Important Program Update

12 March, 2020

Due to the recent statement by the President of the United States and the Czech Republic's current classification of a Level Three Travel Advisory by the CDC, UPCES Study Abroad in Prague is advising students to closely adhere to the instructions of their respective home universities regarding repatriation. UPCES staff remain on standby to support students as they make decisions that are in their best interests.

During several meetings with faculty today, UPCES has begun to move all scheduled courses to remote platforms to make sure students are able to complete their semester as seamlessly as possible from anywhere in the world. Please stand by for updated syllabi and course information from professors as we adjust to these changes. Courses will be held remotely, beginning Monday, March 16.
