The University of Hradec Králové is a vibrant institution, and its constant development is reflected both in academic and construction activities: new faculties and institutes are being established, new study programmes are being accredited, and the construction of the University campus is in unremitting progress. The University campus is situated conveniently in the town centre within walking distance of the other university buildings, the Educational and Scientific Library, and the old town.

Graduates. The University of Hradec Králové prepares qualified specialists that succeed on the local labour market as well as abroad. In 2010, the University received the Diploma Supplement Label, a certificate issued by the European Commission confirming that the University meets all standards of European tertiary education institutions. The document is given automatically to all graduates, and it guarantees worldwide recognition of the diploma from the University of Hradec Králové.

The university consists of five parts: Faculty of Education, Faculty of Informatics and Management, Philosophical Faculty, Faculty of Science and Institute of Social Work.

FACULTY OF SCIENCE

The Faculty was established on 1st September 2010, consisting of five Departments - Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Informatics and Mathematics, including three undergraduate courses, one postgraduate course and the total of 271 students. Since the start we have managed to increase the number of accredited study programs at seventeen, out of which there are two doctoral programs, six master´s and nine bachelor´s degree programs. Besides these new and successful accreditation procedures, we have also managed to gain our first inaugural law in the field of Theory of Education in Physics.

Today there are about eight hundred students studying at the Faculty. Likewise other faculties of science, the Faculty of Science UHK offers traditional courses including Systematic Biology and Ecology, Applied Biology, Physical Measurements and Modeling, Chemistry, and specializations for future techers at secondary schools of all other departments of UHK. In addition to the mentioned courses we are proud to offer also one less typical field of study- Financial and Insurance Mathematics.

Our faculty also provides and covers teaching undergraduates of the Faculty of Education UHK - science disciplines and mathematics in specializations for future teachers at elementary schools – the first stage, and then science specializations for future teachers at elementary schools – the second stage.

Science education should go hand in hand with science research, and so do we at our Faculty – we have set up many scientific challenges in both basic and applied research. As the result we can already boast a number of achievements. To name some of them: we have participated in projects of the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic, we have won the first project of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic, the project of the Czech -Polish Mutual Cooperation - KONTAKT II and 7th Framework Program of the EU.
