Brno is a great place to live, even if just for a short period of time. As a student city (1/5 of the population are students) and an international city there is always something to do, and the Czech language isn’t a barrier. This means that exploring cafes, teahouses, restaurants and the local sites is easy, even without our amazing assistants. However, because we want you to get the most out of your experience, we have a team of local Czech students to show you their favorite things in Brno!
The team of professional and local students provides the 24/7 assistance from the practical and safety arrangements to creating a rich cultural program helping the participants to understand better culture of Moravia and Central Europe in general. This support is provided both in Brno, as well as on all the field trip. Moreover the staff is trying to assist with creating social activities that aims at enhancing the mutual cultural exchange and understanding.
Students in this program are housed in one of our Residence Halls where both international and Czech students live during the school year. This is a great opportunity to see how student housing is different all around the world (or is similar, depending on what country you are from!). In Brno, students share a room with one other student.
Bedding is provided; however, students should bring their own towels. Students will have an opportunity to cook their own meals, some cooking supplies will be provided, as supplies last.
On the field trip, accommodation is arranged at a basic tourist hut. For two nights, students and instructors will be sharing one large room. Bathrooms with showers and hot water are separate for female and male users. Kitchen with cooking utensils is available so students can cook their own meals.
Please follow this link and choose the correct programme. Do not forget to include all the necessary information (and documents if requested) including writing a short statement of purpose. We will contact you afterwards to tell you if your application was successful and to discuss the further steps (including the deposit payment) with you.
