Slovak Republic in the students: how to lose with us?

With increasing range of different study abroad programs, but also because of the possibilities open movement of persons within the EU in recent years and the changing ethnic composition of students in our schools. A large percentage of them are Slovaks, who – and especially particulars related to their studies with us – is devoted to the following article.

The fact that Czech universities are attractive Jíloviště many students from Slovakia, witnessed by the numbers, based on available statistics, although those are not too many. According to, yet recent, the Czech Statistical Office studied in the academic year 2007/2008 universities 8% foreigners and 67% of them, a total of 18 350 persons were just Slovaks.

The MU year 6500 the Slovaks wanted

For example, Masaryk University in Brno last seen at the entrance exams altogether 6500 applications from Slovak candidates, which is more than a tenth of the total number of applications filed. At the same time last year it was about a thousand less. In the academic year 2004/2005 at the Masaryk University studied nearly two thousand Slovak students, in 2008/2009 there were already about three and a half thousand (out of 42 000) and this year they are even studied over four thousand. For Slovaks high interest in studying at Brno in MUNI can not only good road access, but perhaps a vision of European studies at the prestigious university and helpful attitude univerzty. "The leadership of Masaryk University long-term commitment to ensure that no foreign students, or Slovaks, having to overcome some limitations compared to their Czech counterparts. A certain percentage of foreign students belongs to every good European university. The presence of foreign students have also benefited for Czech students. With international students creates a better learning environment, increased competition, faced with different cultures and approaches to the study, growing international prestige of the University. The aim is therefore contrary to remove barriers that have kind of organizational or technical in nature rather. Since 2008, therefore, candidates can receive from Slovakia Study Test, whose successful management is a prerequisite for admission to seven of the nine faculties, also the Slovak Republic. With regard to applicants from Slovakia was also introduced to pay application fee online via credit card, which reduces the cost of sending money from abroad, "says Teresa Fojtová Rector of the University. Most Slovak students traditionally recorded in addition to a school in Brno, Prague, Ostrava and Olomouc. Slovak students while studying in smaller Czech schools, albeit in lower numbers. At the University of Ostrava today in the words of Susan Rector Tesarčíkové OU studying SR 168 people (more than nine thousand students), University of West Bohemia in Pilsen officers are required under the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Jirina Študlarové between registers less than 20 thousand students 120th

Slovaks eased the Czech-Slovak agreement

Although in our students with Slovak citizenship regarded as foreigners, their situation is compared to students from other countries after all somewhat different. It's linguistic proximity between the two countries, thanks to which the Slovak students odhodlávají easier to study in the Czech Republic and are willing to go through here and the whole cycle of learning rather than short-term assignments. Although their thanks to both countries joined the EU and various international treaties (particularly thanks to the one that was signed by the Ministries of Education of both countries in 2001) odpadlo many duties, there are a few things which stand before the filing of the Czech Slovak schools had students still count.
