    About the University


    The Silesian University is the youngest university in the Czech Republic. It was founded in 1991. The university is situated in Opava, the historical centre of the Czech part of Silesia, a region in the northeast of the Czech Republic.

    The Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the Mathematical Institute are located in Opava. Opava is a city with rich cultural history and a significant cultural background. It is the place where the oldest and the third-biggest museum in the Czech Republic – the Silesian Regional Museum – can be found. Other cultural establishments are the Silesian Theatre with the Opera House, the Regional Archives (the third-biggest archives in the Czech Republic) and a number of libraries.

    The School of Business Administration is located in Karvina (approximately 50 km away from Opava). For the last few decades, the town has gone through an extensive reconstruction. These changes are related to the development of mining, which influences the nature of the entire Karvina region. The School is very modern and it offers pleasant background for students.

    In the year 2001, the Silesian University in Opava has a student body of nearly 3,500 students.

    The Silesian University develops very dynamically. It is a university with a wide range of study programmes and significant contacts with universities in Europe and overseas.

    The university organizes conferences at an international level and displays both extensive and intensive publication activities. The quality and the extent of study programmes can be well compared with other Czech universities. The University is the seat of the editorial office of Differential Geometry and its Applications – a renown international journal – published by Elsevier Science Publishers / North Holland.
