Students at work
The Faculty of Agrobiology, Food and Natural Resources (FAFNR) at the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (CULS) has been investing in such fields of study since 1906, and its excellent achievements have resulted in a membership of Euroleague, a consortium of 7 highly recognized European Life Sciences universities. CULS boasts an extensive campus that is growing all of the time, yet a feeling of community is maintained through a number of facilities and social events, including the infamous annual end of semester Miss Agro party. The location of the campus is well suited to both students, and for the needs of the faculty, as we are in a rural setting with fast and frequent access to the Prague downtown.
Fortunately, the relative costs of travelling and living in Prague are very cheap, compared to Western Europe. In fact, you may find yourself drinking the best beer in the world for as little as a pound a pint. Furthermore, you will be in the geographic heart of Europe, which makes travel around Europe possible during the semester breaks.
Prague is one of the most charismatic cities on Earth, renowned for its rich history, stunning architecture, friendly people and a non-stop party culture. Look beyond the city, and you will find a country with a diverse landscape and beautiful countryside. Rolling hills and vineyards dominate the southeast, while snow-capped mountains line the borders to the north. Nature and its resources are of great importance to this central European country, and consequently, considerable research and education are devoted to the sciences surrounding natural resources and agricultural development and sustainability.

I met many interesting people, made some great friends and international contacts, and had a lot of fun while achieving my master’s degree at an internationally reputable university.” (MSc.
