Avatar

“My initial expectation was that the preparation year would be long and sad waiting for my university, but I was wrong. It is funny, but I am grateful that I did not get to the university straight away. Now I have more knowledge, more friends that are coming with me to the university. This year was definitely worth it!”

STUDY

The preparatory programme starts with a one-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 second week, the lessons in specialized subjects begin, which will prepare the students for the entrance exams for studies in economics fields.

 

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

 

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.

 

There is no proper study without tests and exams. You will also write continuous tests and take final semester exams at the end of the semester. If you pass the final exams in the summer semester, you will receive a certificate of completion of the preparatory programme.
