How to apply

We are pleased that you have chosen FIT as your higher education institution. This page summarizes all the important information that you need to apply.

The information at this page is intended ONLY for students who apply on their own to study in English. If you are applying through Erasmus/Socrates or another exchange programme, please follow the rules of the exchange programme.

How to apply to study at FIT:

1. First of all, please read carefully the respective Dean's Directive on admission to the respective study programme. Together with the Conditions of Admission, the Directive is the most important document that describes the admission process, deadlines, fees, etc.

2. Next, fill out the application form. The application process start day will be January 4, 2016.

3. Then, pay the application fee. The best way is to use our credit card payment gateway. If you cannot pay with a credit card, or if you prefer wire transfer (only recommended if you already have a Czech bank account), see the respective Directive or the Fees page.

4. Finally, assemble all the necessary paper documents. See the Directive for a complete list. Mail the documents (we recommend using registered mail or courier service) to our postal address specified in the Directive.

That’s it. Now, please wait for the admission decision. The Admission Committee meets irregularly, so it may take a month or two to decide.

If we do admit you, we will inform you by e-mail and ask you to pay the tuition fee for the first semester. As soon as we receive the payment, we will send you the documents that you will need to get your visa.

While you wait for your decision, please start collecting the documents for the process of official recognition of your previous education in the Czech Republic (called "nostrification").

  • Bachelor programme: You will need to have your high school education recognized. This process is performed by the Czech authorities. Please obtain an official document that lists all the subjects you studied, all your results, and the number of teaching hours for each subject. For more details, see:
  • Master programme: You will need to have your Bachelor degree recognized. This process is performed at our university. You will need your diploma and your diploma supplement (or another official document that lists all your classes and results).

In addition, please start to inquire about the requirements for your visa. The Czech Embassy serving your country will give you all the details. See:


Should you have any questions about admission to our study programmes, please feel free to ask.
