9. Concluding remarks

  1. Data filled in the www.prihlaska.cvut.cz application and application attachments must be true and complete. False or incomplete data can result in rejection of the application form during the admission procedure and if discovered after the registration into the study programme by possibly exclusion from the studies later on.
  2. Within the first year of their studies the applicants must complete the process of official recognition of their secondary/high school education in the Czech Republic. The process requires more documents than requires this admission procedure. Applicants are urged to assemble all the necessary documents before arriving to the Czech Republic.
