Each year, about 30 bachelor students and 30 master students successfuly complete their studies at the Centre. Since 1994, more 60 PhD students finished and successfully defended their theses. Quality of the education is acknowledged by number of student awards at various levels including dean's and rector's awards; national competitions of master students (Barbora Jedličková 2008); best student presentations at national and international conferences including e.g. SETAC Europe (best poster; Jiří Kohoutek in 2008), DIOXIN (best student presentations, Petr Kukučka in 2010) or EuCheMS mobility and carreer development scholarships (best student presentations; Romana Kurková and Petr Kukučka in 2010, Jitka Bečanová and Jan Kuta in 2011).

Foreign student

Students use quality lecture, seminary and computer rooms and laboratories for practical exercises. Student research projects (theses) form an important part of the studies and correspond to major research projects and reflect other applied activities of the Centre.

International students and professors working in the Centre (from UK, Germany, Austria, Slovakia and others) as well as existing international cooperations provide a stimulating study environment and offer a range of student mobility opportunities including European programmes such as ERASMUS and others.

Christmas Echoes and Happy New Year 2015

A traditional RECETOX Christmas Party took place on 11 December 2014. It was organized in a coordinated manner with other neighbouring departments along the northern Bohunice Campus corridor and provided a very pleasant opportunity to meet other colleagues in less formal circumstances.
We would like to acknowledge all RECETOX organizers for bringing joy to our children, students and colleagues. We sang carols with one-off RECETOX orchestra and choir, tasted home-made Christmas cookies, decorated a tree, introduced traditional Czech and Moravian habits to our international colleagues, prepared novel Christmas and New Year cards, as well as organized a traditional Christmas Charity. We appreciate all donators and we would like to announce that the collected 5600 CZK were given to a family in need. They conveyed their gratitude to everyone participating in the charity fundraising and we are glad we could be of help.
