Anastasia - Student in Czech RepublicAnastasia studies B.A. Business Administration – Marketing & Communications Emphasis at the Anglo-American University.

Why did you choose to study in the Czech Republic?

I chose to study in the Czech Republic for several reasons. One of them is safety as the Czech Republic is one of the top 10 safest countries in the world. Additionally, my family members enjoyed staying in Prague while traveling around Europe, so a positive personal experience comes into play. And lastly, compared to most other European countries, it is more affordable to study here and more possible to become a professional in your field with a chance to save money for future investments.

Could you explain what is it like to study at AAU?

Being a student at AAU has been an interesting plot twist in my life story because it has broadened my knowledge not only in my field of study but also allowed me to experience what it means to be a part of a continuously developing business world. With skilled professors, well-trained staff and the international student community studying has become an enjoyable and diverse experience.

How expensive is it for you to study in Prague?

I considered many factors when I was looking for a university to study at and the financial aspect was an important one. I believe that since the Czech Republic has its own currency (Czech Koruna) it makes it really price-friendly for students, compared to other European countries. Additionally, there are different offerings for different price brackets, so in my opinion, everyone can find something to do that is suitable for their financial situation.

Outside of class, what is student life in Prague like?

Being a student in Prague is great as there are so many things to do and see outside of our university campus. One of the best things is that you can find student discounts on almost everything (food, transportation tickets, festivals, etc) and it makes daily life much more interesting and eventful for students. Additionally, students have the ability to visit various events, workshops, lectures and courses for free or for very discounted prices.

How do you think your time in the Czech Republic has helped your studies and/or your career?

Moving to the Czech republic for university was a big step for me as a student. With this experience, I have learned what it truly means to be a part of an international community. Additionally,  I have mastered my English language skills and learned Czech, broadened my knowledge about the business world, its trends and future developments, and met wonderful people along the way who have inspired me to improve my skills and achieve my goals.

Do you have any advice for other international students?

I think the advice I would give to students is not to be afraid to ask questions. Asking questions not only helps to make things more clear in cases of uncertainty but it also breaks down communication barriers. By overcoming language barriers and not being afraid to ask questions it becomes easier to find supportive people who will help you and you’ll improve your social skills along the way!
