About us

Prague City University offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in collaboration with our key academic partner Teesside University from the UK. Our programme specializations and interests stem from our focus on work with industry and our commitment to the individual student experience and the fostering of leadership skills, communication and creativity.

Following the British model of education, our Bachelor’s degrees are undertaken over three years and our Master’s degrees are over one to two years. We also offer unique one-year Foundation programmes in Business, and also Art, Design & Media Practice, as well as a number of professional diplomas and accountancy certificates. In addition, from September 2021 we are delighted to introduce our School of Education which offers a Bachelor’s degree and a professional qualification for teaching English in Czech secondary schools and language schools internationally. Both programmes are accredited by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MŠMT).
