The University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (UCT Prague) works continuously to deepen its international integration. It actively supports international cooperation in the field of education, science, and research, both with European and non-European partners.
UCT Prague considers international cooperation in research and the educational field to be a necessary condition for maintaining and further developing the level of these areas. Student mobilities, both outward and inward, the creation and implementation of joint study programs and the internationalization of other areas of university life create an inspiring environment at UCT Prague, in which new stimuli are created for improving the level and forms and methods of teaching our students, for improving conditions for studies, for the development of the activities of students and academic staff and the expansion of all forms of international cooperation. Similarly, international contacts in the field of science and research are also a source for the development of UCT Prague's science and research activities.
The cornerstones of international activities are inter-institutional cooperation agreements, joint study programs with foreign universities, mobility of students and employees within the Erasmus+ program and other international programs, and international scientific and research projects.
International cooperation of UCT Prague is coordinated by the Department of International Relations in cooperation with the Project Centre and Research and Technology Transfer Office and the relevant vice-rectors.
