Study Abroad

 

About Prague

Prague is an ancient crossroads of culture, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, and still a little off the beaten path for many.  Prague’s cobblestoned streets, lined with colorful and ornate 19th century buildings, will lead you to countless cafés, museums, galleries, shops, parks, and monuments.  In Prague you will find an incredible blend of old and new, a rich history that is right before your eyes. 

Not only is Prague famously beautiful, it is also very safe.  The Global Peace Index ranked the Czech Republic as the 6th safest country in the world in their 2016 report.

The city of Prague provides an excellent environment to live in, to learn in, and to expand your horizons in.  Best of all, UNYP is located right in the heart of this wonderful city!

About UNYP

At UNYP, all of the classes are taught in English. Study alongside other UNYP and study abroad students in courses within Business Administration, Communication & Mass Media, International & Economic Relations, Psychology, and a wide range of courses in the social sciences, humanities, economics, finance, and arts.  UNYP’s courses and degrees are accredited by American, Czech and British accreditation authorities.

UNYP’s internationally diverse faculty is made up of 125 members from 25 different countries.  With an overall student population of approximately 1,000 students from over 60 different countries, UNYP also boasts a very international student body.  In addition, a 1:9 faculty to student ratio offers small class sizes to emphasize dynamic and engaged learning.  Student clubs offer the opportunity to get involved outside of the classroom and to make an impact on the Czech community.

UNYP’s campus is situated in Vinohrady - a quiet, upscale neighborhood in central Prague.  Our facilities combine 19th-century architectural charm with 21st-century teaching and technology, and a full university administration is dedicated to supporting its students to the highest possible standard.

Students who study abroad at UNYP jump right into this vibrant community, and the UNYP community welcomes them warmly.
