From applying to enrolling...

General Information

The doctoral programme admission procedure takes place twice a year: applicants submit their applications from February to April (to begin their studies in the Autumn semester) and from September to November (to begin their studies in the Spring semester).
The standard length of all study programmes is 4 years. Doctoral studies graduates are awarded the title “doctor of philosophy” (Ph.D.). Applicants submit their applications to each programme separately (one application per one programme).
The numbers of applicants admitted to individual programmes are usually approximate and can be changed according to current free capacities of departments at the time of the admission procedure period. The number of admitted applicants can exceed the planned number of admissions; vice versa, the number of planned admissions needs not to be met in the final stage of the entrance exam procedure.


Admission Requirements

Based on the results of the entrance exam, graduates of the same or related programme of studies can be admitted to the doctoral programme. Materials required for the admission procedure must be submitted in the printed form to this address: Oddělení pro přijímací řízení FF MU (Arna Nováka 1, 602 00 Brno); currently, the deadline for applications (to begin studies in the 2016 Autumn semester) is 10 May 2016 and must include the following:

  • CV,
  • dissertation project,
  • a certified copy of the applicant's diploma including its recognition by Czech authorities if the diploma was issued in another country and there is no international contract stipulating otherwise (if the applicant is a graduate of a Master's degree programme; Masaryk University graduates submit a non-certified copy),
  • list of publications (optional),
  • other materials (see further requirements listed in the document "Informace, podmínky a obory v přijímacím řízení" here (in Czech only)).


Admission Procedure Fees

The administrative fee for the admission procedure is 400 CZK. The applicant orders the payment of the fee according to instructions in the electronic application form. The administrative fee and other materials (both requested and unsolicited) will not be returned to the applicant.

Application Deadline

It is possible to submit applications and pay the fee in the following time periods:

  • 1 September – 30 November (to begin studies in Spring semester),
  • 1 February – 30 April (to begin studies in Autumn semester).

Entrance Exam

The doctoral programme entrance exam is oral and usually consists of the following: 

  • level of preparedness for academic studies,
  • notion of the main direction of the applicant's research in the given field,
  • dissertation project,
  • language skills.

Interviews with applicants beginning their studies in the 2016 Autumn semester will take place in June 2016.

Doors Open Days

Faculty of Arts has no Doors Open Days specifically for applicants to doctoral study programmes, yet it is possible to visit the faculty at Doors Open Days designed for applicants to Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes.

How to Apply

Applications are submitted electronically at the address http://is.muni.cz/prihlaska/?lang=en. It is necessary to fill out all compulsory fields in the application and to enter the subject field of the applicant's master's studies in the “supplementary text of the applicant” (faculty, study programme, and field) together with the dissertation topic.


Between Submission and Enrolment

Upon submitting the application and paying the administrative fee, applicants will be informed about the date of the interview. Applicants will receive a printed invitation to the interview by post according to the admission procedure schedule. The result of the interview will be entered into the applicant's electronic application and applicants will also be informed about the admission/non-admission in a printed notification together with enrolment instructions (available here).
