„I chose to prepare at ÚJOP because it provides the best quality courses in the Czech Republic. The teachers here are really great. We didn't only study Czech, but also specialized subjects: physics, chemistry and biology. This is what helped me the most to pass the entrance exams to all 5 medical faculties of Charles University.“ >>>

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 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.


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.
