English-Language Graduate Studies in Prague
Several Prague universities offer master's and doctorate programs suitable for expatriates working in the city
Charles University (Univerzita Karlova) and its related faculties -- the law faculty, philosophy faculty, etc. -- offer a multitude of master's and doctoral programs. For more information on English-language courses, see the Charles University website.
The University of Economics, Prague (Vysoká škola ekonomická v Praze), meanwhile, offers many programs in conjunction with international universities, at both the master's and doctoral level. For more information, see the VŠE website.
Although these two schools cover a wide range of graduate programs, their courses are mostly full-time, multiple-year study programs -- bad news for anyone who has to work.
Many of the graduate programs presented here are more flexible, business-related courses, such as MBAs and human resources qualifications, geared towards professionals with exacting schedules.
Issues such as visa requirements, accreditation, scholarships and financial aid differ from school to school. For more information, see the Ryan Scott article Studying in the Czech Republic.
The table below provides information on the universities, colleges and institutes in Prague catering for international students and to professionals who want to study in English.
Please note that the information presented here is subject to (often ridiculous) changes. Remember my motto: "When dealing with [insert expletive + word] in the Czech Republic, it's never the same story twice."
But because the schools listed below frequently work with international institutions, you may have better luck finding someone capable of providing you with accurate information.
