The Welcome Activities at Prague College are your first chance to meet the Prague College community — staff, lecturers and fellow students — to learn more about studying at Prague College, and to become familiar with the college and the city. 

Our staff and students will be on hand to provide useful information on living in Prague, getting around, dealing with any problems, and fitting in with life in general.

Welcome Activities & The Digital Campus 

The September 2020 semester will be unlike we've ever had before! We're excited to use our new technology and find new ways to interact with our students in the hybrid format (online and in person). With that, it's important to anticipate a few changes and have a bit of extra patience while we experience this new approach together! Below are a few important links and information that will help you get prepared for the weeks ahead:

Orientation Day is your big welcome to Prague College! This is a fun day that allows you to meet new friends, learn about the school, and explore the neighbourhood around the college. 

Your Academic Programme Induction will provide you with detailed information about the courses you will be taking, the grading system, the expectations from lecturers, and much more. This is also the time to meet your Programme Leader and fellow classmates!

It is highly recommended that all new students be sure to attend the Orientation Day and your Academic Programme Induction. Attending both of these days will provide you with all of the information you need to make your transition to Prague College as easy as possible.
