About Admission

The admission procedure at our school takes place without entrance exams and the submission of applications is free. Before applying we recommend to check entrance requirements. Admission process starts by filling out the online application form. You will hear back from us within 1 week. After acceptance we will send you a study contract and you will be asked to pay a deposit of 50% of the tuition fee. Preference is given to those who first sign Prague Film Institute’s study contract and pay the deposit which secures place on the course.
