There is much more to university life than simply attending class.  Connecting with your peers and with your passions through extra-curricular activities can, together with your academic experience, give you the tools and experiences you will need to thrive as a person during and after your university experience.

UNYP has a number of student clubs and special interest groups that you can become involved with – from the dance club to the Psychology club.  And if you would like to start a new student club we are happy to help you with this! 

Every week at UNYP there are events and activities organized by UNYP’s student clubs and academic departments that welcome your participation.

*Please note – all UNYP student clubs and special interest groups are open only to students currently enrolled at UNYP.  Participation in all student clubs and special interest groups are included in the UNYP Student Body Fee – meaning that there is no additional out-of-pocket costs for UNYP students to join.

At UNYP All Stars, we believe everybody is a star and so we encourage everyone to express and share their interest in dance. We create videos, choreographies, and performances for UNYP and our viewers!

To make things even more interesting we give you an experience of the different dance styles from around the world!

Sign up for UNYP all stars and be welcome to the world of dance!

WHEN: Wednesdays, 19:00 – 20:00

WHERE: Polská 2400/1a, Praha 2, 120 00 – B.D.S. Academy
