Study in Prague, Czech Republic

Prague is a living museum and possesses architectural preservation like no other place in the world. It has risen to make an extraordinary name for itself after the fall of the Iron Curtain and welcomes you to discover its captivating, everyday wonders. This unaltered city is full of famous theatres and opera houses, open parks with political protest history, and centuries-old buildings converted into late-night discothèques

While you study abroad in Prague, you can learn Czech and take a wide variety of classes in English. During your free time, explore any number of the beautiful, interesting, or delicious sites around the city.

Charles University was founded in 1348 by Charles IV (Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia). The History, Culture & Politics program at Charles University offers courses such as history, cinema, political science, business, and art, among others. Courses are taught in English by host university faculty. The University ranks in the upper 1.5 percent of the world's best universities.

University of Economics Prague was founded in 1919 and has evolved into the leading university in the field of management and economics in the Czech Republic. The International Business & Economics program offers courses such as global business, international relations, marketing, finance, and more.
