COURSE ORGANIZATION
The preparatory course is divided into two semesters. The winter semester begins in approximately mid-September with a two-week intensive course of Czech. The lessons are assigned to students according to the date of their arrival.

In October students are split into classes according to their specialization. Czech language classes naturally take up the greatest number of lesson hours; the other subjects correspond to the type of field to be studied.
The winter semester ends in approximately mid-January. In some of the courses the students only earn credits. The major subjects, however, in addition require taking mid-term/semester exams. After the end of the winter semester there is a one-week break.
The summer semester starts in February and lasts till the end of May. The requirements for the successful completion of the study programme are similar to those of the winter semester. Those students who successfully complete the programme will receive a certificate.

THE HUMANITIES
It is possible to study the humanities in the Czech Republic at many different universities at various levels and specializations. Most schools are located in the capital, Prague, and in regional/county towns. A shorter study programme (usually three years) is for a bachelor's degree (in Czech the title is abbreviated Bc.), a longer study programme (usually five years) is for a master's degree (in Czech the title is abbreviated Mgr.).
The university entrance exams usually focus on verifying the candidate's level of Czech, his/her knowledge of world and Czech history and his/her communicative ability in a foreign language (usually of the candidate's choice). Some universities also include general knowledge exams or an exam in logic.
The lessons in the humanities classes follow the content of the entrance exams. During the first semester most time is spent on the Czech language. This is a course in basic Czech which permits students to communicate in everyday situations and also acquire a basic understanding of Czech grammar. A great deal of attention is paid to written expression, too. History, geography and an introduction to the field of study (sociology, psychology, biology, philosophy, law, linguistics, literature…) complement the Czech classes.
During the second semester most lessons deal with specialized Czech for the humanities study fields. The lessons in history, geography and introduction to the field of study continue. In addition to these, lessons in logic and Czech culture and institutions begin.
 
ECONOMICS
It is possible to study economics in the Czech Republic at more than fifteen different universities at various levels and specializations. Most of the schools are located in the capital, Prague, and in regional/county towns. A shorter study programme (usually three years) is for a bachelor's degree (in Czech the title is abbreviated Bc.), a longer study programme (usually five years) is for an engineering degree (in Czech the title is abbreviated Ing.) or possibly a master's degree (in Czech abbreviated Mgr.).
The university entrance exams usually focus on verifying the candidate's level of Czech, secondary school mathematics (according to the Czech secondary school syllabus) and basic economics terminology. Some universities also include a psychology test, an IQ test or a general knowledge exam.
The lessons in economics classes follow the content of the entrance exams.

TECHNICAL STUDIES
It is possible to study technical subjects in the Czech Republic at various universities at various levels and specializations. The majority of our students usually want to study at ÈVUT in Prague or at VUT in Brno because these technical universities have the longest tradition. A shorter study programme (usually three years) is for a bachelor's degree (in Czech abbreviated BC.), a longer study programme (usually five years) is for an engineering degree (in Czech abbreviated Ing.).
The university entrance exams usually focus on verifying the candidate's level of secondary school mathematics and physics (according to the Czech secondary school syllabus). Since the entrance exams are in Czech, it is necessary to be familiar with Czech terminology.

The classes are divided according to the specialization, i.e. electro-technical, mechanical or civil.
