National Higher Education System

Grants & Loans

There are no grants or loans available from the local system

Application Process

There is no element of centralisation in the Czech system: you have to apply directly to the university of your choice, enclosing a dossier of documents, the contents of which varies from university to university. The admission requirements, processes and deadlines differ between institutions.

Some institutions, particularly in the Health Sciences subjects, require you to take an entrance exam.
