Recognition of Foreign Diplomas and Degrees

Below you can find information concerning the official recognition/nostrification process which is a mandatory part of the Faculty's admission process. Without having finished the nostrification/recognition process, you cannot be enrolled in your studies if you have a foreign education certificate. You can start the process once you receive confirmation that you have been accepted to your chosen programme. During this process, please, take into consideration the aproximate length of each individual procedure.

To begin, you will need your MA diploma (together with the attachements you received, e.g. diploma transcript). You will not be using the original documents but verified copies of the original. Those copies should be certified either through an apostille (in case you are from one of the states that signed the Apostille convention) or super-legalization. Please, bear in mind that only copies in English or Czech language will be accepted for this process.

There are several ways how to get your diploma recognised:

  • Recognition by the Faculty

    This process is inteded for single use only and can be used for one admission process. The process takes up to 30 days and costs 880 CZK (approx. 37 EUR/40 USD).

    • Automatic Equivalency

      If you are a holder of a degree from Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, or Slovenia, your diploma is deemed automatically equivalent and does not have to undergo the process of recognition.

  • Nostrification

    Nostrification documents have life-long validity and can be used for any admission process. However, the process can take up to 3 months.

    Nostrification of high school diplomas costs 1,000 CZK (approx. 42 EUR/45 USD) while nostrification of higher education certificates costs 3,000 CZK (approx. 125 EUR/136 USD).
