Integration Course Welcome to the Czech Republic (for students only!)

We would like to invite all international full-degree students to the ONLINE adaptation-integration course WELCOME TO THE CZECH REPUBLIC (for non-EU students only).

The course will provide you with important information for your stay in the Czech Republic - especially during the first months upon your arrival. You may ask questions concerning your residence legislation, visas, employment, housing, health insurance etc. The course is financed by the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic and is intended for newly arrived foreigners from non-EU countries. More information about the course and the organiser is available here.

The course is going to take place online and it will be held in English. It starts at 1pm and will last about 4 hours. The course is tailored for students' needs.
