Studying in Prague
Prague is not only the capital of the Czech Republic, but also its largest city, with some 1.2 million residents. The Charles Bridge over the River Vltava is famous around the world: it was once the coronation route of the Bohemian kings. Prague is a city full of cultural treasures, so much so that the entire city has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Prague also has rich culture and nightlife scenes. The cost of living in Prague is very moderate for a city of its size, especially compared with Germany, Scandinavia, or the UK, which makes living here all the more interesting. AIMS is a very active association for international medical students in Prague. It organises many activities such as balls and dinner parties and supports the classes after them with its annual book sale.
As a European metropolis, the public transport in Prague is exceptional. The metro runs every few minutes and stops directly at the gates of the Motol University Hospital. Getting orientated to your programme is also facilitated thanks to Freshers Week, where you’ll learn the ins and outs of studying in Prague and meet other international students. There are good transport connections to Prague by car, rail, and air.
