nezbytná péče” = medical necessary healthcare:

        ◳ Card_Lekarsky nezbytna pece (jpg) → (šířka 215px)

      Note that treatments exceeding the necessary medical health care will be billed separately and may be very expensive!

       

      FULL HEALTHCARE

      It is also possible to register for full healthcare. In such a case you have to visit a branch of your health insurance company in your home country and fill in the so-called S1 Form. In some countries, your health insurance company will do the process online and send the form automatically to the Czech Republic, in some other countries, you will be given a hard copy of the form to submit in person in the Czech Republic.

      Once you arrive in the Czech Republic, visit a branch of VZP health insurance company. You will be assigned a “health insurance number”, and you will receive an insurance card stating that you are entitled to “Plná péče” = full health care.

       ◳ Card_Plna pece (jpg) → (šířka 215px)

      Then when visiting a doctor, take both your EHIC and the yellow insurance card with you.

      Don’t forget to bring your passport with you when visiting the branch of VZP.

      Students from Turkey

      Students from Turkey need to take to the Czech health insurance company office the paper they have received from their health insurance provider in Turkey and register it as well.

       

       

      Non-EU Nationals


      Students from most non-EU countries must submit proof of travel medical insurance as a part of their visa application to the respective Czech Embassy/Consulate.

      • The health insurance must cover the entire stay in the Czech Republic
      • The health insurance benefit limit for one insurance event must be at least EUR 60 000, that being without insurance retention on the amount of the given costs
      • The insurance policy must not exclude coverage for injuries and damage caused by the applicant's intentional acts, injuries and damage caused by the fault or contributory fault on the part of the applicant, and injuries and damage caused by the consumption of alcohol, narcotics, and psychotropic substances by the applicant

      Please visit the website of the Ministry of Interior of the Czech Republic to learn the requirements of travel medical insurance.  

       

      As a result of being parties to the International Treaty on Cooperation in the Area of Health and Social Security, medical travel insurance is not required from citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Cuba, Japan, Macedonia, Montenegro, Turkey, and Serbia. The same exception applies to participants of the Erasmus Mundus program, Fulbright scholarship program, European Voluntary Service of the EC Youth in Action programme, as well as holders of the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) issued by another EU member state and a GHIC card issued by the UK.

        Note that the costs of the travel medical insurance valid for a year may be around 800 EUR.

        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 Czech Republic?

        It was an amazing experience. Study abroad is completely different from studying in your own country...

        Both, the EU as well as NonEU nationals have certain obligations when entering the Czech Republic. Please make sure to fulfill all obligations in order to ensure a legal stay in the Czech Republic. 

         

        EU Nationals

        European Union nationals aren't obliged to obtain a visa for the purpose of studying in the Czech Republic. However, they can voluntarily apply for a Temporary Permit if they wish to. 

        If staying in private accommodation, EU nationals must register themselves at the Foreign Police within 30 working days after their arrival. Not fulfilling this lawful requirement can lead to a fine of 3000 CZK (120 EUR).

        If you are staying in the dormitories,  the dormitories will do the registration automatically for you.

         

        Non-EU Nationals

        Long-term Visa or Residence Permit Applying

        Non-EU nationals must apply for a long-term visa OR a long-term residence card for the purpose of studying in the Czech Republic. It is up to your consideration which type of permit you choose, however, bear in mind that there are specific obligations connected to each type, especially after your arrival to the Czech Republic.  

        An application can be submitted at a Czech embassy abroad. You are obliged to submit the application only at the Czech Embassy in the state of which you are a citizen or which issued your current travel document, or in the state in which you have a long-term or permanent residence permit. You do not have to meet these conditions if you are a citizen of a state presented in the list of countries whose nationals are entitled to apply for a long-term visa at any Czech Embassy whatsoever.

         

        HOW TO PROCEED?

        1. Decide which type of permit you want to apply for: a long-term visa or a long-term residence card
        2. Read information on the website of the Czech Ministry of Interior and start gathering the required documents 
        3. BSc and MSc students: Fill in this form to provide the admission officer with the necessary information for delivery of the Acceptance Letter and Accommodation Confirmation
          PhD students: Contact your supervisor
        4. UCT Prague will send you Acceptance Letter and Accommodation Confirmation by DHL
        5. Sign Accommodation Confirmation received from UCT
        6. Download an official application form for a long-term visa or a long-term residence card and fill it in
        7. Schedule an appointment at a respective Czech embassy for your country / Inform UCT that you wish to be nominated for a visa facilitation project Režim student
        8. Double-check that you possess all documents required at the Czech embassy 
        9. Attend the appointment at the Czech embassy and submit a visa/residence card application and the required documents & pay the visa application fee 
        10. Provide proof of medical travel insurance to the Czech embassy and collect the visa 
        11. Arrive in the Czech Republic
        12. If you applied for the long-term residence card, visit the Ministry of Interior within 3 working days of your arrival to report your arrival, and to schedule a collection of your residence card

         

        IMPORTANT! 

