Academics on the Study Abroad program

Teaching style

UNYP features small classes (average class size: 21 students) and a dynamic, interactive teaching style. UNYP's small student-to-teacher ratio makes it easier for each student to get an appropriate level of attention in the classroom.


Like the student population, UNYP’s instructors are internationally diverse: one-third are American, one-third are Czech, and one-third from over 20 other countries. All are highly qualified academically and professionally, and bring to the classroom a diverse range of skills, experiences, and outlooks.
