About Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is a landlocked country in the middle of Europe. Rather than as a country in the middle of Europe, people should speak of the Czech Republic as a country in the heart of Europe … after all, the heart is not to be found precisely in the center of the human body either.

Czech Republic’s capital city Prague is indisputably one of Europe’s most beautiful capitals. Cobblestone streets, Baroque cupolas and medieval spires give the city a naturally breathtaking backdrop.

About higher education in Czech Republic

Foreign students study at tertiary schools under the same conditions as Czech citizens, provided that they are able to study in Czech. Therefore, since Czech students are not required to pay for their studies, the same conditions apply to foreign students.

Foreign students wishing to study at a Czech tertiary school in another language than the Czech language must pay tuition. At private tertiary schools, all students are required to pay tuition; the same conditions apply to Czech citizens and foreigners alike.

Private institutions of higher education can fix their own fees. The tuition fees differ from 2,000-15,000 USD per year and the amount depends on the relevant institution and study programme.

Finding a place to live often takes time, so we advise you to contact your Czech Republic education institution for information about accommodation as soon as you have been admitted in case you have not received the information with your admission letter.

The institutions will be able to assist you in finding a place to live. There are several accommodation options:

*room in a hall of residence, price: 240-400 € per month.
*privately rented room in a house or a flat, price: 200-500 € per month.
*privately rented flat – either alone or shared with other students, prices vary considerably.

Foreign students (visa holders) can be employed, but must have a job permit. Job permit is not required only if the student (max. 26 years old) works not longer than 7 consecutive calendar days or 30 days a year in total.

Finding job may be difficult, especially if you don’t know the local language. It is not recommended for you to work more than 15 hours per week – otherwise you may neglect your studies.
