There is currently only possible to study at the Philosophical Faculty of the University of Hradec Kralove (refer to „this article“:…ricka-studia). The local Department of Political Science has a link to a private University Jean Peiageta in Praia in Cape Verde (three-month stay), State University of Cabo Verde in Praia (three or holiday stay) and the State University of Accra in Ghana. The latter school has established partnerships with, among others, Mendel University in Brno. More information can be found eg in „this site“:…_uchazec.php.
