Prague is a popular place for students from all over the world to study. You can join us for one or two semesters, as well as for intensive summer programmes. Our International Relations Office welcomes applicants from both partner and non-partner universities.

If you’ve already been accepted as an exchange student at Unicorn College, you should have received a login and password from us. Log in on our website to select the courses you want to attend during your semester.

If you’re interested in studying at Unicorn College as part of an exchange programme (either as part of the Erasmus programme or outside of it), please contact Mr. Jerome Dumetz for more details.

You can see the list of universities we cooperate in the Partner Universities section.

Visa

The following information is for all international students attending Unicorn College.
Long-term stay in the Czech Republic (more than 3 months) – for non-EU citizens:
If you’re a citizen of a Non-European Union country and will be studying in the Czech Republic for more than 3 months, you’ll need a long-term visa.  Please contact the nearest Czech embassy or consulate in your country to get information on how to apply for a Czech visa.
Since the process may take a while, we recommend that you start the visa application process as soon as you get your official acceptance letter from Unicorn College. This letter provides proof that you’re registered in the programme and specifies the dates you will need to physically be in Prague.
The necessary documents may differ from country to country, however, your passport and the official acceptance letter are always required.  If you’re a citizen of an EU country, you normally don’t need a visa to study in the Czech Republic for up to 6 months.
When in doubt, please contact the nearest Czech embassy or consulate in your country for information on whether you will need a visa.  It is your responsibility to obtain a visa before your arrival in the Czech Republic.
Short-term stay in the Czech Republic (less than 3 months) – for Non-European Union citizens:
If you study at Unicorn College for less than 3 months (Summer programme), whether or not you will need a visa depends on your country of citizenship.  Please contact the nearest Czech embassy or consulate in your country for information regarding your visa requirement well ahead of your arrival date in the Czech Republic.
Please consult the Welcome Guide for more information on the types of visas to apply for.
