Nostrification (diploma recognition) in the Czech Republic of foreign diploma

Diploma nostrification in the Czech Republic.

If you are a foreigner who wants to study in the Czech Republic, one of the requirements to be accepted by the universities is to verify that your education is equal to the education in the Czech Republic. The process of recognition depends on the level of education which you need to have nostrified.
If you are the holder of a secondary education diploma and you are already in the Czech Republic you will need to apply for a nostrification at the regional authority where you register, otherwise, they won’t accept your application.
If you are the holder of a secondary education diploma and you are not in the Czech Republic then you will be able to apply remotely at any regional authority.
