The fact that the cost of living is no so high and also it’s located in the center of Europe.

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?

There were many differences but I loved it! It was great to have multicultural lessons full of international people and diferentes points of view. Teachers were good too.

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

The price of things (very cheap) and how difficult is to learn the language.

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

To have the opportunity to make friends all over the world and live into a constant atmosphere of learning and growing.

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

It has given me the opportunity to learn new languages, to be more adaptable and flexible but overall to have a wider point of view.

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

Yes! Just do it! It is amazing to go somewhere completely different from our country and learn.
