Conditions of admission
Slovak Language and Culture
The basic requirement of admission to this programme is completed bachelor’s studies in the field of study Philology or a related field of study (Teacher Training and Education Science), particularly the study programmes Slovak Language and Culture in combination with a foreign language, Slovak Language and Literature in combination with a foreign language, the single-field programme Slovak Language and Literature or other similarly oriented programmes.
Applicants will be selected based on their academic results from their bachelor’s studies.
As this is a combination study programme, where the second sub-programme may have a different method of selecting applicants, the overall order of acceptance will be determined by combining the points from each sub-programme’s admission proceedings. The sum total will be used to determine the order in which applicants are accepted.


Russian Language and Culture
Russian language proficiency at the B2 level or higher according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is a prerequisite for studying Russian Language and Culture. Foreign applicants who have completed their bachelor’s studies abroad are also required to possess Slovak language proficiency at the C1 level or higher according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
The applicant shall demonstrate fulfilment of these criteria with documentation of their completion of bachelor’s studies in a programme or combination of programmes in the field of study Philology or a combination of fields of study including Philology.
If the number of applicants exceeds the study programme’s planned number of accepted students, the faculty reserves the right to select applicants based on their marks from their bachelor’s studies.


Conditions for international students
Basic admission requirements for foreign applicants to master’s programmes:
‒ successful passing of the entrance examination
‒ Slovak language proficiency at the required level (at least B2 or C1) according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
‒ confirmation of acceptance of the applicant’s certificate of education completed abroad at the required level of education (with the exception of certificates from the Czech Republic, for which a confirmation is not needed)

The application must include:
- a certificate of proficiency in Slovak as a foreign/second language at the required level (at least B2 or C1 depending on the study programme criteria) issued by a language school included in the network of schools and educational institutions of the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic (registered public language schools and private language schools) – required for foreign applicants to master’s programmes who studied in a language other than Slovak at the bachelor’s level.


General information on the admission exam
General information on the admissions process (bachelor’s and master's degree programmes)

For all applicants, the admissions process begins by submitting an electronic or printed application. Applicants may apply for multiple programmes, but they must submit a separate application for each programme they apply to. There is no limit on the number of submitted applications.
If applicants apply via electronic application, they are also obliged to send a printed application to the faculty. The printed application must be filled in, personally signed and include all required enclosures. An electronic application without a printed counterpart received by the admissions office is invalid.


The application must include:
- the applicant’s CV
- a notarized copy of the applicant’s bachelor’s-level state examination diploma (applies to applicants for master's programmes who have completed their bachelor’s studies)
- a copy of the applicant’s bachelor’s diploma supplement or, if they have not yet completed their bachelor’s studies, the transcript of records from their bachelor’s studies (this applies to master’s-programme applicants from other universities)
- a copy of the proof of payment for the application fee (paid via bank transfer)
- a certificate of fitness from a doctor (applies to physical education programmes)
- a certificate of proficiency in Slovak as a foreign/second language at the required level (at least B2 or C1 depending on the study programme criteria) issued by a language school included in the network of schools and educational institutions of the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic (registered public language schools and private language schools) – required for foreign applicants to master’s programmes who studied in a language other than Slovak at the bachelor’s level

Applicants who have completed a previous level of education abroad are obliged to prove the recognition of any education certificate obtained outside the Slovak Republic. The admitted applicant is obliged to present proof of recognition for their education certificate no later than the day of enrolment.

Admission requirements for master’s studies:

‒ meeting the requirements of the admission proceedings
‒ for physical education programmes: a doctor’s confirmation of the applicant’s fitness for study
