What made you decide to study in the Czech Republic?

I decided to study Czech Republic because I think that it’s a good, nice and safe country. And also I believe in their school system that they can help me to become who I want to be in the future.

Did your studies meet your expectations? How did you find the study programme, instructors, university facilities? Were there any differences from studying in your country?

The study program is really good, the school facilities is nice and modern, we have time for studying and relaxing. I also love all the teachers here because they are really nice and they really try to help the students when we need.

What was the biggest surprise with regard to studying or living in the Czech Republic?

I feel so happy that most people in Czech Republic they are so friendly and they really try to help foreigners when they need help.

What was your most memorable experience or what did you enjoy most as a student in the Czech Republic?

The most memorable experience I have had is the first day I stepped into Czech Republic, I feel like I just open my new page of myself. I see and learn lots of new things that I never learn before. I meet many new good friends from any other countries, different religions and we help and learn from each other. It is also my first time seeing snow in my life, it’s so beautiful I cannot forget that moment.

How do you think your time in the Czech Republic has helped your studies and/or your career?

When I arrive here I know that I have to manage my schedule so well in order to get a better work done on time. I learn how to manage my timetable, when I have to study, when I have to take some break, when I have to prepare my homework and it really helps me a lot in my study.

Do you have any advice for students thinking about studying in the Czech Republic?

For the students who want to come to Czech Republic for studying but still hesitate whether it’s good or not? I recommend you guys to come, try it and don’t hesitate because it’s a really good and nice country and it’s in the center of Europe. During the weekend you can just take some break and travel to the neighbour country, it takes only just 2-3 hours to get to another country and I’m sure you will enjoy it.
