In the summer semester of the academic year 2011/2012, IEC established and operated the Centre for Further Education of International Students. The first remarkable activity of this Centre was an intensive course of Czech language for Vietnamese students. The main aim of the course was to develop the language knowledge of Czech for foreigners, and language study in terms of the specialised terminology necessary for study in the Bachelor programmes at CULS Prague. The specific parts of the study were lessons focused on introducing vocational subjects such as animal husbandry, plant production, engineering, economics and environmental studies.
Since the academic year 2014/2015 IEC has ensured simultaneously three of these courses, the capacity of which is normally full.
The students are interested mainly in subsequent studies at the Faculty of Economics and Management, Faculty of Tropical Agrisciences and Faculty of Engineering.
The courses are completed with a written and oral final examination, on the basis of which students receive certificates on successful completion of the course.
