Complete secondary education with a high school leaving exam („maturitní zkouška“).
How to prove your secondary education:
Completion of secondary education is proved by presenting a notarized copy of a secondary school leaving certificate. Applicants who gained secondary education by completing a secondary education programme at a foreign secondary education institution, an international secondary education institution, a European secondary education institution in compliance with the Convention defining the Statute of the European Schools, or at a school which is allowed by the Czech Ministry to provide compulsory education in compliance with the Education Act, must present a notarized copy of their secondary school leaving certificate, its notarized translation into Czech or English language, and confirmation of the particular foreign secondary school or another foreign body that a participant in the secondary education programme of the given foreign secondary school is, in the specific foreign country, entitled to attend a bachelor’s degree programme. Admitted applicants will be provided further instructions for assessment of the previous education, including a possible payment for the assessment.
A document proving general recognition of the equivalence or validity of a foreign document concerning receiving secondary education in the Czech Republic (nostrification clause) is required only when the Faculty of International Relations expresses doubts about sufficient level, scope, or content of the previous foreign education of an applicant, and the applicant will be asked to present the nostrification clause.
