Admission to a doctoral study program is conditioned by proper completion of studies in a Master’s study program. Master’s diploma must be recognized in the Czech Republic (more here).
The applicant can apply for admission to only one study program. International applicants have to submit their applications for admission with a copy of the document of diploma recognition.
Students applying for a program in a language other than Czech have to pay a tuition fee. This fee is set at 5,000 EUR per academic year.
The amount is to be paid by a bank transfer. The data needed to carry out a payment can be obtained from the Faculty.
The admission fee equals 50 EUR (or the equivalent at the current rate of exchange).
Completed application forms are to be sent to the address of the Faculty by May 29 in the year of admission procedure at latest.

The major line subjects’ examination has a form of a discourse on the issues related to the study program the applicant intends to study. The assessment of the applicant’s performance takes account of the applicant’s interest in the field of study, his/her acquaintance with the issues in that study program and his/her general capability. Information on the examination as well as the list of literature expected to have been studied can be obtained from doctoral studies coordinators at the relevant Faculty.
English language examination consists of reading of a general economics text (15 to 20 lines), summary of the text and discourse on an issue related to the applicant’s major specialization and intention concerning the studies pursued.
