  • The university was founded in 1952 and has a rich history. A number of world-renowned chemists, including the Nobel Prize winners in chemistry, taught at the faculties of UCT Prague.
  • The university has state-of-the-art equipment and cooperates with over 40 universities around the world.
  • Scientific and educational projects conducted by the university is supported by leading companies in the chemical industry, including Unipetrol, the largest refinery and petrochemical company in the Czech Republic, and pharmaceutical company Zentiva.
  • Each student of the university has the opportunity to join any research project, undertake internships abroad and, as a result, get an up-market and well-paid job in the Czech Republic or abroad.

Admission to the Bachelor’s degree programs at UCT takes place without exams. Applicants are admitted based on their grades in chemistry and mathematics for the last four years of high school.

Foreign applicants are required to pass an exam in the Czech language at the UCT Department of Languages. The exam consists of a written test at the B2 SERR level, which includes natural sciences terminology, and an interview that tests knowledge of basic terminology in chemistry and mathematics. The Czech language exam takes place in mid-June.
