- Private Institution Type
The University of Finance and Administration (VSFS) was founded by the Bank Academy and Czech Coal Group in 1999 in accordance with the state approval to act as a private institution of higher education.
By virtue of research activities we seek to provide our academic staff with conditions beneficial for their development, to reinforce relations between research and education, and to motivate students for research within their field of study. We pursue original and applicable knowledge in areas which are current and interesting for both experts and wider public. In doing so, we are aware of the fact that research and development are the key device for the reinforcement of competitive strength of the Czech Republic and Europe, and for the progress in general.
International Student Club (ISC) is a group of young VFS students who assist in engaging the international students into common Czech life. The club provides help with arrival, it sets up inter-university partnership program, organizes Orientation week and provides overall assistance during the semester. Various trips, excursions and parties are the main means through which the club introduces the Czech lifestyle and culture. Each international student coming to our school gets his Czech Buddy Student.
University of Finance and Administration does not have own dormitories for students. We can assist in finding the suitable accommodation.
The Library Services Centre of VSFS is a modern facility with high quality automated library system. It contains an extensive collection of books and periodicals and enables both searching and booking books up either directly from the library itself or remotely via the internet. The principles and standards of cataloguing meet international requirements.
VFS is a young and modern institution, therefore its computer facilities are very good. Prague, Estonská street and Vltavská street and the Most branches have computer study rooms with free Internet too. In Kladno it is possible to use the Internet in the library.
VFS does not have at its disposal any contractual medical care providing facility. VFS students are provided medical care on the same basis as any other citizen of the Czech Republic.
