Applicants are accepted to the programme on the basis of admission exams results.
For the bachelor’s programme (as well as for other programmes), the SPF test is required (SPF = a test identifying applicants’ skills with emphasis on humanities and social sciences). Even if students apply for more degree programmes, they only perform one common SPF test which will be assigned to all applications. Apart from this test, which is taken in written form (see www.ff.upol.cz for more information), there is neither a subject test nor an oral exam required for the Latin Philology degree programme.
In order to be accepted into the master’s degree programme, applicants complete an admission exam, which is given in the form of an interview. It consists of questions concerning the field of study which an applicant applies for, and a discussion of the existing and future professional focus of an applicant. The discussion is based on a proposal for a future diploma thesis (a bachelor thesis might be used, or other professional texts of an applicant) presented in a written form. The project, which must be within the range of 3 pages, has to be presented at the exam. If an applicant applies for a different area of study than the one his/her bachelor’s programme covered, or applies for a programme at the Philosophical Faculty UP from a different faculty or college, he/she will submit, in addition to a project, a diploma supplement of his/her bachelor’s degree (the diploma supplement can be replaced by a list of attestations during the bachelor’s studies; the diploma supplement, or a list of attestations, must be verified by the programme department of the college/university in question).
