Unfortunately, as a non-profit organization, we are not able to provide students with financial aid. Nonetheless, we do encourage students to explore funding opportunities available through their home universities, non-governmental organizations and government sources. A good place to start the search is www.scholarshipportal.com
Accepted students may ask for documents they need for their scholarship application(s).
Yes, students do receive a certificate of attendance and participation on the final day of the summer school, stating their successful completion of the program.
In the past, graduates of Prague Summer Schools received credits from their home Universities. Many students in the past have counted our summer schools towards their degrees, usually receiving 3-4 ECTS. However, it is a sole responsibility of the students to fulfill the requirements of their home university.
In order to have an idea of the summer school’s workload in terms of hours, we kindly invite you to visit the individual webpage of the program you wish to attend, and have a look at the preliminary schedule. We will be pleased to provide our alumni with any kind of supporting materials required by their home academic institution.
We offer a 100% refund of received program fee, excluding international transfer fees, for any cancellation before the 1st of June.
Cancellations between the 1st of June and 15th of June are refunded for 90% of the received program fee, as the hotels charge a booking cancellation fee.
No refund can be made for cancellations after the 15th of June.
