Pre-university education is at least 12 years of study

Bologna Note:

The Czech Republic joined Bologna process in 1999.

Since 2001 most universities (i.e. Masaryk University) started to offer three cycle degree system:

First cycle (Bakalar) – 3-4 years
Second cycle (Magistr) – 1-3 years
Third cycle (Doktor) – 3-4 years

Since 2006 the diploma supplement has been issued together with a diploma.

Most public higher education institutions are currently using ECTS or an ECTS compatible credit system. Private institutions have been slower in adopting ECTS.
