It is mentioned among the oldest Czech towns as early as 1225. At the beginning of the 14th century it became the dowry and royal seat of Czech queens. That is why since that time it has had the contemporary name - “the Castle of the Queen”. The town itself flourished economically in the 15th century, but later it was destroyed in the Thirty Years´ War. The historical core of the town is formed by several major buildings: the cathedral of the Holy Ghost that dates back to the beginning of the 14th century, White Tower built at the end of the 16th century, and the baroque Jesuit church of the Assumption of Mary the Virgin with a convent dating back to the 2nd half of the 17th century. Towards the end of the 18th century the town was changed into a late baroque fortress. Since 1884 the character of the town as a fortress was gradually transformed - the town got rid of the shell of the fortification and further possibilities for its development became available. Between the two World Wars the town developed into the centre of modern Czech architecture. After World War II Hradec Králové became the administrative and cultural centre of Eastern Bohemia - with theatres, galleries, museums, high schools and colleges. Besides the Faculty of Pharmacy it is also the seat of the Medical Faculty, Charles University; Military Medical Academy; and the independent University of Pedagogy.

University of Economics Prague - Faculty of Business Administration

Master Czech Republic Prague September 2016

Faculty of Business Administration - University of Economics Prague   The history of the Faculty dates back to 1953 when the University of Economics, Prague was founded, and within which the Faculty of Production Economics was established; after the 1989 transformation, it transitioned into the Faculty of Business Administration (FBA). Throughout its sixty-year history, the Faculty has educated and developed graduates for positions in the  microsphere, i.e. to various p… [+] ositions – including senior management – in economics, business, marketing, personnel and other areas of business as well as non-profit organizations. The Faculty is one of five faculties of the University of Economics, Prague based at the Zizkov campus; its offices are located in the modern so-called Paradise Building.   In recent history, FBA’s predominant academic focus at all levels of study (Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral) has been directed towards Business Administration and Management. This focus has recently been extended to include undergraduate and graduate studies focused on Arts Management.   Faculty teaching takes place mainly in the Czech language, but FBA also provides education at the Bachelor’s degree level in Russian and English. At the graduate level, FBA offers a Master’s degree in International Management, taught in English, which is organized in cooperation with 28 leading universities from around the world and which has received top rankings for a number of years by the Financial Times. At present, the Faculty also organizes numerous continuing education programmes, including MBA studies.   FBA’s research activities are, by their nature, more applied research. Every year, many current economic and managerial issues are addressed at the Faculty. Academics are well-known publically as authors of scientific publications in the fields of business economics, management, marketing, sociology, psychology, human resources, logistics, etc.   Virtually since its inception, FBA has maintained close links with the private and public sectors. Corporate partners offer the Faculty’s students a wide range of topics on which to focus their bachelor's and master's theses; in addition, top executives enrich the teaching environment by providing many attractive topics from real business life.   A modern higher educational institution must have extensive international contacts. In the case of our Faculty, we are involved in an international study programme called CEMS (The Global Alliance in Management Education); we also provide numerous fellowships for students and lectures by visiting professors from abroad, etc.   It is the ambition of FBA’s management for the Faculty to take a leading position among Central European higher educational institutions focused on preparing economically and managerially savvy experts for the field. Repeated inclusion of FBA in the prestigious ranking of economically oriented schools by the Financial Times suggests that it is going in the right direction.     Study and Pedagogical Activities   Education in the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes is in the full-time form. Studies in the Master's degree in Business Administration can also be done on a part-time basis. Similarly, teaching in Doctoral programmes is implemented on both a full-time and part-time basis. There is no tuition charged for programmes taught in the Czech language.  All other programmes charge tuition fees. FBA also implements various training courses within the framework of lifelong learning, including an MBA programme, under similar financial conditions. There has long been considerable interest in studying at FBA. [-]

