Financial Aid

Financial aid in the form of a reduced tuition fee may be awarded to students who demonstrate exceptional promise and financial need. Financial aid is made available particularly to permanent residents of the Czech Republic and individuals from developing countries.

Although in the past the PSTS has consistently awarded financial aid every year, students are advised that there is no entitlement to financial aid in any case, nor can DAMU assure any or all applications for financial aid will be met. Applications for financial assistance can be made only after you have been accepted and DAMU has received your course deposit. You may then contact us for a financial aid application.

Other costsnot included in PSTS tuition payment

Performances

Tickets prices can range from 50 CZK (students) — 500 CZK, depending on the venue.

Food

The average cost for an average meal in an average restaurant can range between 100-200 CZK.

Many local grocery shops as well as large chain supermarkets can be easily accessed in the city center. Cooking facilities may be available at recommended accommodation.

Accommodation

DAMU does not provide or arrange accommodation as part of the PSTS. Students must arrange for their housing independently. DAMU will facilitate the process by recommending affordable private accommodation (shared apartments, low-cost hotels).

Last year's accommodation costs ranged from around 350 CZK per person per night (shared accommodation).

Students are strongly encouraged to arrange housing immediately upon confirmation that their course will take place.

Insurance

Students must make their own arrangements for accident and health insurance. DAMU cannot accept any liability for any student's safety, health or welfare. Proof of insurance will be required with payment.

Important note about making travel arrangements!

Before students make final travel arrangements (purchase plane tickets, pay for housing, etc.),
they are advised to wait until confirmation from DAMU that their course will take place! Once

the minimum class sized has been reached, students will be informed, latest by May 1st, 2014. In case the unlikely case that a course must be cancelled, students will be offered priority placement in another course or their deposit/payment will be returned within 30 days.
