Dear students, dear friends,

Unfortunately, the Summer School of Slavonic Studies in Prague cannot take place this year, and its 64th edition has been postponed to 2021.

The current situation, both in the Czech Republic and globally, makes it impossible to organise a summer school that would be accessible and safe for everyone interested in learning about the Czech language and culture and for their teachers, and to maintain the level of quality that you are used to.

If you have been nominated for a scholarship for this year or have already applied, you will receive more information by email.

We’re looking forward to seeing you next year.

At the end of the LŠSS, participants receive a certificate of attendance with their final grade. After successfully passing the full programme of 120 classes, students can receive 8 ECST credits.

We can also arrange the opportunity to sit a Czech Language Certificate Exam (CCE) for levels B1, B2 and C1. The exam is not a part of the regular programme of the LŠSS. During the LŠSS, students may sit a mock CCE exam free of charge.

We can also assist participants with their independent research in Czech archives and libraries and arrange consultations with Czech experts.
