Statement on AI for PCU Admissions 

AI-based assistance programmes can be powerful and useful tools. We understand their value in helping you generate ideas in order to write your letter of motivation. However, your final submission should always be your own. You should not copy and paste content you did not create directly into any documents as part of your application. As with any collaboration, or other sources of inspiration, if you choose to utilise AI-based assistance while working on your PCU application we encourage you to use it to generate, edit, and refine your ideas only. We appreciate AI could be a helpful collaborator, particularly if you do not have access to other assistance to help you write your letter of motivation, yet it should be used cautiously. At PCU we want to meet you, and hear your story. We look forward to receiving your application and reading your letter written in your own words. 

Need preparation?

If you would like to get additional preparation in either language or academic skills before entering Bachelor's level programmes, you can be enrolled in one of our Foundation Diploma programmes: Foundation Diploma in Art, Design & Media Practice or Foundation Diploma in Business.

These programmes are also available for those who would like to complete the last year of their high school education before progressing to a Bachelor's degree programme.

If you would like to know more about these programmes, contact our Admissions advisers at admissions@praguecityuniversity.cz or call (+420) 222 101 020.
