Admission/registration

General registration procedures

Students interested in studying at Palacký University should request application materials directly from respective Faculties at Palacký University.

The main language of instruction at Palacký University is Czech, even if there are some courses and programmes designed for English speaking students. Foreign students willing to learn Czech language are encouraged to enrol in one of the Czech for Foreigners Courses organised by the Faculty of Arts, its Centre for Distance Learning. Those who would like to learn something about the Czech culture and way of life, language, history, and country in general, can apply for the Summer School of Slavic Studies which usually takes place in August and its participants appreciate the high-level study program combined with rich and interesting cultural experience.

When you decide to enrol in the university, address your application form to the appropriate Palacký University faculty, its study department. Prospective students are also encouraged to contact the department of their choice in order to negotiate their plans in advance. Keep in mind to check the language of instruction. In any case prospective students can ask the International Relation Office or a faculty coordinator for general information and advice.
