About Czech University of Life Sciences

Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (CULS), also known as the Czech University of Agriculture in Prague, was established in 1906. The history of the University started with the establishment of the Agricultural Department at the Czech Technical University (CVST) in 1906 by the Decree of Emperor Franz Joseph. For more than a century CULS has been the centre of higher education in agricultural and forestry sciences in the central European region of Bohemia.

The university lays emphasis on training future leaders who will be mindful of our planet´s natural resources, as well as related socio-economic and environmental issues. CULS educates students in crucial areas of safety in the food chain and protection of the biosphere, including sustainable land and water management.

In 2005 CULS became a Member in the Euro League for Life Sciences (ELLS).
