We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic, situated near the centre of the country. There are eight public universities in Prague, along with several other higher education institutions and a large number of resident students.
As one of Europe’s oldest major cities, Prague has played an important role in various historical periods. In particular, the city was a major centre of the Holy Roman Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, retaining many significant buildings and heritage sites associated with these periods and powers. Prague Castle looms over the city, the largest ancient castle in the world and a beguiling collection of spires and towers that encompasses a range of architectural styles. The 14th-century Charles Bridge spanning the Vltava river is another big tourist attraction, lined with many baroque statues and monuments.
Postgraduate students in Prague benefit from living in one of Europe’s most renowned cultural centres. The city’s art and entertainment options range from national museums, theatres and opera houses (which have seen the debuts of works by famous classical composers) to busy modern nightclubs and live music venues. Prague has a proud literary tradition, with the modernist writer Franz Kafka born in the city and acclaimed novelist Milan Kundera spending his student years in Prague.
Prague is also becoming increasingly popular as a venue for international music events and has featured in plenty of Hollywood films. Beyond the city lies the opportunity to visit other parts of central Europe, including the wider Czech Republic as well as neighbouring Poland, Germany, Austria and Slovakia.
The oldest university in Prague, Charles University, was founded in 1347 by the Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia, Charles IV. It is the oldest university in central Europe and one of the highest ranked in the Czech Republic. Other historic institutions in the city include the Czech Technical University in Prague, which was originally founded in 1707 as one of the first specialist technology universities in Europe.
Prague is also home to several international providers and branch campuses, associated with European and American institutions such as New York University and Prague College.
Most courses are taught in Czech but many universities also offer English-taught Masters – especially internationally-focused institutions.
Prague has a vibrant, robust economy that plays an important role in the wider region of Central Europe, as well as the Czech Republic itself. It’s a major science and research centre, with the European Union’s Galileo satellite programme headquartered in the city.
