Free movers program at VSE

13 Nov

Central and East European Studies Program is a one- or two-semester program held in English focusing on issues of Central and East European economies, societies and cultures. The registration deadline for the Spring Semester is December 1.

The program’s objective is to offer foreign students the opportunity to reside in and experience dynamic, exciting conditions in Central Europe. It reviews the past and investigates the present and future of the developing economies, societies, politics, and languages of these countries. Students of the program also have the opportunity to register in several courses designed as a standard part of the University curriculum and taught in English (from fields such as finance, computers, psychology, game theory, etc.). This will improve the students’ general academic background and, simultaneously, make it possible for them to immerse themselves in the community of Czech students at the University of Economics.

The CESP program accepts both graduate and undergraduate students. Roughly half of the students attending the program already have an undergraduate degree and half of them are pursuing their undergraduate degrees. In addition, the student must have at least a 2.5 grade point average on a scale of 4.0 or an equivalent good standing at the home university. Admission is based on the student’s university transcript, application, resume (CV), and English language knowledge. It is required that a student applying for admission must have at least one year (2 semesters) finished at his/her university.
