The PRIGO College is one of the biggest and most successful colleges in the Czech Republic, the central part of Europe. It participates in a number of projects within the country and abroad, while the courses provided range from humanities and pedagogy to medical and natural sciences. Upon graduation, its students receive the DiS degree (i.e. “certified specialist”). Having its headquarters in Ostrava, the third populous city in the country, the College is close to the neighbouring Poland and Slovakia. Apart from Ostrava, it operates in three other cities: Havířov, Bruntál and Nový Jičín. It also cooperates with its affiliated PRIGO College Olomouc and PRIGO College Plzeň.
The College is a part of the PRIGO Group of Schools, which has an irreplaceable position at all levels of the educational system, starting with pre-school education and ending with university and third age university education. It is based on the application of the unique, trade-mark protected PriorityGO approach, which combines individualised teaching, modern didactic methods and respect for the challenges of contemporary society whereby education is seen as a lifelong philosophy and a continuous approach to life, not as a means to achieve other goals.
