Abstract

The present paper focuses on study results of the students of distance-studies centres carried by the Faculty of Economics and Management at the Czech University of Life Science Prague. The centres are situated in areas with generally low concentration of universities and therefore, the possibility of university education is relatively small. We observed the students who entered the study field Public Administration and Regional Development in the academic year 2009/10 during the first three semesters of their study. We selected five different courses studied at the centres and we subjected them to statistical analyses. Our obtained findings show differences in burdensomeness among the selected courses, among students of different age and gender and, last but not least, among individual centres. This information can be useful both for students and studies centre management.
