The twenty-first century is a century of physical activity and natural environment. Our society needs educated young people who would promote a healthy lifestyle and sporting values in schools, work places and sport clubs alike. Regardless of whether it comes to education of future coaches, teachers of physical education or sport scientists, we are dedicated to a profound studying of theory, practical skills and a constant cooperation and teacher-student interaction.
Our multipurpose sports hall, accessible exercise sites, traditional and interactive classrooms, state-of-the-art research lab, e-library and traditional library are a guarantee that each of our students will get acquainted, in an up-to-date, accessible and quality manner, with all the latest educational trends in the field of physical activity and sport.
Our bachelor studies prepare students to be teachers of physical education and sport. Such professionals are sought after by educational institutions and sport clubs where future experts represent an important factor of programming of physical exercise – from that of children to that of professional athletes. Throughout the four years of studying, students are acquainted with theoretical and practical aspects of exercise in courses with a strong kinesiological, biomedical and socio-psychological basis. By collecting 240 ECTS points during the studies, in accordance with EU recommendations for education, students are maximally directed towards practical work, first with the assistance of our teaching staff and then independently. Our educational process is directed primarily towards the acquisition of operational skills such as the management of classes of physical education or that of the training in collective and individual sports. Joint sport activities and taking part in the work of the students’ parliament, are only some of the extracurricular activities that the students fondly remember and that allow for maturing and development during their four-year tenure at TIMS.
