English Language and Literature

Section A: Eligibility Criteria

This fee-paying degree programme is open to:

1. Those holding a Bachelor's degree in a field related to English philology (literature, cultural studies and/or linguistics) or teaching English (as either a first or second language) from an institution of higher education in the Czech Republic or abroad.

2. Those holding Bachelor's degrees in other disciplines within the humanities, liberal arts or social sciences from colleges or universities located in English-speaking countries (e.g. the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and the English-speaking countries of the Caribbean, Africa and Asia) may also be considered for admission on an individual basis. Those in this category should contact the Department of English and American Studies prior to applying.

 

Section B: Terms of Admission

1. Submission of an electronic application in the Masaryk University Information System.

2. Submission of two letters of recommendation, one of which must be from a teacher.

3. Submission of a Statement of Purpose (750 words maximum) in English, explaining why the applicant wishes to study in this degree programme accredited in English and why the applicant wishes to study in this Department.

4. Submission of a copy of the applicant's Bachelor's thesis or its equivalent (Honour's Thesis, Senior Thesis, etc.).

5. Demonstrate English-language skills at the C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Language by submitting one of the following certificates (not more than one year old at the time of the submission of the application):

  • IELTS (minimum acceptable score: 7.5)
  • Certificate of Cambridge Proficiency in English with a mark of A or B
  • Graduates of colleges or universities located in English-speaking countries (e.g. the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and the English-speaking countries of the Caribbean, Africa and Asia) need not submit test scores.

6. Admission to study English Language and Literature will be offered to those applicants selected by the Department's Entrance Exam Committee, based on a complex evaluation of the applicant's language skills, recommendations and motivation.

 

In addition, all students with foreign degrees (except as set out below) must submit their Bachelor's degree for official recognition by the Czech Republic's Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports. As this process ("nostrification") can take several months, it is recommended that applicants submit this paperwork concurrently with their application. Applicants without this official recognition are not permitted to enrol at the University. Detailed instructions can be found here: http://www.muni.cz/study/recognition/general

  • Holders of degrees from universities located in countries with which the Czech Republic has a treaty on the bilateral recognition of academic degrees and titles (at the present time: Germany, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia), please see: http://www.muni.cz/study/recognition/countries_with_bilateral_agreements?lang=en
  • Holders of degrees from universities located in Slovakia should follow the instructions set out here: http://www.muni.cz/study/recognition/education_from_slovak_republic

 

Transferring to the degree programme accredited in the Czech-language

Students enrolled in the degree programme accredited in English wishing to transfer to the degree programme accredited in Czech (i.e. from the fee-paying to the no-fee programme) must successfully pass the entrance exam process set out for that degree programme. These students must also demonstrate a knowledge of Czech at the C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
