Who We Are
We are a modern higher educational institution with a wide range of study programmes and large scholarly output. We have 20,395 students enrolled in our accredited programmes, more than 2,300 academics and researchers, and nearly 1,400 non-academic staff working for us.
We are one of the top Czech universities according to international rankings, where UP also fares well when compared with universities globally.
We are a university comprised of eight faculties, higher education institute CATRIN, eight university facilities, and the Rector’s Office as the administration centre. The university structure is complemented by state-of-the-art scientific centres (Institute of Molecular and Translational Medicine, Regional Centre of Advanced Technologies and Materials, Centre of the Region Haná for Biotechnology and Agricultural Research) and research centres.
We are bringing life back to public spaces (the Park It! Initiative, the Majáles Student Festivities), delivering science and education to the general public (University of the Third Age, Fort Science), working with the non-profit sector, have our own endowment fund, are proud of our alumni, and wish to play an important social role (Citizens’ University).
We are Palacký University, your potential employer.
