Conditions of admission

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS:
- obtaining a complete secondary education or a complete secondary vocational education (§56, par. 1 of the Higher Education Act);
- Motivational interview with the applicant (the applicant presents to the admissions committee his/her ideas about studying at PF KU, as well as his/her expectations from studying at PF KU and commits himself/herself to respect the Catholic spirit of the university and the faculty);
- for the teaching study programmes in art education, music education, musical arts and physical education, successful completion of the talent test is required (see the talent test section);
- other study programmes - without talent test.
The ranking of applicants will be based on the following rules:
1. Motivational interview with the candidate for study (50% of the total evaluation), results in high school (50% of the total evaluation).
2. In the case of talent exams, the evaluation is calculated as follows:
30% for the results at high school, 30% for the motivational interview and 40% for the talent exam.
The average value of the marks in the subjects of the final exam is calculated for the study candidate. This value is multiplied by the coefficient of the secondary school from which the applicant has graduated:
coefficient 1 for grammar school,
coefficient 2 for vocational secondary school,
coefficient 3 for vocational secondary school with matriculation.
The resulting value determines the applicant's position in the order of success in the admissions procedure.
