We ask applicants for nostrification to send their applications by post or leave them at “Podatelna” (filing room on the ground floor of the Rector's Office building).  Thank you for your understanding.

In order not to lengthen your nostrification process please doublecheck:

  1. that your application is filled in on the computer
  2. that you submit all mandatory documents – well authenticated (roll down) and translated (if needed)
  3. that you submit also plain copies of all documents


Public universities principally decide on the recognition of foreign university education (private schools do not have this authorization), in a specific case a public university which implements an accredited study programme with similar content. In the event of doubts about the existence of a similar study programme, the competence of the university is determined by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, or it can decide on the recognition on its own. You cannot apply for nostrification at CZU if you do not have at least a bachelor's degree.

The applicants must pay an administrative fee amounting to 3 000 CZK. Possible bank charges are always paid by the applicant. Please make sure CZU receive an accurate amount! You will receive payment details and confirmation of receipt of the nostrification request by email. Please wait for until you are prompted for payments.

Information about individual contracts/agreements on mutual validation of equivalence of documents on education and documents on scientific titles and degrees can be found here.

The Rector of CZU in Prague will decide on the validation of foreign university education by the deadline set out by a general regulation on administrative proceedings, which is 30 days from submission, and within 60 days in more complicated cases.
