The Czech Republic has become a real hot spot for international students. No wonder, with its high-quality education at low fees, and a high quality of life at modest costs.
For a country of not quite 11 million people, Czech universities also score high in global rankings. Czechia’s best-ranked university is usually Charles University, often among Europe’s top 200. Also near the top you will find institutions like Masaryk University (in Brno), Palacký University in Olomouc, Brno University of Technology and the Czech Technical University in Prague.

The QS World University Rankings are among the most important, most-referenced rankings. The QS ranking relies heavily on its academic survey, asking thousands of academics worldwide about the reputation of universities.
The Times Higher Education World University Rankings (or the THE Rankings for short) compile a wide range of statistics. Equal weight is put on teaching quality, research excellence, and research impact through citations (meaning how often a university’s research is referenced elsewhere).
The Academic Ranking of World Universities by Shanghai Jiao Tong University (often just Shanghai Ranking, or ARWU) focuses on research output and quality, for example measured by the number of published and cited scientific papers and the number of staff or alumni winning the Nobel Prize or Fields Medal.
An increasingly popular study-abroad destination in Central Europa, the Czech Republic (Czechia) offers high-quality teaching and great student life at affordable costs.
