What made you decide to study in Czechia?

Curiosity! Before I have made this decision, I didn’t know much about the Czech Republic. I started with the question, what if it’s a good choice? I spent a lot of time searching and answering my questions then I found out it’s more than a good choice, it’s really the #smartchoice for me!

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?

Quite yes! It's where you “learn” something not just study. Mendel University has 9 facilities if you're a student at one of them you can study any course from other facilities and departments which I found interesting and encouraging. An opportunity for more knowledge and skills.

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

Unique! On my first day in Prague, I asked myself if I had traveled here by time machine or by plane. It's a spectacular metropolis unlike any other. Then I moved to Brno, or I call it the integrated city. Transportation, shopping, restaurants, all services, and everything you need is around the corner! With affordable prices.

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

Friendship. Anywhere I travel now, I believe I will run into a buddy I met in the Czech Republic. Thanks to the Erasmus program, many amazing students visit us every semester. We spend a fantastic time together at parties and events, and trips and holidays left us with unforgettable memories. Also with fulltime students here, We are Family!

How do you think your time in Czechia has helped your studies and/or your career?

It's my leap! It becomes easier for you to keep going and getting well when you find yourself living in a constant trundle. Here, I gained knowledge, gained experience, and enhanced my plans.

Do you have any advice for students thinking about studying in Czechia?

We have a popular quote in Arabic that says: من سار على الدرب وصل. Means: Where's a will, there's a way. If you have the well, do it! Make the #smartchioce as I did. For any help you can reach out to me via Instagram: @TheGoodGuide_
