Orientation Programme

Together with colleagues from the Protestant Theological Faculty, we organise an orientation programme from 2020. The program is held twice a year at the beginning of each semester. The program at the beginning of the winter semester lasts two weeks, the program at the beginning of the summer semester one week. The goal of the program is to familiarize participants with the specifics of student life in Prague and to meet their classmates before the semester begins. In the mornings, participants have the opportunity to attend an intensive Czech language course. The afternoon program is dedicated to excursions. Apart from administrative matters, such as getting student cards or familiarising ourselves with the student information system, we also visit various landmarks, galleries and museums. The program ends with an all-day trip outside of Prague.

Orientation programme 2021/22 - Winter Semester

The usual place for our excursions is the Petřín Hill, from where nice views of Prague can be seen. Our next steps led to the St Agnes Monastery, where there is an exhibition of Czech Gothic art. The destination of the day trip at the end of the programme was Karlštejn Castle.

As part of the orientation program, we visited Prague's Jewish Quarter, where we took a photo at the Franz Kafka statue. We chose the town of Kutná Hora, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as the destination of our day trip.
