Charles University was founded in 1348, making it one of the oldest universities in the world. CU strives to become the top quality centre of education and learning, independent knowledge culture and creative activities. It endeavours to play a key role in the scholarly, scientific, cultural, social and economic development of the society and to be the place where lasting values, knowledge and skills are maintained and transmitted to future generations of researchers and leaders in the economy, healthcare, culture, public and state administration.


High quality of all study programs, mainly at master and doctoral levels, stems from systematic focus on students' scientific and research activities. Strong support has been devoted to education of young researches. The doctoral study programmes are cornerstones in this respect.


Another crucial value of the university is its openness. It aims to achieve high standards in international joint research projects and to be open to talented students, outstanding teachers and scholars from home and abroad. The university is dedicated to international co-operation with prestigious educational and research institutions.


Charles University is an accredited public university, and so an autonomous scientific and educational institution. Nowadays it consists of 17 faculties (14 in Prague, 2 in Hradec Kralove and 1 in Plzen), 4 university institutes, 5 other centres for educational, scientific, research, development and other activities, 5 special facilities and the Rectorate.


Charles University covers the full spectrum of fields – medicine, pharmacy, science, humanities and social sciences, theology and sport at bachelor, master and doctoral levels. There are more than 300 accredited degree programmes. CU has 4,600 academic and research staff and 50,500 students, of which approximately 18,000 are studying in bachelor's programmes, 25,000 in master's programmes and 7,500 in doctoral programmes, 8,100 students are from abroad.


Approximately 38 % of CU's income originates from educational funding, roughly 30 % from competitive research grants, and the rest is its own income.
