Tomas Bata University in Zlín

Bachelor’s Programmes


It goes without saying that we encounter daily the cosmetics industry and its products. But what you may not know is that the manufacture of fat-based, detergent, household chemical, and even “car cosmetics” products is rapidly increasing. In short, everything taught here is indispensable, and not only because there are few university degree programmes of this kind in this part of Europe, with ours being the only one in the Czech Republic. The shortage of university departments of this kind provides a number of advantages worth considering, for example our graduates are highly prized in the labor market. You will receive comprehensive education in the natural sciences such as chemistry and mathematics, but we cannot forget instruction in cosmetics, aesthetics, styling, anatomy, economics as well as food culture. Students work daily in their own creative ways with Shea butter, essential oils and their own home-made cosmetics in our new well-equipped Application Center for Cosmetic Products and Biomaterials. This may sound like a fairy tale, but for you it can be a reality.
