Services

Student services

If you came here for a short term mobility - 1 or 2 semesters, the International Student Club can help you especially at the beginning of your stay to settle in new environment. Later on, you can take part in the trips and social events ISC organises for all international students or join various language courses.

Housing services

Approximately 8,000 local and international students are accommodated each year in the CTU dormitories. Rule number one is that each new student shall be offered a place/bed. The accommodation is mainly in shared rooms, and it is not possible to apply for a separate single room at the beginning of the year. In response to many requests for single accommodation, we have tried to find a solution. If you wish to live on your own and there is no single room available, there is an option of getting a double room in a university dormitory for 1½ times the price for a bed in a double room.

Library services

National Library of Technology - with its 1.2 million volumes, the library on the university campus offers excellent study resources for the whole country. Each faculty building has study rooms and quiet learning areas with a free INTERNET connection. The university publishes inexpensive study notes, which are available at the bookstore in the National Technical Library.

The Faculty of Biomedical Engineering is located in Kladno, 30 km north-west of Prague.

Not for taking practical skills
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

As the physiotherapy is the profession which requires to have practical skills, the part of our studies, where we have practical classes, is less than 10%

Pretty good and familiar university
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

The theoretical lessons are very handful and overall the programme teaches you a lot during a short period of time, you just need to adapt to the fact it really is time consuming - you spend most of the week at the school, but on the other hand you learn a lot, both from the practical and theoretical side. What I expected to be different is that we try to work witj more...

The university is great, but it could be better implementing more activities for international students.
