What made you decide to study in the Czech Republic?

I got the opportunity through Erasmus+ program. I'm a computer science student and in Czech Republic we have that environment, resources and guidance available to learn from the best professors and to learn the latest technologies that have been flourishing around the globe.

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?

I was in Czech Republic for only three months out of which starting 12 to 15 days were off due to vacations. But yes up to some extent, I was satisfied. All the instructors were very supportive and they tried their best to teach us. Yes the biggest difference that I noticed that in Czech study is more focused towards practical implementation of the theoretical knowledge.

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

I only knew English and there were very few locals who understood English. But to overcome this problem our university arranged a separate Czech language classes for us, that was the best part of my stay because there were students from different nations and interacting with them was really great.

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

Trekking to Lysa Hora mountain during one of the weekend was a great experience. Every weekend our instructor has something planned for us and we visited and experienced many new things.

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

I was doing my graduation in India when I came to Czech. I learned about the subjects of my field, like JAVA, Database, Theory Of Computation etc. Apart from this I also got to learn basics of Czech language. Overall its was good experience being there and I would definitely like to be part of it again.

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

If anyone is planning to study in Czech Republic, first he should find the best professor and university for subject in which he or she is intrested. And please learn the Czech language it would be of great help during your stay.
