Education For Compatriots

The Centre of Continuing Education at Comenius University in Bratislava also provides education for our foreign nationals – the Slovaks living abroad. Their education is under the auspices of our institution and secured financially by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic.

The content of various educational events is prepared according to the requirements of the foreign nationals and is varied following the innovative approaches of the Slovak educational system. Throughout the year candidates take part in the following programmes: 

  • methodology and education workshops aimed at kindergarten teachers, primary and secondary school teachers who work at Slovak schools abroad
  • educational summer workshops for secondary school students from Slovak school abroad (aged 15-18)
  • educational camps for folklorists – dancers and heads of Slovak folklore groups abroad
  • interest workshops introducing Christmas atmosphere in Slovakia for children aged 11-15

The activities have particular objectives depending on the content of a particular event, but the common aim is to maintain Slovak language and culture alive in Slovaks living abroad because our foreign nationals are considered an integral part of our country.
