Your goal is to study successfully at a university in the Czech Republic. Our goal is to prepare you for it.

The preparatory programme starts with a two-week intensive Czech and English orientation course, accompanied by an introduction to Czech culture and history and basic information on the study centre and Charles University. Starting from the third week, the teaching of specialized subjects begins in preparation for the entrance exams for economics studies.



Mgr. Jitka Krebsová

I teach Czech, English and Latin. I am the head of the English Preparatory Programme in Poděbrady and a methodologist of Czech and English within the programme. I cooperate with the Ministry of Education as a reviewer of English and Czech textbooks.

I have been working at ILPS since 2010.


„The most exciting thing about working with ILPS students is the possibility to meet people from different cultural backgrounds, to find things we have in common, and to help them to prepare for the future.“

Mgr. Jitka Krebsová


You can look forward to lectures, seminars and study assignments with feedback from teachers. Instructors combine theoretical instruction with practical assignments and practice to prepare students for the entrance exams and subsequent university studies (independent work, responsibility, time management). In the summer semester, students can attend lectures at selected universities.

Preparatory programmes in English take place at our campus in the centre of Poděbrady. You have the possibility to stay in a dormitory within a ten-minute walk from the castle, where the classes take place. There is also a large castle garden where various leisure activities take place. Poděbrady is easily accessible from Prague by train or bus and the trip takes about an hour.
