Overview of Education Funding

Education is, to a decisive extent, financed from public budgets. However, financing of the regional (from nursery schools to tertiary professional schools and school facilities, governed by the Education Act), higher and further education is different.

Public regional schools and school facilities obtain funds from the state budget and from the budgets of territorial administrative units – regions and municipalities, they can also acquire some funds through their economic activities and participation in international programmes. Tuition is only paid in nursery schools and tertiary professional schools, and its amount is determined by a decree.

Financing principles changed substantially in 1992, funding per institution turned to funding per student (per capita). The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports determined a formula – the so-called republic per-capita amounts of non-investment expenditures per pupil applicable throughout the country. In 2003 regions joined in the allocation of these funds by determining regional per-capita amounts per pupil in individual types of schools and fields of study. The overwhelming part of non-investment expenditures are financed by per-capita amounts, just a smaller part is financed from earmarked funds. Investment expenditures are financed in a non-normative way.

Private schools and school facilities are granted subsidies to finance non-investment expenditures related to education and training and current operating non-investment costs from the state budget through regional authorities on the basis of a contract for the respective school year. These schools usually collect tuition. Schools and school facilities receive subsidies directly from the Ministry of Education based on the same normatives as private schools.

Funds provided from the state budget on the basis of the per-capita amounts (annually more than 75 % of higher education institutions’ revenue) represent a major source of public higher education institutions finance. Other funds are gained through student fees, property revenue, revenue from instructional and supplementary activities, donations and bequests or funds from other public sources. At present public higher education is provided free of charge, only students who stay longer than is determined by the study programme pay additional fees, however, it is currently envisaged that an enrollment fee will be introduced.

Private higher education institutions can obtain subsidies from the Ministry of Education if they have the status of public benefit companies, however, most of them do not receive them.

Further education (adult education) is financed from the state budget if it is provided in schools and if it provides education at the respective level. In other instances it is financed by relevant ministries, companies or the students themselves. Registered job-seekers are entitled to full reimbursement for re-training courses from offices of the Labour Office CR, other persons interested should pay these courses by themselves. In the case where a company organises courses for its employees, it is obliged to bear the costs.
