As an extra service TEFL Worldwide is able to arrange affordable housing for our students during the course. We work with a landlord who rents apartments and hotel rooms to our students for a reasonable price (about 11 Euros/night for 30 nights). The apartments offer basic amenities and are spread out in different buildings and are all within a 20 minute distance to the school. View photos here.
The benefit of the student housing is that the apartments and hotel are located in the same part of Prague as the school and are offered for a discounted price, compared to other short-term rentals. (Short-term rentals cost about twice the price than our student housing. The only way around that is by signing a lease for about a year and paying a security deposit and fee to a realtor.)
You have the option to arrange your own housing in Prague during the course but we can not assist with this. Expect to pay between 30 and 40 Euros/night for a hotel room or room in an apartment on a short-term basis. Hostels cost around 12 to 16 Euros/night and do not offer much privacy or security for your belongings.
Private room in a shared apartment: 8500kc
Private apartment: 10500kc
Sharing a room in either the shared apartment or private apartment: 6500kc per person.
The student housing through TEFL Worldwide is one of the lowest short-term prices you can find in Prague.
Internet is available.
Housing Options During the Course
1. A private room in a shared apartment
You will have your own private bedroom and a shared kitchen and bathroom. The rooms are located in apartments located in the same district of Prague as the school. The apartments are not all right next to each other. Most of the private rooms are within a 10 minute walking distance to the school. A few are about 20 minutes and it's necessary to take the metro just 2 or 3 stops from our school stop.
Rooms in the apartments are limited and are filled on a first come first serve basis. If the rooms are filled we can house you for the same price at a hotel. The hotel does not have a kitchen but you'll have a private room and a private bathroom.
This housing option is available for TEFL Worldwide students only.
2. A private one bedroom apartment
Rooms in the apartments are limited and are filled on a first come first serve basis. If the rooms are filled we can house you for the same price at a hotel.
After the course
For those planning on staying in Prague after the course our office staff prints offers for rooms and apartments for rent within your price range so you’ll have plenty to choose from. We can also put you in touch with numerous real estate agents and point you in the right direction on where to find available housing from links on the internet. We will do this before the end of the course to avoid any last-minute panic.
Should you decide to stay here after the course, you can easily find a private room in a furnished and shared apartment for around 6500kc to 8500kc/month. The majority of teachers in Prague choose to share an apartment while teaching in order to cut back on their living expenses. Should you choose to rent a private studio or one-bedroom flat you can find something for around 8500kc to 15,000kc +/month, depending on your preferences, location, size, furnishings, etc.
