The program is taught in Czech language. See the study plan here.


Graduates of bachelor´s fields of study Fishery and Protection of Waters or graduates of other bachelor´s study programs and fields can apply for follow-up master´s study if they prove sufficient expert knowledge for follow-up study of master´s field.
The applicants will be admitted without entrance examinations if they graduated from the bachelor´s study fields Fishery and Protection of Waters and document the weighted average for the entire bachelor´s study (excluding the results of the final state exam) of 2.10 or better and if they defended the bachelor´s thesis with the grade very good at worst. Without entrance exams are also accepted all applicants when the number of candidates is less than a specified number of admitted students.
If the number of candidates is higher than the specified number of admitted students, the applicants, who fail conditions for acceptance of admission without entrance exams, will pass a written test. The test will include questions from the following subjects of accredited bachelor´s program Fisheries at the FFPW USB:
Basics of Biology (20 questions)
Basics of Hydrochemistry (20 questions)
Regulations for Fishing and Water Management (15 questions)
Water Management (15 questions)
Fisheries (10 questions)
The results of the written admission exam will make the rank of applicants according to gained points. This order will have a weight of 0.6. Another order will be set by the admission committee on the basis of points assigned in the range of 0-30 according to the evaluation of data on current practice of a candidate, competencies gained in the course of employment, his/her motivation to improve their qualifications and recommendations of the employer. This order will have a weight of 0.4. The applicants with the same average will have the same rank. Other candidates will have the rank corresponding to their actual order of ranked candidates (e.g. if two candidates have third order, the next rank will be 5). Overall rank of applicants will be determined by the weighted study average from the rank in the admission procedure and evaluation of admission committee. Every applicant with the same score, as the last admitted applicant gained, will also be included in the order of admitted students.
