The UPCES Experience


UPCES Tuition does not include:

  • Housing in Prague. UPCES students stay in apartments with other students and pay rent independently. Housing costs vary among options, but the average is $2,800 per student for a full semester (single occupancy). Please see the Housing page for more information.
  • Airfare to and from Prague.


Fall Semester typically runs from early September through mid-December. The Spring Semester typically runs from early February through mid-May, with a one-week semester break. Please check our Academic Calendar for the actual dates of each upcoming semester. UPCES will send a tuition invoice approximately 3 months before the start of the semester. All tuition payments will be made to the CERGE-EI Foundation in New Jersey at this address:

Tuition can be paid individually or arranged with each university in accordance with their payment standards. Please contact the UPCES Office for more information. Tuition fees are set yearly by the CERGE-EI Executive and Supervisory Committee.
