Each faculty of CTU, and some of the Institutes at the university, organise and teach their own study programmes, and each faculty and institution organizes its own entrance procedures. In most cases, there is a written test based on the prerequisites for studying at the faculty. For bachelor study programmes, the tests are mainly on mathematics and physics. The entrance tests for the Faculty of Architecture include a talent test (an aptitude test). If you have very good previous results, or if you competed in a secondary school Olympiad for maths and physics, or have special achievements related to your proposed studies, have a good look at the conditions in the entrance procedures. You may fulfill the requirements for acceptance without an entrance examination.
