Foundation Slovak Course at STU
Developed by the International Union of Youth, the Slovak course at STU (Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava) was created specifically for applicants planning to enter public and private universities in Slovakia. Its program differs from ordinary language courses – the main goal of our students is easy integration into a foreign environment, as well as further admission to European universities. And most importantly, foreign students can study for free at universities in Slovakia if they have a sufficient level of knowledge of the Slovak language.
During the course, you not only learn a new language but also get acquainted with the culture and history of Slovakia. In addition to intensive and high-quality lessons in the Slovak language with professors of the Slovak University of Technology, you will also find a rich cultural and entertainment program with excursions in Slovakia and neighboring countries.
The Slovak course at STU also includes coordinators’ support throughout the course. So, our specialists will help you with obtaining a visa, processing documents, finding a dormitory, choosing a university and specialty, as well as applying to a university. By taking part in classes and communicating with native speakers, our students quickly expand their vocabulary and learn to apply new knowledge in practice. This is the most effective way of learning, as you learn to speak Slovak much faster as you adapt to life in Europe. This course is quite enough to master the Slovak language at the level necessary for admission to STU or any other university in Slovakia.
