Recognition of education

Recognition of Foreign Education at the Faculty of Economics and Administration

If you want to enroll in a degree program at any university in the Czech Republic, and your prior education was acquired in another country, it is necessary for you to have your prior degree/education formally recognized by Czech authorities. Recognition for purposes of study at our faculty must be done by so-called verification or nostrification.

Verification

Based on the new Directive No. 2/2019, the faculty verifies whether the submitted foreign educational documents entitle the applicant to enrol into degree programme he/she was admitted to. Therefore, the verification is valid only for the specific program you were admitted to within the specific admission term. The verification costs only 600 CZK (you can pay it here).

To ease the whole process for you, we have prepared a detailed manuals:

Nostrification

If the applicant wishes to utilize any education he/she has attained in the country of origin, it is necessary to have that education recognized by the Czech educational system.  One of the option of the recognition is nostrification. As a result, the applicant will obtain an official certificate, which enables him/her to enroll at any Czech university or which he/she might use for the purpose of employment.

For enrollment in Bachelor degree programs, the applicant will have to apply for the Recognition of Secondary School Education at an regional authority.

If the applicant wishes to enroll in a Master or Doctoral degree programs, he/she should browse this page and read the detailed information: Recognition of Foreign Higher Education and Qualifications.

The nostrification process costs 3000 CZK and, contrary to verification, it is valid without any limitation. It is managed by the Rector’s Office of Masaryk University.
