    Information on the admission procedure: **Bachelor’s Entry Requirements**

    The goal of the admissions review process is to select from the pool of applicants those individuals who have shown the capability and diligence expected of Charles University students. To apply for the Bachelor of Computer Science programme given in English you must:

    - hold or be working towards a High School Leaving Certificate (Diploma) or its equivalent; in cases required by law, a certification of equivalence of education must accompany the application;
    - meet the Reasoning Requirements, and
    - provide sufficient proof of English Language Proficiency.

    To submit your scores electronically, please use the following Institution codes:
    TOEFL 3184
    SAT 7249
    ACT 6790
    IB 000147

    **High School Graduation Certificate (Diploma)**

    - Each applicant into a Bachelor programme must deliver an officially authorized copy of a secondary school graduation certificate and, if the school certificate does not clearly show the content and scope of subjects that were studied, also certified secondary school transcripts with an official translation into English or Czech (if issued in a different language to these). Those applicants, who completed their secondary education at a secondary school abroad, must deliver one of the following documents: a document about a general recognition of equality or validity of a foreign secondary school graduation certificate in the Czech Republic (so called "nostrification"), or a document confirming obtaining a European Bacalaureate, or a foreign document about a foreign secondary school education if it is automatically recognized in the Czech Republic, according to its international agreements, without further official processing (secondary school graduation certificate from Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia), or a foreign document about completing secondary education which will be assessed by the faculty itself (no fee is being charged). Detailed information on how the condition of obtaining secondary education should be proven by the alumni of foreign secondary schools, as well as additional information, may be found on faculty webpages, "here":https://www.mff.cuni.cz/studium/bcmgr/os/nostrifikace.htm. The officially authorized documents must be physically sent to the Study Office of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics by June 30, 2019 at the latest. If you do not deliver the document about a completed secondary education, you will be neither accepted nor enrolled for bachelor studies.
    If you have not completed your secondary education yet but will complete it soon, let us know. You can provide us with the documentation later; however, you must have completed your studies before enrolment.

    **Conditions for Admission**

    **Reasoning Requirements**

    The table below summarizes the minimum Reasoning Requirements for the undergraduate Computer Science programme at Charles University. You must have at least one of the qualifications listed here or provide us comparable results for other recognized qualifications such as Irish Leaving Certificate, German Abitur, Bagrut in Israel or STMP in Malaysia (specific required scores for other internationally recognized qualifications may be provided on request). Any test results should not be older than three years.

    **Minimum Qualifications**
    SAT Composite Score 1240, including a score in Mathematics of at least 620 (in the Old SAT, Composite

    Information on the admission procedure: **Master’s Programmes in English, 2019/2020**

    **Conditions for Admission**

    The goal of the admissions review process is to select from the pool of applicants those individuals who have shown the capability and diligence expected of Charles University students. To apply for our Computer Science or Mathematics Master's programmes given in English you must

    - hold or be working towards a Bachelor’s or Master’s diploma and provide a certified copy thereof;
    - have sufficient command of the English language; this can be demonstrated by providing your results in one of the standardized English tests that we recognize (see below for details).

    **Bachelor’s or Master’s Diploma**
    Each applicant into a Master’s programme must deliver an officially authorized copy of a Bachelor’s or Master’s diploma, or a confirmation of a faculty or university concerning a successful completion of Bachelor’s or Master’s studies. This requirement does not apply to students and graduates of Bachelor’s or Master’s studies at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University.

    The applicants who graduated from a higher education institution abroad, must deliver one of the following documents in order to prove their previous education: a document about a general recognition of foreign higher education in the Czech Republic obtained according to § 89 and 90 of the higher education law of the Czech Republic (so called "nostrification"), or a foreign document about a foreign higher education if it is automatically recognized in the Czech Republic, according to its international agreements, without further official processing (diploma and diploma supplements from Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia), or a foreign document about completing higher education which will be assessed by the faculty itself (no fee is being charged). Detailed information on how the condition of obtaining previous Bachelor’s or Master’s degree should be proven by the alumni of foreign higher education institutions, as well as additional information, may be found on faculty webpages, "here":https://www.mff.cuni.cz/studium/bcmgr/os/nostrifikace.htm. The officially authorized documents must be physically sent to the Study Office of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics by June 30, 2019 at the latest. If you do not deliver the document about a completed education, you will be neither accepted nor enrolled for Master’s studies.

    In addition to this, depending on the programme for which you are applying, you also must

    - **Computer Science programme:** have sufficient academic background in the relevant fields (see below for details); this can be demonstrated by solving a given take-home assignment correctly and on time, and by providing transcripts (academic records) of your previous education accompanied by syllabi of the completed courses (i.e., you must submit both the assignment and the transcript). For the take-home assignment, you may consult your notes, textbooks, Internet resources, friends etc. but the submitted solution must be your own work. To correctly solve the take-home assignment means to obtain at least 70 per cent of the maximum score.
    - **Mathematics programme:** have sufficient academic background in the relevant fields (see below for details); this can be demonstrated by providing transcripts (academic records) of your previous education accompanied by syllabi of the completed courses.

    You are also welcome to accompany your application by:

    - a statement of purpose in which you describe your reasons for applying to the proposed programme, your study, and possibly also research interests and future career plans;
    - letters of recommendation as recent as possible from professors and employers who can comment on your recent professional accomplishments and your qualifications for pursuing a master’s degree in mathematics or computer science.
