  • Assessment as to whether you have completed prior education abroad for the purpose of admission procedure at Palacký University Olomouc

This simplified procedure may only be used for the purposes of admission procedure at Palacký University in the respective academic year (and does not apply to admission procedure at other higher education institutions or when applying for a job).
    Both the secondary education and the higher education is assessed by Palacký University.
     
  • Recognition proceedings, which is a lenghtier procedure to recognize foreign education (or a part thereof) and qualification as equivalent to education obtained in the Czech Republic. The Recognition Certificate may also be used in admission proceeding at other higher education institutions or when applying for a job.
    Foreign secondary education is assessed by regional authorities.
    Foreign higher education is assessed by Czech universities which offer the same or similar programme of study to the programme that you completed abroad.
    See detailed information on the recognition procedure.
     
  • If you have completed your prior education in Hungary, Germany, Poland, Slovakia or Slovenia or hold European Baccalaureate (secondary school graduates), your certificates are equivalent under international treaties and no additional procedure is required.
