 I.IV Attitude of Slovak universities to extra-
               curriclar activities

• Most of universities do not pay attention to these
  activities, students are even told not to mention
  these activities in their application form

• Only at one faculty – Philosophical Faculty of
  Comenius university – journalistic and marketing
  communication – only own literar works
I.V Attitude of Slovak school system to these
• In Slovakia these activities are not a part of curricula,
  students do them in their free time
• Advantages – only when these activities are supported by
• Many problems:
      •   Lack of tolerance from teachers
      •   Lack of finance
      •   They are not able to synchronize their work with school
      •   Uninterest and uncooperation of their school-mates

• Students are not lead to „project thinking“, they are not
  creative and cannot improvise; his can cause problems in
  their future study at univerity
  Our vision how o improve this:
• Teachers have to understand that these activities are not a
  way hoe to play truant, they are many times much more
  exhausting than study itself
• Students need to be motivated as well, projects give them
  useful experience
• Propagation of projects
• Teacher who takes care about the activity is very important
• Support of school
• There should be some activities in every subject, so that
  students would be able to choose which one(s) they want to
  work at
• Education from young age
• Acceptation of achievments of students at universities
