Opportunities for UNYP Students to Expand Their Horizons

The University of New York in Prague cooperates in student exchange programs with other universities and colleges across four continents. UNYP students understand the value of international education, and spending a semester at a partner institution is an excellent way for students to develop an increased sense of perspective. 

We encourage all UNYP students to consider spending a semester abroad, and CGE is here to support you with any questions you may have.
