Accepted applicants are required to provide an officially certified copy of their school-leaving certificate or an officially certified copy of the nostrification (in the case of foreign education) when enrolling in the course. All legal and other requirements for admission to study will then be met.

1. I don´t have an invitation to the entrance exam (I´ve lost it, I haven´t received it...)

The invitation should reach the applicant no later than two weeks before the entrance exams. It is not necessary to bring the invitation with you to the entrance exam, what is sufficient is a valid identity document (your ID card or passport).

2. I don´t understand some of the terms used in the application form:
  • Study program is a unit covering a certain coherent thematic field of study, e.g. Design or Fine Arts. A student is admitted to university study in a particular study program.
  • Specialization (studio) represents how the student profiles within their study program. A student can study exclusively in only one studio. Study programs differ in their form, see below. Within one degree (in one study program), it is possible to transfer from one studio to another after meeting certain conditions, i.e. to change one´s study discipline or form of study.
  • Bachelor´s degree programs are designed to prepare students to perform their profession, making direct use of current knowledge and methodology; they also include selected theoretical knowledge. The standard period of study, including optional work experience, is four years. Bachelor degree graduates earn an academic degree of “Bachelor of Arts" (B.A.).
  • Master´s degree program and post-graduate master´s degree programs aim at both the understanding of comprehensive theoretical foundations of the particular discipline and at developing the skill to apply theory in practice. By graduating the program, the graduate receives a complete and full university education. The standard period of the master´s degree study is six years. The standard period of the follow-up master´s degree program is two or three years. Master´s degree program graduates are awarded the academic degree of “Master of Arts” (M.A.).
  • Doctoral study programs focus on scientific research and independent artistic creation in the field of research and development. The standard period of study is four years. The doctoral program graduates earn the academic degree of "Doctor" (Ph.D.).
    The full-time daily form of study is a form that allows a university student to participate regularly in classes, e.g., to attend consultations, seminars, lectures and other learning activities conducted by academic staff.
  • The combined form of study (formerly called distance learning) is a combination of full-time daily and distance form of study.
3. A few tips on how to best prepare for the admissions process

Get to know UMPRUM and its events on the website, the school's Facebook page or at the whole school Artsemestr exhibitions.

Arrange individual consultations for applicants, which are provided by most studios.

Attend preparatory drawing and painting courses for the admissions procedure (month of January) - watch Courses for the public UMPRUM.

Visit the Open Day.

For the theoretical part of the admission procedure for the first year of bachelor's and master's studies, we recommend studying "The Story of Art" by Ernst Hans Gombrich.

5. Portfolio submission

The portfolio is submitted via the electronic application form
(there may be other ways, read carefully the information about the admission procedure of the selected study)

Unless otherwise specified by the relevant studio, please choose only the PDF format for the final portfolio.

To convert files of different formats to PDF, it is possible to use online tools such as HiPDF or Adobe PDF Converter

The file that you will save with your application can have a maximum size of 60 MB. If your studio specifies a smaller size, please respect the studio's instructions.

If you are required to submit a larger file size, e.g. video, audio, photo album, please use one of the freely available platforms where you can save the file and enter only a link to the work so published in the text file.

For video or audio files, such platforms include Youtube, SoudCloud or Vimeo, but you can also use Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Koofr, or a link to your own website.
