Admission requirements

Learning Potential Test

The Learning Potential Test (LPT) is held at all faculties except for the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Social Studies. It comprises seven parts focusing on verbal, symbolic, numerical, critical and analytical thought, judgement, spatial imagination and cultural knowledge. You will have 100 minutes to complete a total of 70 questions.

Try LPT for free (only in Czech)

In case you are unable to take the Learning Potential Test (LPT/TSP) on the regular test dates (20–21 June 2020) due to very serious reasons, you can apply for the alternate date of the test, which shall be 17 July 2020.

The following shall be considered serious reasons:

  1. acute hospitalisation
  2. home treatment of COVID-19
  3. quarantine ordered and confirmed by a doctor / public health officer
  4. study abroad and impossibility to arrive for entrance examinations (confirmed by the school abroad)
  5. representing the Czech Republic in sports

The application for the alternate date of the Learning Potential Test (LPT/TSP) including a confirmation issued by a doctor / public health officer, or an educational / sports institution shall be submitted directly in the e-application through the section Application for the alternate test date.

Field-specific tests

In addition to LPT, field-specific tests are mandatory for some Bachelor’s studies applicants. They are implemented by faculties and will be further specified by e-mail.
Entrance examination dates at individual faculties are listed in a detailed schedule separately for Bachelor’s and Master’s studies.

Recognition of foreign education

A certificate of recognition of foreign higher education and qualifications must be provided by students who earned a degree abroad. This official document ensures that your degree will be recognised in the Czech Republic (this does not apply to students from Germany, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia thanks to bilateral agreements on mutual recognition of educational qualifications). Please keep in mind that the entire recognition procedure may take up to 2 months. Your selected faculty will help you with the recognition process.

Preparatory course

Masaryk University offers specialized one-year-long preparatory courses for students requiring additional language skills and Czech language training prior to seeking enrolment in a university degree programme taught in Czech.

Preparatory courses will help develop your Czech language skills in order to enable you to pursue the degree of your choice at Masaryk University. In addition to improving your level of Czech, these courses will also provide you with a better understanding of Czech society and culture.

Preparatory courses are aimed at three main student categories:

  • Prospective students who have previously completed their secondary education abroad
  • Prospective students who have previously obtained a Bachelor degree in their home country and are therefore eligible to apply for a Master’s degree programme;
  • Prospective students who have already obtained a Master’s degree in their home country and are therefore eligible to apply for a doctoral degree programme.
