The International Union of Youth (Mezinárodní Svaz Mládeže z.s.) is the organization that brings together students and young people from all over the world. We have been operating in the Czech Republic since 2007. During these years we have created a variety of educational, cultural and entertaining programs for our students, and developed close partnership with a variety of universities in Prague. The International Union of Youth believes that education abroad and student exchange enhance the educational mission of many universities in the Czech Republic. Specifically, the International Union of Youth works with students, international faculties and university departments to create, manage and promote study programs abroad.
The International Union of Youth offers a complete range of services for students who would like to study abroad and consults them on academic, cultural and financial issues. In a similar way, the IUY advisers welcome newly arrived international students and give them guidance about campus life. IUY also facilitates international agreements and programs and acts as a connecting link between universities and future students.
The International Union of Youth’s project Education in Prague provides essential information, consultations and preparatory assistance for young people who would like to learn more about the education system in the Czech Republic and plan to study in its prestigious state and private universities.
In addition to providing the highest academic standards, IUY is also aimed to give students accurate account about the Central Europe culture. Since the moment of its creation, IUY has succeed in this mission.
The International Union of Youth had started out as an event company. We grew and in 2007 have established the main direction of our work – education of students around the world. Today we work with over 2 000 students every year and offer wide range of educational programs in the Czech Republic.

We provide counseling services, educational assistance, visa support, immigration advice, offer accommodation, insurance, transfer from the airport, organize cultural programs, entertainment and traveling.
We have short summer programs which are aimed at getting students familiar with the Czech language, visiting main sightseeing sites and getting to know Czech culture. What is more, we offer long-term programs for half a year and full academic year, main goal of which is to learn Czech language and pass entrance exams to universities. We cooperate with a variety of institutions in Prague that offer foundation programs and full degree programs in both English and Czech languages.

We are responsible for arranging Slav Evening which is aimed at participation of all Slav nations in Prague. Also, on the request we organize International Student Balls, as well as balls for specific universities. Furthermore, we initiate variety of festivals which estimate more than 20 000 participants.
Every year the International Union of Youth participates in educational fairs which have proven to be useful not only for our organization but for our partners as well. Our experience in participating in these exhibitions has been very productive and has effectively helped us reach our target audience.
These fairs help to attract new customers and catch the attention of our prospective students. During these exhibitions pupils get a chance to get acquainted with schools and the programs that they offer.
The main aim of these fairs is to promote colleges, universities and schools that we work with, to attract new clients and to gain new partnerships with other organizations.