Master MA Czech Republic Prague September 2016

Film and TV School (FAMU) Film and TV School (FAMU) is an integral part of The Academy of Performing Arts, which was founded after World War II, in 1947. It is the fifth oldest film school in the world. Its graduates include many influential filmmakers and scriptwriters, many known within international contexts such as Oscar winners or laureates of international film festivals. In addition, most people working in the Czech Republic’s film and TV industry in artistic or p… [+] roduction positions, as well as still-photographers in various media are graduates from FAMU. The 1960s was perhaps the most brilliant period in the history of both Czech cinema and FAMU. The students and professors offered the most progressive and challenging ideas to the overall social discourse of the time. After the occupation of Czechoslovakia in August 1968 several FAMU professors and graduates had to leave the country. Some of them contributed to the development of film art and industry in the world and played significant roles in the development of film education. After the fall of communism in Europe, FAMU maintained its status as the national film school but at the same time opened its gates for international students from all over the World.FAMU is a founding member of CILECT (World association of film schools), of the European League of Institutes of Arts (ELIA), and of the European Association of Cinema and Television Schools GEECT. Works by its graduates have received many awards at international festivals and have often been co-produced with domestic television networks and broadcast over the nation. STUDIES AT FAMU = FILMMAKING + WRITING + ACADEMIC DISCIPLINES FAMU International has various programs in English, from one to six week summer workshops to one semester programs organized abroad to one year programs to full master degree programs. Generally speaking, each program consists of a varying proportion of practical filmmaking with assistance, writing skills connected to practical processes and academic disciplines related to the audiovisual field with their reflections and methodologies. Each program has different conditions for admission. Some shorter programs (usually the one semester or summer workshop programs) are based on contracts with particular universities or academic agencies. These programs are run by FAMU regarding curricular matters, but admissions are administered by the particular university or academic agency (CIEE or CET) with whom FAMU is contracted. This section of our website gives complete information on the characteristic of each program and links to section for applicants, where you can find information on admissions.

Having been inspired by Gottfried Semper` s ideas and concepts, the School of Decorative Arts in Prague was founded in 1885. At that time it represented the first and only state school in Czech lands. The school itself was built between 1882 and 1885 according to the project designed by Františěk Schmoranz junior and Jan Machytka.   After the Czech universities and colleges were closed by the Nazis in 1939, the School of Decorative Arts took over the role of the Academy du… [+] ring the war period. In concordance with Act from 1946 it finally acquired a new status and subsequently a new title Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design (AAAD). In 1947 the study length was prolonged to five years and the studios were grouped in the following departments: applied architecture, applied painting, applied graphic design, textile and clothing industry, applied stone sculpture, glass processing, porcelain and ceramics.    AAAD celebrated its 100th anniversary of the school`s existence in 1985 by proclaiming to adhere to the cultural- political program of the communist party and never ending struggle for progress. Such a tendency was maintained even by the following rector Jan Mikula.After November 1989 a number of teachers were made redundant and the organization of AAAD departments and study system was changed. Under the then-rectors Josef Hlaváček, who took up his position in 1994, Zdeněk Ziegler, Jiří Pelcl, Boris Jirků and the current rector Pavel Liška, the AAAD is acquiring a completely new face. Nowadays, the university has joined several important international projects, enriched the educational system in additional fine and applied arts disciplines, and last but not least, focused on publishing books on art and organizing school exhibitions.   AAAD consists of twenty four studios which are grouped within five departments: architecture, design, fine art, applied arts and graphics.

Charles University in Prague Faculty of Physical Education and Sport

Master Czech Republic Prague September 2016

Faculty of Physical Education and Sport is one of the seventeen faculties based on the venerable Charles University. Czech higher physical education dates back to the period before World War I. At the beginning, there were various educational courses at the Faculty of Medicine. Efforts of progressive scientists and pedagogues such as prof. Smotlacha, Borovanský, Jirásek and Weigner led to the Bill of establishing “Tyrš’s State Institute of Physical Education” in 1930.… [+] This idea was implemented after the War by forming “Institute for Education of Physical Education at Charles University”. In 1948 the Institute was incorporated in the Faculty of Education, out of which, independent Higher School of Education was formed in 1953. A new higher school – “Institute of Physical Education and Sport” was founded in 1953 together with “Research Institute of Physical Education”. Both institutions provided education for pedagogical, scientific and managing workers who wanted to pursue their career in the area of physical education and sport science. Within reorganization of higher schools, which took place in 1958, three departments of Higher School of Education were joined to the Institute of Physical Education and Sport. The new formation was joined to Charles University as one of its faculties. [-]


