Study at USB
You need to provide your secondary school-leaving examination certificate (or similar proof of achieving secondary education including a school-leaving examination), or a higher education degree certificate (if you already graduated from a higher education institution in the Czech Republic) that indicates that you have achieved secondary education including a school-leaving examination.
You need to provide your bachelor’s degree certificate or another higher education degree certificate (if you already graduated from a master’s or doctoral programme at a higher education institution in the Czech Republic).
You need to provide your master’s degree certificate or another doctoral degree certificate (if you already graduated from another doctoral programme at a higher education institution in the Czech Republic).
Let the faculty know. If you request it in writing, we can find your degree certificate in the USB records and you do not need to provide it.
All you need to do is to notify us about it in writing and you need to prove your education only once. However, you need to notify all faculties to which you are applying, so that we know to which faculty you are going to provide a proof of your education. Faculties will share the documents even if you are applying to more than one faculty.
Do not forget to provide a document concerning a change of name if applicable (e.g., marriage certificate if there is your maiden name on the diploma/certificate), power of attorney (if the matter of providing documents concerning prior education is handled by somebody else) or the decision on granting international protection (if you are substituting documents by an affidavit).
We are an institutionally accredited university. Therefore, we are able to assess your prior education during admission even without official recognition of equivalence of foreign degrees and studies.
If you studied at a foreign, international or European secondary school, the following will suffice:
If you studied at a higher education institution abroad, the following will suffice:
If you have an officially recognised certificate or diploma available, naturally, you can provide a document concerning general recognition of equivalence of foreign secondary or higher education in the Czech Republic.
What kind of verification is acceptable when providing foreign documents concerning education?
That depends on the country where you obtained the education:

Caution! The proof of prior education (and application for admission) may not be the only condition for admission or the only material that is required. Always read the full requirements of the admission procedure for the degree programme that you are applying for.
