Studying abroad in Prague was surreal. The city is absolutely beautiful & culturally rich & along with that, almost everything is cheap. Beers are legit $1< for half a liter at grocery stores.
There are three different apartment buildings. Two of them are in a prime location right on top of one of the most central metro stations in the city, and the other apartment is about a 15-minute walk uphill from these two apartments. Overall, the apartments are in a great location right in the heart of the city, walking distance from the most popular clubs, bars, restaurants, and attractions. As for the interior of the apartments, they’re hit or miss. Some flats are nice and some are not so nice, but for the most part, they are cozy and easily livable. Big rooms and high ceilings, can’t complain about that.
All of the courses take place at one specific building and you will only be taking classes with the people in the program, so class sizes can vary from 3 people to 30. Some might complain that you don’t get to interact with Czech students, but that’s not an issue as long as you’re socially active. The academics in the program are not very challenging, to say the least, but are still very educational. If you pick the right classes you will have absolutely no school work & will be able to travel & party all week.
I can’t emphasize how important it is to make friends with a majority of the program & go out frequently together. Not only is nightlife cheap, but it’s fun. You’ll seriously regret it if you shelter yourself the whole semester. The friendships & bonds made will be well worth it.
I tried to sum up the things most are curious about that aren’t talked about or are hard to find info on, so I hope it helps.
Just don’t be a loser. Have fun. You’re young and only in Prague once.
