Since 2017, CEBEX Summer School on Behavioral Sciences offers intensive ECTS summer courses for both beginners and advanced learners. Our venue located just around the corner from the Prague city center provides a unique opportunity to explore the beauties of the Czech Republic's capital from various perspectives. In addition, we pride ourselves on having a laid-back international faculty that often joins the out-of-school networking activities we organize for our students. Until now, more than 150 students from around 40 countries and 60 universities worldwide completed our courses, enjoyed long summer evenings with a drink in hand and a smile on the face. So are you ready to join the club?
Courses: Crash, Advanced, or both?
You can choose from two crash courses for beginners (Crash Course in Behavioral Economics and Introduction to R) and four advanced courses (Evolutionary Behavioral Economics, Behavioral Public Policy, Behavioral Development Economics, and Behavioral Data Analysis in R). Advanced courses are designed as follow-ups to the crash courses – generally speaking, if you had a bachelor level course on the given topic, you are good to go only with an advanced course. If not, we strongly recommend you to attend a crash course in addition to the advanced course.
Covid-19: Face-to-face or online?
As for now (June), it looks like we are good to go face-to-face. However, you can still choose if you attend in face-to-face or online form. In case you have paid face-to-face form, and the coronavirus situation will not allow us to run the summer school in this form, or if the restrictions will not allow you to come, you attend the summer school online and we refund the amount you paid extra for the face-to-face form.
The CEBEX Summer School venue is located in Prague city center. Near the venue you can find Wenceslas Square, Old Town Square, National Theatre or Náplavka Riverbank.
Rich coffee breaks, tasty lunches and dinners are secured during the whole program. Breakfasts are part of the accommodation.
Apart from studying experience, CEBEX Summer School offers an unique opportunity to build new friendships with people from different parts of the world and to network with lecturers. To make it easier for you, we have prepared an evening program. You can look forward to beach volleyball, geolocation games in the city center, walking tour to Petřín hill, and farewell party on the last evening.
