Study at USB
After the University of South Bohemia gained the highest possible rating from the Research, Development and Innovation Council of the Government of the Czech Republic (R&D&I Council) in April of this year as the only university established after 1989, another great news has arrived. On Wednesday, June 24, the University also received the best ranking from the prestigious and globally respected ranking of higher education institutions the Times Higher Education (THE) in the context of “young” HEI from the Czech Republic.
Employees and students of the Department of Medical Biology (DMB) and the Institute of Chemistry (ICH) of the Faculty of Science of the USB took part in resolving the critical situation of insufficient capacities for testing for the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and they have tested 3455 samples in the BSL2 laboratories of the DMB since March 28.
The University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice was visited on Wednesday 17. 6. 2020 by the Director of the Department for Science and Technology of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Prague, Mr. Hong-Wei Yen, Ph.D.
On Monday 25. 5. 2020 was held a meeting between the Rector of USB and the Vice-Rector for International Relations of USB with the representatives of the Czech – Middle Asian Chamber of Commerce (ČSOK).
On the first April day, despite the current epidemic, the newly elected Rector of the University of South Bohemia - professor Bohumil Jiroušek - assumed office.
Due to extraordinary measures adopted by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic in connection with the spread of the coronavirus in the territory of the Czech Republic and, furthermore, in connection with the announcement of the government of the Czech Republic concerning the declaration of the state of emergency, after a debate with the Rector of the USB, I am issuing this decision on prices of accommodation in May of this year:
On March 24, 2020, the laboratories of the Department of Medical Biology at the Faculty of Science of the USB have been granted permission from the National Institute of Public Health to test samples of patients for the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the disease known as COVID-19.
In connection with the current guidelines issued by the National Security Council CZ, I define the following measures:
A monograph written in English and a book devoted to the work and legacy of Tomáš Akvinský – two new titles of the USB Publishing House.