Charles University in Prague Faculty of Education

Master Czech Republic Prague September 2016

The Faculty of Education is one of seventeen faculties associated under the umbrella of the Charles University in Prague. Its primary goal is to train teachers and other pedagogical personnel for all types of schools and school systems, at various levels of study (Bachelors and Masters) and forms. While five other faculties within the Charles University are also officially qualified to train teachers, what makes the Faculty of Education unique is the span and complexity… [+] of its educational focus. The Faculty provides university-level pre- and in-service teacher education in the following fields: Humanities, Social Sciences, Art Education, Physical Education, Mathematics and Natural Sciences. The Faculty is currently training approximately 4200 students in both BA and MA study programmes, plus nearly 10 000 students taught within a wide range of combined forms of study programmes, mainly as a part of professional teacher development. The Faculty is also opened to tuition-paying foreign students who can enrol to programmes taught in English. The Faculty participates in the international Erasmus Mundus programme aimed at facilitating student and teacher mobility. BA and MA study programmes In 2006, the faculty adopted the ECTS credit system which is acknowledged in all EU countries and thereby allows for easier student mobility within the EU. The student of the Faculty of Education typically studies a combination of two subjects. Bachelor study programmes The 3-year BA study programme aims to give the students substantial knowledge in the two chosen subjects, yet it does not constitute a teaching degree – the BA graduates are not officially qualified to teach. That is why the structure of compulsory and elective courses offered within programme is tailored in a way that builds up the professional expertise in the chosen subjects rather than the educational skills and teaching competences of the students. The BA syllabus consequently includes only a few courses in pedagogical and psychological disciplines. However, the syllabus also includes a compulsory motivational teaching practice which should help the students decide whether they want to continue in the follow-up MA study to earn a teaching degree. Master study programmes The graduates of the 2-year follow-up MA programme will have acquired substantial expertise in the professional area covered by the two core subjects of their choice and, in addition to this, they will also have developed their pedagogical, psychological and didactic competences, crucial for any teaching profession. Thus, apart from compulsory and elective courses which seek to solidify the students’ professional expertise, the MA syllabus also includes specifically tailored didactic courses and a fully-fledged student teaching practice, all of which are integrated in an organic and interconnected system. The graduate of the follow-up MA study is fully qualified to teach at higher primary and secondary schools. History The Faculty of Education at the Charles University in Prague was founded in November 1946, based upon one of the first presidential decrees to be passed after the re-establishment of the independent state of Czechoslovakia, and also upon the newly adopted law which sought to establish education faculties at all universities of that day. This was the culmination of lasting efforts to ensure substantial university education for teachers at all levels, both primary and secondary. The Faculty of Education at the Charles University was officially opened on November 15, 1946 in the Prague Rudolfinum (The House of Artists), and the festive launch was attended by the Czech president, Dr. Edvard Beneš. However, the 1953 school reform succeeded in dismantling all Czech faculties of education. The newly established institution for training the teachers of general subjects was called The Pedagogical University – The Higher School of Pedagogy. Yet another reform of the Czech educational system (carried out in 1959) gave birth to Pedagogical institutes in Prague and Brandýs nad Labem which were designed to train primary teachers, while future secondary school teachers were supposed to study their core subjects at various university faculties, as had been the case before 1946. The Czech faculties of education were not re-established until 1964. It is worth mentioning that secondary school teachers of art, music and physical education were initially trained at other respective Charles University faculties while alsoattending some pedagogical and psychological courses at the Faculty of Education. The mid-1970s saw the unification and merging of the training networks of primary and secondary school teachers and the extension of the respective length of study up to 5 years. Those were rather unhappy times, as many departments were dismantled or appended to various other University faculties. Over the 50 years of the Faculty’s existence, a number of noteworthy experts in various fields have taught in its ranks, such as Cyril Bouda, V. Hrabal, J. Charvát, Otakar Chlup, L. Kopeckij, J. Plavec, V. Tardy and F. Vodička, to mention just a few. [-]


