NOVEMBER 2018: NEW seminar, for incoming international employees

23. 11. 2018

Moving to another country for work is an exciting chapter of your life but it might be also a challenging experience.

So the Department of International Affairs decided to launch a new Introductory Seminar for incoming international employees to help them to smoothly transition to the University of Pardubice and become more familiar with life in Pardubice and the Czech Republic. .

The very first session was held on the 21st November 2018!

4 colleagues from India, Russia, South Africa and Germany, who have been at the UPa for a couple of days, weeks or months were provided with some basic information about what being an employee at the University of Pardubice entails. Some of the important information included:

  • Permits or visas (registration, extension, etc.)
  • Working at the UPa- rights and duties (sick leave, maternity leave, taxes, resignation, vouchers, holidays, marriage….)
  • Health insurance and medical care

Based on the success of the first session – and the clear need for it – the Department of International Affairs plan to organize this event 2 or 3 times per year.
