Equivalent Certificate – certificate on recognition of equality of the foreign school report in the Czech Republic

If the Czech Republic is bound by an international agreement to recognise a certain foreign school report as equal with the education certificate issued in the Czech Republic, the Regional Authority shall issue a certificate recognising equivalency of a foreign school report in the Czech Republic – upon the application containing the original of a foreign school report or its officially certified copy. If a foreign school report does not clearly indicate the content and scope of school subjects, the applicant shall submit a framework containing the education in the field in which he/she has attained the relevant level of education.

Nostrification examination

If the Regional Authority ascertains, within the nostrification procedure, that the content and scope of education completed in a foreign school differs only partially or the applicant does not satisfy requirements provided for in paragraph 1 – 2, the Regional Authority shall order the nostrification examination. The Regional Authority shall also reject the application if the applicant does not pass the nostrification examination.
