A. Legal Requirements

In accordance with the most recently amended version of the Czech Republic’s Higher Education Act (Act 111/1998), in force from January 1, 2007, foreign citizens are permitted to enrol in degree programs offered by universities in the Czech Republic without paying additional tuition or fees, provided they meet the same requirements as applicants who are citizens of the Czech Republic.

If these requirements are met (including, most importantly, successfully passing an entrance examination or examinations), studies are free of charge under the same conditions that apply to Czech students.

B. Types of Study

I. Degree studies

  1. Bachelor’s studies (Bc., equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree; typically three years), and
    Master’s studies in Psychology (Mgr., equivalent to a Master’s degree; typically five years):

    Studies are free of charge for those international students who are admitted under the same conditions as Czech students. The language of tuition is Czech.

    Applicants from outside the European Union do not pay application fees.

    For applications, please see www.is.muni.cz; applications are accepted from November until the end of February for the following academic year.

    The entrance examination consists of:

    • a general aptitude test;
    • a test in the field of study the candidate is applying for (in selected fields of study; enquire at admission@phil(dot)muni(dot)cz for the list).

    At enrolment, proof of official recognition of the secondary school leaving certificate by the relevant Czech authorities must be presented (see detailed information).

  2. Bachelor’s Studies in Czech for Foreigners (Bc., equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree, typically three years).

    Please see http://www.phil.muni.cz/kabcest/en/bachelors-degree-studies.php for detailed information.

  3. Master’s studies (Mgr., equivalent to a Master’s degree, typically two years):

    Studies are free of charge for those international students who are admitted under the same conditions as Czech students. The language of tuition is Czech.

    Applicants from outside the European Union do not pay application fees.

    For applications, please see www.is.muni.cz; applications are accepted from February until the end of April for the following Autumn Semester and from September until the end of November for the following Spring Semester.

    The application must include:

    • a letter of motivation written in Czech by the candidate himself/herself (except for students applying for selected non-Czech philological studies, in which case a motivation letter in the relevant language may be sufficient);
    • in some subjects, it may be required to present a copy of the Bachelor’s thesis (or its equivalent) submitted by the candidate in completion of their Bachelor’s degree requirements or a major essay/paper submitted during the last year of study if the former is not a requirement at the relevant university;
    • a CV written in Czech stating the academic achievements of the candidate.

    In some fields of study, the entrance examination may be held in absentia if the quality of the submitted materials is judged to be outstanding.

    It is therefore recommended that potential applicants contact the Admissions Office of the Faculty at admission@phil(dot)muni(dot)cz well in advance of the application deadline for more detailed information concerning the admissions requirements and information on the entrance examination for the subject they wish to study.

    At enrolment, proof of official recognition of the applicant’s Bachelor’s degree by the relevant Czech authorities must be presented (for detailed information please see http://www.muni.cz/study/recognition?lang=en).

  4. Doctoral studies (Ph.D., typically three years):

    Doctoral studies are free of charge for those international students who are admitted under the same conditions as Czech students. The language of tuition is Czech, but in a majority of the study programs consultations in other languages are possible.

    Applicants from outside the European Union do not pay application fees.

    For applications, please see www.is.muni.cz; applications are accepted from February until the end of April for the following Autumn semester and from September until the end of November for the following Spring semester.

    The application must include also:

    • a project for the doctoral dissertation;
    • a detailed CV stating the academic achievements of the candidate;
    • a list of publications (if any).

    The entrance examination consists of a discussion of the dissertation project and, in some fields the entrance examination can be held in absentia. It should be noted that a dissertation topic outside the scholarly profile of the relevant department will likely be rejected.

    It is therefore advisable to contact the chair of the doctoral committee prior to submitting the application. Among the issues that should be discussed with him/her are the topic of the candidate’s research, the language of tuition, and the language in which the required materials are to be submitted. Please see http://www.muni.cz/phil/study/boards for contact names and addresses.

    At enrolment, proof of official recognition of the applicant’s Master’s degree by the relevant Czech authorities must be presented (for detailed information please see http://www.muni.cz/study/recognition?lang=en).

II. Non-degree studies

  1. Free-mover

    The status of a Free-Mover can be given to a foreign university student for a short period (1 or 2 semesters) of studies at the Faculty of Arts within the degree programme of any department. As tuition at the Faculty is in the Czech language, the student’s knowledge of Czech must be at a sufficient level to follow lectures and seminars. In the Departments of English and American Studies, Romance Languages and Literatures, and German and Scandinavian Studies, the majority of teaching is in the respective language and a knowledge of Czech is thus less necessary (or not necessary at all). The decision about the application is made by the head of the relevant department. The applicant is advised to contact the head of the department or enquire at the International Office of the Faculty of Arts (zahranicni@phil(dot)muni(dot)cz).

    During this short-term stay, a Free-mover can study at the Faculty of Arts under the same conditions as Czech students: there are no tuition or other fees, students are permitted to use the Faculty library, use computer facilities etc. The student may be helped with booking accommodation in student residences.

    Free-mover students may not receive any scholarship or other financial support. Travel costs and health insurance are the responsibility of the student. For the Autumn Semester the application must be sent by 30 May and for the Spring Semester by 30 November.

     Admissions requirements:

    • the applicant must be an enrolled university student or a teacher/researcher;
    • the applicant must receive written permission from the head of the relevant department;
    • contacts must be made at least 6 months prior to the beginning of studies, i.e. by the end of April for the Autumn Semester, by the end of November for the Spring Semester.
