Study in Prague


The Study in Prague project launched in 2015, is an iniciative of seven Prague universities. It doesn’t matter whether your interests lie in medicine, international business, social sciences, environment protection, chemistry or physics; if your goal is to hone your skills in mathematics, food, agriculture, film directing, architecture, informatics or journalism. All seven universities offer a wide selection of top quality undergraduate and graduate study programmes taught entirely in English.

Are you looking for a promising first step into the world of higher education? Are you choosing a direction for your Masters and want a fresh start? Or perhaps you already graduated and your main focus lies in further scientific research and earning your doctoral degree. Search no further – you have just found your answer!

The Study in Prague project brings together seven of the best rated universities praised by students and researchers alike. 

  1. Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague
  2. Academy of Performing Arts in Prague
  3. Charles University in Prague
  4. Czech Technical University in Prague
  5. Czech University of Life Sciences, Prague
  6. University of Economic, Prague
  7. University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague

The variety of study possibilities is perfectly balanced and broad enough to satisfy even the most ambitious endeavours.All the universities offer accredited study programmes in their respective fields. These include the humanities, hard sciences, agriculture, architecture, engineering, medicine, economics, various art programmes involving cinema, music, dance, design, graphics, media and many others. Ultimately the choice is yours.

The typical Czech academic year starts in the last week of September or the first of October and each semester takes 13 weeks of study. The winter semester ends in December or January and is followed by a 7-week exam period, which ends in mid-February. The same length applies to the spring semester, which lasts until the third week of May, followed by another exam period of 7 weeks. If you are perceptive enough, you know what that means: No midterms. The finals at the end of each semester can be done in written, oral, or combined format. All the universities utilize the ECTS credit system with 30 ECTS credits for semester. Altogether you’ll need 180 ECTS to complete a Bachelor’s programme and 120 ECTS for a Master’s programme.

But it’s all not only about studying! Even though Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic, compared to its siblings across Europe, it remains relatively small. It has less than one eighth of London’s population, half of Rome’s and approximately a third of Berlin’s. This allows the city to maintain its very specific character without being too vast to be properly comprehended. It is one of the greenest and most compact capitals you’ll ever see and a much more affordable alternative 

to the rest of them.

As the cultural and historical centre of the entire country, Prague will satisfy every need for educational or leisure activity you may desire. Even better, almost every university and their respective colleges are situated in the very core of the city, easily reachable from every direction by public transpoprt or even on a bicycle in less than half an hour. For all the students, Prague is a city of dreams. Hundreds of cinemas, art galleries, music halls, clubs, sport facilities and parks lay on top of each other. Boredom is never an issue. Choosing correctly how you want to spend your free time, now that is the real dilemma.
