General Information for Schools about Foreign Student’s Study
Studies of foreign students in the Czech Republic are governed by laws no. 326/1999 Coll., on Residence of Aliens in the Territory of the Czech Republic, law no. 111/1998 Coll., on Higher Education Institutions, and law no. 561/2004 Coll., on Pre-school, Basic, Secondary, Tertiary Professional and other Education (the Education Act).
Regarding the studies, EU citizens (including citizens of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) have the same rights and duties, as citizens of the Czech Republic. These students are obliged to report their anticipated stay exceeding 30 days to the police, within 30 days of their arrival to the Czech Republic.
Family members of EU citizens (both close and distant ones) who are not EU citizens themselves, and have applied for a residence permit, or already have a residence permit issued, can stay in the Czech Republic and study without any limitation. If their application has not been approved, their temporary residence in the Czech Republic ends with that.
For more information about residence permits for EU citizens and their family members, please follow this link.
Third-country nationals, who want to stay in the Czech Republic for the purpose of study, can sojourn in the Czech Republic only during the time of validity of their long-term residence visa or their long-term residence permit issued by the Czech Republic, or issued by another EU member state withing the frame of a study exchange programme, including mobility aspects (e.g. ERASMUS), or under agreements between universities.
