Student Clubs & Activities

 

It isn’t all books and lectures here at the University of New York in Prague!

Whether you’re an aspiring Messi, a budding debate champion, a star of the small screen or you prefer the life of the mind, you’ll find friends at UNYP with similar tastes.

Here are a few possibilities.

  • Debating Society

     

    The Debating Society is one of the leading academic clubs at UNYP. Upon its re-establishment in 2015, it has managed to achieve a great success.

    You do not only develop your public speaking skills and build up valid arguments, but you also get to learn quite a lot about various issues in the world.

    Students debate about the hot topics in the news as well as what is close to their interests. The UNYP Debating Society also closely collaborates with the MUNYP and has been involved in a number of international competitions.

  • Model United Nations at UNYP


    MUNYP has emerged as an initiative for creating a platform for young scholars interested in international relations to discuss global current affairs.

    Since Fall 2015, our club has grown considerably in size, with students showing dedication, passion and enthusiasm in meetings and their increasing interest in participating in domestic or international model UN conferences.

    In 2018 we grew even further, by holding our first conference at the university. Since then our yearly international high school conference has grown to an outstanding group of 115 students from many different countries. And we look forward to hosting many more successful conference in the future.

  • Communication Studies Society

     

    Welcome to the Communication Studies Society!

    The Communication Studies Society is intended to provide a forum for interaction and exploration among the UNYP community interested in communication and media issues. Specifically, the aim is to take issues out of the classroom and seek answers by engaging with the sources!

    We want to go places, see things, ask questions, and be permanently out of the box!

    What does that mean?

    • Ever wonder how some companies get away with misleading advertising? Attending a meeting at the Council for Radio and TV Broadcasting can provide insight. Feel that journalists are contributing to negative feelings in society with their stories about refugees? Visiting major news organizations like CNN or Reuters and asking journalists could be a solution.
    • Want to work at Disney? Google? Ogilvy? Our Communication Alumni are at the best companies and can tell you what it is like.
    • Want to do some academic research to help you get into a good grad school? Let’s put on a conference! Want to meet communication students from other Czech universities and compare what you study? Why not set up an exchange and share ideas!

    Come to our meetings and let’s share ideas about what we are interested in, and how to go about taking our curiosity out of the classroom and into the wider community.
