The 2018 INOMICS Awards
Now in their second year, the INOMICS Awards 2018 once again recognise the career and study opportunities offered by universities and institutions around the world, measuring their reputation and attraction for INOMICS users. This year, however, we are dividing up the awards into categories to showcase the different qualities we recognise as important for our users, to better help advise them with their academic careers and acknowledge different institutions with different strengths. Within those categories, we have awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes for their respective excellence within each category, along with a shortlist of runners-up we believe deserve special recognition. The six categories we have awarded are Top Employers, Best Training Course to Develop Your Skills, Best place to do a Master’s, Best conference to attend, Best place to do a PhD & Best Summer School. By awarding the top institutions and universities through these categories, as well as highlighting the runners-up, we can share a more insightful light on 2017’s most relevant institutions for INOMICS users.
To choose the winners of the 2018 INOMICS Awards, we measured the interest of the INOMICS audience in the job and career opportunities offered by each institution and listed on INOMICS. The criteria took into account how many people read about opportunities at each institution, and how many of these interact with them, based on page views and clicks out to the announcements of each nominee. The INOMICS team would like to commend all the institutions featured in each of our award categories, as well as hundreds of smaller institutions offering niche training opportunities and job offers, for their educational value and research contribution to the field of economics.

Tuition Fees at Czech Universities – How and Where to Learn Czech and Study for Free
More than 43.000 foreign students are currently studying at universities in the Czech Republic. Many of them don't have to pay tuition fees, because they are enrolled in Czech taught degree programmes and therefore they study under the same conditions as Czech students do. While it might be difficult right now to move during the pandemic, it's always worth keeping yourself informed of what your future options are.
