Student organizations operating at our university
IAESTE is a student organization that provides student internships abroad and facilitates contacts between students and their future employers.
In local centers, in the frame of various projects, students learn skills such as team work, scheduling and presentation skills that will facilitate access to the first employment.
EGEE is one of the largest student organizations in Europe. All projects and activities are based on the voluntary work of its members.
The organization is promoting the idea of European integration and mutual understanding by organising international and local student events.
It organizes aid for international students during their internship and stay at the University of West Bohemia (the buddy system), organizes trips, cultural events, fairs and is the main organizer of the student ball.
AIESEC has been operating in the Faculty of Economics at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen since 2003. The main activity is the implementation of foreign work placements for both the Czech students going on placements around the world and the students coming to the Czech Republic.
In the Czech Republic AIESEC organizes various trainings, lectures and workshops. Members can participate in national or multinational conferences and thus gain greater chances in labor market.
