What is the nostrification procedure? When and how shall I start it?
Information about nostrification procedure is available on our website.
The University of Economics was granted the so-called institutional accreditation, consequently, it will be able to recognize foreign secondary education of its applicants. Only when the Faculty of International Relations expresses doubts about sufficient level, scope, or content of the previous foreign education of an applicant, the applicant will be asked to present the nostrification clause, which is issued by the Czech authorities.
The Faculty can provide assistance to its future students. If the nostrification clause is required, we recommend waiting till the decision on (non)admission is made and then starting the procedure.
What will I need for living in the dormitory?
The basic equipment (including blankets and sheets) is provided by the dormitory. However, there are no dishes available in the kitchenette. We recommend buying any missing equipment when you arrive in Prague as the prices are quite cheap.
