The offering of summer schools at UWB is richer than ever before. Organizers have put together previously popular courses as well as several novelties. These include the ArtCamp Kids and the day-camp of the Faculty of Education. The Faculty of Applied Sciences offers a total of seven seven courses.
The International Summer Language School / 11. – 29. 7. 2022
UWB's Institute of Applied Language Studies will hold its 32nd edition of the International Summer Language School from July 11–29.
Applicants can choose from courses of English, French, Italian, German, Russian, Spanish, Chinese as well as Czech for foreigners, both general language courses and courses for special purposes at all levels. The summer school is intended for people of various ages – elementary school children, high school and university students as well as adults from the general public. The length of the courses ranges from one to three weeks, with some held only in the morning and some only in the afternoon.
This year's novelty in the portfolio of courses of the International Summer Language School is a week-long Spanish course for children aged 12–15.

ArtCamp Kids / 8. – 12. 8. 2022
One of this year's novelties is summer art courses for children aged 8–15, organized by the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art called ArtCamp Kids, which will be held on August 8–12.
At ArtCamp Kids, children will have a chance to try one of six art disciplines, develop their talent and acquire new skills, but thanks to cooperation with the Gallery of West Bohemia they will learn about the journey of art works from their conception to the gallery walls. During gallery visits, they will get to conduct a number of creative activities on the gallery premises. They will then apply their new knowledge and skills in presenting their own results at the final exhibition for their families and friends.
Those interested in the summer art courses for children can submit applications by June 30. The application form is available at www.fdu.zcu.cz/artcampkids.

JuniorFEL / 22. – 26. 8. 2022
For the fifteenth time, the JuniorFEL summer school of electrical engineering is being held, intended for middle-schoolers (6th–9th grades) and the corresponding grades at 6- and 8-year grammar schools, i.e., pupils who have at least a fundamental understanding of physics and are primarily interested in electrical engineering and electronics.
The 15th edition of JuniorFEL will traditionally be held at the end of the summer break, from August 22–26. Thematically, it will be a continuation of its earlier editions, with most activities seeing slight modifications. During the week, participants will learn what electricity is, what causes lightning, how they can create and connect an electrical circuit, and how trams and trolleybuses are propelled. Everyone will also try to write a program for a robot, compete in electricity generation and learn how to make an electric paper plane.
Applicants can sign up through the website juniorfel.zcu.cz until May 19. A confirmation that the event is being held and official application forms will be sent out in early June.
Children's FEL summer school Tachov / 22. – 26. 8. 2022

On the premises of the Secondary Technical School in Tachov, on August 22–26 the course participants, led by teachers from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and an industry expert, will learn in an understandable and entertaining way the fundamentals in the field of electrical engineering and electronics – they will learn how smart clothing works, how Lego building sets are used to build complex structures and how they can be programmed, and how the production of not only electrical technology products is managed. They will also learn how to make an electric paper plane and on the last day of the course they will tour the laboratories of UWB's Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
A shorter program made up of selected activities will be held on three days during the fall break at the Secondary Technical School in Klatovy.
The application form for both camps will be available on the faculty's website.
