*The CEVRO Institute would like to encourage students to come to Prague regardless of their financial circumstances.The scholarships we offer are awarded on merit and/or on financial need. Applications are invited especially from those with a strong academic background.
# Note that the PPE program can be completed in three trimesters, i.e. one year. Studying in trimesters saves time and money. It gives you the same student learning experience as a semester model but you will complete your Master’s program in a shorter time. It saves you money not only because you will find a good job with a new degree sooner but you will save on other costs as well such as staying in accommodation in Prague for the full-year and one year only (as opposed to leaving Prague over the summer period and get back after summer break).
If you need a visa to get to the Czech Republic, here is the general information.
In short, this is how you should proceed:
After you receive a Letter of Acceptance from CEVRO Institute and a Confirmation of Accommodation (sent directly to the Czech Embassy in your country of origin) you can start your visa application process for a student visa at the Czech Embassy or Czech Consulate in your country of origin.
There are two types of student visas:
- short term (up to 90 days), and
- long term (more than 90 days).
Applications for both short term and long term visa must be submitted at the Czech Embassy or Czech Consulate in your country of origin.
(The short term visa is issued by the Czech Embassy or Czech Consulate in your country of origin and takes only 10 days to be processed. The long term student visa is issued by the Czech Ministry of Interior and takes up to 60 days to be processed.)
