STUDY IN CZECH REPUBLIC
Czech Republic was formed at the start of 1993, having formerly been part of Czechoslovakia. Previously a communist state under the influence of the Soviet Union, it has undergone rapid development in the past few decades, and in 2006 became the first former Eastern Bloc state to be rated as a “developed country” by the World Bank. Today, the Czech Republic is an increasingly popular destination for international study, with almost 44,000 foreign students currently enrolled at its universities. EU statistics released in 2014 listed it as the 12th most popular destination for Erasmus students in Europe. There are certainly many perks for those choosing to study in the Czech Republic: well-esteemed universities, affordable tuition fees and living costs, and last but not least, a vibrant and colorful cultural life.
High quality education and research, especially in Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, has a long tradition in the Czech Republic. The Charles University in Prague was founded in 1348 and is the oldest university in Central Europe. Czech universities offer long-standing reputations, unique conception and interesting specializations. Students can come for a short study visit or to complete their degree in a wide range of traditional as well as newly-emerging disciplines. Czech universities are more and more involved in a wide range of international cooperation activities and programmes taking place in the European Union and other countries. Studying in the Czech Republic places you in the middle of Europe and gives you a great chance to travel all over the continent and discover countries and places you might otherwise not have the opportunity to visit.
