Study conditions of persons with visual impairment at universities
Šafránková, Markéta ; Květoňová, Lea (advisor) ; Šumníková, Pavlína (referee)
89 Abstract This examined diploma thesis focuses on the sphere of tertiary education and its aim was especially to examine the study conditions of university students with visual impairment. The basis was to study professional literature and other sources to build a theoretical framework. It was essential to create an image of the student with visual impairment that the visual handicap and thereunder constraints were covered and it was also necessary to describe the young adulthood specifics. An important step was to characterize the environment wherein these student move. To do this I used legislative documents and provisions and tried to delineate any difficulties and implemented solutions. I also introduced research which previously examined this field and provided relevant information, too. This was the foundation for the practical part of this paper. It contained the survey wherein I addressed a few visually impaired students who conveyed their findings regarding their study conditions. I carried out semi-structural interviews with them and analyzed the obtained data with the help of the open coding method. I summarized the resulted findings in the final section and tried to suggest further steps. The first chapter dealt with the definition of the visually impaired individual. At first, visual...

Koziolová, Jana ; Vlk, Aleš (advisor) ; Basl, Josef (referee)
The main aim of this thesis is to describe the issue of diversification of the Tertiary Education in the Czech Republic and to highlight the difference of the tertiary education of the Czech Republic and the tertiary education in developed countries. Therefore this thesis has sought to compare the system of tertiary education of the Czech Republic with the systems of tertiary education of developed European countries, those whose rates in the competitiveness report were very high, Denmark and the Netherlands. This work is based on the characteristics of systems of tertiary education of all three countries which were analysed to learn the extent to which the systems of their tertiary education are diversified. The goal of this thesis is to answer the main research question which is: To which extend is the diversification of tertiary education of the Czech Republic comparable with the diversification of the tertiary education of developed countries, those that rate in the competitiveness reports high. The results of the comparison of the case studies of the countries show that the system of the tertiary education of the Czech Republic is not sufficiently diversified, due to the lack of the professional study programs, which currently represent in the European Western countries an important sector of...
Construction of student identity of Vietnamese college students with parents with different educational attainment
Brázdová, Kateřina ; Machovcová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Pánková, Barbora (referee)
This bachelor thesis discusses the topic of university students of Vietnamese origin in regard to their parents' educational level. The aim of this thesis is to determine whether there are some differences between students, whose parents have achieved university degree, and students, whose parents do not have university degree. The potential differences are examined in relation to their perceptions of themselves as students, their decisions about university studies, the values ascribed to higher education and the processes that shape their identity. The research is also taking to account the influence of cultural context associated with family's migration experience, straddling between two cultures and relationship between children and parents. Theoretical chapters describe theories of educational transmission and the effects of social origin on education attainment. They also present the issue of first- generation university students and characterize Vietnamese minority in the Czech Republic. Empirical chapters describe qualitative research which used semi-structured interviews as the main method. The semi-structured interviews were conducted with six respondents. Half of the respondents were university students who had at least one parent with university degree, the other half were university...
Duration of university studies in the Czech Republic and the effect of fees for excessive study duration
Fliegl, Tomáš ; Veselý, Arnošt (advisor) ; Vlk, Aleš (referee)
Topic of the thesis is the duration of studies at universities in the Czech Republic and the effect of fees for excessive study duration on the duration of studies. It focuses on undergraduate programs at public universities, for which the fees are applicable. Author exploits data from the national student register and data on the amount of fees from most Czech universities to build a regression model. Awareness of students on the fees policy was determined by questionnaire for participants of a widely used admission test (National Comparative Test Scio). It has been found, that at the average, 41% of students extended nominal length of study program before completing it, with highest share observed in humanities. About 10% of students extended the nominal length of study by more than one year. Fees apply to one-fifth of the students, half of them because their unsuccessful studies had been attributed to their actual length of study. The results show that time to degree is only insignificantly related to the potential amount of the fee; only in the case of students of one public university we have found mild relationship and CZK 1,000 fee increase should shorten time to degree by 6 days. Influence on the length of unsuccessful studies is more pronounced and represents 10 to 90 days per CZK 1,000. Low effect...
Construction of student identity of college students whose parents do not have university degree
Škanderová, Taťána ; Machovcová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Bittnerová, Dana (referee)
This bachelor thesis investigates how student identity of college students whose parents do not have university degree is constructed. Aim is to find out how they reflect their past and current experiences in order to understand the meanings they attribute to subjectively important decisions and breakthroughs in the context of university studies, and to capture processes that play a crucial role in constructing their identity focusing the influence of family support and interest. In the theoretical part, I introduced the concept of social class in psychology and the basic theories of social reproduction and mobility within education. Furthermore, the specifics of the Czech education system are characterized, with a particular focus on tertiary education, values gained by family and school, and first-generation university students. Last but not least, I deal with identity, its definition from the point of view of mainstream and social constructivist psychology and its formation in the period of emerging adulthood and during the transition to university. In the empirical part, semi-structured interviews were utilized to collect data. The obtained data is processed qualitatively within interpretative framework using thematic analysis. The studied sample consists of six first-generation university...
