About Applying

The admission procedure at our school takes place without entrance exams and the submission of applications is free. You can read more about entrance requirements on this page. To apply, just fill out the online application form located on our website and attach the required documents. Then we will send you a study contract and you will be asked to pay a deposit of 50% of the tuition fee. After receiving the deposit we will issue the enrolment documents which are necessary for non-EU applicants in order to submit a visa application.

Applying to Prague Film Institute is easy. You just fill in our online application form and upload a copy of your passport and link to an example of your creative work or motivational letter. We evaluate applicants according to their creative potential and date of application. After successful admission, preference is given to those who sign Prague Film Institute’s study contract and pay the deposit which secures place on the course. After securing the place, newly enrolled non-EU students will be eligible to start the visa application proces. For visa application you can either use services of our professional visa agency or choose another agency by your own. Most of our applicants use the visa agency recommended by Prague Film Institute.
