The University of Ostrava

The University of Ostrava (UO), with over 10,000 students, offers a very high quality level of education and research in the humanities, social and natural sciences, health studies, medicine and the fine arts. Its 6 faculties (Faculty of Science, Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Fine Arts, Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Social Studies, Pedagogical Faculty) offer an extremely wide range of fields of study as well as unconventional combinations of majors.
As well as being dynamic and intellectually challenging, UO also offers an international environment in which to study, with the university campus spread primarily throughout the old city centre, providing a stimulating environment to contemplate the living arts and sciences. Teaching at UO is research-driven, and its programmes are often taught by active researchers.
The university also proudly presents itself as a university full of leading figures in their fields of expertise who are not only scientists, but also inspirational and open-minded personalities with a vivid sense of creativity.
The small size of the university and its relative youth (founded in 1991) allows for a strongly individual approach to our students and flexible reactions to the needs of an up-to-date society and labour market. The university offers not only top quality education, but also many other possibilities for those who wish to fulfil their visions: whether it is the possibility to study other languages, found a student organisation, or gain other practical experience. The university actively searches for opportunities for students to raise their qualifications and help them kick off their careers.
At this point the University of Ostrava has established cooperation with several local organisations (such as a local studio of the public Czech Television) that provide students with valuable work experience. But the effort to offer more doesn’t only limit itself to our students and academicians. UO also puts emphasis on its 3rd role – after the first two roles – education and research – it is also an active player in the field of local social life and culture. UO and its faculties, student organisations and scientific institutes establish and promote hundreds of public events every year. These include free workshops, lectures, seminars, discussions, experiential events, scientific adventures, cultural festivals, charitable events, international gatherings, sports and cultural events, art exhibitions, happenings, alumni reunions, concerts, theatre plays, etc.
The university is simply an essential part of the city and its social life, and continues to cooperate with a steadily increasing number of cultural organisations and local institutions.
