AIFS Local Staff, Summer Program

AIFS Resident Director

Renata Sluneckova

Email: rsluneckova@aifs.co.uk

Hello everybody, I am sending you my best wishes from Prague, my home for more than 20 years. I received my Masters degree from Palackeho University in Olomouc, Czech Republic and before joining AIFS in 2014 I worked for the Open Media Institute in Prague, the partner organization of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, making local arrangements for BBC film crews and for journalists based in Prague.

My experience of living in different parts of the Czech Republic means I am a great resource for you when you are in Prague. You will find me in the AIFS office, right in the center of the city, a short walk from the university classroom buildings and the main attractions of this most beautiful city.

AIFS Campus Staff with First Aid Training

Because health and safety are top priorities at AIFS, at least one member of the staff at this campus has taken a first aid course in order to be available to help any student until a doctor or nurse can provide help. This is just one of many services that we provide to our students.

Student Residence

You will live in a student residence, conveniently located within easy reach of stores, restaurants and public transport.

  • Double room with another AIFS student
  • Access to kitchen facilities
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • 24-hour security
  • Laundry facilities on site
  • Single rooms may be available on a space-available basis

Meals

Students enjoy the flexibility of being able to purchase meals at the university cafeterias or local Czech restaurants, or buy groceries to cook at home.

  • Meal allowance loaded onto an ATM cash card to subsidize the cost of purchasing meals and groceries during your stay.

Transportation

Public transportation is very convenient in Prague. You will receive a transportation pass to ride the metro, buses and trams.

Cultural Activities

Learning does not begin or end in the classroom. To help you get a true taste of Czech culture, a wide range of cultural activities and excursions are included in your program fee. The Resident Director organizes a variety of activities which usually include:

  • Welcome dinner in a traditional Czech restaurant
  • Walking tours which may include: Old Town and Charles Bridge, Prague Castle and Gardens, New Town, Mala Straná (Lesser Quarter), and alternative culture/street art
    Performances such as ballet, classical and jazz concerts, local festivals, visits to famous Prague cafés (coffee and cake included)
  • Nature reserve Divoká Šárka
  • Visit to the Jewish Museum, synagogues and cemetery
  • Sports day
  • Volunteer activity

Please note that students may need to pay a small additional fee for some of the activities above.
