Wide range of Study OptionsWHY
SLOVAKIA

Slovakia provides for ten years of mandatory education. Students enter primary education in their 6th year, second primary education will take them from 10-15 years of age and “high” schools are for those 16 and older until they reach university age. Most Universities in Slovakia are government owned and operated although since 1990 there are more private and religious options. These “Private Spice” forms of higher education remain rare in the country. These are privately financed schools of higher education that are privately operated but approved by the Ministry of Education. Studying in Slovakia offers cultural opportunities that may not be seen in other countries. Still emerging after decades of communist rule, higher education in Slovakia is a study in a society, economics, and an educational system that continues to emerge. Stage 1 “Bachelor” Programmes last 3 to 4 years. A Stage 2 “Masters” programme will last an additional 1 to 3 years. Doctorland programmes can take an additional 3 to 4 years. Slovakia provides for higher education for its students at no charge. Costs for higher education in Slovakia for foreign students can range from 2,000 to 8,000 USD per school year. This is for tuition only. Living expenses would be on top of the estimate. If students apply at a school of higher education, and there happen to be more applicants than speaces available at that particular school, students will need to take and pass, an entrance examination. These examinations can take very different forms at each particular school, depending on the demand for entrance. The level of education in Slovakia is considered quite high when compared to other countries in the world. Many materials however, are a bit outdated and there is not the free independent thinking that is seen on other university campuses across the globe. Because it is still emerging as an economic power, Slovakia offers opportunities not available elsewhere. It is a forward thinking, progressive country that has a very bright future. Students will have to keep in mind that health insurance is mandatory in Slovakia. If you are interested in furthering your education in a country that has emerged from under communist rule and is growing as a democratic republic, you should consider your options in Slovakia.

Health & Medical

Health care system is one of the least developed areas of life in Slovakia. The healing by itself is on a high level, comparable with other EU countries, but the whole system is underfinanced. Health care services provided by public hospitals/ambulances do almost never include any additional care than is strictly needed. Private and non-public health care institutions tend to be more hospitable places. Everyone living & working in Slovakia is obliged to have health insurance. There are several private health insurance companies and one public. Initial examinations are carried out by general practitioners for all adults and children. Everyone is free to choose their own doctor, who will provide primary health care and who can also provide a referral for examination or treatment by a specialist.

HEALTH AND MEDICAL CARE

The healthcare system in Slovakia falls under the competence of the Ministry of Health. In Slovakia there are state and private health care providers. An initial medical examination is provided by state or private general practitioners. Everybody can choose a general practitioner who usually provides basic health care and can refer a patient to an appropriate specialist for further medical examination. There are two types of health insurance: public health insurance (statutory or voluntary) and individual health insurance. Public health insurance covers the following benefits in full or to a partial extent, depending on specific conditions: diagnostics, treatment and preventative care, outpatient and inpatient care including rehabilitation, compulsory vaccination, provision of drugs, medical aid and dietetic food, spa treatment can be provided upon the recommendation of a doctor, where such care is an inevitable component of the treatment procedure.

HEALTH INSURANCE AND COVERAGE

EU/EEA and Swiss nationals are entitled to health care under the erasmus_vyrad_8febr.indd 61 asmus vyrad 8febr indd 61 2/8/11 10:38:01 PM 2/8/11 10:38:01 PMsame conditions as the nationals of the Slovak Republic. Under the Slovak Constitution every individual – a citizen or a foreigner – staying in Slovakia has a right to be provided with the necessary health care. Everyone also has a right to choose their own health care provider.

EUROPEAN HEALTH INSURANCE CARD

For entitlement to medical treatment on the basis of health insurance in another Member State (EU, EEA, Switzerland), an EU/EEA national must present a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to the health care provider. (EHIC shall be issued at your request by a health insurance company to which you pay health insurance premiums.) In such a case, the treatment of an EU/EEA national will be covered by a Slovak health insurance company in the same amount as to a Slovak national, provided the relevant physician has concluded a contract with at least one health insurance company.

