Student Ambassadors: Airu from Japan
I chose Prague College because I have always wanted to study Art and Design and to learn in English to improve my English skills. I am currently studying for my Foundation Diploma in Art and Design and when completed, I will begin my BA in Graphic Design here too.
Our group is quite small which is great because we can ask questions and discuss our projects at length with the teachers personally, we get a lot of one-on-one time during classes. Prague College has two campuses, we have lectures in both locations, I like the art space at the Bishop’s Court campus in the centre of town. It’s a nice space to work in and you can use the school equipment such as tablets and computers loaded with software.
I chose to study the Foundation programme because I hadn’t had the experience or the opportunity to practise and develop my creative skills. The Foundation programme teaches fundamental knowledge and allows you to think deeply about the creative process and discover your talents in traditional forms like painting as well as learning software programmes for applying design skills. This will fully prepare me for studying design at a Bachelor’s level.
I enjoy living in Prague, there are many cafes and parks. I especially love spring and summer because the weather is great and you can chill at the park in the sun. I live in a student residence and my roommate is super nice so I really enjoy the company of other students and the experience.
It hasn’t always been easy. When I first came to Prague, I was really struggling with English. It was difficult for me to say exactly what I wanted to say when talking to friends or teachers, but I was very happy once I took a step forward and learnt to fully express myself the way I wanted to. You can easily get around Prague with just English but if I could speak Czech, life would be a little easier. Prague College does offer beginner’s Czech lessons, as well as help from current students to get a Czech phone number and bank account, so that was a big help to get started!
