 for international students


Dear International Students,

Dear international students,

We hope you enjoyed both the Walpurgis Night and Labor Day holidays! You should now be well-rested and full of fresh energy! Although the exam period is now creeping over the horizon again, the semester is not over yet! That's why we'd like to bring your attention to several upcoming events organized by the university and student associations.

You can take part in a variety of sports activities – from the Rector's Sports Day on May 10 to the sports tournament and charity run organised by the ESN Prague.

We wish you an eventful May and a successful start to the exam period!
