Application procedure



Qualification criteria for full-time and part-time first-cycle studies

The sum of the candidate's points in the following subjects is taken into account

  • mathematics
  • an additional subject.

Formula for calculating the candidate’s points:

W = mathematics × p + subject additional × p + points for qualifications

International candidates will have their state examination grades, entitling them to undertake studies in the country of issue, recalculated into points. If mathematics, an additional subject, or a foreign language were not taken in the state examination, the grades from the secondary school graduation certificate (excluding computer science) are recalculated. The method of recalculating the grades into points in a given country is established by the admission committee for international students.

The formula for calculating the candidate’s number of points should apply the following substitutions


The number of points corresponding to the recalculated grade in mathematics exam

Subject additional

The number of points corresponding to the recalculated grade in additional subject

p = 1.0

For a state examination with a specified result in mathematics and an additional subject

p = 0.8

For a state examination without a specified result in mathematics and an additional subject

p = 0.6

For intramural examination and other than state examination

p = 0.3 For grades from the secondary school graduation certificate
