21st November, 2012 – Prague College is delighted to announce that it has been selected as an “educational destination for success” by the Cambridge University Student Union (“CUSU”).

The College is featured in the annual Cambridge University guide, “Strategies for Success”, which recommends Prague College as one of two examples of educational institutions in the Czech Republic that offers unique benefits and experience. Under the heading “Czech Them Out”, the Cambridge guide identifies Prague College as “an increasingly attractive option for British graduates wanting practical university education for a career in business and computing”.

The guide is aimed at helping its students and alumni by offering guidance and authoritative career advice. Strategies for Success is based on the idea that international postgraduate study has been shown to enhance individuals’ employability, so it helps students plan their graduate education by showcasing a selection of best practice organizations and opportunities for study and work around the world.

Douglas Hajek, Director of Prague College, commented:

“We have always felt that our Masters’ programmes in International Management and Computing are some of the best in the world, and it is greatly encouraging to hear CUSU support our claims! We would like to say “great job” to everyone on the postgraduate team whose work caught the eye of the Cambridge University Students’ Union researchers, and congratulations to everyone at Prague College for contributing to the outstanding reputation we are developing around the world!”

Aside from Prague College, one other graduate school was chosen to represent the Czech Republic in the guide of 19 education destinations: the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague – the oldest art school in the Czech Republic. At a time when universities around the world are competing for global students, the Cambridge University Students’ Union’s selection of two local universities is welcome news for the reputation of universities in the Czech Republic.
