Cooperation with secondary schools
The Faculty places important emphasis on cooperation with secondary schools. Since we want to be a truly elite institution, moreover one that cultivates academic disciplines unique in the context of the Czech Republic, we would like to address and admit extraordinarily talented school-leavers. That is why the Faculty has been engaging in more intensive cooperation with approximately a hundred secondary schools, communicating through modern electronic media and organising a range of activities designed to attract the best. It is our belief that the road to top science and education starts in secondary school, if not earlier, and the role of the Faculty is to nurture this road from its very start.
Cooperation with universities and research centres
International cooperation is part and parcel of university research and education. All mobility programmes administered by Charles University enable teachers and students to join exchange programmes and other international initiatives. It is the cornerstone of our active research and teaching cooperation policy to make sure that our departments and scholars maintain the existing, and develop new relations with universities and academic institutions abroad. The Faculty offers foreign exchange programmes for scholars, teachers and students based on agreements reached between the Faculty and universities abroad. The Faculty of Arts holds a leading position among CU faculties in the LLP/Erasmus Programme, a principal opportunity for student mobility exchange, with the CUFA reaching an increasing number of bilateral agreements each year.
The Faculty cooperates with a large number of academic centres in the Czech Republic. It has been playing a long-term role in the Association of Deans of Faculties of Art in the Czech Republic, which is an important platform for the mutual exchange of information and a place where common views on matters of principle are formulated. Cooperation takes place also in the field of science and research where another important partner is the Academy of Sciences of CR and its institutes. The Faculty is also partner to other than humanities-oriented institutions to whom it is linked by collaboration in common fields of study, like for example the Faculty of Science of Charles University.
Cooperation with the business community
The Faculty portfolio relating to cooperation with the private sphere is relatively narrow. It involves mainly disciplines directly connected to professional performance, like for example information science, psychology and personnel management. The main spheres for graduate careers are the Third Sector, i.e. government organisations, culture and education, and the not-for-profit sector.
