Our partner, Anglo-American University, is Prague’s oldest private university. With a strong focus on international students, AAU offers more than 100 courses across its five schools. Courses are taught in English; you’ll attend class alongside local Czech and other international students from more than 50 countries.  AAU’s stunning campus is located in the 17th century Thurn-Taxis Palace in the central Mala Strana neighborhood, adjacent to the CEA Prague Office and within walking distance of the Charles Bridge and other notable historic sites.

When in Prague, you can choose standard CEA housing—in an apartment shared with other CEA students—or arrange your own independent housing. Assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.

Program Structure

CEA’s summer internship program includes an academic seminar and an internship placement. The internship seminar meets for 22 contact hours and you'll spend 120 hours at your internship placement. Together, your seminar and internship placement are worth 3 credits. Your internship placement hours may vary depending on industry standards for your career field and will be determined after you arrive.

In addition to your internship placement and academic seminar, you'll enroll in an additional 3-credit elective course, bringing your total potential earned credits to 6. Electives meet for 42 hours and run for 6 weeks starting in June to align with the academic study program offered at Anglo American University. Courses meet at various times Monday-Friday; active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays. Course options may be limited, as your primary responsibility is to fulfill your internship obligations, which include honoring your employer’s preferred schedule.

We strongly recommended that you apply as soon as possible. Internship positions are selective; students who demonstrate both professionalism and commitment throughout the process are most successful in securing placements.

The placement process involves three video interviews: a screening interview with your Internship Specialist, a job placement interview with your on-site internship coordinator, and a final interview with your host site supervisor. The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization. Upon successfully completing your on-site placement coordinator interview, CEA guarantees you a placement based on the personal, professional, and cross-cultural goals reflected in your interview. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to arrival. 

Upon placement, you'll automatically be enrolled in your internship course. You will be asked to indicate your preferred elective. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

If you have confirmed an internship placement in Prague through independent contacts, we can also support you in securing important logistics such as visas, housing, and credit. Contact an admissions counselor for more details.

Excursions

Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer study students are typically offered between one to two excursions. You'll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we've offered in the past.

Český Krumlov

Český Krumlov

Join us on an overnight trip to Český Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the banks of the Vltava River. One of the most popular destinations in the Czech Republic, Český Krumlov is an outstanding example of a Central European medieval town with an architectural heritage more than 500 years old. It’s easy to see the influence of several different cultures—Czech, Austrian, Bavarian, and Northern Italian—on this charming town near the Austrian border. Encircled by a bend in the river, the town features a 13th-century castle with Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque elements. During this two-day, one-night trip, we also hike through a nearby forest to a ruined castle, forming a contrast with the perfectly maintained, picturesque center of Český Krumlov, and provide you with free time to explore on your own.

Karlovy Vary

Karlovy Vary

On this day trip, you’ll explore Karlovy Vary, the Czech Republic’s largest, most famous spa city. For centuries, Europeans have gone to spas for rehabilitation, usually staying for a month or two in a naturally beautiful location. Doctors today still prescribe spa stays as treatment. Situated in western Bohemia west of Prague, Karlovy Vary offers more than 300 hot springs and the warm-water Teplá river. Legend says that the town’s thermal springs were accidentally discovered in 1370 by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV. In the 16th century, the spa enjoyed the favor of many noble families and wealthy townsmen; by the 19th century, it was a popular destination for celebrities like Beethoven and Goethe. Today, the city draws movie stars and fans who gather for the annual summer International Film Festival. You may recognize Karlovy Vary as the location for a number of films, including Casino Royale.

Terezín

Terezín

Spend a day exploring Terezín, an 18th-century fortress that was used as a concentration camp by the Germans during World War II. Terezín is a little-known but interesting example of the network of concentration camps in operation during that time. Most famous for its history as a gruesome prison, Terezín was a transit camp for Jews and other prisoners of the Nazis; most of those coming from the Czech lands who died in camps further to the west, such as Auschwitz-Birkenau, came through Terezín. Though the camp was used by the Germans for propaganda during the war—even managing to get the Red Cross to agree that the camps were not inhumane— the vast majority of those who went through Terezín did not survive. Inmates in Terezín are known for keeping cultural and artistic life alive and striving to make life as normal as possible for the children present. The on-site memorial details these efforts and illustrates Terezín’s terrible but enlightening history. Visiting such a site is an important historical and cultural experience during your study abroad stay in Central Europe.

Kutná Hora

Kutná Hora

Imagine you’re standing in one of the world’s most important financial centers, a place that sits squarely in the middle of a global trade network and provides an entire region with its common currency of exchange. Where are you? London in 1844? New York in 1964? No, you’re in Kutná Hora in the 14th century. Larger than London at that time, Kutná Hora was the economic and geographic center of a trade network that spanned Europe and reached across the spice routes to the Middle and Far East. The silver deposits mined in Kutná Hora were minted into a currency called groschen (a later currency from the region, the tolar, was the origin of the word “dollar”). On this day trip to Kutná Hora, you’ll explore this beautiful, well-preserved medieval town, now protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Don a traditional white miner’s uniform to tour the old silver mines, visit the gothic-style Church of Saint Barbara with its flying buttresses, and see the nearby “bone church,” the 19th century Sedlec Ossuary decorated with elaborate arrangements of the bones of thousands of victims of the Black Death and Hussite religious wars.
