Welcome Day for International Degree Students 2021

We are pleased to invite all international Bachelor´s, Master´s and Doctoral degree programmes students beginning their studies at Charles University in the academic year 2021/2022 to our Welcome Day.

During this day, you will have a chance to meet other international students, to find answers to your questions related to your studies at CU, to get acquainted with Charles University as a whole and to learn a bit more about the Czech culture. All new degree students are welcome!

As some of you are probably not able to join the event due to travel restrictions, class schedule or any other reason, you may watch the event online. You may screen the session later, too. If you already are in the Czech Republic, come and meet other international students who are starting their studies at CU. You may enjoy the programme in person and mingle.

Please note that this event is intended mainly for degree students rather than Erasmus exchange students. The individual CU faculties also have their own Orientation days/weeks that you should not miss.
