The city campus of SU provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Opava has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. During the period of study, students can use the university library, where they can do homework and write scientific papers. Student life at SU is filled with intercultural activities, as not only local students study here, but also students from abroad. The exchange of knowledge and experience, networking and new acquaintances — all this is an integral part of studenthood.
