About

History

Beginning as many universities do as a teacher’s college in 1953 the college grew in scope until September 28, 1991 when the University of Ostrava was founded. The University began with a Faculty of Education, a Faculty of Science and a Faculty of Art. Shortly after a Faculty of Medicine was added and in the early 2000’s the university added a Faculty of Fine Arts and a Faculty of Social Studies.

Education

The University of Ostrava (UO) is a public research university educating nearly 9,000 students in six faculties:

  • Faculty of Science (BIology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, Mathematics, IT)
  • Faculty of Medicine (General Medicine, Nusring, Public Healthcare, Medical Rescue, Therapeutic Fields)
  • Faculty of Arts (History, Languages, Psychology, Philosophy, Social Sciences)
  • Faculty of Social Studies (Social work, Social Policy, Health & Social Care)
  • Faculty of Fine Arts (Visual - Painting & Sculpture, Drawing & Graphics, New Media, Musical - Brass & String Instruments, Solo Singing)
  • Faculty of Education (Pre-school Education, Secondary School Teaching, Special and Social Pedagogy, Human Motion Studies)

Research

The UO must become an equal partner of top-ranking universities and other scientific institutions both in the Czech Republic and abroad. To this end, the university will promote cooperation with other universities and research institutions in the Czech Republic and abroad with aim to transfer experience and to share teaching, research, and development capacities. Although it is important to focus predominantly on the main directions of research in which the UO achieves excellent results at an international level, it is also necessary to promote creative areas which are capable of solving crucial social problems.
