1 academic year Czech Language, CTU

Foundation Czech Language Program is held in the Czech Technical University in Prague. It is focused on deep study and practical application of Czech and English languages, familiarization with the Czech Republic and its culture. The program is designed to meet the requirements of entrance examinations to public universities of the Czech Republic. ČVUT is accredited by the Ministry of Education of the Czech Republic in the “Czech language for foreigners” program. After the successful completion of the courses students receive a certificate of Czech language level.

The MSM Academy recommends that students participate in the 1-year foundation course because during this year they have an opportunity to learn Czech language well in Prague and get used to life in Europe. The cost of the program will further be compensated by free education in Czech state universities. It is also worth noting that the study of Czech language at a 1-year foundation course ensures admission to the Czech public universities. Czech language courses are taught by experienced teachers and professors from ČVUT.

Czech Technical University in Prague is a strong center of education and knowledge and one of the oldest technical universities in the whole world. It offers a wide range of majors in computer systems, architecture, engineering, chemistry and much more. It prepares specialists and scientists in technical fields as well as in every possible way develops activities in the scientific, educational and technical fields. Learning Czech language in ČVUT will allow students to immediately get acquainted with the peculiarities of the university, examination process and structure of education.

Besides Czech language students in small groups (about 17 students) study English language which will be an additional advantage when they apply to the university. Not only is it an additional benefit for admission, but it also greatly facilitates learning at an early stage in the university.
