CIEE: Prague, Czech Republic (Third Party) (Summer)

The Program

CIEE offers many different summer program tracks in Prague, Czech Republic. All tracks are open to UConn students, but it is very important to contact your UConn Education Abroad Advisor if you are interested in the internship program.

Even though the population is only 1.2 million, Prague has an unusually rich cultural life: festivals, operas, concerts, and cultural programs, and many of these events are accessible on a student budget. CIEE students are able to experience life similar to that of Czech students, make use of numerous neighborhoods of the city like native Praguers, and explore a captivating, recently-democratized society.

The Experience

Housing is included in the study abroad program fee.

While in Prague, students reside in apartments in popular neighborhoods with fellow CIEE participants and a CIEE Flat Buddy—a Charles University student who helps CIEE students adjust to student life in Prague. Students share double rooms and kitchen and bathroom facilities. Meals are not included and are the responsibility of the student. Students can purchase food supplies and prepare meals in the apartment kitchens.

Apartments are located throughout Prague and commuting times and distances vary. It’s important for students to be aware that commuting is part of daily life in Prague, and the location of most apartments requires daily use of public transportation. It is common for the student commute, including public transportation and walking, to take up to 30 minutes one way. A transportation pass is included in the program fees.

Housing arrangements may vary depending on the program track you choose. Please visit the “Housing & Meals” section of the program on the CIEE website for exact information on the housing arrangements for your program of interest.


Certain fees associated with this program will appear on your UConn fee bill. These fees are required in addition to the costs billed to you directly by the third party program provider. For exact information on these additional costs, please visit this program’s budget sheet by clicking the link below.
