Strategies for Internationalization



One of the key activities of the Faculty of Arts is internationalization. The Faculty of Arts UP places internationalisation among the key objectives of its long-term development vision. Strong international engagement is essential for achieving the Faculty's goals in education, research and knowledge transfer. The Faculty of Arts UP wants to establish and develop strategic partnerships, especially with those universities that match its own educational and research profile. Therefore, it supports the involvement of its academic community in international networks for closer cooperation in teaching as well as in science and research.

The Faculty of Arts cooperates with foreign universities and scientific institutions on the basis of partnership agreements (Erasmus+, CEEPUS, direct cooperation agreements, etc.), within the framework of which hundreds of student and staff mobilities take place every year, organises international scientific and cultural events (e.g. AFO - Academia Film Olomouc, Days of Jewish Culture, etc.) and organises a number of internationally renowned conferences attended by experts from all over the world.
