Czech Republic

Situated in the heart of Europe, the Czech Republic is a landlocked nation. Because of its strategic position, the Czech Republic is located at the crossroads of several cultures. Slavonic, German (Austrian) and Jewish influences dominated Central European culture historically, resulting in a rich cultural heritage and lifestyle.

Studies and education in science, engineering, and medicine have a long history in the Czech Republic. Established in 1348, Charles University in Prague is the oldest university in Central Europe. Many students consider the Czech Republic to be their favorite destination because of its fairytale castles, chateaux, world-famous spas, breathtaking national parks and protected areas, historic cities and villages (many unchanged since medieval times) and legendary traditional cuisine. It’s easy to access some of the places of interest, thanks to the excellent public transit system. With longstanding reputations, unique ideas, and exciting specializations, Czech universities are second to none. More than 44,000 foreign students are studying at Czech higher education institutions, and their interest is increasing as foreign language study programmes (especially in English) are being offered
