About Us Information for students

The Czech system of higher education currently comprises 26 public institutions of higher education. Following the adoption of the Higher Education Act No. 111/1998, Coll., as last amended, public institutions of higher education in the Czech Republic enjoy a complete autonomy i.a. as regards the stipulation of conditions for admission to study. Prospective applicants for admission are advised to address their enquiries concerning the terms and conditions of enrolment and range of study options offered directly to the higher education institutions of their choice.

4. Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic, has established a “Student Program”, which allows applicants who have been accepted to the Czech state universities to file their applications for visa in an expedited manner. Appointments are facilitated within days, as the Embassy of the Czech Republic in New Delhi sets aside capacity for these applications. Similarly, the Ministry of Interior subsequently reviews applications filed through the “Student Program” speedily.

5. In order to take benefit of the “Student Programme”, students need to inform their respective university to enrol in this programme. The university will enrol the students in the “Student Programme” and the applicant will get an appointment from the Czech Embassy in New Delhi via email for further steps.

6. Students should directly approach the Czech universities for admission instead of applying through agents, reportedly acting on behalf of even some accredited universities. There have been cases where Indian students have been duped by agents.It is advised to avoid agencies/persons projecting themselves as agents of different universities and charging a huge amount for their services.

7. Admission fee may be deposited with the university/college only after your visa is ensured by the Czech Embassy for an appropriate duration. If some university/college insists for depositing admission/tuition fees before the Czech long-term visa is granted, certain prior assurance may be sought from the respective university/college for refund of fees, in casethe student is unable to join the studies due to unavoidable circumstances such as refusal of long-term visa by Czech Embassy.
