in the Czech Republic

Czech higher education has a tradition of 600 years. In 1348 the Czech ruler Charles IV founded Charles university in Prague, the oldest university in Central Europe.

Higher education is divided into three levels: bachelor, master and doctoral studies.

The bachelor study usually lasts 3 or 4 years and the student, after successful completion of the studies, obtains the bachelor's degree (Bc.) or Bachelor of art degree (BcA.).

Master's programmes usually last two years as they are following up the bachelor studies. There are some programmes that do not follow up the bachelor’s studies, in these programmes the study period may take up to 4 or 6 years. Upon successful completion of the master's programme, the student will be awarded a master's degree (Mgr.), Master of Arts (MgA.), Engineer (Ing.), Engineer Architect (Arch.), Doctor of Medicine, MD, or Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (MVDr.) degree.

Doctoral studies are intended for graduates of master's courses and usually last for 3 years. Students will be awarded the Doctor (PhD.) or Doctor of Theology (Th.D.) degree.
