Master's non-structured study programmes 

Since 2001 the three cycle structure has been implemented in higher education by the Amendment of the Higher Education Act, which has consistently been applied in practice since 1 January 2004 (Bachelor's study programmes, Master's study programmes, Doctoral study programmes).

Long 4–6 year study programmes (e.g. at the Charles University the overall length of study is the standard length plus five years) have gradually been replaced by Bachelor’s and follow-up Master’s study programmes. However, the accreditation of some non-structured Master’s programmes has not expired yet.

Where required by the nature of the study programme a Master's programme does not have to follow on from a Bachelor's programme. The “long” non-structured Master programmes are still accredited by the Accreditation Commission. These are programmes in certain fields such as e.g. medicine, veterinary science and pharmacy – see section Second Cycle Programmes, part Branches of study.

For the admission of students the same rules apply as for Bachelor's programmes. Transit throughout the studies, completion of study, teaching methods, etc. for non-structured structured Masters programmes are the same as for studies and completion of studies in Master's programmes.
