Program Description:

Charles University

Charles3

Founded in 1348 by Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV, for whom it is named, King of the Romans and of Bohemia, Charles University is the oldest and one of the most important universities of central Europe. 

In 1882 the University was divided into two branches: Charles University, which was Czech; and Ferdinand University, which was German.  After the establishment of Czechoslovakia in 1918 this division was maintained, although the Czech University received the greater facilities. The German University was abolished after World War II.

The University currently has faculties of education, law, mathematics and physics, medicine, pharmacy, philosophy, physical training, social sciences, and theology. There are institutes of social and political sciences and economics. Today it has 51,000 students studying in right in the heart of Prague.
 

Did you know...

In 1939, an anti-Nazi student demonstration led to the shooting of medical student, Jan Opletal, whose burial became a second demonstration. Immediately following this event, all Czech universities were closed on 17 November 1939, now marked as International Students' Day, until the end of the War, with many students interned in the concentration camp Sachsenhausen.
