On top of this, students are given sufficient space for extracurricular activities, whether in the university sports facilities (river access, gym, sporting fields), culture (film clubs, student theatres, magazines, radio) or for example in the context of social events (the Student May “Majáles” festival, fancy dress balls, department parties). There is always something for everyone! The university town of Olomouc The town of Olomouc with its cultural, military and ecclesiastical tradition is now mainly a town of education. The twenty-three thousand university students, the large body of teachers and research workers, and hundreds of secondary school pupils in relation to the population of one hundred thousand make Olomouc a town of intellectual inspiration. You can meet the students everywhere, in the Central University Library, the Research Library, and the Municipal Library, in the wonderful parks below the medieval walls surrounding the historical town, in the theatre, museums, at concerts of the Moravian Philharmonic and in the art galleries. You will meet them in the halls of residence in the Envelope area, full of student activities, in sports grounds, and in boats on the river Morava. This unique atmosphere attracts foreign students to Olomouc. They study full-time or attend special courses at the university. Olomouc is an ideal venue for international academic conferences; foreign visitors have already called the town a “Moravian Oxford”. The presentation of Palacký University Olomouc at masterstudies.com is supported by the project Study in Moravia/Czech Republic.

History of the university The University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences Brno was founded on December 12, 1918, by Act no. 76/1918 Coll. upon the creation of the Czechoslovak State Veterinary University in Brno. It was the first university to be formed after the creation of the Republic of Czechoslovakia. It was founded within the premises of what had once been cavalry barracks and a provincial training school. The university's founder and the first rector was Prof.… [+] MUDr. et MVDr. h.c. Eduard Babák. Classes began on November 17, 1919. From its inception, the university developed as a single-faculty university aimed at veterinary medicine (veterinary sciences). In 1975 two colleges were created: the College of General Veterinary Medicine (later renamed College of Veterinary Medicine) and the College of Veterinary Medicine - Food Hygiene (later renamed Veterinary Hygiene and Ecology). In 1990, two faculties were created - the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, focused on veterinary medicine, and the Faculty of Veterinary Hygiene and Ecology, aimed at veterinary hygiene. In 1991, a third faculty was added - the Faculty of Pharmacy, geared towards human and veterinary pharmaceutical sciences. Since 1994, the university has been officially called the University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences Brno. Faculty of Pharmacy Faculty of Pharmacy has been one of three faculties of the University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Brno since 1991. Between 1952 and 1960 the studies of Pharmacy were conducted at Masaryk University in Brno, then at Komenský University in Bratislava. The standard Master study programme in Pharmacy takes five years and is based on a credit system. The Faculty is a member of the Association of European Faculties of Pharmacy and its graduates meet all the requirements for the profession as defined by the European Union. In the initial two years, students revise and broaden their knowledge of elementary natural and medical subjects to the level required for understanding specific subjects from the field of Pharmacy. Students attend lectures and seminars and take part in practical pharmacy placements. During the following years of study, they work on their thesis. The programme is concluded by defending the thesis and taking the final state examination. Then the students are awarded the Master degree (abbreviated Mgr.). The study programme is compliant with EU directive 2005/36/EC. Graduates awarded the Master degree can later sit for a thorough state exam including an advanced thesis defence. After passing they are awarded the "Doctor of Pharmacy" degree (abbreviated PharmDr.). Graduates can apply for postgraduate study programmes in five accredited branches of Pharmacy. After defending their dissertation and passing the final state examination they are awarded the PhD degree. The Faculty closely cooperates with industry and runs a Faculty Pharmacy on the premises. It cooperates with private and public pharmacies in the country where students conduct their placements and also with the Chamber of Pharmacists and the Association of Pharmacy owners.

Programs to fit your passions Winterline Global Education offers skills-based gap, semester and summer programs for young adults with an adventurous spirit and an interest in the world around them. You will learn real-world skills to prepare you for college, life, and career while traveling the world and exploring your passions. Produce a documentary film. Launch a business. Learn to scuba dive. Build a tiny house. Practice authentic Thai massage. These are just a few of… [+] the experiences you could have on our programs. Do something new. Learn by doing. Prepare for life. Welcome to Winterline Global Education! We are a unique and innovative global gap, semester and summer program organization, offering high school graduates and young adults the opportunity to step out of the ‘rush to and through college’ and explore what they really want to do with their lives. We believe that high school graduates are much better prepared for college – and for a career – when they take the time to explore and pursue a wide variety of possible interest and skills. What specific skills will students learn on the program? Winterline Global Education introduces students to a wide diversity of skills – but all of them very practical. Students learn life skills such as cooking, caregiving, and personal money management; job skills such as customer service and negotiation; communication skills such as effective public speaking and the making of digital media presentations. These are just a few examples of the core competencies students will learn while on the program. Here is a more detailed listing. How is the Winterline Global Skills Program different from other “gap" programs? Most “gap” or “bridge” year programs offer students the opportunity to volunteer in another country, or to “get to know themselves better” and “make a difference in the world.” As praiseworthy as these efforts are, at Winterline we feel that in order for young adults to actually offer something, they need to have the skills to do so. A gap experience is an extremely valuable time when students can lay a foundation for a successful college experience by gaining a diverse set of skills and being introduced to a wide range of job and career options. Add to this the value of international travel and exposure to global issues and concerns, and you have a program unlike any other. How will this program better prepare young adults for college or university? The Winterline Global Skills Programs offer very practical life and career building skills. They are not “college prep” programs offering to coach in academic subject areas, yet by giving students a chance to explore their interests, gain skills and consider career options, they enter college or university with a much clearer sense of direction and purpose. They know what they want to get out of life and they know how to get there. additional support and guidance in the college application and decision-making process. Are there any prerequisites for joining your program? There are no specific prerequisites to joining a Winterline Global Skills Program besides an inquisitive mind, a “can do” attitude, and a willingness to take risks, make mistakes, and grow through the process. Students are expected to be physically fit and flexible enough to meet the stresses and demands of traveling in the developing world. Do you have an age requirement? Applicants must be between 18 and 22 years of age as of Sept. 1, 2016.
