The English College in Prague would like to play a small part in helping refugees fleeing from the totally unjust invasion of their country. In the first instance, we would like to accept up to ten Ukrainian refugee students across different year groups.
ECP is an academic school that delivers all its lessons in the medium of English, so any student hoping to come here must have a good proficiency in English. The minimum level for the lower years is B1, whereas B2 or C1 would be required for the higher years. However, no formal or certificate qualifications are needed.
We will be admitting students on a temporary basis first (4 – 12 weeks). If the relationship between the student and the school develops well, the place may become long-term. It will be important to see that the student is really accessing and benefitting from our education. In that case, we might be able to offer a permanent place at ECP leading to the International Baccalaureate (IB) qualification.
At the moment (25 March), we are processing 30 requests from Ukrainian students. Further applications via this form are therefore not possible at this stage. The registered applicants are invited into the school for an interview with the Deputy Head Pastoral, Mr Baxter. Following this face-to-face interview, a quick decision is made. The ECP requires potential students to have safe accommodation as it cannot offer accommodation itself.
