Student clubs and activities

There is more to obtaining knowledge than merely attending lectures. One of the areas where Masaryk University truly excels is the wide variety of available extracurricular activities. Active involvement in student clubs and associations constitutes a superb way of developing one’s character. In this respect, students at Masaryk University are presented with a truly wide array of choices. Whether you choose to fully engage and become an active member or perhaps choose to take part only in selected events organized by individual students clubs, you will meet new people, gather new information and perhaps even try something you have never tried before! 

This page contains a comprehensive list of student organizations at Masaryk University. Although the list is divided according to individual faculties, most are open to all MU students. If you are interested in joining a club or association, please inquire whether membership is any way limited (see the contact emails). If not, you are on you way to becoming a member!

If you find any errors on the page or in case you would like to comment on the content or happen to know about a student club or association which is not listed here, please contact the administrator at spolky@munie.cz.

The Debate Society of the Students of Masaryk University was established thanks to the merging of student debate clubs at the Faculty of Law and Faculty of Social Studies. Like most similar university clubs, the Debate Society of the Students of Masaryk University uses the so-called British Parliamentary debate style, modelled on rules used by the British House of Commons. Debaters improve their rhetorical skills at various competitions or tournament series, including the University Debating Championship of the Czech and Slovak Republic, an event twice held in Brno at the Faculty of Social Studies – in 2006 and 2009. Members also engage in debates held in English.

Debating is an activity truly anyone may take part in; experienced debaters have confirmed that the skills acquired are indeed universal: “You will learn how think fast and react rapidly, substantiate your arguments and reason with others” says Matej Kurian, one of the society’s founding members.

Debate Society meetings are open to the public – meeting times and places are to be found in the Debate Society discussion forums or on our Facebook page.

The oldest functioning university rover scout crew in the Czech Republic was founded in Brno in the autumn of 1996. The crew aims to provide rovers and other like-minded young people with a common space, offering a programme facilitating their further development as well as providing a space for leisure-time activities, meeting people and helping freshmen make their first steps at university. Moreover, the crew also strives to inspire and pass experience and knowledge on to others. Due to study obligations, many rover scouts are no longer able to devote as much time to their home crews or centres as they would perhaps like to and are thus on the lookout for a new group of friends. They will be pleased to know that there is a university rover scout crew waiting for them, a crew made up of university students from both the Czech Republic and Slovakia: the Brno-based Dýchánek crew. The Dýchánek crew aims to provide rovers and other like-minded young people with a common space, offering a programme facilitating their further development as well as providing a space for leisure-time activities, meeting people and helping freshmen make their first steps at university.

The International Student Club MU (ISC MU) is a non-profit student organization established in the summer of 2003 in cooperation with the Office for International Studies. The ISC was co-founded by MU graduates, who had already taken part in an international exchange programme. In August 2004, ISC Brno became part of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN). Throughout the semester, the ISC organizes a range of events for exchange students; their main aim is to provide internationals with a wide array of leisure-time activities. The club is first and foremost concerned with tutoring: each incoming international is assigned a local student tasked with helping him/her during their first few weeks in Brno. During the semester, international students are invited to take part in country presentations, language courses, field trips, theme parties, sports activities and a multitude of cultural events. The ISC provides Czech students with opportunities to meet their international colleagues, practice their language skills, experience a host of diverse cultural mentalities and acquire new skills and experience. International students are in turn provided with assistance and an introduction to Masaryk University, the Czech Republic and Czech culture. The ISC likewise strives to bring them in touch with other students from around the world.

The Masaryk University Symphony Orchestra was established in October 2005 at the Department of Musicology by Martin Mazánek. The orchestra’s repertoire includes works from the Baroque period to the present day. Its philosophy and objective is to perform less-known pieces, ones which are staged either infrequently or hardly ever played at all. This may well be perceived as a response to the ever-narrowing and nearly uniform repertoire of other musical ensembles. While the orchestra naturally provides its members with opportunities to focus on interpretations of music from various periods, the chance to accompany stage performances broadens the range of experience acquired even further. In the 2007/2008 season, the orchestra successfully accompanied two theatrical productions. The ensemble is young and flexible, capable of staging up to four concerts per academic year. The difficulty of the repertoire is chosen according to the current make-up of the orchestra.

E-mail: honza.motal@gmail.com

Radio R is an innovative online radio channel, fighting for its place in the sun among the ranks of commercial radio stations, the public broadcasting channels of Czech Radio and the never-ending multitude of specific music-oriented internet radio stations. Radio R is attempting to fill a niche in the Czech radio and online broadcasting space. Uninterested in marketing or financial gain, it has little in common with the average Czech radio station. Radio R is a non-commercial radio channel, with no interest in advertising or high listener numbers. Instead of the number of people listening, what matters at Radio R is who they are, what they want and where they are going. These factors in turn determine where Radio R itself is heading – to music clubs, cultural and sports events, among up and coming bands, to school and work, among minority groups, foreign languages and cultures.

