You have the option of staying in a hall of residence. Applications for a place are taken at the same time as the online application procedure. Halls of residence are only rented out on a long-term basis and not only whilst you are looking for an alternative. You need to pay a deposit, from which loss of earnings is offset where applicable if after a few days or weeks you move out to alternative accommodation after all.
You will share a room with bathroom with other students. Students’ halls of residence can be up to 1 hour away from the University. However, public transport is always available and services are regular and run until late into the night.
Most examinations in CLS are pieces of homework or written examinations. Oral examinations are held only if necessary. The examination phase always takes place following on from the period of lectures and lasts six weeks.
Online application is possible from 1.3. until 15.6. of a particular year.
In addition, a printed out application form which has been signed by the International Office and the Coordinator of International Affairs and the Learning Agreement must be sent by post to Prague. You will then receive an Acceptance Letter as well as an accommodation voucher.
The university’s Erasmus page provides information about enrolment and cultural events (film evenings, trips for foreign students in the surrounding area which are often provided free of charge).
ELSA-Prague is also an important contact point for international students at the Faculty of Law.
