Our students say:
I think Prague is a great city. I like it for being so multicultural, friendly and sort of cozy. It's a perfect place for a student. When I first moved here, Prague was easy to explore, and I met lots of amazing people who helped me a lot. I don’t find the language barrier too difficult; all my friends speak English, as well as everyone at Prague College. Overall, I find Prague a really nice place and would like to stay here for a little while." (Nina, Russia)

Cost of Living
Prague is considered a very affordable city. You will find that the prices of food and transport are considerably lower than in most European capital cities. You can compare your cost of living here.
In the Czech Republic, the weather is seasonal and moderate, and with a landscape of mountains and forests you can enjoy skiing in the winter as well as camping and biking in the summer.
It's relatively easy to find part-time work while studying, as well as full-time jobs on completion of a programme. International and local companies are keen to hire candidates who speak English and other languages and who come with the right qualifications, and many Prague College students find placements through our Industry Network.
Prague has an extensive and well-organized public transport system that can quickly get you anywhere in the city. Trams are the most popular form of transport, running non-stop throughout the day and night. With the same ticket or pass, you can also ride buses and the three lines of the easily navigable metro system. The modern airport and multiple rail terminals offer easy access to the city, and the opportunity to explore the rest of Europe.
Prague has very low crime rates and is considered a safe place to live. Both our student residence and the college campuses provide a safe and secure environment for living and study.
