Student Ambassadors

About the programme

Active since 2018, the student ambassador's programme at Charles University brings together enthusiastic international students who seek further opportunities to represent their alma mater and to bring the international student community closer together. The project's core idea is collaboration, aiming to tighten the relationship between students, their university, and the city, hence improving the overall integration into the social and academic fabric.

Our ambassadors participate on future heading of the university or discuss and organise events for the students. They often represent Charles University during various events, from applicants to alumni, and collaborate with our social media team as content creators or bloggers. Some are more active as community leaders and work with local and international students to create more inclusive and interconnected environment. Therefore, the programme has two main axes: PR (representation and communication outside) and community building (inside).

You can contact our ambassadors if you would like to learn more about the student life, their reasons for choosing Charles University, the admission experience, or any other topic you have questions or doubts about.

Lucija Andjel


I come from Zagreb, Croatia. I have a master’s degree in animal genetics and breeding at the Faculty of Agriculture in Zagreb. I had three Erasmus experiences during my studies; one was in Prague (CULS), one in Vienna (BOKU), and the third one in Jaén, Spain (UJA). Now, I am a PhD student working on evolutionary biology at the Faculty of Science and, for three years, a student ambassador of CU. I love spending time in the countryside to recharge my working batteries. My hobbies include yoga, astronomy, and Netflix. My irrational dream is to rescue all the dogs in the world and give them a safe home (with me). I am always happy to talk about animals (especially dogs), nature, science, fun facts, space, cartoons, and food.

Why did I choose Charles University?

I chose CU for many reasons. To mention just a couple - it's located in Prague. At the beginning of my master's studies, I spent one semester here in Prague and completely fell in love with the city. From the impressive historical monuments, beautiful parks, and green spaces around every corner to the open-minded, welcoming Czech and international people who live here. It's no wonder it is the sixth most popular tourist destination (in the world!) and one of the best student cities in Europe! Another reason is that CU is the best and most presigeous Czech university. It is also one of the oldest universities in Europe, and with each year, it's becoming more and more international, ranking higher among the world universities.

What do I like about my studies in Czechia?

The Czech Republic has almost everything one could ask for. If you are a nature-loving person, you'll have the beautiful Czech countryside; if you prefer active trips, you can hike through wonderful national and natural parks, and if you like more relaxing walks, there are many greeneries and parks (sometimes with lakes) for a simple stroll. If you like history, you'll love it here, since Czechia is one of the most historical countries in Europe, especially its capital, Prague! Fun fact: Prague Castle is the third biggest castle in the world according to the Guinness World Record! :) Moreover, if you're a people person, there are many social events where you can enjoy the company of native Czechs and cosmopolitan international people alike. If you're an animal person, you will be pleased to know that it is an animal-loving country, especially if you're a dog person: dogs are allowed almost everywhere! If you're a beer lover, well, then you already know where to go. The only thing Czechia is missing is the sea. But do not fear, that is why their favourite summer destination is Croatia (my native country) so there is an excellent, fast transport services to get there. Whith that, you can have the perfect summer holiday!
