Tips to navigate as an international student in Czech Republic

Ahoj! The Czech Republic is a wonderful country full of culture, history, and beauty. Did you know that it ranks as the seventh safest place to live in?

 

Tuition Fees

Studying in the Czech Republic is free of charge for citizens. International students who choose a program taught in English or another foreign language will pay tuition fees between 0 and 18,500 EUR per academic year.

Transport & Movement

Public transportation in the Czech Republic is cheap and efficient. There are buses, trams, and subways in major cities and towns, though the services may be more limited in rural areas. You can also use ride-sharing services like Uber, Bolt, and Liftago to get around.

Accommodation

If you are looking for student accommodation, they can vary depending on the town or city you reside in. In some cases, you can find people looking for roommates; some may be international students like yourself. These are usually shared common areas, for example, the kitchen, bathroom, and living room.

Food

Czech cuisine is hearty and delicious! From traditional dishes like goulash and dumplings to international cuisine, there’s something to suit all tastes. Don’t forget to try some of the local specialties such as trdelník (a sweet pastry), pivo (beer), and slivovice (plum brandy).
Albert & Lidl are going to be your best options due to their affordable prices and wide selection of traditional and international foods.

Clothing

The Czech Republic has a temperate climate, and the weather changes throughout the year. Make sure you’re prepared for all conditions by bringing a variety of clothing. Layering your clothes is the best way to stay comfortable in both summer and winter.

You can shop for quality clothes at Stradivarius, Bershka, Genesis, and The Prague Thrift Store cause we all love to go thrift shopping to get rare pieces and it’s one way to get good deals.

Weather

The summers in the Czech Republic are usually warm and sunny, while winters tend to be cold and damp. Spring and autumn are generally mild and pleasant. Make sure you come prepared for all seasons!

Social Life

There are plenty of international student groups, as well as a vibrant nightlife. Don’t be afraid to get out and explore the city – you never know who you may meet! Prague Castle is known as the ‘King Of All Castles’ due to its majestic nature, arrange a tour & you can enjoy this marvel as well as numerous other medieval buildings.

Work

If you’re looking to earn some extra money while studying in the Czech Republic, check if your university offers part-time jobs to international students or you can write up your CV to Czech Working Standards and apply for a job within the local business community.
