Entry Requirements

The admission requirements apply equally to all Bachelor study programmes of the Faculty of Economics of Matej Bel University.

The basic condition required by law is the completion of the secondary education. Another requirement of the Faculty for full-time study is passing the entrance exam.

The entrance exam consists of written tests in one foreign language, mathematics and the basics of economics. The foreign language can be chosen from English, French, German, Russian or Spanish. The maximum score in each of the tests is 60 points, and for grade point average from secondary school, 20 points.

The candidates will be admitted to study in accordance with the ranking of their total scores until the planned capacity of individual study programmes in individual forms of study is fulfilled.

The entrance exam can be replaced by the test of General Academic Prerequisites (GAP) – the candidate can be admitted to the study at the Faculty of Economics in the case of having reached a percentile of 50 and higher. The GAP test can be taken within the National Comparative Exams provided by the Scio assessment centre at several places in Slovakia and the Czech Republic in six different dates during the academic year 2015/2016. The test can be taken more than once and the best result will be counted.

The applicants for part-time study will be admitted to study without an entrance exam.

In case the number of applicants exceeds the planned number for admission, the Dean of the Faculty has the right to decide to admit the students according to their grade point average from secondary school.

The Dean can exempt from the entrance exam the applicants who had previously passed the entrance exam, and had been admitted and enrolled in the study and were expelled from the study.
