Language Centre, Faculty of Humanities, Tomas Bata University in Zlín



Tomas Bata University in Zlín (TBU) is the youngest Czech public university. It was established in 2001, when two faculties (Faculty of Technology and Faculty of Management and Economics) were separated from Brno University of Technology. Since then, four more faculties have been set up, and the scope of disciplines covered by TBU has been extended with multimedia communication, applied informatics, humanities and health care, and logistics.

From the very beginning, one of the priorities of the University´s top management was to create a multicultural environment, the basics of which is communication in English, the lingua franca of the present. Actually, this is even confirmed in TBU Statute – the communication languages are Czech and English.

In 2013, the language section of the Faculty of Humanities was reorganized into the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, and the Language Centre.
