Short term courses

University of Ostrava offers various exchange opportunities both for domestic and international students as well as for academic and non-academic staff from all around the world.

Students can choose from a wide range of study mobility programmes. Academic or non-academic staff may accentuate teaching, research, or training.

If you are thinking about a mobility programme and would like to spend one or two semesters abroad try one of the two main study exchange options.
