Are you finishing high school and deciding on where to study next?
Are you already working, but feel that with further qualification, your work would be better paid and more interesting?
We offer BA, MA and PHD studies and courses for teachers.
- Applied physics
- Physics for education
MA studies (postgraduate)
- Applied physics
- Teaching of physics for lower and upper secondary school
- Engineering physics
Further education for teachers
These programmes are for teachers who want to extend their qualification by another subject, or want to teach their subjects at a different school level (primary school, lower secondary school, upper secondary school).
- Physics for lower secondary schools
- Physics for upper secondary schools
We will try to answer some of the most frequently asked questions here.
I am interested in science, but won't it be too difficult for me?
Science is not a privilege of the likes of Einstein. Physics, like all fields, has people who write the history, but also a number of motivated people who help them. The number of scientists is increasing, they hold various positions, have various specializations. The point is to use to the fullest the abilities that every one of you has.
Is physics not too theoretical, would it not be better to study engineering?
Some people prefer examining general problems, others like to see their labor used in practice. The upside of studying here is that we are closely connected too all of the other university departments, which often solve very practical problems. Elective subjects are often facilitated by experts from other departments, or from the industry. It is possible to writre your BA or MA thesis under a different department and your supervisor is sure to appreciate your extensive scientific knowledge.
Studying physics is great, but will I be able to make a living after graduating?
Of course. Society aims to use more and more modern technology, and science is the key. Also the skills learned during solving physical problems or creating physical models translate well into other field, from economy to engineering.
What exactly can I do after graduating?
Connecting physics and engineering practice gives students a unique opportunity to get into leadership positions in companies or laboratories, teaching and scientific work at universities and research facilities. In case of finishing the studies with a BA degree, the graduates should be able to use their knowledge in testing, metrology, research facilities, in industrial companies or even in the government.
Is science suitable for women?
Undoubtedly! Studies have shown that women have the same aptitude for studying science as men. In fact, their often different point of view can be of great use. Yes, there are still less women and men in science. However, that means the scientific potential of many women is wasted.
Science is not talked about much in the society, is anyone even interested?
Most definitely! Less media coverage is caused by the fact that these issues require more space than a reporter can encompass in his given media, and are too complicated for the reader or listener to comprehend in such a small time frame. However, potential employers show great interest, which is reflected by good financial situation of our graduates.
Is it not too demanding, will I still have time for my hobbies?
Studying applied physics is certainly not easy and you would find many easier field to choose from. However no studies are without effort. if you organize your studies well, you will have plenty of time left for your hobbies. And if you feel like you have too much time on your hands, You can participate in student academic work.
Why study science, e. g. physics, in Liberec?
The upside of the Technical University is that all the departments are in close contact. This means you can combine a wide variety of fields while studying or doing research. You can study courses from philosophy, economics or engineering - whatever you are interested in and consider important.
Lower number of students contributes to a more individual approach. You are free and encouraged to do research, often in cooperation with our foreign partners. Foreign internship offers already outnumber the amount of students.
The dormitories in Liberec are readily available and thanks to the 2009 World ski championship repaired and equipped with new furniture. Living and transportation costs are much lower here than in other university cities.
Liberec is also a place of sports. First league football, hockey, basketball, and volleyball are played here. There are ideal conditions for winter sports, on of the reasons for Liberec hosting the 2009 World ski championship. You can get to the ski slopes and cross country ski trails by tram.
Liberec has an excellent swimming pool with a gym open daily until 10pm. The university owns one of the best stadiums, two gyms, a first-class indoor climbing wall, a fitness center and a sauna. The city is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The Giant mountains and the Czech Paradise are a bike ride away.
You do not have to worry about lack of culture either. There are three theatres, four cinemas, two art galleries and a range of interesting cultural (as well as less cultural and completely uncultural) clubs and societies.
