Waiver of the entrance examination

Applicants who have successfully completed a bachelor's degree in computer science or a related field of study or who are in the final year of a bachelor's degree programme in computer science or a related field of study may apply for a waiver of the entrance examination for the follow-up master's degree. At the same time, the applicant must have a study average for the entire duration of the Bachelor's degree of no more than 2.00 (according to the classification scale corresponding to the ECTS principles also used at MU; in the case of a different classification scale at the school, it is necessary to contact the study department of the Faculty of Informatics of MU) or must belong to the 50th percentile in his/her study programme. Applicants who have successfully completed a Master's degree in Computer Science or a related field, or who are in the final year of a Master's degree programme in Computer Science or a related field, may also apply for a waiver of the entrance examination for a follow-up Master's degree (in this case, there are no requirements for a grade point average). The relatedness of the field of study will be assessed at the time of application.

The possibility of waiving the entrance examination does not apply to applicants who have previously been enrolled for further studies at FIMU.

The applicant for a waiver of the examination will send a written request to the Study Department so that it is received by the application deadline.

  1. For a waiver of the entrance examination on the basis of a bachelor's degree, the applicant must attach to the application a transcript of the courses taken in the bachelor's degree programme together with the grade point average issued by the relevant university (the percentile achieved may also be provided). If the applicant has already completed a bachelor's degree, the transcript must be issued after completion of the degree. If the applicant is a final year student of the relevant course, the transcript must be issued no earlier than 3 months before the date of the entrance examination.
  2. For a waiver of the entrance examination on the basis of a master's degree, the applicant must enclose with his/her application a transcript of the courses taken at both the master's and bachelor's level issued by the relevant university (or school). The transcript must be issued after the completion of the Bachelor's degree. If the applicant has already completed a master's degree, the transcript must be issued after completion of the master's degree. If the applicant is in the final year of the relevant master's degree, the transcript must be issued no earlier than 3 months before the date of the entrance examination. In this case, admission is conditional on completion of the relevant master's degree, including passing the final state examination, as evidenced by an officially certified copy of the diploma.

In both cases, the course transcripts must be documented in Czech, Slovak or English, or in other languages in consultation with the Department of International Affairs. If the applicant has completed or is studying a degree programme at the Faculty of Informatics of MU, a transcript of courses is not required. Requested and unsolicited materials are not returned.

An applicant who is studying in an undergraduate degree programme at the MU Faculty of Informatics and meets the criteria for applying for a waiver of the entrance examination does not need to submit an application. The waiver of the entrance exam will be evaluated automatically on the basis of a duly submitted application for studies, on 11 May 2023 for studies from the autumn semester 2023 and on 12 December 2023 for studies from the spring semester 2024. Applicants will be informed about the waiver of the entrance exam electronically.
