School of Education

The School of Education offers a Czech Bachelor's degree in teaching English as a foreign language. The programme focuses both on English as a specialization and the disciplines related to communication in this language, as well as linguo-didactic training and teaching practice.

In addition, the School of Education offers programmes accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education as part of the Further Education of Teachers (DVVP) project. These enable applicants with existing teaching qualifications to teach English; or (in the case of a Master's degree) to teach English as a foreign language at primary and secondary schools.




The facilities are modern, bright and quiet; at PCU you study in world-class conditions. Great software, classrooms with plasma screens and projectors, Mac and PC computer labs, campus wi-fi, student workrooms, a library, and both indoor and outdoor refreshment areas all contribute to a highly enjoyable educational experience. With our large digital library (over 54,000 books covering dozens of subject areas, including business, IT computing, humanities, art and multimedia) and an on-line learning center, students can continue to work outside the college, when and where they like.

The Bishop's Court campus is a dedicated art and design studio providing a dynamic space for classes, exhibitions and workshops.

Fine Art students also have access to studio space at Pragovka, located in the developing district of Vysočany in Prague 9.

Tuition Fees:

Annual tuition fees for Bachelor's degrees are CZK195,800 (approx £6,500) and there is an additional student body fee of £500 per year. This means that a British degree is obtainable in Prague for approximately £6,000 less than in the United Kingdom.

Entry Requirements:

There are no application fees or entrance examinations.

We talk to each applicant to find out what his or her needs and requirements are, as we wish to offer the best possible choice of programme.

This interview is conducted in person at Prague College for applicants in the Czech Republic, and optionally by telephone for international applicants.
