Graduates of our school

Adam Klavík


I got my bachelor’s degree in VŠERS in České Budějovice and moved to VŠO in Prague for my master’s degree. And I don’t regret it – VŠO is much more similar to a public school and the quality of teacher is 100% better. For example Ms. Palatková, who taught me, is a big name in the tourist industry.

Jan Šrámek


On VŠO, I have learnt to be independent and gained practice in my field. In all places where we went within the scope of student competitions, we have been winning awards. Already during my studies I became a part of the organisational structure of few projects in tourism. I can’t wait till I start working full-time.

Petra Benešová


I have graduated from VŠO and now I even teach there. Much has changed over the years – the school keeps going forward, is now more focused on practice, the subjects are more technical and more narrowly focused. Even though the competition on the market is huge, VŠO getting on very well and I can recommend it easily.

Jana Valentová


Graduated from: VOŠ - acting, Academy of Physical Education and Sport PALESTRA, University College of Business. Motto: Do not be an oaf in life and a liar on the stage! „Which title do you use then? „None.“ Laugh. „After all, it is more important what I have in my head.“

Kristína Jíšová


VŠO is one of the few schools in the Czech Republic, which really focuses on practice. During the studies, we have for example: worked on projects, whose results were inspected by the National Heritage Institution. A lot of the lectures were also led by external lectors, so we were learning things as they were applied in real life.

Simona Kremerová


Simona works as a Program Coordinator in the company Smaller Earth. In year 2009 she took part in a work stay in New York. She spent three and a half year in England and worked for an Australian travel agency. Work never bothered Simona and that is why, when she got the opportunity to go to America as kitchen help, she did hesitate. She gathered experience, found new friends and travelled through some parts of the United States with the money she earned. That is how job opportunities in England or Spain opened up to her.

Jakub Velička


He studied aviation theory on the Oxford Aviation Academy. He went through practical training in Czech Republic and Poland. He is a holder of CPL/ME/IR licences.

Jaroslava has always known what she wanted to reach in life and tries to reach that, no matter how impossible that might seem to someone. You will not find words such as “not possible”, “I don’t have a chance” or “I will not try” in her vocabulary.
