Study in Czech Republic

Situated in Central Europe with Germany to the North, Austria to the South and Poland to the East the Czech Republic is a developed county and its commitment to the provision of high quality services and efficiency is apparent once you arrive in the country. A very popular destination with people from all walks of life the country separated into three geographical regions, Bohemia, Moravia and Czech Silesia.

Most visitors to the Czech Republic do not venture far from the capital city of Prague but there are so many hidden gems in the country. The Bohemian city of Plzeň is famous for its brewery and is considered the spiritual home of pilsner beer. The Moravian city of Brno, posesses some amazing architecture including Špilberk castle and the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul. The former capital of Moravia Olomouc, while smaller than the other popular cities, is famous for its beautiful central square, an astronomical clock that was built under the communist period and is home to the Moravian Philharmonic.

The Czech Republic is a progressive country and Czechs are very proud of their freedoms and secular outlook on life. This philosophy is very prevalent in the education system. The Czech Republic is considered to have one of the best education systems in the world, especially in the field of medicine, dentistry and health sciences. Charles University 1st Faculty of Medicine is one of the oldest medical faculties in the world and also one of the most popular places to purse medical studies. Staying in Prague Charles University 2nd Faculty of Medicine embeds their education in the setting on the Motol Hospital. Brno is home to Masaryk University named after the first president of Czechoslovakia Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk. Brno is also home to Czech Republic’s only School of Veterinary Medicine, UVPS. Olomouc is arguably Europe’s “Student City” as roughly twenty percent of the town’s population are students. Palacký University’s Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry is regarded as a world leading institution whose most famous graduate, Bohdan Pomahač, led the USA’s first full face transplant.

Those who are determined to succeed in their studies choose the Czech Republic because of its commitment to quality and excellence but also sue to the great environment offered by one of Europe’s most progressive and exciting countries.
