Questions & Answers

European Center for Career Education -ECCEDU


What kind of students does ESAC accept?
ESAC accepts students who demonstrate that they are capable of studying and traveling overseas, meaning, we seek students who are curious, strong, independent, can cope with change and different environments. We want students who are flexible and can roll with language and cultural barriers and who are willing to take responsibility for their own actions and behavior. We want easy going people who don’t panic at every turn and can adapt to things like food, heavy travel, long walks and live without the comforts of home. Is this you?
How do I know a program based in the Czech Republic is right for me?
This short-term study abroad program, based in Central Europe, is designed for college students engaged in business, hospitality and humanities. Students from anywhere in the world are encouraged to apply, particularly if interested in an internationally focused program.
Is Prague a safe and user friendly city?
The beautiful capital of the Czech Republic remains one of the most popular destinations for students to participate in educational programs. It is a very safe place to travel and study and it is easy to get around either by walking or public transportation.
How do I get to Prague?
The airport in Prague is Vaclav Havel Airport Prague (PRG), (formerly called Prague Ruzyně International Airport(, which is located approximately 15 kilometers outside of Prague’s historical center and has daily connection from/to major European cities and some cities outside of Europe. It is easy to get to the Czech Republic from anywhere in Europe by train. Remember, in summer the international trains tend to be full and you should book your seat at least a few weeks ahead. Most international trains arrive at Praha Hlavni Nadrazi (Main Station).
Will I have Internet access to keep in touch with family and friends while I am there?
There is Wi-Fi Internet access in the residence hall and on the campus and it is included in the program fee. You are not required to bring a laptop for the ESAC program, it is optional. If you choose not to bring your laptop, you can use internet cafes around the city as an alternative. It is not expensive and it is very convenient.
When I arrive, will someone meet me at the airport?
Yes! If you arrive the day the program starts, we will be at the airport and provide you with a transfer to your accommodation. Upon arrival at the residence hall, ground staff will welcome you and help you check in. That evening there will be a welcome party for the entire group so you can meet your peers.
What can I expect from my classes?
Traditional academic sessions are held on-site in modern classroom facilities, followed by lunch and afternoon site visits to business and industry. Some site visits are scheduled, while others will be arranged based upon an individual student’s interest. Faculty and local staff will assist students in arranging visits to companies they are interested in visiting as part of their program, providing an excellent opportunity for personal networking. A small amount of prep work is required up-front as part of an on-line pre-departure session designed to ensure all students are adequately prepared for their four-week stay overseas.
Will I have any free time to go site seeing or travel independently?
Yes! We recommend that you take full advantage of your free afternoons and weekend to travel around the city of Prague or to nearby villages. Local advisors are on hand to offer you recommendations of some excellent site seeing.
