The East and Central European Studies (ECES) Summer Programme, a five-week event held at the Faculty of Arts, CU, has attracted almost seventy students from numerous US universities which maintain a long-term partnership with the CU FA, and from the National University of Singapore, which has been our partner since the EAIE international fair in 2013. The Programme is targeted at BA undergraduates who are invited to enrol in up to four courses in fields including literature, history, culture and art history, sociology and psychology, economics and political science, as well as Czech. Each course comprises 52 lessons, and its completion can earn the student up to 12 US credits.

Moreover, the Programme offers leisure time activities, such as commented tours of some of Prague´s most remarkable offbeat places under the Pragulic project aimed at supporting the homeless community, visits to unique exhibitions, such as the Invisible Exhibition held at the New Town Hall which offers a journey through the world of the blind, meetings in iconic Prague literary cafes etc.

The Faculty´s International Office provides the participants with every assistance, including permanent phone assistance in the case of health and other emergencies.

The Programme begins on 18 June and ends on 19 July 2014. For more details, check the website of East and Central European Studies.
