Survival Guide


Dear international students, We are the Erasmus Student Network at the Czech Technical University in Prague (ESN CTU in Prague, formally International Students Club at CTU in Prague) and our history dates to 1999, when ESN was established just by two students. Our members are mostly Czech students and we are all volunteers. We want to help international students especially at the beginning of the semester by the Buddy Program. We also want to make your exchange in Prague the most exciting. That’s why we organize activities such as trips, languages courses and much more. We have prepared this Survival Guide where you can find useful information concerning all the topics for surviving in the Czech Republic.

If you need help or advice, ask your Czech Buddy or come to the ESN, and we will try to help! If you have some questions that are not covered in this Survival Guide, you can ask via email at We can assure you that ESN is doing everything to improve the care for international students. All information about the Erasmus Student Network CTU in Prague is available on our website or at our Facebook page.
