About Program

Cobblestone streets, ancient bridges, and a hilltop castle help lend the City of a Hundred Spires its reputation as one of the world’s most beautiful, brimming with architecture from every period and style in its millennial history.

Prague is unique in Europe, having shed its Communist past and brimming with carefully preserved monuments from every period and style in its millennial history. There’s plenty of quirky, too, like the Zizkov Tower adorned with climbing babies, and the distinctly nontraditional Dancing House.

Courses are available in English and Czech.

The Perfect City and a Great Program

Prague truly is the perfect place to study abroad, and CIEE is by far the best program in Prague. Classes are interesting but not too challenging and program coordinators are communicative and kind. Above all else, CIEE plans unique and free excursions. Some of my personal favorites include glass blowing and an overnight trip to Berlin.

Prague is an incredible city. It is centrally located and very cheap, as well as full of life and history. The nightlife and culture are both unmatched, which make for a great opportunity to meet other Americans studying abroad. There is something for everyone in Prague, as it is a large city full of different areas to explore. I could not imagine studying anywhere else.

  • No Friday classes
  • Cost of living is very cheap
  • Nightlife
  • Gloomy weather

Prague is a Hidden Gem

For me, Prague was the perfect city to study in and experience. It is perfectly centralized, making travel to other European countries very easy and accessible. The size of the city is big enough to never get bored, but also small enough to feel like a community/home. It is also super affordable with unique restaurants and night life. The perfect place to study abroad and CIEE is the perfect program as their activities and staff were amazing! They planned events that really submerged the students into the cultural and were very available and responsive to questions/concerns.

  • Affordable
  • Great public transportation
  • Beautiful
  • Frequently cloudy and rainy weather

January in Prague Czech Republic

My experience was unique due to the challenges covid posed with going abroad and at the time of my group arriving In January 2022 Prague had just finished another lockdown and at this point they were opening most businesses again. It was a wonderful experience because of the support of the staff. I think that Prague might be a nicer visit in the spring or summer but if you don’t mind the cold too much and pack warm, there is still plenty to do. The staff also had planned some well thought out day trips for us. There is not much traveling you can do since the program I did was only 3 weeks and covid makes it difficult to cross borders now without recent negative test results but getting to Prague itself wasn’t so hard. The day trips that we went on were often outside for the majority of the day in the cold so I recommend really packing lots of layers and being prepared to walk outside in cold, rainy, or snowy weather for a couple of hours at a time. I will say that the trips are very interesting and will keep you pretty engaged the whole time.

  • Very nice accommodations
  • Interesting culture and activities
  • Very safe city
  • Pack layers- more than you think
  • Not many excursions
  • Lack of access to travel during program because of length and covid

Great Program

I had a great time in the spring because of both Prague and the CIEE program. One of my favorite memories was the final party that CIEE threw for all of us at the end of the program. They really wanted all of us to have a great time and they ensured that we did by listening to everyones wants and needs for the semester and trying their hardest help. I felt that the housing of the program was awesome, I got to meet some of my closest friends in my building and had a great time being so close to all of them!

  • Great City
  • Great program
  • Easy travel
  • Hard to get the visa
  • Can be expensive to travel to some parts of Europe (small airport)

CIEE Summer Psychology in Prague

In summer 2022 I got the opportunity to study abroad in Prague, CZ through CIEE. I took two courses there; a social psychology course and an intro Czech language course. Everything about the program was seamless; CIEE employees greeted us at the airport, provided housing, had on-site orientation, and planned excursions and activities for everyone in the program. Every employee of CIEE that I interacted with was kind and went out of their way to make sure our needs were met. I would recommend CIEE to everyone!

  • Affordable City
  • Easy to Get Around
  • Great Food Options
  • Hilly

Central European Studies with CIEE

I cannot recommend the Prague CIEE program enough. The people in our program went from strangers to incredible friends in a few short months because of the intimate program CIEE created. The housing was in a safe, practical, and beautiful neighborhood that I pitched myself I got to live in every day. When any of us had a problem, every single person at CIEE was willing to drop anything to help us which took all the worry of directions, translating, and overall stress off of you as the student. CIEE staff made us feel at home in a foreign place and created an experience that absolutely changed my life.

  • Easy Transportation
  • Breathtaking artchitecture and history
  • Amazing nightlife
  • Heavy foods
  • Gets cold fast
