International relations

The Faculty has developed strong relationships with a number of prestigious international organizations, universities and non-profit organizations. Through these, the mobility of students and academic workers and the cooperation on scientific projects has been actively supported for many years.

In Europe, the Faculty maintains its most intensive cooperation with partners in Slovakia, Finland, Belgium, Austria, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Spain, Slovenia and the Baltics. The most significant partners of the faculty outside Europe include universities and non-profit organizations in Thailand, Nepal, and USA. International Exchange programs provide mobility for students and academic workers and play a key role in the internationalization process of the faculty.

The range of destinations requires the use of a variety of financial support instruments. Within Europe, the Faculty supports exchanges most significantly from European programs such as Erasmus+, CEEPUS, DAAD and AKTION. Exchanges outside the European Union are predominantly supported by the Institutional Plan of the University of South Bohemia – financed by the Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth of the Czech Republic.

The Faculty is also involved in projects of a number of prestigious international organizations and university networks that cooperate on common goals, while mutually respecting the identity and diversity of partner institutions. These activities include membership in the European Association of Schools of Social Work (EASSW), in SocNet98 – a European Network of Universities/Schools of Social Work, in the European Transcultural Nursing Association (ETNA), the European Association of Centres of Medical Ethics (EACME), as well as the Multidisciplinary European Low-Dose Initiative (MELODI), a platform focused on radiation research and protection, and a related platform, SHARE – Social Sciences and Humanities in Radiation Research.
