Higher Education in the Czech Republic

905 views

Published on

The Czech Republic has experienced profound change in the last two years, with a constitutional amendment allowing the population to directly elect the president, the dissolution of one government, and the establishment of new leadership to set new directions for the country. During all this, education policy has swung back and forth like a pendulum. Today, institutions are expanding their range of opportunities for international student mobility and academic cooperation.

Markéta Vaisová, Consultant with the Centre for International Cooperation in Education (DZS), shared details regarding the Czech higher education system and the country's appeal as a study destination at the ICEF Higher Education Workshop held in Prague. Her slides are presented here.

ICEF Monitor has also explored these developments, alongside current inbound and outbound student mobility trends in our related article, "Signs of growing interest in study abroad as Czech Republic aims to stabilise education sector," which you can find here: http://bit.ly/1pgeiJ5
