Main differences compared to Nova SBE teaching methods
It’s similar in terms of a lot of group works. It’s not as demanding as NOVA
Is the local CEMS Club active?
The Cems club organized a lot of activities. For example: every week we had a CEMS drink to see each other, Team building weekends, etc. Because of the active CEMS club we were a very close group of friends. It made my exchange the best experience I could wish for.
Available options for accommodation and suggestions
I stayed at the residence as all the cems exchange students were staying there. Make sure you contact the other exchange students before going to ask where they are going. Because the residence is not amazing but when everyone is there it’s amazing. Otherwise find an apartment close to school which is also close to the city center.

Residence = 280 a month
Total cost of living (per month)
It’s much cheaper as Lisbon.
700 CZK a month (student card)

Briefly comment your overall experience
I truly loved my experience. Mostly due to the people I met and because of the active CEMS club.
Prague is just a beautiful city and is amazing to live in.
The Czech people are very friendly if you get to know them, in the beginning you could perceive them as cold and rude. However, they have black humor and you just need to be open minded. Because when you get closer to them they are so friendly and would offer you everything.
