Rules for providing INTERSTUD scholarship support for foreign students

The entrance committee can suggest level of university scholarship up to 4000 CZK per month in the first year of study for some courses. The scholarship support depends on the level of Czech language preparation of the student!

Every semester, student must submit a request for scholarship for the following semester. In the request student states his study results; the results must be confirmed by the study department of a particular faculty.

Important information

It is strongly recommended to apply for a visa as soon as a student gets the decision of admission to study at the UWB!

Please be aware that you should be in the Czech Republic for beginning of the Czech language intensive course (ideally, at the end of May)! Participation in this course is obligatory for INTERSTUD students!

The successful applicants become UWB students on the day of personal registration at UWB. The registration dates will be announced in the letter confirming the applicant’s admission to UWB.

As UWB cannot cover the cost of the students’ medical treatment, applicants are advised to make the arrangements themselves.

Nostrification

According to the Czech law, it is necessary that all foreign students of the University of West Bohemia present at the beginning of their studies (at the beginning of academic year in September at the latest) documents proving nostrification/recognition of their previous study degrees.

Students who fail to present these documents will not be issued their Bachelor/Master diploma at the University of West Bohemia. The scholarship support can be reduced in case a student does not submit the validation of its previous foreign study in time.

Students in Bachelor programme must present nostrification of their secondary school education. Students in Master programme must present nostrification of their Bachelor degree.

Nostrified/Recognized documents approve that the applicant’s previous study degrees are equal to the Czech ones. They are issued in the Czech Republic by the Regional Authority (nostrification of secondary school education) in the student’s place of residence and by the relevant university (recognition of Bachelor degree).
