University of New York in Prague
Prague, Czech Republic
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Prague is one of the urban gems of Central Europe. The city was one of the very few spared entirely during World War II, which means there is a treasure trove of historic and modern buildings spread throughout the city. With one of the world's best public transportation systems, Prague also provides an easy way to explore the city. Prague's central location in Europe also gives students a unique opportunity to easily travel to Germany, Poland, Austria, Slovakia, and other countries via train. Finally, Prague is ideally situated between Eastern and Western Europe, which provides students with a tremendous opportunity to explore the cultural and historical dynamics of this geographic location.

The University of New York in Prague is a relatively new university, opening in 1998 and is the leading English-taught University in the Czech Republic. UNYP is a small institution with around 600 undergraduate students. About 30 percent of students are either Czech or Slovak, with the rest coming from other countries in Europe and abroad. The campus of UNYP is a short tram ride from the Prague Castle and Old Town Square.
Courses are offered in business administration, communications, international relations, and psychology.
Since students study in American-style bachelor programs at UNYP, there are many similarities in course structure to NAU. Courses are usually 3-4 credits and students should be expected to take 4-5 courses.
A list of courses available to exchange students at UNYP can be found here.
Students who wish to receive academic credit (aside from general elective and liberal studies credit) must have their courses pre-approved by the appropriate department. To view a list of academic advisors, please review the information in our Academics section. Once you apply through our website, you will be able to enter the classes you wish to take electronically. These classes can be reviewed and approved directly by faculty once entered. If you would like courses abroad to count for general elective credit or liberal studies credit only, please contact your Education Abroad advisor for those approvals.
