Students will be housed in shared, residential apartments with other CEA student program participants. Apartments are typically shared between 5 students, with 2 being the minimum and 6 being the maximum number of students per apartment. Bedrooms within apartments house 2 to 3 students, depending on the size of room. All apartments have fully equipped (including pots, pans, dishes, silverware, cups, and glasses) kitchens with refrigerator and stove. Each apartment has a washing machine, bathroom (towels are not included), and Wi-Fi access.
Travel time from student housing to the CEA Prague Center is typically 10-30 minutes. Public transportation around Prague is easily accessible throughout the city and students should expect to commute to their internship every day.
UC Davis reserves the right to change the accommodation location. Should this be necessary, we will arrange comparable lodging. Please note that elevators, air conditioners and other modern conveniences may not be available in all locations.
Students are responsible for the cost of all meals. CEA will provide a welcome group meal during the onsite orientation and farewell meal at the conclusion of the program.
Throughout the program, CEA will provide a variety of social and cultural activities to help students learn more about Czech culture. Specific activities will be determined approximately 4 weeks prior to the program start date. Examples may include:
Participation in this UC Davis Study Abroad program requires travel to and extended living in a foreign location(s) abroad. UC Davis Study Abroad endeavors to reduce and mitigate risk wherever possible. However, the environments and risks associated with living in these locations are substantially different than those found during a regular course of study at UC Davis. All participants must download and review the following information prior to departure. Any questions should be directed to the Program Coordinator.
According to Lonely Planet:
Prague is the equal of Paris in terms of beauty. The history goes back a millennium. The 1989 Velvet Revolution that freed the Czechs from communism bequeathed to Europe a gem of a city to stand beside stalwarts like Rome, Amsterdam and London. Not surprisingly, visitors from around the world have come in droves, and on a hot summer’s day it can feel like you are sharing Charles Bridge with half of the humanity. But even the crowds can’t take away the spectacle of a 14-century stone bridge, a hilltop castle and a lovely lazy river – the Vltava – that inspired one of the most hauntingly beautiful pieces of 19th century classical music, Smetan’s ‘Moldau’.
