Palacký University Olomouc is the second oldest university in the Czech Republic with more than six hundred years of history. The whole city of Olomouc, which itself has an outstanding historical background, lives by it. Nowadays, it is built mostly in neo-renaissance style which complements its reputation as a place of science and education, while being a city with the largest concentration of students per population in central Europe - over one fifth of its population consists of students alone. And as you can imagine, the city livesas such. There is no shortage of cultural events, festivals and renown student establishments. There is a reason why Olomouc is considered to be an „Oxford“ ofthe Czech Republic. If you would like to know more about our city, you can visit this site for an overall review.
Our department itself is the largest part of Palacký Faculty of Arts with its own dedicated historical building, laboratories and students’ body. Each year more than two and a half thousand students apply for studies here, however, only the first hundred is accepted. That makes our department the one with the lowest rate of acceptance in the republic, second only to medical faculties.
Considering the size of the city, we believe this interest is due to our reputation as a department with a family atmosphere, where we value an individual pursue of scientific knowledge and creativity.
