About the University of Hradec Králové

The University of Hradec Králové is a young established public educational institution founded in 1959. The university consists of four parts which are: the Faculty of Education, Faculty of Informatics and Management, Philosophical Faculty and Faculty of Science — all offer studies in more than a hundred fully accredited bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree courses and enroll around 9,000 students annually.

The rich spectrum of educational activity includes fields of economy, management and computer science at the Faculty of Informatics and Management; social sciences at the Philosophical Faculty; educational and artistic disciplines at the Faculty of Education, and science and technology courses at the Faculty of Science. The faculties prepare their students with an emphasis on their future successful professional life.

The continually developing university campus Na Soutoku (At the Confluence), is very conveniently located right in the city centre and is easily accessible for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers alike, and is linked by public transport to all parts of Hradec Králové.

The university pays great deal of attention to the care of its human potential (we tend to see potential in humans, rather than a resource), including international students and employees. The indisputable advantage of the university is its relatively intimate environment that allows students and teachers to establish personal contact, which helps to discover each pupil’s individual needs and set specific learning targets according to the student’s performance and the chosen specialization. Although we are modern school with focus on the future, we are proud to keep alive the legacy of the old European academic tradition.
