The Student of Prague (German: Der Student von Prag) is a 1926 silent film by actor and filmmaker Henrik Galeen. The film is a remake of The Student of Prague (1913), and is considered as Galeen's most important film since The Golem (1915).

The film crew involved some famous names: designer Hermann Warm, ; Günther Krampf, cinematographer ; and the actors Werner Krauss, Conrad Veidt, Dagny Servaes,[1] Leni Riefenstahl[1] and Elizza La Porta. Der Student von Prag made La Porta a well-known actress.
