Admission requirements for the master’s study programmes
The admissions procedure starts with a submission of a properly completed application for study and payment of the application fee by 29 February 2024.
Completion of at least a bachelor’s university degree with a proof provided by 30 September 2024. Applicants who pass the final exam in the autumn term and the applicants who have to wait for a recognition of their studies abroad have to present a document about their bachelor’s degree by 22 October 2024. The applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree from a Czech university have to provide a registered copy of a diploma or an original copy of a proof that they have obtained a bachelor’s degree (in case they still do not have their official diploma). This requirement does not apply to the applicants who have obtained their bachelor’s degree at Charles University.
The applicants who hold a degree from a university abroad have to provide a proof of their education in one of the ways described at this website.
Pass the admission exam (if the exam is not waived).
The entrance examination is a two-round examination.
All applicants who obtain at least 50 points out of 100 in the entrance examination will be admitted to study. The points from both rounds are added together.
Round 1: (max. 40 points)
Assessment of applicants on the basis of the annexes submitted:
CV (10 points),
transcript of marks (10 points),
motivation letter (20 points).
To qualify for the second round, applicants must obtain at least 25 points.
Round 2: (max. 60 points)
Online interview with the successful candidates on the subject of the chosen study programme (max. 60 points).
In case there are only few applicants, the dean can, with the approval of the section subject-area board, waive the admission exam and accept all the applicants who hold the degree required.
The application for study and the application fee
The application is submitted electronically via the study information system (SIS) of Charles University. The application needs to be submitted electronically by 29 February 2024 (no hard copy is sent). The e-mail and password used for the submission of the application stay the same throughout the whole admission procedure.
It is necessary to submit one application for each study programme.
The master programmes in didactics for secondary schools are offered in fixed combinations of two fields: a maior programme (listed first) and a minor programme. The students are expected to write their thesis in the field of the maior programme. An exception to this rule (i.e. writing a thesis in the field of the minor programme) has to be approved by a dean after a student’s application for such a change.
For the programmes in Social epidemiology, Global migration and development studies and Geology, the applicants are required to submit a motivation letter together with their application.
The admission fee is 880 CZK and it is paid for each application submitted. The fee must be paid by 29 February 2024.
Waiving of the admission exam
Viewing of a personal file
After notification of the dean’s decision regarding the outcome of the admission process, the applicant is entitled to view his/her file. The administrative and organizational conditions for viewing are determined by a dean’s measure.
Choosing a specialization for a study programme
Specialization is chosen by students when registering for the first year of their studies.
