Personal recommendation
One of the best experiences of my life. The University were really good to us. I met lots of wonderful people from all over the world and did many activities that I would never have had the chance to do at home. Academically, things will improove for the Erasmus programme as Charles University has some of the best lectures and students in the world. Staff were very helpful. Czech students are generally quite reserved and shy and it can be quite hard to make friends. Being a foreign student put you in a very positive financial situation and you have to be sensitive to locals and students, compared to their financial situation.

Final comments
Staff were very helpful and friendly at the University. Czech people could be describe as generally quite reserved and quite difficult to get to know, but you will meet some really nice locals. Prague is a beautiful city but is becoming more and more commercial. Be aware of the centre for rip off prices and rudeness. Also sleaze is on the increase with the influx of the rich western tourist. Despite that Prague still is a vibrant city so much to do. I have met people from all over the world who I will stay in contact with forever. Prague created a community in the true sense of what the European Community and of course, the Erasmus programme set out to achieve. Bonding and interacting from all over Europe and the world. It was such an amazing experience. I would recommend it to everyone. It will really change you life!!

I wish I had known...
I wish I knew how difficult it would be to meet locals. Meeting people while traveling was easy, such as in hostels, bars, and on tours, but in Prague, the complexity of the culture as well as the language barrier prevented a meeting more locals.

Personal recommendation
Don't expect a very rigorous course of study, as the English-speaking department is rather new and not the focus of the university. Take classes that you might not take -- art history, theatre -- to experience Czech culture.

Go to Berlin -- 4 hours from Prague. Europe is still cold in May, so bring a warm jacket.

Faculty of liberal arts and humanities
Jacqueline B
Czech Republic, Undergraduate
Humanities, 2021
Overall
UK is a university offering various fields of study. Faculty of liberal arts and humanities offers a wide range of courses, usually in smaller groups up to 30 people, in order to give us the most personal approach possible. A big level of liberty and space for personal growth. Teachers are very down to earth, eager to help any student with any school-related task but very proffesinoal as well. The atmosphere of this faculty is very friendly.
Read more >
Pros
liberty, friendly approach, big number of offered courses, ideal for personal growth
Cons
for undecided people the liberty tends to be overwhelming, slight chaos with organisation among teachers, each course is very different - very different requirements for passing subjects
