The Czech Republic Alumni programme is a national programme aimed at foreign alumni, who have studied at a Czech higher education institution. The programme's aim is to foster a relationship between the Czech Republic and its international alumni in order to support the internationalization of Czech higher education, strengthen the image of the Czech Republic abroad, mediate job opportunities and connections between foreign alumni and Czech public and private sector.
