Students of full-time studies at MU are issued the International Student Identity Card (ISIC).
Part-time studies students are issued a smart card that fully replaces all functions of the ISIC within MU.
In order to obtain an ISIC/student identity card, you need to:
- Enroll in studies.
- Obtain an official photograph. Identity card photographs are taken at enrolment but you may arrange an alternate time with the Institute of Computer Science.
- Order your identity card via the MU Shopping Center and pay the associated fee (180 CZK).
- As soon as your ISIC card is ready to be picked up in the International Relations Office (in about 2-5 business days), you will receive a message.
In case your card is lost, stolen, or damaged, please report this in the International Relations Office. Your card will be locked in order to prevent abuse and a new one will be issued.

ISIC Usage outside MU
ISIC holders are eligible for a number of student discounts outside of the university, including discounts in restaurants, cafés, bakeries, outdoor sports shops, pharmacies, optical shops, museums, galleries, bookshops, copy centers, selected driving schools, transportation providers such as Student Agency, etc. The ISIC is valid in over 100 countries worldwide and may thus be used for discounts around the globe.
A full list of student discounts is available via the ISIC website.
An ISIC card issued by MU is only valid outside of the university until 31 December of the following year. In order to continue enjoying its benefits, it is necessary to acquire a revalidation sticker. The sticker may be ordered via the IS MU Shopping Centre. It is valid for 16 months, i.e. from 1 September to 31 December of the following year.
