Charles University belongs among the oldest and largest universities in the world. It was founded in 1348 by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV as the first studium generale north of the Alps and east of Paris. Seven centuries later Charles University consists of 17 faculties and aware of its mission, it continues to nurture academic cooperation and plays an active role in a broad spectrum of European and global programmes. With almost 50 000 students, Charles University is one of the world’s top universities, a fact that has been confirmed repeatedly by the international university rankings.
