Applications for International grants – Charles University Registration Details
- Ensure you always enter the correct official details of Charles University in relevant databases. The address should always be that of the University: Ovocný trh 3/5, 116 36 Praha 1; it is NOT the address of your faculty or institute. The same details must be given in all international applications, regardless of whether the agency is situated within or outside the EU and regardless of whether the grant is funded via an EU programme or not.
- Please do not register yourself in any database as an employee of Charles University without informing the Research Department at the Rectorate; by doing so you will probably make it impossible for other applicants at the University to register their own grant applications.
- If (e.g. due to time pressure) you are forced to register Charles University with an agency, please inform the Research Department at the Rectorate of this fact without delay.
- You can request registration by sending an email to Mgr. Adéla Jiroudková (tel. 224 491 731), copied to the Head of the Department RNDr. Helena Kvačková.

Program Tuition Fee
Logic is a theoretical program that relies on mathematical methods and can be applied in mathematics, computation, and specific fields of philosophy. Logic has also connections to linguistics and law theory. In general, graduates can be employed in all areas which deal with formal and quantitative methods and rely on critical analysis of problems, often in formalized environments (software or legal companies, government or educational institutions). Graduates can continue in a doctoral program (Ph.D.) in logic.