        An appointment at the respective embassy must be scheduled in order to apply for a long-term visa or long-term residence card. The appointment can be either scheduled by the applicant himself/herself OR applicants from specific countries can apply for an appointment at the Czech Embassy through a governmental project for visa facilitation called Režim Student (Student Mode)

        Note that it is more than recommended to arrange a visa appointment at the respective embassy in May at the very latest. The academic year starts in September, and visa approval takes 60–120 days

        Especially applicants from India, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Ghana, Sri Lanka, Bhútán, Chad, Cameroon, Maldives, and Nepal, should apply for the visa AS SOON AS POSSIBLE once they receive the Acceptance Letter and the Accommodation Confirmation. The competition at the embassies in Abuja (Nigeria), Accra (Ghana), and New Delhi (India) is enormous, and the appointment slots are very limited!

         

        WHICH COUNTRY ARE YOU A CITIZEN OF?

        If you find your country on this list, contact the admission officer, UCT can nominate you for the governmental project for visa facilitation called Režim Student (Student Mode), which means that you might get a date of the appointment at the embassy sooner than when applying for the appointment yourself. 

         

        REŽIM STUDENT – What it is and how it works (Click to open)

        Režim Student (Student Mode) is a governmental project designed to facilitate the visa procedure for selected students.  

        Universities can nominate students from specific countries. The nomination is submitted to the Czech Ministry of Education which decides whether the nomination will be accepted. If a nomination is accepted, the student is then contacted by the respective Czech embassy regarding the date of an appointment for visa/residence card application submission.

        The nominations can be sent only on specific dates announced by the Ministry of Education.

         

        When nominating a student, the university must submit the following documents: 

        • Diploma/Graduation certificate and the Transcript of Records
        • Acceptance Letter
        • Certificate of Nostrification / Recognition Certificate / Confirmation of Accreditation of a Study Programme that you graduated from issued by your school / IAU number of the university 

         

        The Ministry of Education has 3–5 working days to process the nominations and based on certain criteria choose, which nominations are accepted.

        If the nomination is accepted, then the Embassy assigns an appointment for the student – the appointment is usually assigned within 1–4 weeks. If the application for the visa/residence card is complete and alright, the embassy sends all documents to the Czech Ministry of Interior, and the Ministry of Interior then has 60 days to approve the application. If the application is approved, the Ministry of Interior contacts the embassy, and the embassy contacts you to schedule an appointment for visa collection.  

        Universities can nominate students for the project only on these dates: 

        17. 2. 17. 3. 21. 4. 26. 5. 23. 6. 21. 7. 18. 8. 22. 9. 20. 10. 24. 11.
        3. 3. 30. 3. 12. 5. 9. 6. 7. 7. 4. 8. 8. 9. 6. 10. 10. 11. 8. 12.

         

        Because the approval process may take up to 60 days, and the Enrollment Day of Bachelor's and Master's degree students takes place in the first week of September, it is highly recommended to nominate a student on June 9 at the latest so that the visa is issued on time.

         

        Students, who applied for a long-term visa, get a visa sticker with a validity of 365 days (usually) and MULTI entries to the Czech Republic. 

        Students, who applied for a long-term residence card, get a visa sticker that authorizes them to enter the Czech Republic (SINGLE entry, authorized stay up to a maximum of 60 days). They must visit the Czech Ministry of Interior within 3 working days after their arrival to report their arrival and provide biometrical data (which means that the Ministry of Interior will take a photo of you and also scan your fingerprints in order to issue a residence permit card). After this procedure, the student is provided with a date of collection of the residence permit card (which may have a validity of 1–2 years). 

         

         

        NOTE

        APPOINTMENT AT THE EMBASSY

        Make sure to arrive at the appointment at the Embassy on time! Not arriving at the appointment at all or being late will result in postponing the process of obtaining the visa. In some cases, you may not be given another time slot to visit the Embassy which will result in the impossibility to arrive in the Czech Republic for the Enrollment day and your non-acceptance to the studies!

         

        HEALTH INSURANCE

        As a result of being parties to the International Treaty on Cooperation in the Area of Health and Social Security, medical travel insurance is not required from citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Cuba, Japan, Macedonia, Montenegro, Turkey, and Serbia. The same exception applies to participants of the Erasmus Mundus program, Fulbright scholarship program, European Voluntary Service of the EC Youth in Action programme, as well as holders of the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) issued by another EU member state and a GHIC card issued by the UK.

         

         COMMUNICATION WITH THE EMBASSY

        Kindly note that UCT Prague cannot legally help you with the visa appointment at the embassies, this is a responsibility of yours. You are also responsible for collecting all the required documents.

        Please check the embassy website and follow their instructions and requirements. Note that the requirements vary from country to country, make sure to have the correct information related to your citizenship.

         Please bear in mind that the UCT Prague cannot communicate with the embassy or Ministry of Interior on your behalf. Information about your visa status is confidential and cannot be provided to the UCT Prague. We understand that it might be stressful to wait for the embassy to contact you, however, note that during the summer, embassies are extremely busy. Once the visa is ready to be collected, you will be contacted.

         UCT Prague does not provide any assistance or invitation letter for your friends/partners/family members. In such a case, you shall follow the instructions on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic and the respective embassy of the Czech Republic.

        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.
