Charles University offers assistance to everyone affected – on this website you will find an overview of all assistance and counselling activities.

We would also like to invite all students to our events in March, ranging from Carolinum guided tours to a wide range of seminars and online events – there is something for everyone! You may also start planning your summer to learn something new at the CU summer schools.
