What made you decide to study in the Czech Republic?
Czech Republic is in the heart of Europe with a great history and culture.Educational system is not expensive,even for foreigners but it has a high quality.
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?
It doesn't differ very much from my country,I didn't even have to take nostrification exams of my diplomas from my home country.But it certainly did meet my expectations and I am really glad that my instructors had understanding that I am a foreigner and don't speak Czech fluently,since I studied it only for about 6 months before I started taking courses at my university.
What was the biggest surprise with regard to studying or living in the Czech Republic?
I really liked and was surprised by the fact that lectures are not mandatory so you can take a part-time job,if you are able to learn everything on seminars.
What was your most memorable experience or what did you enjoy most as a student in the Czech Republic?
My biggest fear and later enjoyable experience was assimilating to my new university and friends.Many people didn't even know that I was a foreigner for a long time ,and the reason how they figured it out is probably my not so fluent Czech language.But they accepted me like I was one of them which was really cool.
How do you think your time in the Czech Republic has helped your studies and/or your career?
I think that it is a one step further in my life,that it gave me a big chance to make some great things in my future.Czech Republic is in European Union and I would like to stay in EU so studying here was a chance that I happily took.
Do you have any advice for students thinking about studying in the Czech Republic?
Do not hesistate and come ! Some of the best moments of my life happened here.It is not easy to leave your home at first,but trust me after some time you will become a greater and independant person.And Czech Republic has everything you need to help your personal growth.
