Information on the Admission Procedure
Bachelor’s Entry Requirements
The goal of the admissions review process is to select from the pool of applicants those individuals who have shown the capability and diligence expected of Charles University students. To apply for the Bachelor of Computer Science programme given in English you must:
- hold or be working towards a High School Leaving Certificate (Diploma) or its equivalent; in cases required by law, certification of equivalence of education must accompany the application,
- meet the Reasoning Requirements, and
- provide sufficient proof of English Language Proficiency.
To submit your scores electronically, please use the following Institution codes: TOEFL 3184, SAT 7249, ACT 6790, IB 000147.
High School Graduation Certificate (Diploma)
Each applicant into a Bachelor programme must deliver an officially authorized copy of a secondary school graduation certificate and, if the school certificate does not clearly show the content and scope of subjects that were studied, also certified secondary school transcripts with an official translation into English or Czech (if issued in a different language to these). Those applicants, who completed their secondary education at a secondary school abroad, must deliver one of the following documents: a document about a general recognition of equality or validity of a foreign secondary school graduation certificate in the Czech Republic (so-called "nostrification"), or a document confirming obtaining a European Baccalaureate, or a foreign document about a foreign secondary school education if it is automatically recognized in the Czech Republic, according to its international agreements, without further official processing (secondary school graduation certificate from Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia), or a foreign document about completing secondary education which will be assessed by the faculty itself (no fee is being charged). Detailed information on how the condition of obtaining secondary education should be proven by the alumni of foreign secondary schools, as well as additional information, may be found on faculty webpages. The officially authorized documents must be physically sent to the Study Office of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics preferably by June 30, 2022, and by September 30, 2022, at the latest. If you do not deliver the document about a completed education, you will be neither accepted nor enrolled for Bachelor's studies. If you have not completed your secondary education yet but will complete it soon, let us know. You can provide us with the documentation later; however, you must have completed your studies before enrolment.
