Study abroad in Comenius!

University od Comenius in Bratislava (Slovak: Univerzita Komenského v Bratislave) is the largest university in Slovakia, with most of its faculties located in Bratislava. It offers higher education for both slovakian and foreign young people who come to study abroad in Comenius. It was founded in 1919, shortly after the creation of Czechoslovakia. It is named after Jan Amos Comenius, a 17th century Czech teacher and philosopher.

In 2006, University of Comenius had more than 30 thousand students and 2000 faculty members. As are most universities in Slovakia, it is financed mostly by the government. Although there have been plans to establish tuition fees for university students in Slovakia for years, another attempt failed to gain sufficient support in parliament in May 2005.

The University of Comenius was established in 1919 with help from the old University of Prague. It replaced a Hungarian university located in Bratislava since 1914. Many professors of the newly established university, including its first rector, Prof. MUDr. Kristian Hynek, were Czechs, since Slovakia at that time did not have enough educated Slovak speakers who could serve as faculty members. In spite of personnel, financial, and space difficulties, the university developed research and teaching programs. The Faculty of Medicine opened in 1919 and soon became a good place to study medicine abroad in Comenius. It was quickly followed by the Faculties of Law and Philosophy in 1921. The Faculty of Philosophy, besides offering programs in the humanities and social science, also educated much-needed teachers for Slovakia's high schools.

In 1937, a new university building for the Faculties of Law and Philosophy was opened in the centre of Bratislava. The building includes the Aula (hall) used for graduation ceremonies and other formal functions.

During World War II, Slovakia became nominally a republic, but was actually under the sway of Nazi Germany. The government reduced academic freedoms at the university, and the Czech professors were forced out. The university was renamed Slovak University in 1939, though the original name, University of Comenius, was reinstated in 1954. The Faculty of Science opened in 1940 and the Roman Catholic Faculty of Theology was established in 1941. Shortly after the war, in 1948, the communists took power in Czechoslovakia, enforced the ideology of Marxism-Leninism at Czechoslovak universities, and cancelled academic freedoms. The Roman Catholic Faculty of Theology was taken under direct control of the Ministry of Education.

However, the university of Comenius continued to grow, and new faculties were established (mostly by splitting the existing faculties):
Faculty of Education in 1946,
Faculty of Pharmacy in 1952,
Faculty of Physical Education and Sports in 1960,
Faculty of Medicine in Martin in 1969, and
Faculty of Mathematics and Physics in 1980.

After the anti-Communist Velvet revolution in 1989, the university created a democratic self-government, and mandatory courses on Marxist ideology were abolished and the studies abroad in Comenius were encouraged. The Roman Catholic Faculty of Theology and the Evangelical Theological Faculty joined the university.

The transformation of Slovakia into a market economy created a need for professionals in management and financial sciences. As a result, the university established the Faculty of Management 1991 and the Faculty of Social and Economic Sciences in 2002. In 2000, the European credit transfer system was implemented to improve student mobility and to improve quality of study abroad in Comenius.
