Applicants applying for studies at every level at STU that have finished their previous education outside of Slovakia must provide a decision of recognition with their study application.
If you are applying for a Bachelor study program, the process of recognition is handled by the Regional Office of School Administration. Please find more information at the website of the Slovak Ministry of Education.
If you are applying for a Master or Doctoral study program, for the purpose of continuing your studies, the process of recognition is done by the Slovak Ministry of Education (applies to documents issued anywhere outside of Slovakia). Please find more information on the website of the Slovak Ministry of Education. If you're unsure whether this sort of decision will be accepted, please contact the Study Department of the Faculty you applied to and ask.
If you have documents issued by a university in the Czech republic, there is no need for recognition- these documents are equal immediately.
If you require a decision of recognition for other purposes (such as unregulated profession, work, to issue a Blue Card, continuin studies with the requirement of a study program and study field), the process will be done by STU.
Before you submit an application, please take a look at the list of accredited study programmes at STU.
