ARCHIP welcomes regular students, transfer students and also visiting students. Admissions procedure and tuition fees are the same for everyone. A minimum possible length of study at ARCHIP for transfer students is 3 terms.

Regular students, with no courses to be recognized, always start their study in the winter term (in October). Transfer and visiting students can start also with the summer term (in February) – non-EU citizens must apply by 15 November, others by 31 December.

The student applying to ARCHIP has to be at least 18 years old (to the date of the beginning of the academic year). He/she must also have completed a secondary school education certificated by school leaving examination, which has to be submitted. Due to legal requirements, admitted regular/transfer students from abroad later must have their high-school level of education recognized by Czech authorities, later (skoly.praha.e­u/87436_RECOG­NITION-OF-FOREIGN-EDUCATION).

The study programme features some technical courses (Geometry, Mathematics, Statics, Construction, etc.), so ARCHIP students have to have the high school level of geometry and mathematics – or have to learn it themselves during their study. The college is capable to help with that (private catch-up classes).


The candidate's abilities, skills and knowledge for study at the school of architecture will be tested in an admission examination, based on online submission of following documents:


  • a proof of completed secondary education (if already applicable)
  • a recent photo of the candidate


  • cover page with the name of the applicant
  • essay in English (motivation letter) of 400–500 words, in which the candidate will introduce himself/herself, his/her orientation and motivation for studying architecture
  • image content: sketches, paintings, photographs and other artwork or designs, proving creative and artistic potential, preferably relevant to the field of architecture and design

The portfolio must be compiled into one PDF file of not more than 10 MB. 
(alternatively a series of numbered JPEG in one directory – .zip file – of not more than 10 MB in total).
