Student Life

Students wandering the streets of Prague
Snezka Mountain


All students take "The Czech Republic in a Global Context," a non-credit orientation course taught by NYU Prague professors. This gives students an understanding of Czech history and comptemporary politics before classes start.  

Orientation includes tours of the Prague Castle, Old Town and the Jewish Quarter, screenings of Czech films, excursions to galleries, visits to cultural events (concerts, operas, ballets, theatre).   And of course time to meet new friends and get lost (and found) wandering the maze-like cobblestone streets of Prague.

Students can attend the ballet, opera, philharmonic, or theater for just a few dollars at Prague’s most prestigious performance spaces.
