18.7.2017 - Popularity of study stays abroad is growing, Czechs are increasingly borrowing money to pay for their children's education

Language study stays are becoming increasingly popular among young Czech people. They offer an opportunity to master a language better, learn how to manage money and get to know foreign cultures. When buying a stay, however, they have to go deep into their pockets as a half-year stay across the ocean can cost hundreds of thousands of korunas. Study stays are often funded by parents, who, however, often do not have enough money. Thanks to favourable conditions, more and more clients are using consumer loans to finance these stays.
