Notes on Eligibility

In 1990 the University/Higher Education Act declared a new degree structure be implemented at the universities. This new model closely resemble the North American pattern of a 3 or 4 year *Bakalár (Bc.)(Bachelor’s) and a 1-year Magistr (Mgr.) (Master’s). However, it has not been decided how the Bakaklár will be established. A number of Institutions are suggesting that it will be considered a terminal degree. Other universities are citing the proposed Bakalár as an ‘incomplete’ degree. Until the new degree structure is established and can be evaluated more closely, we will continue to require the Absolventa qualification as a basis for admission to graduate studies at U.B.C. *Many universities/institutions in the Czech Republic are postponing the introduction of the Bakalár until resources become available to design and implement the degree. The provisions of the 1990 Act are not being interpreted consistently across institutions.
