Applicants who do not provide the Certificate of Recognition of foreign secondary/higher education and qualification in the Czech Republic in their application will be nominated for 2nd phase of Admission procedure (evaluation of their foreign education at CZU).
The list of documents which need to be submitted for evaluation is available here: https://www.czu.cz/en/r-9188-study/r-9254-recognition-of-foreign-education/r-17071-internal-evaluation-of-foreign-education-within-the-admission-procedure/foreign-education-evaluation.html
You will need to get the originals of your Diploma and Transcript of records authenticated – this means either super-legalised, apostilled or just notarized. The type of appropriate authentication depends on the country in which your Diploma and Transcript were issued. The process of authentication of documents can take several weeks so we highly recommend that you start this process as soon as possible.
The list of countries and the type of required authentication is available on https://www.czu.cz/en/r-9188-study/r-9254-recognition-of-foreign-education/r-17071-internal-evaluation-of-foreign-education-within-the-admission-procedure/authentication-of-documents.html
The usual steps in authentication of documents are as follows (although these can vary in particular countries):
- You need to authenticate the original Diploma and Transcript of records in accordance with the relevant International Agreement (Apostille or Super-legalisation by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country where documents were issued and by Czech Embassy in that country).
- You need to visit the public notary to make the notary verified copies of authenticated Diploma and Transcript of records in such a way that:
- o each page with information contains stamp from notary / responsible officer OR
- o true (certified)/notarized copies of your documents are joined together in such way that it makes impossible to subsequently replace or substitute the pages and the last page contains stamp from notary.
Please note that true (certified) / notarized copies that are joined together just by stapler without notary stamp on each page containing information are not accepted! We recommend submitting notary verified copies as the original documents can get lost by post.
If your documents are not issued in English, Czech or Slovak, you need to visit certified translator to translate the notary verified copies into Czech or English and to officially append the translation to the notary verified copies. In that way, the notary stamp is translated as well and original documents are not damaged by the attachment.
You can send the scan or photo of translated notary verified copies via email for pre-approval, but at the end, you need to send the required documents together with the application form by registered post (e.g. DHL).
