Course examinations at CULS are usually held over a 5-week period, immediately after the end of the 14-week course period. Most examinations are both oral and written. And they are about three hours-long. Normally, students are allowed three attempts to pass an examination. Examinations in courses offered in English are also held in English. Alternatively, the assessment can be based on individual or group project work evaluation. The project report allows the student to work in-depth on one topic through lectures, group work, laboratory work and practical experiences. Depending on the course unit and its position in the curriculum the supplementary assessment can be conduced either by an internal or external examiner to ensure that the project is evaluated fairly and properly. Project work must be written in English. 

Administration fee for successful candidates from the Entrance Examination held in PRAGUE, Czech Republic is 20 000 CZK per academic year. Other forms of study have different tuition fees.
