The Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava (AFAD) (Slovak: Vysoká škola výtvarných umení v Bratislave, abbr. VŠVU) is an academy in Bratislava, Slovakia. AFAD was founded in 1949 at the dawn of totalitarian regime in the former Czechoslovak Socialist Republic. For next forty years, the institution was under the pressure of political doctrine promoting so called socialist realism in arts, as well as suffering the political purges affecting badly the whole society. In spite of troubled historical development and atmosphere of repression, at AFAD there were few spheres of so-called “positive deviation”. The resistance to the orthodoxy of socialist realism was made possible thanks to the intellectual and artistic background of some of the professors and their personal approach to their students. After years of totalitarianism, in 1989 the AFAD was one of the few higher education institutions in the country where the whole teaching staff was re-selected in an open competition. Since then many changes in educational profile and academic life of students and faculty had been taking place. As a result, today the AFAD is a present—day oriented school offering study in three levels (bachelor, master and doctoral) and five specific fields: Fine Arts, Design, Architecture, Restoration, and Theory and History of Arts.

Departments: Architecture; Photography and New Media; Printmaking and Other Media; Intermedia and Multimedia; Painting and Other Media; Design; Restoration; Sculpture, Object, Installation; Theory and History of Art; Textiles; Applied Art; Visual Communication; Division of Drawing

Standard study, BA and MA and Art D./PhD. level

The University of Žilina was established on October 1, 1953 as the College of Railways in Prague. In 1959 the institution changed its name to the University of Transport and moved to Žilina. As a result of the increasing role of communications within the curriculum and research orientation of the University, the name was amended to the University of Transport and Communications in 1980.

Following wide-ranging changes at the beginning of the nineties, it was renamed again to the University of Žilina pursuant to the law passed by the Slovak National Council on November 20, 1996. This change reflected the University’s educational restructuring, which is based on effective theoretical and professional preparation, communications skills, use of information telecommunication technologies, marketing, economics and law emphasizing the future demands of customers.

The University of Žilina is the only university located in the northwest region of the Slovak Republic. In terms of professional profile, the University is unique in Slovakia as it has a long tradition of providing education in the fields of transport and communications. Furthermore, during the last period of development the University became an educational institution with a broad profile in many areas of science, technology, economics, management, and recently, educational and natural sciences.

The University enjoys a very close cooperation with transport, telecommunication and industrial companies as well as public and private institutions across the region and country. Further, the University contributes to the technological and operational development of transport and telecommunication systems, networks and services as the main conditions for the future economic, and the social development of the Slovak Republic.

The University of Žilina provides education at all three levels of higher education both in full-time and part-time forms (Bachelor's degree, Engineer/Master's degree and Doctoral degree). Finally, all of the University’s faculties provide a supplementary course of pedagogical studies for students and graduates. Over the last 57 years more than 52 000 students have graduated from the University; 1662 of them have been awarded the Ph.D. degree.

The University has established contacts with many universities abroad. Professors and research workers at the University participate in international educational and research projects. These include the European Union projects TEMPUS, COPERNICUS, COST, LLP/ERASMUS, Leonardo da Vinci, than CEEPUS, National Scholarship Programme, DAAD. The academic staffs are actively involved in cooperations within the EU´s 6 th and 7 th Framework programmes.

The University envisages an establishment and gradual development of new courses and curricula reflecting advances in science and technology. Development of lifelong learning and continuing education programmes will become one of the main tasks in the near future. Continuing and distance education at the University will focus on the demands and requirements of Slovak industry and the public and social sectors of services.

International Fighter Pilots Academy

The International Fighter Pilots Academy (IFPA) was originally established in the Slovak Republic (Central Europe) in early 1993 as an official training unit (55 Squadron under the 5th Training Wing)permitting civilian visitors to participate in flying activities on operational military aircraft including jet fighters (L-39C, MIG-21UM, MIG-29UB) and helicopters (Mil Mi-2, Mil Mi-17, Mil Mi-24) at the various operational air bases of the Slovakian Air Force (SAF).

The IFPA founder was an Australian Pilot - Thomas Orsos, who was promoted to Commander of IFPA and awarded the honorary rank of Lt. Col. for services rendered to the Slovak Republic's Air Force in operating "accident-free" operations of the IFPA unit for over 5 years and processing some 400+ visitor pilots.

At the end of 1997, the IFPA ceased operational status with the SAF, due to the SAF's ongoing operational demands for joint military exercise flying with NATO, therefore an alternative Air Force collaboration was sought.

In 1998, the IFPA was successfully transferred to become a newly incorporated official unit with the Ukrainian Air Force (UKRAF), and its new "home" became the Kirovskoye Air Base in the Crimea (South Ukraine by the Black Sea).

In 1999, authority was granted to the IFPA from the Ukrainian Air Force High Command to establish a new special training unit for international military personnel. This unit was designated the IFPA FIGHTER WEAPONS SCHOOL (IFWS). The IFPA-FWS quickly established itself as the No.1 venue for international military pilots desiring to fly with the state-of-the-art modern Russian-built Jet Fighters such as the MIG-29UB and SU-27UB all with fully operational radar and weapons (Air-to-air missile (AAM), Air-to-surface missile (ASM) ordnance.

By 2005 the IFPA had flown over 850 persons from all over the world and continues in operation to this day and has remained "accident-free". The IFPA's motto is "Fly the Dream" and it appears that many people have achieved just that.
