Due to the need to balance the number of incoming and outgoing exchange students, CALS is not currently taking applications for the Czech University of Life Sciences Exchange.

The Czech University of Life Sciences Exchange is offered by the College of Agricultural and Life Science (CALS) in partnership with IAP.

Students can take courses in English within the fields of Sustainable use of Natural Resources, Crop Science, Animal Science, Horticulture, Agricultural Economics, and Rural Development while also participating in an internship in a local forest or on a farm. The Czech University of Life Sciences (CULS) is situated on a beautiful campus in the suburbs of Prague and is home to 11,000 students.

Largely unspoiled by the ravages of time, and widely recognized as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Prague has recently re-emerged as one of Europe's leading cities. Serving as a major economic and cultural center of the Czech Republic, cobblestone streets, medieval towers and aged church spires integrate into the landscape of a contemporary social and cultural scene, making it a perfect location for a truly rewarding study abroad experience.
