University accreditation does not apply to courses from this institution
We have adopted the name of the renowned North-Bohemian native of Libochovice (1787-1869), the one of the founders of sciences such as biology, embryology, histology, modern pharmacology, comparative anatomy, and anthropology. Besides, Purkyně ranks among the world´s most outstanding physiologists.
Just as well-rounded a personality Purkyně in his time was, we too, in these days, offer a wide variety of study programmes and specialisations (55 programmes and 173 specialisations) focusing on the most varied areas of human activities. Not only because of that are we - with our assorted offer – attractive for the current young people.
We are a state-of-the-art scientific, pedagogic, and cultural & educational center of the Ústí nad Labem region.
We educate a number of students exceeding 10 000 and employ a staff of about 900.
We proudly take credit for the municipality of Ústí nad Labem, and contribute in a significant way to the development of the region.
