Nostrification Process - Recognition of foreign education qualifications
In order to be accepted on study programmes at Bachelor's, Master's, or doctoral level you need to provide proof of your previous educational qualifications, for example, depending on the study programme you are applying for, a secondary school leaving certificate, a Bachelor’s degree, or a Master’s degree.
If your qualification has not been issued by a Czech educational establishment, but by an educational establishment in another country, then you need to get it officially recognised by the Czech authorities. This process is known as "nostrification".
There are different kinds of nostrification procedure, depending on why you need your diploma recognised.
This recognition is valid only for the purposes of the admission procedure at Charles University.
IMPORTANT: Please make sure that the faculty receives full amount of the payment. Fees for international transfer shall be paid by the sender.
