Czech Technical University in Prague

Czech Technical University in Prague is one of the largest and oldest technological universities in Europe. It was founded in 1707. CTU currently has 8 faculties and 21,000 students. There is a large and active student community in the city, and the modern transport system makes it easy to get around to taste the many different beers the Czech Republic is known for.

The ‘City of a Hundred Spires’ is the capital of the Czech Republic. The city’s intriguing history unfolds as you pass the Prague Astronomical Clock and street art in the Old Town and continue across the iconic Charles Bridge and up to Prague Castle in Hradcany. There are also plenty of opportunities to view modern art and listen to music while you are there.


This is an Erasmus + agreement. As an Erasmus student, you will be participating in the world’s largest exchange programme and can study at good European universities without paying tuition. Through Erasmus+, you will be given an extra grant that provides more money to enjoy your stay.


B2 in English is required to study at this university

Everyone participating in an Erasmus+ exchange programme must take an online language test online before they travel, and they will be given access to a language course through this service. The Division of Research, Internationalisation and Innovation (AFII) will inform you of this test in advance.

If you can document that part of the study takes place in Czech, you may receive a grant from the State Educational Loan Fund, Norway for a 4-week language course to be taken in the Czech Republic prior to the start of the semester.


You will not be paying tuition at this institution and will receive the Erasmus+ grant in addition to a grant from the State Educational Loan Fund, Norway. You will receive the same financial support from the State Educational Loan Fund, Norway as for studies in Norway, in addition to a travel grant. You must pay a semester fee to HVL in order to receive a loan and grant from the State Educational Loan Fund, Norway during the exchange period.

Course approval

In order to apply for a student exchange programme, your application must first be approved by the study programme of your faculty. An approved application means that you have been given an academic pre-approval for the course or traineeship you will be doing abroad. The academic pre-approval specifies what you will be doing while you are on an exchange programme and confirms these activities will be fully approved as part of your education plan at HVL.
