Application process

  3. If the prospective student is accepted by the Head of Department, they will receive a contract.
  4. The prospective student sends back the signed contract and pays for the tuition and fees via bank transfer:
  1. American Bachelor’s program: 1 year’s tuition and fees
  2. European Bachelor’s program: 1 year’s tuition and fees
  3. Master’s programs: 50% of total program tuition
  1. If the student decides for recommended accommodation options the contract will be arranged directly with the dormitory.
  2. Once the tuition payment has been received, UNYP will issue the Official Acceptance Letter. UNYP will coordinate the accommodation and the contract, if necessary, as these documents are required for the visa application.

  4. Students must inform the International Office as soon as they receive the final status of their visa application. If the application is denied, the tuition fee (excluding bank charges and nonrefundable fees) is refunded based on the official written statement issued by the Czech Ministry of the Interior.

If the long term visa/long term residence permit application is denied, the Ministry will inform you in writing and in detail about the reasons for rejection. You are entitled to request a new assessment of the reasons for rejection within 15 days of the delivery of the relevant information.
