Exemption from the entrance examination

The Rector of the University of Social and Administrative Affairs may exempt applicants from taking the entrance examination if at least one of the following criteria is met:

  • school results criterion,
  • qualified competency criterion.

The school results criterion for exempting an applicant from the entrance examination is established for individual programmes and fields of study as follows:

a) school results within the average of 1.2: elite full-time bachelor study of Economics in Ostrava in the Economic Policy and Administration programme (average school results from all subjects for the past four years at secondary school as per school reports; unless the school report for the past year is available, only the school report for the first term is taken into account).

b) school results within the average of 1.5: full-time bachelor study in Havířov in the Economic Policy and Administration programme – fields of study: Public Economics and Administration or Management in the Social Sector or the Social Policy and Social Work programme – field of study: Social Work (average school results from all subjects for the past four years at secondary school as per school reports; unless the school report for the past year is available, only the school report for the first term is taken into account).

c) school results within the average 1.9: part-time bachelor study in Havířov in the Economic Policy and Administration programme – fields of study: Public Economics and Administration or Management in the Social Sector or in the Social Policy and Social Work programme – field of study: Social Work (average school results from all subjects for the past four years at secondary school as per school reports; unless the school report for the past year is available, only the school report for the first term is taken into account).

If a listed criterion for a given programme has been met, that applicant then meets the school result criterion, being admitted to studies by the Rector’s decision in accordance with the capacity of the given field of study. Only those applicants who are placed at the top according to the average school results are admitted, if the number of applicants meeting the school result criterion exceeds the capacity of a given field of study. In the event of identical average school results, the moment of delivering the application form is deciding.

The qualified competency criterion for exempting an applicant from the entrance examination is considered fulfilled if at least one of the following conditions is met:

a) participating in a foreign studying or working visit in the field that the applicant applies for and which lasts for at least one month and which is confirmed by the receiving institution,
b) passing a language exam from English or German on level B2 or higher, substantiated with the relevant certificate,
c) current and documented membership in Mensa Czech Republic,
d) Rector’s decision based on the administrative discretion of acknowledging the achievements whose types are equivalent to those listed under letters a) to c).

In the case of full capacity, the school result criterion is given preference to the qualified competency criterion in all respects.

Documents demonstrating the fulfillment of the criteria must be sent to the address of the school no later than one month before the date for the entrance exam.
