Undergraduate education is an education level taken in order to gain your first tertiary degree in our universities. Hence, in many subjects and many educational systems, undergraduate education is post-secondary education up to the level of a bachelor’s degree.
Many of us have considered university courses. Whether it's an undergraduate degree in a subject we're passionate about or a postgraduate qualification that we need to follow a certain career. University courses are interesting and it can be fun and life changing.
If you have successfully completed upper secondary studies in one of the signatory countries of the Lisbon Convention, are in possession of a valid school-leaving certificate and qualify for higher education studies in your home country, you also qualify for higher education studies in the Czech Republic. However, you are requested to prove your level of Czech language and/or English or other foreign language depending on the language of instruction of your course/study program. In some cases, you are also requested to take additional qualifying courses even pass admission tests.
For your admission application, the following documents are required:
• Curriculum Vitae
• Filled-in application form for the selected study program or course. This form can be usually downloaded from MDACI website or even fill-in electronically;
• An attested copy of your upper secondary school certificate and a copy of the results from the university entrance examinations in your home country;
• Medical Certificate – complete medical checkup (HIV-AIDS, others, etc.);
• Recommendation Letter;
• Police Criminal Report Sheet.
The goal of bachelor study is to prepare graduates for scientifically or artistically creative work. By attaining higher qualifications, including knowledge of foreign languages, Bachelor students will significantly increase their career opportunities.
Program and Duration
Our Bachelor study program in the Czech Republic is carried out through full-time and part-time forms of study. Full-time study at the Czech Universities generally takes 3 years, while part-time study generally takes 5 years, with the option of interrupting the studies. Transfer between part-time study and full-time study, or vice-versa, is possible on the basis of a recommendation by the Supervisor and a written statement from the doctorand to the Dean of the appropriate faculty or the Director of the institute. The Supervisor is appointed by the Dean or the Director of the institute. Supervisors are professors, associate professors (docents), or distinguished scholars. It is possible, with the agreement of the Supervisor and the appropriate Branch Board, to complete the study program in a shorter time.
Fulfillment of the coursework component of the individual plan is completed by passing the prescribed examinations and by presenting and defending a specialized study on the current state of the subject in the world. It is then possible to take the final degree examination, in which the student should demonstrate his/her specialized theoretical knowledge, methods of scientific work, and the ability to acquire new scientific knowledge and to apply it creatively. The final Bachelor examination is conducted by the Board of Examiners for Comprehensive Bachelor Examination (Komise pro státní doktorskou zkoušku). Successful completion of this examination is a pre-requisite for the presentation and defense of the bachelor thesis.
This thesis is the outcome of researching a specific scientific project, and can be submitted in the form of a work that has been published (or is being prepared for publication), or as a collection of publications. The bachelor thesis must contain original new findings. The presentation and defense of the work is conducted by the Board for the Defense of a Bachelor Thesis (Komise pro obhajobu dizertační práce), and is open to the public. A single re-submission is allowed in the case of an unsuccessful final examination or an unsuccessful presentation and defense of the bachelor thesis.
The Doctorate course fee is EUR22,525 per year. This fee includes the followings: Visa Fee, Air tickets, Medical test recertification, Health Insurance, Accommodation and Meals (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner), etc.
MDACI also cooperates with international organizations, government agencies and financial institutions on scholarship programs for their selected students to study in the Czech Republic and EU. A scholarship is awarded to all full-time doctoral students studying in the Czech language (both citizens of the Czech Republic and foreigners), to provide some financial support for the student while studying. This scholarship is payable for the standard length of the program (i.e., for three years). The scholarship consists of 3 parts:
• Mandatory component, the amount of which is set by the faculty, and which is paid monthly throughout the academic year;
• Mandatory component, which consists of the amount set for the accommodation, health insurance and meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), etc.…
• Non-mandatory component, which is awarded for outstanding study results, and during involvement in research teaching activities in the school workplace
Full-time doctorands studying at the Czech universities will be accommodated in a university or MDACI dormitory and are entitled to have their meals in university restaurants or at the dormitories.
