The 1960s was perhaps the most brilliant period in the history of both Czech cinema and FAMU. The students and professors offered the most progressive and challenging ideas to the overall social discourse of the time. After the occupation of Czechoslovakia in August 1968, several FAMU professors and graduates had to leave the country. Some of them contributed to the development of film art and industry in the world and played significant roles in the development of film education. After the fall of communism in Europe, FAMU maintained its status as the national film school but at the same time opened its gates for international students from all over the World.FAMU is a founding member of CILECT (World association of film schools), of the European League of Institutes of Arts (ELIA), and of the European Association of Cinema and Television Schools GEECT.

STUDIES AT FAMU = FILMMAKING + WRITING + ACADEMIC DISCIPLINESFAMU International has various programs in English, from one to six-week summer workshops to one semester programs organized abroad to one-year programs to full master degree programs. Generally speaking, each program consists of a varying proportion of practical filmmaking with assistance, writing skills connected to practical processes and academic disciplines related to the audiovisual field with their reflections and methodologies. Each program has different conditions for admission. Some shorter programs (usually the one semester or summer workshop programs) are based on contracts with particular universities or academic agencies. These programs are run by FAMU regarding curricular matters, but admissions are administered by the particular university or academic agency (CIEE or CET) with whom FAMU is contracted.

Prague Film School

Czech Republic Prague September 2018

Prague Film School is one of Europe’s leading schools providing practical training in the core disciplines of filmmaking. The school's accelerated programs, its international faculty, and world-class facilities draw students from all over the globe bent on converting a long-held passion for film into a lifetime profession WHY STUDY AT PRAGUE FILM SCHOOL? Praxis-oriented: One would be hard-pressed to find a program that provides as much practical exposure to filmmaking. M… [+] ore than 400 films are shot per year at Prague Film School and students in the year program participate in as many as 30 productions. The operating principle of Prague Film School is training, and we believe as with instruments or with languages, the only way to develop fluency is to practice. High-end facilities: Prague Film School is well-stocked with the latest cutting-edge equipment used in professional film productions throughout the world. Students have immediate access to the school's fleet of cameras, including RED, Arri, Canon and Sony high definition cameras, in addition to high-end lighting, sound, and grip. Intensive: The type of student who chooses Prague Film School comes to us because he or she has essentially only one year in terms of time or financial resources to cross from where he or she is in life at the moment into the world of professional filmmaking. We then have only one year to bring these students to a level of competence where they can operate professionally. As such the program is highly squeezed. Faculty-student relations: Core faculty is brought in from around the world. While all teachers are accomplished professional filmmakers, their primary purpose in Prague is to teach students at Prague Film School. The dynamics are then what you find at exclusive boarding schools and small colleges in the U.S., where the teachers are highly devoted to their students and accessible. Faculty also embody the school’s ideology of integrating European art-house with American independent cinemas. The diversity of student body: In a student body of 60 students, 25-30 countries are represented. Nearly every other student is from a different part of the world, but there’s a sub-cultural glue binding them together. Students live and breathe film together. Liberalism: Most students at our school have completed undergraduate studies and see their time at film school as a cherished chance to wed their deep interests with a vocation. As such, the administration treats all students as responsible adults and trusts students to take full responsibility for their studies. The school does not interfere with students’ artistic choices. Prague: Prague is one of those very rare cities that manages to combine cosmopolitanism with intimacy and beauty. Its magic is apparent to just about anyone fortunate enough to spend some time here. Prague is a major European film center with one of the continent’s largest and oldest film studios. The city is regarded as the world's most beautiful capitals and productions come from all over the globe to capitalize on the city's beauty and film resources. For a film student, Prague is a dream city, providing a setting for virtually any type of film, a charismatic metropolitan buzz for inspiration and affordability still unique in the developed world.

