Study Abroad Options
Studying abroad is an integral part of the study at the Faculty of International Relations, both at the bachelor’s and master’s levels. A wide variety of partner universities and a high number of outgoing students create a unique position within the Czech educational system. The FIR supports outgoing students organizationally, as well as financially.
The majority of all semesters abroad is based on the exchange system. Its idea is an exchange of students between partner universities. When e.g. Prague University of Economics and Business sends 5 students to Copenhagen Business School, the partner institution in Copenhagen sends 5 students to Prague.
There are two ways of financing:
- Through Erasmus+ funds (students get a scholarship from the EU) – an exchange program within Europe
- Through the Scholarship fund of VŠE (students get a scholarship from the University) – an exchange program outside of Europe
More information can be found on the website of the International Office.
