Teaching and Learning at Prague College
Your experience at university is defined by what happens in the classroom, your engagement with lecturers and fellow students, and the interaction we mediate with experts from the wider world of work in your field of study. Here are some of the most frequent questions we are asked about what it is like to study at Prague College.
How big are your classes?
We keep our class sizes small, with an average of 12 students in Fine Art, Graphic Design and Computing; and 18 in Business Management, Accounting and Media. This allows you to engage directly with our experienced international lecturers, and to go further than you could in other universities.
What makes Prague College special?
All our lecturers take an interactive approach to teaching that focuses on the individual student’s needs. This approach to teaching and learning creates a challenging but caring environment that allows students to explore, create, and test themselves and their ideas in a safe place.
Throughout your studies you develop great knowledge and acquire a wide range of skills.
What do current students think about their classes?
These are just a few of the quotes from our latest Student Satisfaction Survey (2016) showing appreciation for the special environment we have created together with our students over the years:
"I love that we can speak to lecturers as other human beings, not just as professors or lecturers. Lecturers really make sure students understand the course.""[The college has] very good teachers who give relevant advice and helped me to develop my work and myself as a creative thinker."
"My classes are structured and run by people who are clearly passionate about their work. And all the other staff are supportive and helpful and I never feel lost and looking at a dead end."
"The lecturers are very helpful and nice!!! … They can really motivate you to ... work harder and they give you very good feedback, which helps you to improve your design and skills. They are also always there where you need them! “
“A friendly and helpful environment created by staff and teachers. Teachers are often willing to give one a second chance if one deserves it. Most teachers are always willing to answer one's questions and point to a specific direction if asked.’
What about preparing me for the world of work or further study?
In addition to lectures, our students also work directly with real companies and employers. In this way, they get to experience first-hand the challenges of the workplace and gain real experience while studying. This approach has been crucial to the success of our graduates.
This is Peter Virsik, managing director of adidas CEE:
Vít Horký, founder of international social media company, Brand Embassy, knows how important that is:
"Our partnership with Prague College allows us to work with an incredibly diverse multi-cultural set of students. It allows us to have an open and honest dialogue inside and outside the classroom through lectures and special events. In this way, students learn from our senior management, but equally, it allows us to learn from them... Today’s generation is innovative, creative and has a sense of social responsibility. They drive change and have enabled us to become one of Europe’s most desirable employers."
The reason we are told that employers trust Prague College graduates is that they come with a real set of skills, experience of the workplace and the knowledge to accomplish the tasks and goals of the organisation. This all gives them a distinct edge when applying for jobs or entering a new career.
"As an alumnus of Prague College’s International Management programme, I know — having employed three of them — that I can trust graduates from one of the best universities in the CEE region."
