Charles University courses – application and documents
Application deadlines for Charles University courses
The beginning of the preparatory courses of Charles University – in September, the submission of applications for admission to the chosen university – in February (with the exception of art specialties – applications are submitted there in November and entrance exams to the university are held in winter). From May to July, students take entrance exams to Czech universities. The entire period of study at the courses of the Czech Charles University lasts 10 months.
If you are interested in UK UJOP 2023/2024 Foundation Year Courses, you can apply from September 2022. The deadline for applications is May 15, 2023.
Note: Applications for UK UJOP courses received after this deadline will be considered on a case by case basis. In this case, the UK student must take into account that the registration process takes longer, and there is a risk that the start of the course will be missed (mainly due to waiting for a visa to the Czech Republic). In case of late arrival to the courses of Charles University, the missed time of studying in the Czech UK courses is not financially compensated.
