Inbound Exchange Student Information

Incoming Exchange Students - Welcome!

UNYP itself is quite internationally diverse. Our students come from over 65 different countries, our instructors from over 30 different countries, and our small class sizes provide an open environment for the exchange of ideas and perspectives.

To further our global mindset UNYP has continued to expand its global mindset through partnerships with over 70 institutions worldwide.  We warmly welcome exchange students from our partner institutions to join and enrich our community.  

You can only study under the Exchange program if your home University has a valid Exchange agreement with UNYP. You can find a list of our Exchange partners below. If we do not hold an Exchange agreement with your home University, you may be able to come to the University of New York in Prague on a fee-paying basis, as a Study Abroad student.
