Welcome Summer 2015 Students!

Welcome to Prague!

Welcome, Students!  We are so excited to have you as our guests.  We have got a great program planned for you.  The learning is reinforced with fun and adventure.  You will create wonderful memories during your time with us, and create friendships that will stand the test of time!

We hope that our unique program opens your heart and mind by experiencing the Czech Republic and Central Europe in a way that goes far beyond the experiences of just visiting as a tourist.  We want to give you a way to experience the history, the magic and the romance of this part of Europe that you cannot get through regular tourist activities.  Providing this program in English opens doors for students from non-English speaking countries.  There simply are not any other programs offered for international students like ours!

From Check Out Czech, and all of our partners:  Welcome to The Heart of Europe!!

Dear Students,

I am very pleased to be working with Check Out Czech to offer you the unique opportunity to study in Prague!

My name is Jan Koura and I work as a lecturer at the Institute of World History, Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague. I specialize in modern world history and my main research interests include Cold War history, Central and Eastern European history after World War II and Euro-Atlantic relations in the 20th century. In the years 2010 and 2014 I was a Visiting Fellow at the University of St. Andrews in Great Britain and I spent the winter semester of academic year 2014–2015 as a Fulbright-Masaryk Visiting Fellow at George Washington University, Elliott School of International Affairs, in the United States.

I will be more than happy to welcome you in Prague and talk together not only about the history of my country and Europe, but your countries too!

See you soon!

Jan Koura
