Information for foreign students

We would like to inform all students from third countries (i.e. countries outside of the European Union) that the Czech Ministry of Health issued a very restrictive exceptional measure effective from 1 July 2020, which establishes drastic conditions for entering the Czech Republic, see here.

The Council of Higher Education Institutions and the Czech Conference of Rectors are now negotiating with the ministry on possible changes of this decision, especially with regards to the current students. Metropolitan University Prague joined other higher education institutions in these activities. In case these conditions will not be changed before the instructions of this winter semester start, we would like to assure those of you who will not be able to come back to the Czech Republic for presence education, which starts on 26 October 2020, that we will provide fully adequate education in online form until you will be able to arrive and participate on standard instructions.

We will continue to post all current information on our specialised web page.
