The University of Ostrava is striving to ensure a comparable European level of quality in its degree programs, as evidenced by the fact that it holds the DS Label and ECTS Label certificates.
It regularly extends the range of study programs and subjects in a foreign language (mainly in English). The Faculty of Social Studies also carries out a joint study program, in cooperation with the Fachhochschlue Campus Wien and the University of Trnava, in the field of management of social work services in the follow-up Master's degree program. The program of Physiotherapy in the Italian language is realized at a foreign branch in Switzerland, where about 180 self-paying students study.
The aim of the University of Ostrava is to create an international academic environment and to increase the number of mobility students and academic staff and to promote cooperation with other universities and research institutes in the Czech Republic and abroad, in order to exchange experience and share education, research and development capacities.
Internationalization merges with all the priorities of the Strategic Plan OU 2016-2020 as one of the basic tools for improving the quality of all university activities.
