About Studying in the Czech Republic

For many years already, the Czech Republic (today officially known as Czechia) offers international programmes to students from all around the world.

Several universities highly prestigious and of the highest standards are prepared to host and award recognized and accredited degrees to international students.

Despite the fact that at King Charles College we are dedicated to medical studies, it is important to mention that all universities offer several degrees in different fields and topics of the academic world and is not always about medicine or science per se.

On this section, we divert our attention to the value of the different universities in the Czech Republic as a whole in the eyes of the biggest ranking bodies in the world.

If you are thinking on an education in the Czech Republic, then check these interesting data that will give you an overview of the overall ranking of the universities where you’re likely to be studying and their reputation.

Another point to clarify is that needless to say, there are thousands of recognized universities out there and when you look for a medical school or a university where to study, being in one of the top 600 will mean by default that you are at a very good place, but obviously even getting a degree from a university that is the top 1000 is still pretty OK if you keep in mind that there are more than 40,000 recognized universities as for the year 2017 according to the QS (Global ranking site for higher education):

On this article, we will review the TOP universities within the Czech Republic and their world ranking status according to the different international bodies.
