Charles University is nestled among Prague’s winding streets, charming red rooftops and sweeping bridges. The campus is in the heart of the city, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and parks. As a student in our Semester in Prague – Charles University Program,  you’ll have access to courses in Literature, Art & Culture, History, Sociology, and Psychology, Economics & Politics, and languages. Enjoy the university’s thriving student life and international clubs, and easily be able to travel to other European hotspots – on a budget.

  • Study at the top-ranked university in the Czech Republic
  • Join one of the university's 30+ student organizations
  • Easy access to other European countries, especially Hungary, Germany, Austria, and Poland
  • Participate in one of several city-wide sports competitions between the city's universities: a team marathon, rowing competition, and an ice hockey competition
  • Overnight excursion to the Czech countryside

Academics:
Located in the heart of beautiful Prague, Charles University is one of the oldest universities in the world (founded in 1348) and the top-ranked university in the Czech Republic. Nearly 50,000 students are enrolled in more than 300 accredited degree programmes. Renowned for its commitment to research, Charles University can boast a number of outstanding research teams which are involved in close collaboration with international research institutions. Students can also become involved in the University’s research work at each of the individual faculties.  

Outside of the classroom, students can take advantage of the college’s 30+ student associations (including drama and music societies) and participate in several city-wide sports competitions alongside their Czech peers. There’s an annual team marathon, a rowing and an ice hockey competition between the city’s universities, a summer sports program for students with disabilities, and more. For those looking to sit back and relax, check out the Tuesday night film screenings in the Blue Auditorium and get sneak peeks at films before their official release!


Highlights of Local Life:
  • Farmers Markets: Visit any one of the numerous farmers markets that take place around the city most weekends in the warmer months. Or venture out to Naplavka, the recently renovated riverbank close to the city center where you’ll find crowds of locals, expats and tourists alike out for a walk, bike ride or shopping. Even if you’re just relaxing with a drink and taking in an open air concert, Naplavka is always great fun.
  • Sports events: Take in a hockey or football game by Prague's local team, “Sparta Praha.”
    Escape Room: A popular pastime all over the world, this new trendy game involves working as a team to solve puzzles and decoding hints to escape/exit the room before the hour is up.
  • Cooking classes: Learn to cook a traditional three-course Czech meal and then feast on it with your fellow cooks!
  • Beer Garden: There is no shortage of these popular “watering holes” both inside and outside Prague. However, arguably, the best beer garden in Prague with views overlooking the city is Letna Beer Gardens. The beer garden offers plentiful seating, picnic tables under the trees and under canopies beside Letenske Zamecek. They have both beer and cider on tap as well as hot food and snacks.
