Leopoldo Esposito
Italian Erasmus student and trainee
Olomouc is an amazing city! This YOLOmouc, as usually is named by all the foreign students, is not just a student city (and you will see it is), but it is also a city where you will find everything you need. If someone asked me to describe Olomouc in a word, I would say: comfortable!
Anastasiia Zhemchugova
exchange student from Ukraine
When I started thinking about studying abroad, I looked at a variety of European schools’ rankings and their ratings. Finally, I chose Olomouc as a beautiful students’ town with a rich history. At Palacký University, there’s plenty of study options and the faculty is excellent. Also general conditions, from the Law Faculty’s facilities through to students’ accommodation and other services, are ideal. All this allowed me to fully concentrate on my studies.
Arthur Thévenet
graduate of the Master in International and European Law Programme
Living in Olomouc was the best experience of my life. I spent two years studying there, and I’d definitely come back. Even despite the cold winters. There’s so much to see, so many places to visit, so much knowledge to gain in the Czech Republic. I knew nothing about this country or the surrounding ones, and my curiosity was satisfied. The city of Olomouc is an international place that allowed me to meet many wonderful people from all around the world. I came for the Erasmus programme and decided to extend my studies to finish my master’s here.
Hazhar Jamali
postgraduate student
Back in my homeland, Kurdistan, I dreamt about studying human rights in Europe. It seemed impossible at first, but then I got the opportunity to study at Malmo University in Sweden. After a while, I came across the possibility to visit another country within the Erasmus programme. I chose to go to the Czech Republic, Olomouc, though I knew nothing about it. And I found out that Palacký University was a perfect place for me.
