Summer School of Slavonic Studies

The Summer School of Slavonic Studies (the SSSS) consists of study courses provided by several public higher education institutions in the Czech Republic. The courses are held every year during summer months (July, August, September). Their length ranges from 2 to 4 weeks depending on the content chosen by the individual institutions organising the SSSS. These include Charles University in Prague, Masaryk University in Brno, University of West Bohemia in Plzeň, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, Palacký University in Olomouc and the Institute for Language and Preparatory Studies in Poděbrady (an educational centre that is part of Charles University in Prague).

The courses are designed for foreign students, experts (teachers, translators, interpreters) and academics in the field of Bohemistic and Slavic studies.  Due to their broad coverage they are also open for all individuals who are interested in the Czech language, literature, history and culture. As part of its educational sections the SSSS offers Czech language courses at various levels, seminars focusing on Czech literature, culture and history, free-time activities including theatre, music and dance performances, excursions, trips etc.

Participants in the Summer School of Slavonic Studies may be either self-payers who cover all costs associated with the courses themselves, or scholarship holders for whom the course fee, accommodation, meals and access to cultural events held as part of the SSSS are paid by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the CR (the MoEYS). The number of SSSS scholarships for individual countries is determined on the basis of international agreements concluded by the MoEYS and partner countries.

The MoEYS provides information about SSSS scholarship schemes via Diplomatic Missions of the Czech Republic. The scholarships are only awarded to those candidates that have been nominated by the competent bodies of the partner countries under the relevant agreements.
