University of Prešov in Prešov

Prešov is the third largest town in Slovakia and it is the centre of the Šariš region. It is a town with attractive history, charming scenery and historical jewels of architecture. Thanks to a high level of education and culture, it has earned such names as Little Leipzig or Athens upon Torysa. As the only state university in the region, the University of Prešov in eastern Slovakia is of great importance to local life, yet its influence extends a lot further than that. Though officially established in 1997, roots of the University of Prešov can be traced back to a school that was founded in the first half of the 15th century and went on to become an important local educational institution.
At present, the University has 10,000 full- and part-time students, and comprises eight faculties that focus on social, natural and theological sciences, sport, arts, business management and health care. Among its priorities is research undertaken at its excellent purpose‑built research centres. They include the Centre for Lingual‑Cultural and Translational Interpretation, the Centre for Socio‑historical and Cultural‑historical Research, and the Centre for Human and Animal Ecology.
Besides the research oriented laboratories that are equipped with leading technologies, the faculties and University centres also have other facilities at their disposal that are primarily focused on educational process. Eight faculties of the University provide a huge variety of study fields and specialisations in teaching and non‑teaching courses at all three levels of higher education (bachelor, master and doctoral). Educational activities at the University are carried out based on creative research and artistic activity of university teachers who are involved in the field of social sciences, natural sciences, theological sciences, arts, physical education and sports, management and health care.
