There is much more to university life than simply attending class.  Connecting with your peers and with your passions through extra-curricular activities can, together with your academic experience, give you the tools and experiences you will need to thrive as a person during and after your university experience.

UNYP has a number of student clubs and special interest groups that you can become involved with – from the dance club to the Psychology club.  And if you would like to start a new student club we are happy to help you with this! 

Every week at UNYP there are events and activities organized by UNYP’s student clubs and academic departments that welcome your participation.  Please find all Upcoming Events for UNYP students here.

*Please note – all UNYP student clubs and special interest groups are open only to students currently enrolled at UNYP.  Participation in all student clubs and special interest groups are included in the UNYP Student Body Fee – meaning that there is no additional out-of-pocket costs for UNYP students to join.

Welcome to the Communication Studies Society!

The Communication Studies Society is intended to provide a forum for interaction and exploration among the UNYP community interested in communication and media issues. Specifically, the aim is to take issues out of the classroom and seek answers by engaging with the sources!

We want to go places, see things, ask questions, and be permanently out of the box!

What does that mean?

  • Ever wonder how some companies get away with misleading advertising? Attending a meeting at the Council for Radio and TV Broadcasting can provide insight. Feel that journalists are contributing to negative feelings in society with their stories about refugees? Visiting major news organizations like CNN or Reuters and asking journalists could be a solution.
  • Want to work at Disney? Google? Ogilvy? Our Communication Alumni are at the best companies and can tell you what it is like.
  • Want to do some academic research to help you get into a good grad school? Let’s put on a conference! Want to meet communication students from other Czech universities and compare what you study? Why not set up an exchange and share ideas!

Come to our meetings and let’s share ideas about what we are interested in, and how to go about taking our curiosity out of the classroom and into the wider community.

The Debating Society is one of the leading academic clubs at UNYP. Upon its re-establishment in 2015, it has managed to achieve a great success.

You do not only develop your public speaking skills and build up valid arguments, but you also get to learn quite a lot about various issues in the world.

Students debate about the hot topics in the news as well as what is close to their interests. The UNYP Debating Society also closely collaborates with the MUNYP and has been involved in a number of international competitions.

The purpose of the club is to create a cozy and friendly environment for students to communicate and analyze a wide range of literary works (narratives, screenplays, theatrical plays, novels, short stories, poems, comics, manga, folktales) from different perspectives, such as, for example, psychological, literary and historical; and then discuss the material and share various points of view. Our discussions will be held in a place full of candles, blankets, tea, and cookies.

MUNYP has emerged as an initiative for creating a platform for young scholars interested in international relations to discuss global current affairs.

Since Fall 2015, our club has grown considerably in size, with students showing dedication, passion and enthusiasm in meetings and their increasing interest in participating in domestic or international model UN conferences.

In 2018 we grew even further, by holding our first conference at the university. Since then our yearly international high school conference has grown to an outstanding group of 115 students from many different countries. And we look forward to hosting many more successful conference in the future.

The UNYP Psychology Club works as an academic club with the aim to help our students maximize their full potential.  Our club is open to all students independently of their major or
year of study. We believe that with our help, not only will the students’ CVs stand above all other, but they will also be proud representatives of UNYP in many noticeable ways.

Annually, the Psychology Club officers help with the International Student Research Conference (ISRC) organization: an event where students can present their own research. We have been cooperating with the nursery school Pink Crocodile and at psychiatric clinic in Bohnice or the National Institution of Mental Health in Bohnice, among others.

As a psychology student, you can become a member of the Czech (CASP) and European (EFSPA) psychology student associations.
