„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.“ >>>
