The Czech Republic is opened not only to foreigners, who think about studying here an entire study programme, but also for those, who want to spend here only a part of the study programme. There are many international projects, supporting an international mobility and operating also in the Czech Republic.
There is a range of institution (mostly working as detached departments of international organizations), which are engaged in international exchange scholarships and student mobility.
Erasmus Programme is an international project of European Union (EU). It is operated only in EU, Switzerland, Norway and Turkey. The programme is intended for the students, who have finished at least one academic year of higher education. They can choose from any university involved (for the list of those visit the website www.naep.cz (in Czech only)).
The students admitted to university can attend a short-term czech language course under the Erasmus Intensive Language Courses (EILC) (for more information see the website www.naep.cz).
In the Czech Republic, the Erasmus Programme is coordinated by National Agency for European Educational Programmes (NAEP).
Many czech higher education institutions offer also Master´s and Doctoral degree programmes realized within the framework of Erasmus Mundus Programme. Those last usually one, more often two years and are opened to the students from all over the world. The teaching language is mostly English. The studies take place at two or more partner universities, where one of them is student´s “home” university. The successful graduate are awarded a Joint Degree.
For the list of actually opened programmes, in which are the czech universities also involved, see the website www.naep.cz.
Note: Joint Degree programmes are not offered solely within Erasmus Mundus Programme. There are many others programmes, which ore opened separately, e.g. under the cooperation of two or more universities or within other specific projects.
CEEPUS Programme aims primarily at Joint Degrees or Joint Doctoral Degrees. It is dedicated only to the students from countries involved in the programme. Most of them belong to the Middle and Southeast Europe.
The Czech Republic is also involved in activities of the International Visegrad Fund, which helps students to gain a scholarship for studies at some of the czech universities .The programme is dedicated not only to the students from Visegrad Group countries (i.e. the Czech Republic, the Republic of Hungary, the Republic of Poland and the Slovak Republic), but also to the ones from some other European countries.
One of the programmes, which might also help to applicants thinking about studies in the Czech Republic, is International Student Exchange Programme (ISEP). One of its members is Masaryk University in Brno. The programme is dedicated to the students coming not only from the United States, but also from other countries or with the help of different organizations. The students from Middle Europe (but not only those) can also utilize the help of partial Central European Studies Program (CESP).
Very helpful can be also cooperation between two or more universities. For further information please contact the foreign studies department of your school.
