Degree recognition within the EU

  • Each country has its own legislative procedures for recognizing diplomas in different fields from different universities. As the EU does not have one health professions board, we cannot grant the degree recognition.
  • We recommend that our students check with the intended countries’ health professions to ensure their degree will be recognized. Some countries may also require additional certification.


  • Prominent students must apply for and obtain their VISA before their arrival to the Czech Republic
  • Detailed information on the process and the documents required are described on the Welcome Office website.

Course recognition from previous studies

  • After enrolment in studies, students can apply for the recognition of courses finished in their previous studies at a university in the Czech Republic or abroad.
  • Students cannot apply for course recognition before enrolment.
  • A course cannot be recognized if the course was passed more than three years from the date of the request for recognition.
