Summer Study Abroad in Prague
for Student Athletes

You choose: study or intern in Prague

Select the program’s intern abroad track and work in a Czech company. Conduct sports marketing research or learn about hotel management. Complement your placement with an internship course that provides an academic framework for your on-the-job learning. Select the study abroad track and your courses will show you all sides of Prague—from its thriving business sector to its stunning arts and rich history. Whatever track you choose, a Survival Czech class helps you explore the city independently.

Balance the student with the athlete

We know your sport is just as important to you as your academics. That’s why you have an athletic curriculum that complements your coursework and internship. Our on-site Athletic Director coordinates conditioning sessions, tournaments, and cross-training specific to your sport. Beyond that, you experience the game through new eyes as you interact with players from the Czech Republic.

Prague: Perfect European City

Cobblestone streets, castles, and open-air markets. Trams that make exploring Prague a breeze. Trains that place the rest of Europe within your grasp. Cutting-edge arts. Multinational business centers. Trendy restaurants and cozy cafés. The historic location of countless political and intellectual movements—from the Reformation to the Velvet Revolution. What will you love most about Prague?

Global Players and CET

This program is a collaboration between two powerhouses in the field of study abroad—CET Academic Programs and Global Players. CET oversees academics, takes you on innovative excursions, provides you with centrally located apartments, and supports you as you acclimate to life in Prague. Global Players brings you comprehensive gym access, arranges different opportunities for tournaments and games, and makes sure you have the conditioning and cross-training sessions you need.

Daily Life in Prague

Hike up to Prague Castle. Watch a musician play at a street fair. Photograph the stunning Charles Bridge at sunrise. Hop on a train to Berlin for the weekend. Or stay in Prague and have dinner with friends for less than what you’d pay to see a movie in the United States. You will love living in Prague.

The Downtown CET Center

You’ll attend your classes at the CET Center in the heart of Prague. The neighborhood is filled with restaurants, cafés, museums, movie theaters, and stores. The Center serves as the program hub. Use the wi-fi. Study in the small library. Chat with staff. Or just hang out on the couches with peers.

Housing & Meals

You’ll share a spacious apartment with other program participants. Apartments are fully furnished, centrally located, and wifi equipped. A short commute gets you to the CET Center. Buses, metros, and trams in Prague are clean, frequent, and timely, and we provide you a transportation pass so you can explore all you want without worrying about costs. For meals, take your pick of local restaurants and eateries, or cook for yourself in your apartment kitchen.
