PCU: A Covid Safe Learning Environment

Prague City University has a long term commitment to creating a safe learning environment. Our goal is to teach on-site as much as possible, while maintaining healthy work and study conditions for students and staff. We are continuously reviewing government health regulations and have implemented a number of steps and added resources to mitigate the effects of Covid-19 on the learning experience and our lives. 

What you need to know:
  1. Face-to-face teaching is running, and we anticipate this to continue into the 2023/24 academic year. Students enrolled on full-time study programmes will be expected to attend classes in Prague.

  2. The Czech Republic continues to welcome students from other EU countries as well as international students who require a visa to study here. Entry into the Czech Republic is no longer subject to any special epidemiological conditions.

  3. Blended learning programmes are delivered in a hybrid format in technology enhanced classrooms which enable students to participate in the same class, either in person or remotely, or entirely through the Digital Campus. Students not studying a blended learning programme are expected to be in Prague to start their studies.

  4. The Digital Campus may be used, if required, in the case of any future quarantine measures.

Dedicated Health and Wellbeing Coordinator

PCU has a dedicated Health and Wellbeing Coordinator Veronika Spiegelová from Student Services. Veronika is happy to answer any questions that you may have about PCU’s health policies and measures and is able to assist you if you require help. Simply contact her via email: veronika.s@praguecityuniversity.cz

Ventilation and Sanitation

Air purifiers with HEPA and carbon filters are installed in every classroom. The purifiers help remove viruses, dust, pollens, and moulds from the air. They have multiple sound/performance settings and can be adjusted as needed. 

Almost all rooms in our buildings have lots of windows which contribute to healthy air circulation. These windows are opened between classes and —  weather, wind and noise permitting —  during classes. 

The classrooms and spaces are also cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis during the day and at night.   

Vaccination Support

Czech residents have easy access to free vaccination, EU citizens entitled to full care in the Czech Republic are also entitled to free vaccination, as well as those entitled to essential care in the Czech Republic based on a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Non-residents (eg. students with visas) have access to vaccination for a set price per dose.

Support and Wellness

PCU is committed to the health and wellbeing of our students. We offer a programme of activities as well as individual support and advice from our Student Services team, available to all students.

Free weekly Yoga and Meditation classes are run each semester and we can also organise free psychological counselling to students with City Practice, an independent multi-lingual counselling centre. Online consultations are also available. You can learn more about our Support and Wellness services here.
