Students interested in studying in the Czech Republic can apply for admission to regular degree programs. If they are able to study in Czech (as the language of instruction), they may study under the same conditions as Czech students. Several Czech universities, however, also offer degree programs with English as the language of instruction.
The number of degree programs in English at Czech universities is still limited. Programs in English are offered more regularly in medicine and health sciences, engineering, sciences and business, but less often in social sciences, humanities or law. Programs in English are more common at the graduate level than at the undergraduate level. In contrast to the programs in Czech, these English programs may charge tuition fees.
To learn more about programs in English we recommend contacting Czech universities directly. A comprehensive catalogue of Czech higher educational institutions is available on the website Studyin.CZ.
The Erasmus Mundus Program is a co-operation and mobility program in the field of higher education that promotes the European Union as a centre of excellence in learning around the world. It supports European top-quality Master or Ph.D. courses and enhances the visibility and attractiveness of European higher education in non-EU countries.
The program also provides EU-funded scholarships for non-EU country nationals (including U.S. students) participating in these programs. Funding is available for European joint Masters and Doctorates. Czech universities participate in several of these programs.
More information about Erasmus Mundus and the complete list of programs with participation of Czech universities is available on the Studyin.CZ website.
Students who are able to study in Czech can select their course of study from the same wide range of programs as Czech students. Moreover, they will study under the same conditions as Czech students. It means that they do not pay any tution fees at public institutions; however, they must pass the same admission procedures and admission exams.
