With the test results, you can submit documents to the selected institution - as a rule, 2/3 of the students enter chosen universities as the level of preparation is high enough for successful university education.

  • Secondary technical schools (stredni technicka skola)

Such schools accept students who plan work or studying in a technical college: education lasts 4 years and ends with a profile exam for maturity.

  • Secondary vocational schools (stredni odborna skola)

Here students study for 2.4 or 5 years. Students who have completed a full course and successfully passed final exams can start working.
