Living in Prague
Prague is a city where tradition meets modernity. Filled with Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings, towering spires, and historic squares, Prague has been masterfully preserved over the centuries and remains a quintessential European city. However, Prague has also evolved into a hub of 21st century innovation in recent years, with its many shopping streets providing passersby with a range of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Visit Prague Castle to see how the Kings of Bohemia lived and spend some time in Old Town Square, often considered the gold standard of traditional European squares. There is so much to do and see in Prague and the CEVRO Institute is located right in the heart of the city, providing easy access to all of Prague’s major sights and attractions.
Potential to Travel
Prague truly is the heart of Europe. A train or bus ride of just a few hours will transport you to other historic cities such as Vienna, Budapest, and Berlin. At the CEVRO Institute, opportunities abound to travel and experience the range of cultures that exist throughout Europe.
The entry requirements for gap year students are not tough. Send us a letter of motivation in which you explain why would you like to come to CEVRO Institite as gap year student.
The academic year is divided into 3 trimesters: fall term, spring term and summer term. The fall term lasts approximately from the end of September to mid-February. The spring term lasts roughly from mid-February to mid-June. The summer term lasts from mid-June to the end September. Each semester has a lecture period (first 12 weeks) in which students attend lectures (The lecture period of the fall term hence ends before the Christmas break.) The spring and fall terms have also a 6-week-long exam period for which there are no more lectures as students will be preparing for the exams and working on their papers. (Lectures in the summer term are not delivered in a weekly regime and the term does not have an extra exam period.)
