Academic Career Centre

Since its first days, the Academic Career Centre (founded in 2003) has been run by volunteering students. The general aim of the ACC is to support and counsel students seeking a suitable employment.

The Academic Career Centre compiles a database of students and graduates, administers a website with lists of the best students and graduates, takes parts in various programmes, seminars and workshops. It organises free-of-charge workshops intended for students and graduates, which concern psychology and preparation of application documents. The workshops also provide important information about the current situation on the labour market.
