Charles University Prague

Univerzita Karlova v Praze (Charles University Prague)  was founded in 1348 by the Roman-German Emperor Charles IV, making it the oldest university in the Czech Republic and one of the oldest universities in Europe, along with those in Paris, Bologna and Naples. The language of instruction was Latin until the middle of the 18th century, then German. It was not until the mid-19th century that Czech was added as a second language of instruction, and in 1882 the university was divided into a German and a Czech university.

With 53,000 students and 7,500 employees, Charles University is today the largest university in the Czech Republic. It is ranked 138th in the Tilburg Ranking (as of 08.2019).
