If you are a new applicant who has not previously studied at CU and have never submitted an application for study in the past (regardless of success), you will be asked to register prior to submitting your application. In order to do so, you will be asked to provide a registration email address to which an email will be sent containing a link to a page where you will be able to set up your new password. You will need to use this email address and password in the course of the whole application process, as only under these credentials all of your current applications will be displayed. However, these credentials cannot be used for logging into other modules of the Student Information System (SIS).
Whenever you log in again after having submitted your application, you will see a list of all applications you have submitted under your name displayed in the upper right-hand corner, in the “My applications” section. If you use a different email address than the one provided during registration, only the “New applicant” option will be displayed in the upper right-hand corner and the “My applications” button will not be available.
Please do not create a new application under a different e-mail address, as this complicates the identification not only for the system but also for the employees of the Admission Procedure Department.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE PAYMENT FOR OWNERS OF BANK ACCOUNTS IN FOREIGN CURRENCIES
If you pay from an account in different than Czech currency, first of all, please, check your bank’s transfer fee and then add this fee to the total amount of the payment so that the resulting sum corresponds precisely with the application fee. When you pay by bank transfer, we also recommend you to generate a confirmation of the transfer in your internet banking and send it along with your application number by email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can find your payment in our electronic accounting system. The processing and assigning of the bank transfer may take several days. After approximately a week, we recommend you check if the payment was received and paired with your application.
If you would like to prevent issues connected with transfers and fees, pay the application directly by card in the Student Information System. We strongly recommend you to choose this method of payment. When paying by card, it is impossible to input wrong payment details and it immediately pairs with your application in the payment gateway, i.e., you will be at once notified that your application is paid for.
