Review on Charles University, PRG, CZ

Finland, Graduate
Area, Ethnic, and Cultural Studies, 2023
Overall
My specialization - Area studies - is great for those who find a liking in modern history, languages, politics, and such. I have graduated in 2020 and must say I liked the University environment a lot. The courses were well chosen to accommodate different interests and to be able to decide for a further specialization on Masters.

Management Science, 2024
Overall
I like studying this field of study. The faculty of sports is nice, the curriculum is wide. Classes are offered in fields of management, marketing, social science, sports, finance, economics and other.

The biggest downside is the orientation on theoretical knowledge, but I suppose that is the problem of education in Czech Republic.

I wish I had known...
I have this philosophy of no regrets. If I were to do it all over again, including all roadblocks, I would not change a thing. The excitement of not knowing anything, including what to expect and being lost in culture shock was such an intense and exhilarating experience. It's embedded in my heart and words can never suffice.

There's really no formula to studying abroad. It's really all up to you (the individual) to decipher what sort of journey you want to have. Obviously, your curiousity has brought you to this page. My only advice is this, wherever you go in life and on this planet, be like a 3D journal, each day an empty page. And let your surroundings, your thoughts, the people you encounter along your journey to color your pages with life, experience, and beauty. In the end, you can only look back and see a masterpiece.

Personal spending habits
Times have changed since I was there. The dollars value at that time was quite high and the exchange rate was great. Although my friends and I pretty much ate out the whole day, we still would spend less than a pricey dinner in the US. Basically, $100 lasted me a week and a half on eating out, nightlife, internet cafes, and miscellaneous knick knacks. Today, I'd probably have to watch what I'm actually spending.

Personal comments
Like most places, watch out for pick-pockets! They're good, quick, and pros! Just watch your bags on the metro and be smart! Don't carry too much cash with you and always have a copy of your ID stashed in your suitcase and one with your family in the US. Should that happen, it'll make your life easier. Like I said, it's a given and can happen anywhere. Do not let that discourage you from discovering and traveling because the benefits and enrichment of the experience can never be measured in dollar value.
