Bachelor's in Education: Teaching English as a Foreign Language

3–year Bachelor’s degree
Full-time and Distance Learning options available
Accredited by the Ministry of Education, Youth & Sports (MŠMT)
No application fee to apply

The Bachelor's in Education combines the study of English as a foreign language with the educational, psychological and linguistic components of teacher training. English skills are developed to a deep level, with attention also paid to cultural and linguistic differences between English-speaking countries. 

The programme offers two pathways; one delivered in English only and one in English and Czech for the first year of theoretical studies. In years two and three the English & Czech pathways combine and all instruction continues in English. This gives students in the Czech pathway the opportunity to learn alongside international students and absorb regional linguistic differences.

Graduates who take the English pathway are awarded the degree title Bc. Specialization in Education: Foreign Language‌ Teaching, English as a Foreign Language. In addition, all graduates can earn the Cambridge CELTA certificate, which qualifies its holders to teach English to adults anywhere in the world.

The Czech pathway is available in Distance Learning format as well as full-time, and offers generous scholarships and grants for Czech and Slovak students who have graduated with Maturita or are working in a Czech or Slovak school.

Lukáš Milka, Bachelor's in Education graduate

Meet a Graduate

"I had only the best experience at Prague City University. The teachers are real professionals, refined specialists in their fields. Everyone, including the staff, was super helpful and accessible at all times. It felt different than other schools. You were really taken care of. As for me, since graduation I've been teaching for Akcent International House in Prague. From day one, I felt confident stepping into my classroom because I already had so much teaching experience. I've met so many lifetime friends and great colleagues. I wish I could have stayed there for longer!"
