** The opinion of students ** Mary K., 2 Year: I think that teachers are totally professional in their field. What you need, but a bit lacking, the mutual interaction – a dialogue, expression, sometimes we are led to a listening and writing and speaking Conspectus often missing! As for materials, and teachers are very helpful and many of them provide an IS. Often we are too dependent on self-study. At the study visit can go, but for our neighbors or to vzáleného Turkey and also Kyrgistánu or somewhere in there somewhere. And performance? It depends on the teacher. In some subjects a person is really the self-reliant. Because hate reading, so I at a disadvantage. I also think that you have a great overview. As you study religion, nations around the world. And who does not read and has a smaller list. But it is not time-consuming – at least not for me. Too much homework they write – more presentations in classes or write a lot of abstract and comments to the article, which is specified. Sometimes it's quite a crisis, as is often the philosophical texts, which is not much to understand, or in English. It should be of critical thinking, and completely break away from some of your opinion! And I think that is sometimes a stumbling block.
** FF ** University of Pardubice
** ** Course characteristics Pardubice is possible to study in undergraduate and then master cycle. University Web site says that the study is primarily focused in practice.

** ** The chances of adoption Number of candidates: 88 Number received: 40 (Applies to full-time undergraduate study. The data comes from admission for the year 2007/2008.)
** ** Student opinions Andy V, 1 Volume: People who have taught us that really know enough. That sometimes apologies do not come without a lecture, of course, sometimes happen, but not often. Regarding materials: everything I've needed to have the library in Hradec bother me when I'm going there once a month for books. In the university library or you are not registered, so I do not know anything about it. Study visits are available to me, are agreements with eight universities around the world, with any two people can go, and given how much we are (about 25), so I would say that better not be around. It is quite challenging, especially in time – if I had read only half of recommended books and read every day all semester and just do not make it. Homework depends mainly on the teachers. Last semester I wrote about 15 of them, this maybe there would be only 5 Otherwise, not many courses, the last and this semester I've got 9th
