Going to Prague was one of the best experiences of my life. It was an amazing way to immerse myself in a different culture and truly see how big the world is. Every aspect of the city is mesmerizing, from the delicious food to the beautiful buildings. There was never a dull moment while I was there.

See what our students have to say

We do almost all of our projects in small international teams, and we work together like we would in a business company and synergize our different ideas. There's flexibilities to meet with teachers outside of class, and ask them questions, not just specifically things we learn in the class.
