Conditions of admission
Teaching of German Language and Literature
German language proficiency at the B1 level or higher according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is a prerequisite for studying Teaching of German Language and Literature in every programme combination.
Applicants will be accepted on the basis of their scores on a general academic prerequisites test, part of the National Comparative Exams administered by the company Scio, in place of an entrance exam. Results from a previous Scio test no older than three years will also be accepted.
Applicants who present a certificate obtained by completing at least one of the following examinations will earn the maximum score in the admission proceedings (without being required to take the Scio test):
• Großes Deutsches Sprachdiplom
• TestDaF
• Goethe-Zertifikat, level B1 or higher
• ÖSD, level B1 or higher
• German language diploma DSD I PRO, level B1 or higher
• secondary-school-leaving examination on the German language, level B1 or higher
• a certificate of completion of secondary-school studies from a German bilingual section of a gymnasium
If the number of applicants does not exceed the planned number of accepted students, the requirement to take the entrance exam will be waived.


Teaching of History
Applicants must complete a general academic prerequisites test, part of the National Comparative Exams administered by the company Scio, in place of an entrance exam. If the applicant has taken this test in the past three years (2020–2022), they may simply attach the relevant document confirming their score to their application.
If the number of applicants does not exceed the planned number of accepted students, the requirement to take the entrance exam will be waived.



Conditions for international students
Basic admission requirements for foreign applicants to bachelor’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 (this does not apply to applicants to the programme Slovak for the Linguistic and Cultural Competence of International Students)
‒ 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 all foreign applicants to bachelor’s programmes (except for applicants to the programme Slovak for the Linguistic and Cultural Competence of International Students).

General information on the admission exam
General information on the admissions process

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 secondary-school-leaving examination certificate (applies to applicants for bachelor's programmes who have completed secondary school)
- 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 bachelor’s programmes (except for applicants to the programme Slovak for the Linguistic and Cultural Competence of International Students),
- specifically required enclosures for the programmes Slovak for the Linguistic and Cultural Competence of International Students and Teaching of Physical Education and Coaching

Applicants for bachelor's programmes who are taking their secondary-school-leaving examination in the same year as they are applying and are applying for a programme with no entrance examination must deliver a notarized copy of their secondary-school-leaving examination certificate to the faculty’s admissions office by 13 June 2023.

Applicants for bachelor’s studies who have been granted asylum, subsidiary protection or temporary protection may demonstrate their attainment of full secondary education or full secondary vocational education by providing a declaration on their honour with the requested information. The declaration of honour and official document confirming the granting of asylum, subsidiary protection or temporary protection must be delivered by hand or via post to the faculty’s admissions office by 13 June 2023. If an applicant demonstrates their attained education with a declaration of honour, they must also complete a general academic prerequisite test administered by the company Scio. The applicant does not need to provide evidence of the results of the general academic prerequisite test, but when filling out the application form for the test at https://www.scio.sk/, they must give consent to the provision of the test results to the faculty. The applicant must also fulfil the admission requirements of the particular study programme they choose.

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 secondary-school-leaving examination certificate (applicants for bachelor’s programmes) 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.

The results of the entrance examination will be announced on the faculty website.
If an applicant is absent from the entrance examination for serious medical reasons, half the admission fee will be refunded upon the delivery of a written refund request to the faculty’s admissions office. The request must be postmarked before the date of the entrance examination (determined by the posting date of the post office). No other reasons for the admission fee refund are considered valid; therefore it is impossible to claim a refund for the remainder of the fee.

Basic admission requirements for bachelor’s studies:
‒ completed secondary-school education or secondary vocational education with a school-leaving certificate
‒ meeting the requirements of the admission proceedings
‒ for physical education programmes: a doctor’s confirmation of the applicant’s fitness for study
