Its innumerable characteristic steeples have earned this UNESCO World Heritage site the nickname, “Hundred-Towered City.” Find out why it’s a perfect example of the steady development of a society transitioning from a communist past. With a population of only 1,200,000, Prague has an unusually rich cultural life, including festivals, operas, concerts, and cultural programs that students can experience like native Praguers.

Daily Life

  • HOUSING

    Shared Apartments: Housing is included in the study abroad program fee. Students reside in apartments in popular neighborhoods with fellow CIEE participants and a CIEE Flat Buddy - a Charles University student who helps CIEE students adjust to student life in Prague. Students share double rooms and kitchen and bathroom facilities.

    Apartments are located throughout Prague and commuting times and distances vary. It’s important for students to be aware that commuting is part of daily life in Prague, and the location of most apartments requires daily use of public transportation. It is common for the student commute, including public transportation and walking, to take up to 35 minutes one way. A transportation pass is included in the program fees.

  • MEALS

    Meals are not included and are the responsibility of the student. Students can purchase food supplies and prepare meals in the apartment kitchens.

    Summer classes are for CIEE students only.

In addition to in-class instruction, students can benefit from field trips, guest teachers, and other co-curricular events designed to supplement the course content and enhance student’s firsthand experience.

  • GRADING

    Students receive numerical grades which are converted to the U.S. letter grades. Assessment is continuous and is based on overall performance, including class participation, homework assignments, papers, presentations, projects and exams.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Students are expected to demonstrate their pro-active and independent approach to study. Active participation in class as well as outside of class is essential for a satisfactory academic performance and attendance is strictly enforced. Students should expect an average of two hours of preparation required for each hour in class. A class structure typically includes lectures as well as discussions and group projects.
