Universities note drop in applications

Many Czech universities continue to accept applicants in some fields, particularly in technical disciplines, but also some philosophical, theological or natural sciences, as the number of applicants has dipped in line with demographic trends.

Charles University has registered around 60,260 students this academic year, down from 62,384 a year ago. At the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen applications were down by about 1,000 applications and the Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem recorded 300 fewer applicants than last year.
