Our structure

The Institute for Language and Preparatory Studies operates in the capital city of Prague and in Poděbrady - a pleasant spa town near Prague.

Study Centres

All our teaching premises provide a welcoming and inspiring environment that stimulates study motivation and also provides space for leisure activities with classmates. In Prague as well as in Poděbrady, students will experience the synergy of historical monuments and modern teaching spaces.


* Krystal Centre

Students of one-year preparatory programmes study in the university mini-campus Krystal Centre, which benefits from the possibility of classes, accommodation and meals in one place and its proximity to the Divoká Šárka Nature Reserve.

* Voršilská Centre

Czech courses for general public take place in Prague at the Voršilská Centre in the historic building of a former monastery, which until the recent reconstruction of the university served as the Arnošt of Pardubice dormitory. Our Prague students can also find accommodation in the Hostivař Dormitory.


In Poděbrady, students of one-year preparatory programmes take classes at the castle where Václav Havel also studied. The accommodation is just a ten-minute walk through the quiet spa town.

Specialized Departments

In addition to the study centres, the institute also has two specialized departments. The Methodology and Expertise Centre supports the quality of teaching in our study centres and also provides methodological courses for teachers and methodological audits and consultations for other educational institutions.

The Research and Testing Centre prepares and delivers standardised exams in Czech for both the Institute's students and the public.
