Under what conditions is it possible to be admitted to the Bachelor's degree without an entrance exam?

Admission without an entrance exam applies exclusively to applicants for single-subject studies in Computer Science, Programming and Application Development or Cybersecurity and is possible if one of the following criteria is met:

  • the result of the National Comparative Examination of General Study Prerequisites (General Study Prerequisites in Czech, General Study Prerequisites in Slovak) held no later than the TSP deadline, including among the top 20%,
  • the result of the National Comparative Examination in Mathematics held no later than the TSP deadline, including among the top 45 %,
  • the result of the SAT I examination in mathematics with at least 580 points,
  • a score on an AP (Advanced Placement) examination in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subject at Level 4 or 5,
  • a score of at least IQ 130 on a standardised adult IQ entrance test administered by Mensa CR or Mensa SR, and a high school average for the last 4 years in all subjects at the end of the school year (the final year counts as the midterm) of their studies of no worse than 1.5,
  • Successful solver of at least a district round (i.e. if the competition does not have a district round, a regional or higher round is considered) of a secondary school vocational competition in the Czech Republic included in the SŠ Excellence Programme from the following list: Mathematical Olympiad (category A, B, P), Physical Olympiad (category A, B), Chemical Olympiad (category A, B), Astronomical Olympiad (category A, B), Biological Olympiad (category A, B), Logical Olympiad (category C), Programming Competition (category SŠ - youth programming languages, SŠ - web programming)
    or a successful solver of at least the regional round of a secondary school professional competition in Slovakia from the following list: Mathematical Olympiad (category A), Informatics Olympiad (category A), Physical Olympiad (categories A, B), Chemical Olympiad (category A), Biological Olympiad (category A), ZENIT in programming (categories A, Web Developer, Graphic Designer)
  • successful solver of the regional round of the Secondary School Vocational Activity (SOČ) in the fields of mathematics and statistics; physics; chemistry; electrical engineering, electronics telecommunications; computer science,
  • finalist of the High School Competition in Cyber Security (organized by AFCEA, https://www.kybersoutez.cz/),
  • successful solver of the correspondence seminar in computer science organized by FI MU.

In all criteria (except IQ) only results realized in 2020 and later can be taken into account.

I am studying at FI MU or have studied at FI MU. Can I be exempted from the admission exam for bachelor studies?

Applicants who have already studied or are studying at FI MU may be admitted to the Bachelor's degree programme only on the basis of the TSP results.

How do I apply for a waiver of the entrance exam based on the National Comparative Examinations? The dates of the NSS are also after the collection of waiver applications.

Please upload a scanned application for an entrance exam waiver to your e-application form by 28 February 2022. Please indicate on the form the dates of the exams you plan to attend. Faculty will accept test results that are taken by the TSP deadline.

I have succeeded in the National Comparative Examination. Is it necessary to send a certified copy of my SCIO certificate with my written application?

No, in this case only a written request is required. However, you need to give the SCIO, the company that organizes the NSP, permission to provide information about your result to the Faculty of Computer Science.

I will be taking the IQ test from Mensa SR. How should I proceed?

If you score 130 or above in the test, you must send a written request for a waiver of the entrance exam by mail, together with a certified copy of your certificate, no later than February 28, 2022. If you will be taking the test after this date, enter the completed waiver request in your e-application form by 2/28/2022 and mail the certified copy of your certificate at a later date so that it is received no later than 4/15/2022 and your application can be processed by the TSP. You must also provide proof of your high school grade point average, which must be no higher than 1.5. The grade point average will be supported by a catalog sheet, certified by the high school (stamp + signature), on which the average will be calculated. This is the overall average of all grades on the report card in grades 1-3 at the end of the school year and in grade 4 at midterm.

Can I apply for a waiver of the written entrance exam electronically?

Yes, if a certified copy of the document is not required to accompany the waiver application, the completed written application can be scanned and uploaded to the e-application as well as the attachment - by February 28, 2022.

What does it mean to be in the top 20% of the National Comparative Examination?

The percentile you received must be equal to or greater than 80.

Is my high school grades or matriculation exam results taken into account for admission?

The grade point average from high school is only required if you are applying for a waiver and your IQ test score is at least 130. This is the overall average of all grades on the report card in grades 1-3 at the end of the school year and in grade 4 at midterm.

Will previous years' results be taken into account for admission without an entrance exam?

Yes, we also take into account previous years' results for admission. However, the oldest can be from 2020, except for the IQ test, which is valid indefinitely.

Is the NSZ also organised in Slovakia?

Yes, SCIO also organises tests in Slovakia (Bratislava, Žilina, Košice) http://www.scio.cz/

Is it possible to study in a combined form?

No, only by attendance.

Can I apply for more than one programme?

Yes, you can. You must fill in a separate e-application form for each programme and pay a handling fee.

I want to apply for a waiver of the entrance exam. Is it sufficient to only tick the application in the e-application form?

No, you must either send a written application at the same time or, if you do not need to provide a certified copy of the document, you can scan the completed application and include it in the e-application as an attachment - but no later than 28 February 2022.

Frequently asked questions about the admission procedure for the Master's programme

I am a student in the final semester of my Bachelor's degree at the Faculty of Computer Science at MU and I meet the requirement of a grade point average of no more than 2.00 or I am in the 50th percentile in my degree program. Do I have to submit a written request for a waiver?

No, an applicant who is studying in the Fall 2020 semester in the Bachelor's degree programme at FI MU and meets the criteria for a waiver of the entrance exam for the follow-up Master's degree from the Spring 2021 semester does not need to submit an application. The waiver will be evaluated on the basis of the submitted application for admission and applicants will be informed electronically.

I am a final year undergraduate student from another university, how should I go about applying for a waiver?

The applicant for a waiver will send a written request to the Office of Studies so that it is received by the application deadline. The request will be accompanied by a transcript of 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 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.

I am an undergraduate student, how do I go about applying for a waiver?

The applicant for a waiver of the examination must send a written application to the study department so that it is received by the deadline for applications. The application must be accompanied by a transcript of the courses taken in the bachelor's programme, together with the grade point average obtained, issued by the university concerned (the percentile obtained may also be provided). If the applicant has already completed the bachelor's programme, the transcript must be issued after the completion of the programme.

I am an international applicant, will I be able to get everything sorted out?

Applications will be processed on a rolling basis once the admissions fee has been paid. Invitations to sit the entrance examination or decisions to waive the entrance examination will also be sent out on a rolling basis. Applicants from outside the Czech Republic and Slovakia are therefore advised to submit their application (including, if applicable, a request for a waiver of the entrance examination) and pay the application fee as soon as possible.
