Number of Czech students at US universities drops slightly

15-11-2011

In the last academic year, 765 Czechs studied at universities in the United States, which was 7 percent less than in the previous period, according to a report by the US group Institute of International Education. Most Czech university students in the US attended bachelor programmes. Jakub Tesař from the Fulbright Commission, which organizes stays at US universities, said high costs were the major obstacle for Czech students intending to study in the United States.