Charles University in Prague Faculty of Arts

Master MA Czech Republic Prague September 2016

“Since the beginning of my studies, I made it my principle that whenever I find a more correct opinion, I will immediately abandon my own, less correct opinion and joyfully embrace the opinion which is more justified, knowing that all we know is merely an infinitesimal fragment of what we do not know.” Jan Hus, philosopher and Church reformer, alumnus of the Faculty of Arts The Faculty of Arts at Charles University is currently one of the largest and most important res… [+] earch and educational institutions in the arts and humanities in Central Europe. The Faculty was founded in 1348 by the Czech king and later Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV who established it as one of the four faculties of the Prague university, later named after him Charles University – the oldest university in Central Europe east of France and north of the Alps. Ever since, it has been the intellectual centre of the Czech lands: alumni of the Faculty, their deeds and ideas, have been shaping the Czech society and culture and at the crucial moments of Czech history, the Faculty of Arts has always been at the very heart of the events. With close to 1,000 staff members, over 9,000 students and a growing international student population of almost 1,000 students from all over the world, the Faculty of Arts is a vibrant and diverse academic environment. Thanks to the flexible system of more than 700 possible double-subject degree combinations, the BA and MA degrees allows the students to focus on two subjects to the same extent, which increases their adaptability and provides them with more opportunities for their future career. The acceptance level is only 27%, which is a prerequisite for a more individual approach, necessary if the humanities are to be taught and studied seriously. Students and researchers come to the Faculty of Arts to work in more than seventy subjects – a larger number than the majority of comparable institutions in the world can offer. Charles University as such ranks among the top 2% universities in the world and the Faculty itself ranks among the first 200 universities in the world in a number of disciplines.The Faculty attracts the most talented students from the Czech Republic and the number of applications for BA, MA and PhD programmes amounts to 10,000 every year. The remarkably wide range of disciplines at the Faculty of Arts includes philosophy and religious studies; history and archaeology; psychology; sociology and political science; theatre, film and music studies and a number of philological programmes which combine a rigorous study of a given language and courses in the associated literary, historical and cultural background. The Faculty offers courses in more than a hundred languages, dead and living, such as Albanian, Akkadian, Arabic, Armenian, Avestan, Azerbaijani, Basque, Bengali, Bulgarian, Czech (also special degrees for foreigners and for the deaf), Catalan, Church Slavonic, Chinese, Croatian, Danish, Dutch, English, Eblaite, Ancient Egyptian, Finnish, French, German, Gothic, Greek (ancient and modern), Hebrew (Old Testament and modern), Hindi, Hittite, Hungarian, Irish, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Lithuanian, Latvian, Lusatian Sorbian, Macedonian, Mongolian, Norwegian, Old Norse, Old Irish, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Sanskrit, Slovak, Slovenian, Serbian, Spanish, Swedish, Tamil, Tocharian, Tibetan, Turkish, Ugaritic, Ukrainian, Yiddish and Vietnamese. The research output of the Faculty, measured in the number of monographs and articles, is larger than that of any other institution in the humanities in the Czech Republic – which reflects both the quality of research and the level of tutoring. Every year, the Faculty hosts a number of international conferences and events of general cultural significance – exhibitions, concerts, lectures, public debates. In the last few years, the Faculty of Arts publishing house has earned prestigious awards and is now competing with the largest academic publishers in the country. Did you know that… … the Department of Egyptian Studies has been working in Egypt for the last fifty years and has made significant discoveries? Their discovery of the tomb of an unknown Egyptian queen in Abusir in autumn 2014 was voted one of the 10 greatest archaeological finds in 2014. … in 2014, Professor Tomáš Halík was awarded the prestigious Templeton Prize, given to people who “made an exceptional contribution to affirming life’s spiritual dimension”? … Professor Martin Hilský translated the complete works of William Shakespeare into Czech? History The Faculty of Arts was founded as one the four original faculties of Charles University – the oldest institution of higher learning in Central Europe – by the issue of the Foundation Charter on 7 April 1348. Charles IV, in pursuit of his state and