Prior Degrees

Establishing the equivalence of your bachelor’s (or master’s) prior degree

The procedure of prior degree recognition is called an Recognition of Foreign Higher Education and Qualifications, commonly known as nostrifikace in Czech, and you obtain an official certificate at the end, which enables you to enroll at any Czech university. The Czech Republic has signed a number of international agreements, so for some countries, there is a simplified procedure, or at least you do not need to submit legalized or apostilled copies.

Please read the detailed information  In our Faculty website Admission Section. It gives all details, links, and also pre-arrival calendar.

If your degree was completed in CR or Slovakia, at enrollment, you submit a notary certified copy of your diploma.
If it was completed in Germany, Slovenia, Poland or Hungary, follow the respective link from the above mentioned website and read the section about Enrollment at MU; you will need to arrange the confirmation of your prior education.
If you have a prior degree from other country than the above mentioned, then follow the general procedure. Submit your DR request to a universDiploma -272x 300ity in CR that offers similar degree programs as was your prior study.

If you have to follow the general procedure, please start asap. The procedure may take up to 2 months. A fee is charged since September 2016.

In case you decided to do the DR procedure at MU, then contact the Rectorate colleagues in charge of this procedure (full contacts are on the detailed website).

Please note. Degree Recognition is only needed by students wishing to register at a Czech university for an entire degree program, but not by visiting or exchange students. We strongly recommend that all degree applicants submit the Degree Recognition together with the application (if possible) or start working on their recognition at the same time as they apply for admission to our degree programs.
