Your goal is to study successfully at a university in the Czech Republic. Our goal is to prepare you for it.

The preparatory programme starts with a two-week intensive Czech orientation course, accompanied by an introduction to Czech culture and history and basic information on the study centre and Charles University. Starting from the third week, the teaching of specialized subjects begins in preparation for the entrance exams for humanities.


You can look forward to lectures, seminars and study assignments with feedback from teachers. Instructors combine theoretical instruction with practical assignments and practice to prepare students for the entrance exams and subsequent university studies (independent work, responsibility, time management). We place great emphasis on the acquisition of professional terminology and presentation skills. In the summer semester, students can attend lectures at selected universities.

There is no proper study without tests and exams. You will also write continuous tests in Czech and in your specialized subjects and take final semester exams at the end of the semester. The Czech language course ends with a winter semester exam at B1 level and a summer semester exam at B2 level. If you pass the final exams in the summer semester, you will receive a certificate of completion of the preparatory programme indicating your level of language proficiency. 



The FAST programme is intended only for students with an initial knowledge of Czech at the minimum level of B1 of the CEFR. Before entering the FAST programme, the student must provide a CCE certificate confirming the achievement of B1 level, or another certificate from ILPS CU confirming this level, or pass a diagnostic test and an interview to verify this level. Students with a Czech language level below B1 will not be admitted to the programme. Students with a lower level of Czech than B1 have the option to take the COMPLEX programme.


Subjects taught:

  • Intensive Czech language course (includes professional Czech terminology)
  • Specialised subjects:
    • Modern History
    • History of Art
    • Verbal Thinking
    • Sociocultural Seminar
    • English

The advantage of this campus in Prague 6 is the possibility of studying, meals and accommodation in one place. There is a large natural park and a large sports and recreational area of Charles University near the study centre. The trip to the city centre takes 15 minutes by metro.
