Admission process

Being accepted to university or college may change your life completely. What are the criterias for admission?

First of all it must be said, that criterias differs from Faculty to Faculty and from program to program. Please do not forget there are tuition fees per any program taught in English language.

There might be 3 different scenario:

  • Criterias, when applying to Bachelor program
  • Criterias, when applying to Master program
  • Criterias, when applying to Doctoral studies

A) Bachelor studies

Lets start with first option. You just finished your secondary school and would like to apply for university or college in Slovakia. Then you need to prove, that you have completed your studies at secondary school successfully. This is related to recognition of completed courses – procedure, which is time intensive and where assistance is usually needed. Subsequently, there are various criterias for admission: entrance examination in form of multiple choice test (for medical, denstistry and pharmacy programs), personal interview or presenting your achievements. If you need any assistance, just drop us a message and we will help you with everything. There are usually following documents to be submitted for application:

  • electronic application – you will need to upload your person details as well desired study program in English
  • application fee – usually 30-80€ per application
  • motivational and reference letter from teachers
  • CV
  • copies of secondary completion certificates – before enrollment to universities you will need to provide notary copies of your documents or sworn translations of them

B) Master programs

After completing of the first level of education, student may opt for second level of education to be completed in Slovakia – Master studies in English language. Master studies do have form of 2 or 3 programmes, which extend knowledge obtained during bachelor. There is no obligation to continue within the same program – on the other hand, it makes more sense to finish in the same field of study as student began. There are usually following documents to be submitted along with your application:

  • electronic application
  • confirmation of application fee payment – 30-80€ usually
  • motivational and reference letter from teachers
  • CV
  • copies of Bachelor certificate and consolidated marksheet with all completed subjects

Faculties usually perform Skype interview where they will check your level of English and motivation for studies. Once you get accepted, you get admission letter in English language. If you are from 3rd country, you will need to apply for visas and residence permit in Slovakia – for this purpose you will need to pay tuition fees before visas interview.

C) Doctoral studies

Doctoral studies are available for those students, who successfully finished master program. Usually programs are costly – 8.000-10.000€ per program. Scholarships are provided in exceptional cases or by governmental organisation called SAIA.
