Study abroad

Are you thinking about doing a semester abroad? First, it's important to consider what you expect to gain from the experience and how it will fit in with your studies.

 

The process is as follows:

  • Read through the basic information.

    What and where? The Centre for International Cooperation (CZS) can help you decide.

  • Get advice.

    Getting familiar with all the options and programs isn't easy. Our advisor for internships and study abroad, Veronika Zapletalová, and student advisor, Jan Osička, are ready to help.

  • Give yourself sufficient time.

    Different scholarship programs have different deadlines. So start weighing your options as soon as possible.

  • Select a university and study plan.

    Be sure to review all available information about the teaching and evaluation of international students at the host institution.

  • Choose a suitable scholarship program.

    There are a plethora of options.
