Cost of Living
Overall Experience
I got more exposure to Eastern/Central Europe which I had always been interested in making it very worthwhile - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was definitely worth while! I learned that who you travel and spend your time with is the most important thing. And that studying abroad is the best time to go out on a limb and be uncomfortable. Make as many friends as you can while abroad. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Past Review Good, Not Great
Learned how to live on my own and cook for myself. Also lived in a very bad dorm room with three other roommates so learned I can live with anyone! Also learned how different the rest of the world is from America. Definitely worthwhile, but difficult. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Past Review Prague And Famu
Definitely. Gained a lot of perspective and understanding about what I want to do with my life. Gained a ton of new friends who I'll now see every time I go home for break, and just had a great time. Coming back to Midd, I'm so happy and excited to be going back, but with a fresh perspective. It had gotten a bit routine last fal... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Yes. I gained worldly experience, independence, cultural understanding, and most of all I had a great time. - Hamilton College View Entire Review
I gained confidence, independence, and a better understanding of who I am. I experienced a very unique culture and got to learn about the history of the Czech republic from people who really lived it. I got to do an intensive film program that taught me a lot. I met amazing people in the Tisch program and the overall NYU prague ... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Yes--very worthwhile. Even if you don't 100% enjoy the program you are on it is still amazing to live by yourself in a foreign country and a huge accomplishment when you make it through! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Past Review
I would not have changed a thing about my abroad experience. I learned an incredible amount about myself and feel accomplished as being independent in a foreign country is a major achievement. - Dickinson College View Entire Review
Wouldn't want to change anything about my experience abroad! - Hamilton College View Entire Review
I would not change my abroad experience in anyway. I traveled to 12 different cities while I studied abroad, met all kinds of new people and learned a lot. Prague is a great place to go. It is different than any other place I traveled to in Europe. It is a beautiful place that has an amazing history and future. I was looking for... - Anonymous University View Entire Review


Prague resonates with the culture of Europe, past and present. Home to prolific writers, artists, and musicians, including Kafka, Mucha, Kundera, Mozart, Dvořák, and Smetana, Prague’s many cafés, art galleries, music festivals, and theatres draw international performances and audiencears. The NYU Prague academic center is located in two 15th-century buildings only steps away from the Old Town Square, considered the heart of the city, where some of the finest examples of Prague's architectural accomplishments, including Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and Art Nouveau styles, can be observed. The NYU Prague curriculum introduces students to the historical, political, social, and cultural heritage of the Czech Republic, and it helps them understand its role in a changing Europe and appreciate the complex economic and political issues influencing the relationship between Eastern and Western Europe. All courses are taught in English, and students also have the opportunity to take language courses in Czech, German, Polish, or Russian. 
Full-time student affairs staff plan numerous events and activities for students to become familiar with their new city in their first few weeks. Students visit such institutions as the Parliament of the Czech Republic, the Foreign Ministry, and Radio Free Europe to experience firsthand life after the Velvet Revolution, led by former president Václav Havel. Several field trips are also organized each semester so that students can explore the historic countryside. Outside Prague, in nearby villages and towns, students discover the medieval architecture and musical heritage of Bohemia and Moravia. Students travel to medieval cities such as Český Krumlov, to the historic spa known as Karlovy Vary, and to the vineyards and farms of the region. In addition, weekend excursions may be organized to cities such as Budapest and Berlin. Internships and community service opportunities are available.
