OFFER OF COURSES AT OTHER DEPARTMENTS

Students are obliged to take at least 50 % of the ECTS credits at the department, to which they have been assigned to (in our case Department of Geography – KGG).

However students are allowed to register in courses taught also at other departments, namely at the Department of Development and Environmental Studies (MRS), Department of Geoinformatics (KGI), Department of Geology (KGE) and also to register in one or two courses outside the Faculty of Science, e.g. Faculty of Arts (Department of Political Science). Participation in these courses is determined by the agreement between student and lecturer at the beginning of semester. Teachers are not obliged to accept all demands.

HERE you can find the list of courses taught in English at all four "geo-related" departments.

In case you need more information about study opportunities at the Faculty of Science, please contact Faculty coordinator for foreign affairs Mrs. Dana Gronychová (dana.gronychova@upol.cz) or look at this website.

Main contact person for foreign affairs at the Department of Geography is dr. Petr Šimáček (petr.simacek@upol.cz).

Very useful information regarding study and life in Olomouc can be found in the Student Guide UPOL App as well as at the website of International Relations Office (IRO) of Palacký University Olomouc.

We look forward to welcoming you in Olomouc!
