Recognition of previous study (so called NOSTRIFICATION) is an obligatory condition required by the Ministry of Education of the Czech Republic for students who apply for degree programmes. The recognition is provided by the official authorities.
We cannot give you the admission without the recognition of your previous education.
You can do this by yourself (at the Czech Ministry of Education), hire a company (search the Internet) to do it for you or we can provide an assistence with the process.
The cost of the nostrification (if we provide the assistence) is 4000 CZK this includes: translation of your documents, notary confirmation, nostrification fee, administrative fee.
NOTE: You must be at least 18 at the year of your graduation to pass the nostrification. If you were 17, you will be ordered to do nostrification exams for which you have to be present in the Czech Republic (from some countries, you will not be able to get visa for it). Also students who come from countries that have 11 years of school before entering university will also have to pass nostrification exams.
If we provide an assistence, applicants must submit the following documents:

There are three types of authentication of your documents divided by the countries where the education has been achieved and where the university diploma has been issued:
Please, see the list of countries including the types of authentication.
Please, be aware that delivered documents will not be returned to you after a nostrification process so please, submit officially authenticated copies not original documents.
Please, be aware that the International Relations Office (IRO) is not responsible for the received documents. The nostrification office is the institution to check the documents and inform us whether something is missing.