The Mission of the Faculty of Finance and Accounting is to provide University education in accredited study programmes taught on the highest level possible, develop scientific research and to carry out habilitation procedures and procedures for the appointment of professors in accredited disciplines. The Faculty of Finance and Accounting was created 1st July 1991 as a result of organizational changes at the University of Economics, Prague (VSE) during the political changes… [+] after the 1989 revolution. It was built on the basis o the tradition of the faculties’ departments of finance, accounting and didactics of economic studies, which is (together with their degree courses), the epicenter of the University since its creation in 1953 and continues to be throughout its more than sixty years of existence. The newly created Faculty of Finance and Accounting was from its beginning supported by a strong and stable team of scientific and educational professionals who, with the combination of traditional approach towards economic education and exactly planned study programs, have successfully gained a competitive advantage which is kept to this date. This stable team was cooperating with the Faculty since its creation, forming a group of eminent professionals from both the academic field and external field such as companies and government institutions, who significantly participated upon the post-revolution changes within the Czech society. Thanks to this unusual constellation, the Faculty became one of the top of the economic faculties in the Czech Republic and it is being successful in keeping this prestigious position today. The Faculty of finance and accounting offers all three levels (bachelors, master and doctoral) of studies in Czech language. Since 2015 the Faculty is proud to be able to offer Masters and Doctoral level of studies fully in English language. The two year Master programme in Finance and Accounting (MIFA) and the three year Doctoral study in either Finance or Accounting and Corporate Financial Management. This fact is yet another proof of the Faculty’s modern approach and attempt in offering its students something more, valuable for their career. The high quality of the Faculty is reflected in the continuous top rankings of surveys and polls which are put together by professionals, journalists and by students. Another part of the proven quality of the faculty is in the alumni students - graduates. Their successfully growing careers in banks, auditor and consulting companies, production and business firms, including government institutions and as well within the nonprofit sector are speaking for itself. When evaluating the annual statistics of the alumni employment success rate, our faculty is in the leading positions with almost a zero unemployment rate of its graduates. Quality is as well an important aspect, when it comes to the academic staff of the faculty considering their academic performances, scientific - research publishing activities, which are both supported and maintained by the faculty. The Faculty in this matter holds the privilege in organizing specialized conferences and publishing scientific journals and cooperating with several external professionals who are incorporated into the activities mentioned above as well as being in the positions of the academic council of the faculty. Thanks to these the faculty is capable in keeping up with the newest information from real-life experience and connecting them to the study and research attributes which support the high academic level connecting academia and day-to-day experience. International activities of the Faculty are not only offering a master and doctoral programme in English but also student have the unique opportunity to study abroad thanks to programmes such as Erasmus or experience an internship abroad. Achievements of the Faculty which were gained through its existence are binding and will require a considerable amount of effort to be sustained and further develop. I firmly believe that the faculty is sufficiently equipped and motivated to achieve this goal and that it will continue to be considered as a recognized academic institution whose professional opinions are respected and whose graduates will fully apply their quality in practice. doc.

The Faculty is also pioneering the use of simulation-based teaching methods using multimedia, practical simulation tools, and experimental teaching facilities. Students have the opportunity to spend part of their studies abroad – both in Europe (we have links with over 40 partner institutions as part of the Erasmus+ programme) and beyond. The Faculty works closely alongside the Ostrava University Hospital (which includes a number of highly specialized departments), two other large hospitals in Ostrava, and a range of other medical and healthcare institutions across the region, both in the public and private sectors. The Faculty has a strong presence in the medical research community. Its specialist teams include the Obesitology Centre (developing treatments for obesity), the Institute of Emergency Medicine (developing responses to potential bioterrorist incidents and military conflicts, developing medical and surgical methods for man-made and natural disasters), the Hematooncology Clinic (conducting genomic research to identify genetic changes which occur in patients with hemato-oncological disorders and prevent effective treatment), and the Centre for Epidemiological Research (focusing on epidemiology in infectious and non-infectious diseases and the natural and working environment). The Faculty’s key research priorities reflect issues which are of primary importance to public health on both the national and regional levels.

Special features, research, interesting projects: There are three chief areas of academic research at Faculty of Humanities: philosophy, anthropology, and the applied social sciences. Research in philosophy is focused on two areas: Phenomenology and Semiotics. Associated fields of research include the mutual relations of action, creativity, and rhetoric in areas such as ethics or politics, but also in the philosophy of art and aesthetics. The field of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences includes the sociology of knowledge, of institutions and of organisations, gender studies, studies of civil society and the civil sector, studies of management and supervision in care-providing organisations.
