In addition to a challenging curriculum, we aim to facilitate language learning and cultural immersion through well-organized activities. Our on-site staff members have worked extensively with international groups, so our students can enjoy a stress-free experience abroad.

Our semester, year, and BA programs are ideal for students who want more in-depth knowledge of the Central European region and the languages spoken there (Slovak, German, Hungarian, Polish, and Slovenian), while the summer program emphasizes the Slovak language and culture.
