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 for master's programmes must deliver, without written notice from the faculty, a notarized copy of their diploma and bachelor's degree state examination certificate to the faculty’s admissions office by 15 July 2023 (this applies to applicants from other universities).

Applicants who do not present any evidence of meeting the basic admission requirements by the given deadline will be accepted conditionally. Applicants are obliged to present a notarized copy of a diploma and bachelor’s-degree state-examination certificate (this applies to master’s-programme applicants from other universities) by the day of enrolment at the very latest; otherwise they cannot begin their studies.
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:
‒ a university degree at the bachelor’s or master’s level
‒ meeting the requirements of the admission proceedings
‒ for physical education programmes: a doctor’s confirmation of the applicant’s fitness for study
