Faculty of International and European Studies

The new Faculty’s programme portfolio is responding to current changes and challenges in the field of classical international relations and diplomacy. Considering that the values, methods and priorities of international cooperation and diplomacy are undergoing a dramatic change, an international public service career is still a very attractive, however more and more difficult challenge for young talents. The Faculty is going to prepare candidates for these challenges due to its innovative education and research activity, as a first of its kind in the country.

The Faculty is also ready to deliver continuing education courses for acting diplomats as well as for diplomats to be newly recruited for national foreign service or for international and European institutions, e.g. EPSO (European Personnel Selection Office) exam preparations. The Faculty aims to become a strong think tank in the field of public policy and state-building with close ties to Europe, China, the USA and further strategically important partner countries
