Welcome to the digitalisation project ‘Students of Prague Universities 1882–1945'

These pages contain digitalised documents pertaining to students of Prague universities in 1882–1945. Over time, we shall add registries of doctors, Rigorosum protocols, catalogues of students, and examination protocols of both the Czech and the German university in Prague.

Currently available are registries of doctors of the Charles University in Prague (i.e., of the Czech Charles–Ferdinand University in Prague) for the period of 1882–1939 and registries of doctors of the German University in Prague (i.e., the German Charles–Ferdinand University in Prague and the German Charles University in Prague) for the period of 1882–1945 and books of examination protocols of State Examination Commisions at the Faculty of Law of the German University in Prague for the period of 1877–1944. These are official books registering persons who received a doctoral degree or who took an exam before State Examination Commision at the Faculty of Law of the German University in Prague. You can start searching through these documents by choosing the relevant collection in the menu on the left. In the official books, it is possible to search by particular names. Before starting your search, we recommend you read the How to use this resource.

On-line accessible are only documents from the period of 1882–1945 since more recent archive sources may contain sensitive personal information pertaining to living persons. That is why they can be made accessible only with their permission.

This project is the work of the Institute of History of the Charles University and the Archive of the Charles University in collaboration with the Charles University Computer Centre (web page creation and database preparation).
