What made you decide to study in the Czech Republic?

Being a central node in this European network of cities, routes and ideas, I knew that studying in Czech Republic would expose me to a unique diversity of people and culture and provide me with the ability to travel easily around the area. This lead me to choose to study in Czech Republic.

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?

ofcourse, I could meet my studies better than what i expected in Czech Republic. First 6 months of the Czech language is very difficult for Asian people like me. But it was a great experience ever I've made. I've learned a lot from difficulties. Mostly they also have a student buddy programme. The programme made sure that all of us ( the international students) were assigned with a student buddy to help us out in this new experience. It was really helpful in becoming more aware and involved in all the things. I am also very happy and grateful to all the faculty members/teachers, instructors who taught us and shared their immense knowledge with us. It was a very fulfilling experience. As a part of the course I had opted Italy for my internship and I am happy to say that I had the most wonderful times during the internship, with a great learning experience and also being a part of such rich culture. Mostly quality of a higher education system is really different from my country.
