What made you decide to study in the Czech Republic?
The quality and the raking of the Faculties, because I have always wanted to take the best for my education, especially when it comes to lifelong commitment , as it is the future profession.
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?
Studying in Czech Republic its not an easy path to take , unless you want to have an education to be proud of and to make you feel very fond of your accomplishments in the future. All these comes with a lot of hardworking and you should be prepared for a serious commitment to Czech Faculties. Nothing comes easily but its all worth it.
What was the biggest surprise with regard to studying or living in the Czech Republic?
The biggest surprise for me was that after the preparation year I had to take entrance exams in each Faculty I wanted to study. I was not informed about that in my country when I applied for study visa, back in 2005.
What was your most memorable experience or what did you enjoy most as a student in the Czech Republic?
I love Czech Republic and I still go there min.3 times per year. I studied physiotherapy so I still do professional courses and of course meet a lot of lovely people I met at faculty, who turned to be like a family to me! So, during my studies I got to know amazing people that didn't see me as a foreigner but helped me so much to be integrated in czech society!
How do you think your time in the Czech Republic has helped your studies and/or your career?
As I mentioned in my motto: "Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment." I have always been accepted in every working place I applied to, ( lecturer in Faculty) due to my CV and always the commissions valued the fact that I studied Charles University in Prague. I am also a physiotherapist having my own clinic, and the fact that I studied in Czech Republic made my patients having more faith in my professional skills as a physio.
Do you have any advice for students thinking about studying in the Czech Republic?
If you decide to study in Czech Republic, you should be prepared to work hard hard hard and be sure that will all be rewarded in the future! Studying years are decisive in ones life, so go for the best!
