At the suggestion of the Ministry of Education, the Teiresias Centre organizes a programme of life-long learning that provides the disabled public an opportunity to refresh their knowledge in certain areas of interest while taking into account to their age, social position and disability. The programme includes Classical and modern languages (English, German, Russian, Latin and Greek), mathematics, as well as courses in information technology. While some of these courses are designed for secondary school students applying to universities, a great majority of them are focused on the middle-aged and elderly disabled public. These can be either disabled people interested in learning new information in areas covered by the program or people after a debilitating injury that requires new technological support for them to keep and function in their previous jobs. Thanks to cooperation with the Faculty of Information Science and the Institute for Information Technologies of Masaryk University, the choice of study programmes since the autumn of 2002 has been expanded to include courses offered by audio-conferencing. Selected universities and Centres (at the present only the Teiresias Centre at MU in Brno and the Teresa Centre at CVUT in Prague) provide an internet connection for live broadcasting of some courses, which allows the students' on-line participation in the courses. This removes the need to commute, which is, especially in case of visually disabled students, often very complicated and time consuming.
Studying in the form of special courses, however, is not enough to cover all aspects of knowledge and this is particularly true when the question of extramural educational activities such as excursions or visiting exhibitions, is raised. Normally these are the students' individual responsibilities. Many university students accompanied by the Centre's representatives have visited the exhibition of the models of important public buildings in the collection of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Brno and the exhibitions "From the Gothic to the Renaissance" (2000), and "Possible Messages" (2001) at the Moravian Gallery.