History

Slovakia can be easily traveled criss-cross by car in one day.The largest span from east to west is 428.8 km and the shortest 77.6 km. Total area of Slovakia is 49 036 km2.In this relatively small area there are many cultural and historical sites referring to the events that took place in Slovakia during several millennia. Skull cast GanovceSlovak territory was inhabited in prehistoric times. From this period several archaeological artifacts are preserved and placed in the national history museums in many cities of Slovakia. Havranok Celtic settlements to the most valuable preserved artifacts belongs a prehistoric Neanderthal skull cast from the prehistoric site of Ganovce.Prehistoric settlements were excavated in Smolenice, caka, Ockov,Nitriansky Hradok;one of Celtic settlements Havranok was discovered near Liptovska Mara and many others… The territory of Slovakia was the border area of the Roman Empire,limes Romanus of the Roman Empire. Romans led several wars of conquest on the territory of todays Slovakia.

Cities

BANSKA BYSTRICA

Copper town situated in a valley on the river Hron and surrounded by four mountain ranges,Banska Bystrica (85,000 inhabitants) is natural and administrative centre of central Slovakia.Its geographical location makes it one of the most beautiful towns in Slovakia.The riches of the surrounding mountains provided the food for the first settlers of todays Banska Bystrica, who made their living not only by hunting and fishing but also from silver mining. In 1255,the Hungarian King Bela IV granted the town substantial priviliges and attracted German settlers who further developed the mining of precious metals,especially copper,in tandem with its original inhabitants.

BANSKA STIAVNICA

Silver town(inscripted in UNESCO) formerly one of the most important mining towns in Europe, Banska Stiavnica (10,800 inhabitants),stretches over the steep slopes of the hills Glanzenberg, Paradiesberg, Frauenberg, in the Stiavnica Hills, in the southern part of central Slovakia. It lies directly over what were once rich deposits of silver and gold. Wealthy miners built their big style city houses in the surrounding area, houses with through courtyards suitable to an agricultural lifestyle. The former wealth of the once free royal city, with only 10 000 inhabitants, far from mai traffic routes and more or less without any industry, can only be guessed at today. In its heyday Banska Stiavnica had four times more inhabitants and mined up t fifteen thousand kilogramns of silver a year. The most progressive methods were applied in the mines, such a the operation of mining equipment using water energy. Explosives and mechanisation of the underground transportation were used for the first time. Brilliant mine technicians proved their skills here, specially remarkable is the work of Matej Kornel Hell and Samuel Mikovini, who managed to push through revolutionary reforms at the time of the first serious crisis.

Culture

ARCHITECTURE

The art of Slovakia springs from a wide range of traditions,and has regularly incorporated folk and European tendencies in its treatment of chosen themes and motifs.It often exhibits the characteristic poignancy of the changing times while encapsulating a unique take on reality. By way of introduction to Slovak art,we turn to the works of Abin Brunovsky,for containing,in many aspects,some of the features which could conceivably be categorized as Slovak art.Albin Brunovsky (1935-1997) introduced some of the finer examples of Slovak art in the last century.

Jobs

The work permit is granted for a maximum period of 2 years. For seasonal work it is maximum of 6 months–there has to be a break between two jobs of at least 6 months. The work permit is not transferable. This means that it can only be granted for a job with a particular employer and that is also binding as regards the type of work and place of work.If you want to change employers, you must submit a new application. The work permit is granted by the Office of Labour, Social Affairs and Family, with a local competence in the future place of work. The statutory deadline for consideration of application for employment is 30 days. An application for work permit must be submitted to the competent Labour Office. Application form for a work permit can be downloaded here (PDF).An application for work permit is always accompanied with an evidence of level of education. Labour Office does not require a medical certificate. But if it is a profession where such evidence is required by law, ask for it from the future employer. If a foreigner does not enter into employment, or if his employment ends before the expiry of the period specified in the permit, the employer is obliged to report that fact within 7 working days to the competent authority. Work Permit may be extended – even repeatedly – but always for a maximum period of 2 years. Request for extension of employment permit shall be filed no later than 30 days before the expiry. A request for an extension of work permit is employers statement that it will continue to employ the foreigner. Condition for renewal of authorization to work is that the employee will work with the same employer. If a foreigner wishes to engage with another employer, he/she must submit a new application for a work permit.

However, that does not mean that people should not watch their things. Mostly on large public places a wallet or a purse can be stolen. People should be very cautious when dealing with money on such places.