dynastic policy, strove to establish the Kingdom of Bohemia as the centre of the Holy Roman Empire. His plan was to concentrate scholars from home and abroad in Prague, which became his residential city, and thus bolster the base of his power. In pre-Hussite times, two-thirds of all students of the university were students of the Artistic Faculty where they acquired the knowledge needed to be able to study at the other three faculties (theology, medicine, law). One of the privileges enjoyed by the faculty was the right to confer master’s and doctoral degrees which entitled their bearers to teach at any European university. During the two centuries following the Hussite wars, the Faculty of Liberal Arts was the heart of the whole university. Since the seventeenth century it was called the Philosophical Faculty. From the beginning until the mid-nineteenth century, it served as a faculty whose programme was designed to provide preparatory higher education for the future students of the other faculties. From the eighteenth century onwards, the number of academic disciplines started to increase: besides philosophy, it was possible to study aesthetics, mathematics, astronomy, natural sciences, engineering, economics, education and history. In the nineteenth century, apart from oriental studies, archaeology and religious studies, significant developments took place in the realm of philology and degrees in Czech, Italian, French, English and Hebrew were introduced. After the reforms of 1849–1850, the faculty was liberated from its propaedeutic function and acquired an equal with the other faculties. In 1897, women were allowed to study at the Philosophical Faculty. The Faculty retained its significance in the Czech lands even after the division of the Prague University into a Czech part and a German part in 1882. During the so-called First Czechoslovak Republic (1918–1938), the life of the university was shaped especially by the secession of the Faculty of Natural Sciences in 1920 and by the acquisition of a new building on the Vltava embankment – the one where you still find most of the departments and lecture halls. The closure of the Faculty by the Nazi occupation in 1939 was followed by brutal persecution of both teachers and students. The productive, enthusiastic years after the end of the Second World War came to a violent end in 1948 with the communist coup d’ état and the following forty years of communist regime. The forced departure of dozens of outstanding teachers and the introduction of Marxist-Leninist subjects resulted in the rapid decline of research and teaching. Hopes for a widespread social change in the LATE 1960s, the so-called “Prague Spring” during which the Faculty started to invite back significant personalities of that time, such as the philosopher Jan Patočka, were crushed by the Soviet invasion in August 1968. In January 1969, Jan Palach, a student of the Faculty, committed suicide by self-immolation in political protest. The square where the main building is located and the Faculty of Arts central library bear his name. After the fall of the communist regime and the departure of its compromised followers in 1989, the Faculty established itself once again as one of the most prestigious institutions in the humanities both in the Czech Republic and in Central Europe. Our alumni and former staff members include: the Church reformer and philosopher Jan Hus (c. 1370–1415), whose thoughts inspired Martin Luther the mathematician, logician and philosopher Bernard Bolzano (1781–1848) the linguist Josef Jungmann (1773–1847), one of the creators of modern Czech language the linguist and orientalist Bedřich Hrozný (1879–1952), decipherer of the ancient Hittite language founders and members of the influential Prague Linguistic Circle, such as Vilém Mathesius (1882–1945), Vladimír Skalička (1909–1991), Jan Mukařovský (1891–1975), Bohuslav Havránek (1893–1978) and René Wellek (1903–1995) the chemist Jaroslav Heyrovský (1890–1967), inventor of the polarographic method and recipient of the Nobel Prize in 1959 the famous writers Alois Jirásek (1851–1930), Karel Čapek (1890–1938), Ladislav Fuks (1923–1994), Josef Škvorecký (1924–2012) and Michal Ajvaz (1949) the politicians Milan Rastislav Štefánik (1880–1919), Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk (1850–1937) and Edvard Beneš (1884–1948), the latter two became Czechoslovak presidents the sociologist and politician Alice Masaryková (1879–1966), founder of social education in Czechoslovakia the art historian and archaeologist Růžena Vacková (1901–1982) Jan Patočka (1907–1977), one of the most important Central European philosophers of the twentieth century, student of Martin Heidegger, Edmund Husserl and Eugen Fink Jan Palach (1948–1969), student who immolated himself in protest against the Soviet invasion of 1968 the psychologist Zdeněk Matějček (1922–2004), author of ground-breaking studies in children’s psychology [-]
