The principal university buildings are located in two areas, the Türkenschanze and Muthgasse. At Türkenschanze are located the departments which provide teaching and research in the agricultural sciences, forestry, wood technology, and landscape architecture and conservation; whereas the departments concerned with food science, biotechnology, land and water management and civil engineering are based at Muthgasse.
The university has around 6.500 students (of which 17% are international), provides courses at the bachelor, masters and doctoral levels, has 340 permanent teaching staff who are also engaged in research, a broad range of external lecturers (teaching staff total: 1340), and some 400 persons working in services and administration.
In order to fulfil the requirements of the EU's Bologna Agreement with respect to curriculum development, the university has redesigned its course structure, which now comprises 9 Bachelors and 20 Masters Courses, including four international Masters held entirely in English. The change will improve comparability of studies and transparency at the international level.
The Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (CULS) s situated on spacious and modern campus in the north western outskirts of Prague, about 20 minutes from the city centre. In harmony with global trends, our university’s Faculty of Agro biology, Food and Natural Resources, our Institute of Tropics and Subtropics (the only educational and research institute of such kind in the Czech Republic) as well our two new Faculties – Environmental Sciences & Forestry, Wildlife and Wood Sciences respectively – are putting more and more emphasis on educating students in the crucial areas of safety in the food chain and protection of the biosphere, including sustainable land and water management.
Our Faculty of Engineering also educates graduates in ecologically sound waste management, environmentally friendly road vehicle management and alternative energy production (i.e. solar cell technology). Finally, the Faculty of Economics and Management, by far the largest Faculty of the university, offers its graduates more courses focusing on the rural sectors of economy and on modern, up-to-date management of private and corporate as well as state enterprises.

Agricultural education was first offered in Wageningen in 1876, and Wageningen University was founded in 1918. For almost a century it has been an important education and research centre in the plant, animal, environmental, agro-technological and social sciences. In recent decades it has evolved into one of the world’s leading centres in the life sciences and natural resource management. Its research and education are both international in scope and internationally renowned; the University also takes an important role in Dutch society. Wageningen University is part of the Wageningen University and Research Centre. This consortium was established in 1997.
Wageningen University and Research Centre (Wageningen UR) is a unique organisation that combines fundamental, strategic and applied research with innovative education at BSc, MSc and PhD levels. This extensive research base enables us to meet the urgent need for expertise in agriculture, the food industry and natural resource management. Wageningen UR has a dual focus: food and the environment. Our scope encompasses the entire food supply chain, including agribusiness, non-food agricultural production, environmental issues and issues related to land use. Food safety, food quality, functional foods and environment-related aspects of leisure are focus areas that have recently gained interest.
