Preparation for study - Krystal (classic preparatory course)
Students have intensive Czech lessons, combined with specialized subjects according to their future field of study.
The main goal is to teach students to speak and write Czech without mistakes, as well as providing them with the necessary knowledge to successfully pass entrance exams. We also emphasize the mastery of specialized terminology, self-study, and presentation practice.
There are 35 teaching hours per week, of which Czech is 23 hours in the winter semester and 17 in the summer semester.
The course develops all language skills and prepares students for everyday life in the Czech Republic. Every week, students also have one hour of Czech realia, in which they get acquainted with the Czech Republic, its territory, culture, education, and political system.up
The winter semester ends with a semester Czech exam at B1 level, plus exams and credits from specialized subjects.
The summer semester ends with a final Czech exam at B2 level, plus exams and credits from specialized subjects.up
NOTE! This study is very demanding for students with a typologically different mother tongue; we recommend choosing this study especially if you are planning to apply for art colleges or you are considering Czech studies for foreigners.

Arts and architecture
Аdmission presupposes the applicant's artistic talent; students are prepared for the theoretical part of the entrance exam. Talent exams for most schools take place in January.
Information for students of architecture
Entrance exams take place in January; architecture students must master most of the preparation in the first semester, when they will have more hours of preparatory studies than students of other disciplines; they will have fewer hours in the second semester. In the second semester, they prepare for the study itself, so that their start in the first year of architecture studies is as simple as possible.
The Faculty of Architecture of the Czech Technical University (FA CTU) stipulates for the admission procedure that applicants must submit a certificate of knowledge of Czech at B1 SERR level during the entrance exams (January). ILPS CU will allow students to pass the relevant exam in time (not included in the price of the course).
In case of admission, the student must submit a B2 certificate when enrolling in the study (the B2 level exam is the final exam at the end of the summer semester and is included in the price of the course).
FA CTU recognizes a certificate issued by ILPS CU, Masaryk Institute CTU, and the Department of Languages FA CTU.up
