The University of New York in Prague (UNYP) was established in April 1998 in cooperation with the State University of New York, New Paltz, and the State University of New York Empire State College. This cooperation enables UNYP to offer students the opportunity to obtain an internationally recognized American bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York. UNYP also works closely with its European sister college, New York College, in Athens, Greece. New York College has more than 20 years’ experience in offering international bachelor’s degree and master’s degree programs, including international MBA programs, in partnership with accredited American and European universities.
What we do
Our undergraduate programs are based on the teaching styles used in American colleges and universities. Our programs are designed to introduce students to a range of academic disciplines, to prepare them to master the techniques of critical thinking, effective communication, analysis and research, and acquire the knowledge necessary for a professional specialization in a major field. All of our classes are taught in English.
Who we are
Today, UNYP is the largest and most prominent English-language higher education institution in the Czech Republic. Over 800 students from over 60 countries form a lively educational community with an international group of instructors. Our faculty currently numbers 120 teaching staff (the majority of whom are native English speakers) from over 30 countries. UNYP is proud of its accomplishments and its ability to blend the rich academic history of the Czech Republic with the best traditions of American and European higher education. Our team of educators and professionals at UNYP are looking forward to a bright future of continual development and success over the years to come.
Admission and entrance exams
The requirements listed here are the minimum requirements for students to be considered for one of our programs. Students will also need to successfully pass an interview with an academic advisor, and prove themselves to be suitable for admittance. Following the American philosophy of education, UNYP is pleased to give suitable candidates the opportunity to experience higher education, but all students who are admitted will be required to maintain a high grade point average to remain on the course. The entire admission process can be completed remotely.
