"As a frequent traveler with no fixed working hours, I found that PCU’s distance learning programme was the only one that reflected my needs. It allowed me to work during the day and attend online lectures on selected evenings. Furthermore, I could plan my activities without conflicts as sessions were pre-scheduled each semester. PCU has the systems, platforms and processes in place for distance learning, it really doesn't matter what country you are in."

Bursary for Professional Students

If you are employed by a company which agrees to contribute towards your studies on Distance Learning programme, Prague City University will match a contribution from your employer, capped at 20% of the total tuition fee.

For example, if your company offers to pay 10% of fees, PCU will also pay 10%, reducing your own costs to only 80%. And if a company offers to pay 50% of the fees, PCU will still contribute 20%, meaning you pay only 30% of the total tuition fee.

Note: Applicants who apply for and are successfully awarded a scholarship are not eligible to benefit from this bursary, even if their company agrees to cover the cost of their tuition fees.

"Distance Learning is truly designed for working people. Classes take place over weekends and Lecturers are very communicative and correspond quickly. Most importantly, PCU recognised not only prior studies, but also work experience so I will be able to complete my Bachelor’s in three semesters."
