Charles University (Prague) is an exchange destination for Utrecht University Bachelor and Master students of the faculty of Humanities in Prague, Czech Republic.
Semester I (Winter semester): approximately October - mid-February
Semester II (Summer semester): mid-February - June
Language requirement: a minimum language level of B2 (CEFR) in Dutch and/or Czech is required.
Students are required to have the majority of their courses/ECTS at the 'Faculty of Arts'. Other than that, students may select the rest of their courses at other faculties. It is, however, not recommended to choose your most important courses outside of the Faculty of Arts as your admission into these cannot be guaranteed. Note that the following departments are extremely restrictive as the capacity of their courses is limited: the two 'Departments of Anglophone Studies' (courses codes starting with AAA), the 'Department of Psychology' (course codes starting with APS), and the 'Department of Film Studies' (course codes starting with AFV).
Dutch, Czech, English
The cost of living in the Czech Republic is on average comparable to that of other Central and East European countries. A single student is advised to have available approximately Kč 8 500 – 9 000 (app. 312 – 340 EUR) per month to cover food, basic transport and accommodation.
Rent CZK 3,000–7,000
Food CZK 3,800–4,200

Be aware that the level of rent varies depending on which city you live in, whether you use the University dormitory or private place and if you share the flat or not. The final cost of living, of course, depends on your personal spending habits.
