Recognition of foreign education and qualifications (nostrification)

The College of Polytechnics Jihlava, as a public university, is entitled in selected cases to decide on the recognition of foreign higher education and qualifications pursuant to Section 89 of Act No. 111/1998 Coll., on Higher Education and on Amendments and Supplements to Other Acts (the Higher Education Act).

The university compares the content and scope of the foreign study with the study in a similar accredited study programme carried out by a public university in the Czech Republic. The relevant public university can be found, for example, in the list of public universities in the Czech Republic on the website of the Ministry of Education of the Czech Republic. If the study programmes differ in significant respects after comparison, the application for recognition will be rejected.

Basic information on the procedure for applying for recognition can be found at the graduate of the foreign university:
