Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Applicant to Study
I am interested in studying at BUT; where can I find a list of study programs?
You can find all study programs on the BUT Study Programs - BUT website and in the e-application. The first round of applications has already been completed, so not all study programs offered by our university are open in the e-application. Some faculties still accept Ukrainian refugees into study programs where applications have already been closed. If you are interested in studying a study program not currently in the e-application, contact a specific faculty that will provide you with more information about current opportunities.
I am interested in a short-term study course, where can I find information?
Contact the faculty coordinator of foreign relations at the faculty of your choice. You can find a list of contacts here.
Will there be a new application deadline for Ukrainians?
Some faculties have announced new deadlines for applicants who have been granted temporary protection in the Czech Republic due to the war in Ukraine. Further information will be provided by the study department of the specific BUT faculty. Follow the information on the websites of individual faculties.
Is it possible to waive the admission fee?
Yes. Applicants for studies at BUT who have been granted temporary protection in the Czech Republic in connection with the armed conflict in Ukraine have been exempted from the application fee and the assessment fee for previous foreign education since 28 March 2022. Fees paid so far will not be refunded.
Should I apply to study in Czech, even if I don't speak Czech yet?
Yes, you can, but you have to reckon that the admission procedure takes place in the Czech language.
What Czech language courses does BUT offer? Is it possible to learn Czech at BUT now?
The capacity to offer Czech courses for Ukrainian students at BUT for the summer months is complete.
We are currently working on information on Czech courses for Ukrainian students at BUT for the academic year 2022/2023. We will inform you as soon as we have the information.
It is possible to use the external offer of Czech language courses for foreigners:
If you have any questions about Czech language courses at BUT, write to the email: email@example.com.
Is it possible to learn Czech by the beginning of the new academic year?
Yes. In the case of an intensive Czech language course and maximum commitment to self-study, we believe that the basic level can be reached by the beginning of the new academic year. However, it would help if you continued to study this language because it will not be easy.
Will BUT provide extraordinary financial support to students from Ukraine?
We try to give you support. It depends on the provision of funding by the state; however, nothing can be guaranteed.
The student did not manage to finish the last year of high school in Ukraine. Is there a possibility that he would still start at BUT in the coming academic year? If so, what needs to be documented?
According to reports we have from the Ministry of Education of the Czech Republic and the Ministry of Education of Ukraine, students in the final year of secondary schools will have "officially" completed secondary education on the basis of a special law of Ukraine. These graduates should have a certificate of completed secondary education - "Atestat" - in the summer months at the latest. On the basis of this document, they can be accepted to study at Czech universities.
Can the courses I studied at my Ukrainian university be recognized?
Each student can apply for recognition of the subjects of their study program based on the subjects completed at another university. The student applies for recognition of subjects at the faculty where he/she is studying; more detailed information is provided by the study department of the specific faculty. The content conformity of these subjects is important.
Can I continue my studies (e.g., 2nd year), or do I have to start studying from the beginning?
It all depends on the specific situation. Suppose it will be possible for a student to recognize lower-grade subjects based on subjects completed in the previous study. In that case, he/she may be placed in a higher grade, with some missing subjects being supplemented.
In the case of studying in English, is there a possibility of waiving the fee?
It's up to each faculty to decide. Contact the study department of your chosen faculty with a question.
Is it possible to work at BUT?
Definitely yes, but rather part-time, because studying is time-consuming. You can find job offers on various job portals, such as jobs.cz.
I am a professional athlete. Is it possible to implement at BUT in this direction?
Of course. You can find information about university sports and sports representation of the university here.

To deal with the family situation associated with the war, I would need to interrupt my studies. How should I proceed in such a case?
