About Czech Republic
Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic (or Czechia), is a beautiful city and a must-see tourist destination in Europe.

Degrees conferred by Czech universities are recognized throughout the EU thanks to the Bologna Process. Czech universities are among the most prestigious in the region.
The number of English-taught bachelor’s and master’s programs in Czechia is growing, as is the number of international students, with approximately 50,000 students from Europe and around the world currently enrolled.

One of the best reasons to study in the Czech Republic is its excellent educational system. The high quality and tradition of Czech education and research are widely acknowledged, particularly when studying Science, Engineering, or Medicine in the Czech Republic.
The Czech Republic’s law states that no matter what your nationality, you are not required to pay any tuition fees to take a course at a public or state institution that is exclusively taught in Czech.
There are no additional enrollment fees unless you choose to study longer than the allotted time, enrol in a different course than the one you first enrolled for, or learn a language other than Czech.
Even if you choose a private university over a public university with free tuition, the costs will be lower when compared to other countries with comparable educational reputations. Private institutions set their tuition, which can range from 2,000 to 15,000 USD per year, depending on the course and university.
Living in the Czech Republic is less expensive than in other European countries, particularly in comparison to the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. Daily costs, ranging from food and lodging to public transportation and personal spending, are reasonable and, on average, lower than in the rest of Western Europe.
The Czech Republic is one of the top ten safest countries in the world, according to the Global Peace Index. The Czech Republic is generally safe for all age groups, regardless of gender, nationality, or religion.
