Besides preparation of next generations of teachers and other education experts, we are also active in various fields of research. Out faculty offers all degrees ranging from the bachelor (Bc.) up to the Assistant Professor (doc.).

Our history dates back to 1954 when the Higher Teacher Training College was set up – to become the Pedagogical Institute in 1959, and the Pedagogical Faculty in Ústí nad Labem (1964). Through Act No. 314/1991 Coll., the University of Jan Evangelista Purkyně in Ústí nad Labem was set up and solemnly inaugurated on 28 September 1991, priding itself with three faculties and an Institute. Those were the Faculty of Education, Faculty of Social and Economic Studies, Faculty of the Environment, and the Institute of Slavonic & Germanic Studies.

We currently have around 4100 students and other education participants (3000 regular students and 1100 participants in Center of Lifelong Learning) and 150 employees.
