Students from Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary and Poland

The government of the Czech Republic has international agreements with the governments of SLOVAKIA, SLOVENIA, HUNGARY and POLAND that establish that the mutual recognition of academic qualifications is automatic, so there is no need for holders of bachelor diplomas from these countries to go through the recognition procedure.

Students from other countries

Holders of academic diplomas issued in other countries do have to apply for the recognition of their bachelor diploma or an equivalent of such for the purpose of further studies in the Czech Republic. For the recognition procedure at the SU SBA it is necessary to submit following documents:

  • Legally attested copy of a diploma or similar document about graduation (notary-certified)
  • Legally attested copy of a Diploma Supplement or list of completed exams (notary-certified).

If the documents attached to the application are not in Czech or English language, the applicant must enclose their certified translation into Czech or English language. The process of recognition of university education is called the "recognition of foreign higher education and qualification in the Czech Republic". Fill in the university form and apply for the recognition at Silesian University in Opava in paper form by post. Information on how to pay the recognition fee is listed here.
