Entrance examination terms by cooperating agencies are organised from May to August
in Italy, Germany, Israel, Austria, UAE, Greece, Portugal, Sweden and the Czech Republic.

Registered students are informed by their agency about the exact term and place of the entrance exam well in advance, at least 15 days before their entrance examination term.
Also the format of the examination (present format) can be modified.

Conditions how to apply and sit the entrance examination organised by the cooperating agency are set by each agency and may differ from each other. We fully recommend that all conditions should be governed by a written agreement between an applicant and an agency. An agency has a full right to refuse any applicant – in this case the applicant is usually recommended to apply without an agency for the entrance examination term in Pilsen.

The cooperating agency should offer you an assistance and help you to process following basic steps:
An agency informs an applicant about all details of the entrance examination and admission process properly and on-time and helps an applicant to go through all necessary administrative steps regarding the application, admission and enrolment process.

The fact, that the applicant is applying through an appropriate agency will be identified according to a list of applicants sent by an agency to the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen.

Only correctly submitted applications together with the receipt/payment of registration fee will be registered in the system.

Entrance examination

The entrance examination test consists of a multiple choice written test in Chemistry, Biology and Physics in the present form. Setting the format of the entrance examination remains wholly with the responsibility of the Faculty. In total, there will be 75 questions, with each subject having an allocation of 25 questions. There is always only one correct answer and is assigned with 1 point. There are no penalties in case of mistakes. The condition is passing the entrance exam in Physics, Chemistry and Biology and gaining a particular number of points to be admitted.

The minimum number of points necessary for the successful passing of the entrance examination test will be announced well in advance before you sit the entrance examination.

The tests are administered and marked by a university professor. The admission of students remains however within the responsibility of the Dean of the Faculty. Depending on the outcome of the examination, those who achieve the required results enrol at the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen in late September of the same year.

The applicants will be informed when the results will be provided within few days after the Entrance Examination. The results will be provided via e-mail.

Students who fail the entrance examination may not retake the exam during that same Academic year.

Successful Applicants

Congratulations on passing the entrance exam at the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen.

We would like to pass on some important information and remind you a few dates that you should not miss.

High School Certificate

In the admissions procedure for the 2024/2025 academic year the faculties will assess compliance with the requirement of obtainment of secondary education with ‘maturita’ school-leaving examination under section 48 (4) of the Higher Education Act in the case of applicants who obtained a foreign secondary education by completing a secondary educational programme at a foreign secondary school, an international secondary school, a European School operating under the Convention defining the Statute of the European Schools, or a school licensed by the Ministry under the Education Act to offer compulsory education.

You should send a hard certified copy of your secondary school diploma or certificate to the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen (Ms. Zuzana Zmrhalová, alej Svobody 1655/76, 301 00 Plzen, The Czech Republic).

Documents which are not originally issued in the Czech, English, or Slovak languages must be officially translated into the Czech or English languages. If the official translation is made by other than a Czech certified translator, the sheets with translations must be attached to the authenticated copies of the documents they relate to in such a way that makes it impossible to subsequently change or replace the sheets containing the translation. Translations attached to unauthenticated copies of documents shall not be accepted.

Keep in mind that if you need legalization (super-legalization or apostille) of your diploma or certificate then this process can be done only in the country which issued the document. The faculty needs to receive a notarized copy of your documents. We do not accept basic copies or PDFs for the process. A fee for the assessment process is established in the amount of 930 CZK, if the payment of assessment fee is requested.

Although the amount of the assessment fee may be similar to the entrance examination fee, the assessment fee is a different from the entrance exam registration fee and must be paid separately.

We accept only hard copy form send by post or bring personally. The deadline for providing necessary documents to the Faculty is 31th August 2024

Documents sent after the deadline as well as documents sent via email will not be accepted.

We fully recommend starting the verification and legalization of your high school documents as soon as possible, so you are able to manage the whole process on time, meeting the deadline for submitting the documents for the purpose of admission to study. 

Officially admitted students will receive their official acceptance letter upon submission of their fully and properly legalized high school documents, i.e. if all admission criteria have been met.

Types of High School Documents and their assessment


As the Czech Republic is a member of the EU, international students coming from EU countries do not need a visa. However, if you come from a country outside the EU and your stay is planned for more than 90 days, you are required to have a student visa. For more information: Entry requirements – visa

If you need a visa, please apply to a Czech Embassy or Consulate well in advance. Your Letter of Admission from the Dean of Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen, which you will obtain as a successful applicant, will allow you to get one for the initial period of your study in the Czech Republic.

Your visa application should be submitted to a Czech embassy at least 90 days before the planned date of your departure to the Czech Republic. If there is no Czech embassy or consulate in your country, you can use one in a neighbouring country. Please note that it is not possible to apply for a visa in the Czech Republic, only for a visa extension.

Documents required by the Czech Embassies/Consulates for VISA Application:

  1. Passport (its validity needs to exceed your intended stay in the Czech Republic by at least three months).
  2. Letter of acceptance (from Charles University, Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen, Admission Office).
  3. Confirmation of accommodation in the Czech Republic (from your landlord or University dormitory) – look at the website of the Czech Ministry of the Interior.
  4. Confirmation from your bank that you have sufficient financial means on your account to support your stay in Czech Rep. (at least 120 000 CZK) – bring bank statement/credit card.
  5. Document similar to an Extract from the Penal register record – look at the website of the Czech Ministry of the Interior
  6. “Žádost form”, this green form can be obtained at Department for Asylum and Migration Policy or at the websites of the Ministry of the Interior or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
  7. One passport photograph.

If your application is approved, prior to affixing the visa, you are obliged to submit a proof of travel medical insurance. As from 1st of August 2021, students are required to have complex health insurance which covers not only emergency hospital visits, but also other outpatient medical expences such as vaccinations, routine hospital visits, blood test etc. The only insurance company which will be accepted is Všeobecná zdravotní pojišťovna (VZP; General Health Insurance Company). 

For other useful information see the Czech website, where you can also download forms related to immigration.

Tuition Fee

The annual tuition fee for the academic year 2024/2025 is 390.000,- CZK for both courses (General Medicine Course and Dentistry Course). The tuition fee payment is tax-free.