Radio R is first and foremost a student radio channel, i.e. the entire project is the work of an enthusiastic team of students supported by Masaryk University. Individual broadcasts – from the music selection to non-traditional programmes which provide space for minority radio genres – are only possible thanks to the involvement of student contributors. Needless to say, a student-run radio station is not limited to student listeners – everyone is welcome to dial in! Whether you are a student or not, employed or unemployed, hermit or party animal, all that matters is that you want to listen to something other than radio stations broadcasting no more than the latest series of hits peppered with the inane remarks of blathering moderators.

Radio R strives to connect with its audience in order to create a communicative and mutually inspiring relationship – after all, this is the only way for listeners to help improve the quality of both individual broadcasts and the entire radio channel!

Over 600 students were enrolled at the Department of English and American Studies in 2004. As these numbers were likely to rise in the upcoming years, a group of students interested in organizing activities for others decided to take action. Following a year of semi-official presence, the club was registered as a civic organization in 2005 as the English Students’ Club (ESCape). Most members are students of the department and it is the department head – Jeffrey A. Vanderziel – who has always been seen as the club’s greatest supporter.

The club organizes a great variety of activities, all associated with the English language or the Anglophone cultural milieu: in addition to publishing ESCape Magazine, and running a thematic film club each semester, the English Students’ Club organizes a number of cultural events and traditional get-togethers: e. g. Halloween Party, Creativity Night, etc. The club also collaborates with several academic and non-academic associations. The events are attended by students of the department as well as by aficionados of anglophone culture. Apart from close collaboration with its home department, ESCape also cooperates with a number of partners and sponsors.

For more information see the list of planned events, event archive, photogallery or discussion forum. If you have any questions please contact us by email.

The Inflow.cz e-zine was established by the students and teachers of the Division of Information and Library Studies of the Faculty of Arts. It is designed as a dynamic professional journal in the field of information and library studies, a medium which will provide more than yet another isolated e-repository of information: a journal with the potential to grow into a truly beneficial medium facilitating the field’s development. In short, Inflow.cz is attempting to function as a live and vibrant scholarly space. Therefore, the online journal actively promotes the development and dissemination of research papers written by young authors (often high-quality work) which – either due to a lack of opportunity or self-confidence – would otherwise never have emerged at all and would thus never have had a chance to reach a wider professional audience.

In addition to articles, Inflow.cz also facilitates publication in the form of blog entries. Furthermore, the platform also includes an experimental online magazine with a bonus audio section, regularly stocked with interviews with prominent figures and experts in the field by the LibRa radio channel. In addition, the INHD multimedia group contributes video coverage of other important events in the field.

The Faculty of Law Amateur Theatre was established in 2005. The first play – “Lotrando, or No More Stealing the Old Way” – was staged at the end of the spring 2006 semester. As it was a first performance, rather than playing for a large audience, the ensemble decided to stage the play in a park adjacent to the faculty building, quite a romantic and (thanks to an impending storm) even dramatic setting. Since then, the Faculty of Law Amateur Theatre has staged plays at other MU faculties and amateur theatrical events.

The Association of Czech Dental Students is a voluntary non-profit organization open to all students of dentistry and stomatology in the Czech Republic. The association was founded in 2000 in order to fill a niche between organizations focusing exclusively on placements in the area of stomatology and the Czech stomatology students themselves. The association’s activities gradually began to grow to include e.g. the organization of domestic student lectures and the establishing of several traditional events: a stomatological summer camp and the annual stomatological student ball (held in the autumn).
In terms of international participation, it must be said that the Association of Czech Dental Students is a member of the International Association of Dental Students, which organizes student exchanges with clinics outside of the Czech Republic; needless to say, this is an important and – for many students – also the most interesting of the association’s activities.

The Medical Students Association is one of the oldest existing student associations in Brno. An application seeking the establishment of the Czechoslovak Medical Society was submitted to the provincial government on 14 November 1919 and the foundation meeting subsequently held on 24 November 1919 in Brno. The society’s activities were discontinued following the closing of Czech universities on 17 November 1939, but it was only actually closed down on 5 February 1944. The society resumed its activities after the war in 1952, then briefly in 1968 and 1969 and finally in 1989. The Medical Students Association organizes a wide range of activities and events, including annual balls (matriculation ball, spring ball), a range of irregular charity events, and SVOČ conferences (university research activity competitions). The association also helps the faculty with entrance examinations and first-year enrolment. Members meet at music sessions or at textbook exchanges.

The association is involved in a number of year-round activities including the following: preparation of both oral and written exam questions, organization of textbook exchanges, ordering and publication of professional literature, operation of the Antonín Trýb Club (located at the Faculty of Medicine at Komenského nám. 2), publication of the Medik On-line magazine and participation in the Dean’s council.

The Faculty of Informatics has been home to a theatre ensemble since 1998. Originally no more than a pastime, the activity has been available as a university-wide elective course entitled Theatre Play since 2006. The spring semester is always dedicated to rehearsing, with the premiere performance of a given play held in the largest lecture hall at the faculty on Dies Academicus Brunensis (mid-May). A second showing generally takes place at the Centre for Experimental Theatre (Goose on a String Theatre). Further showings take place either in the atrium of the Faculty of Social Studies or elsewhere. The final performance is followed by a weekend seminar in Litovany, dedicated to assessing the pros and cons of the entire undertaking.

An audition designed to help choose from among the registered students is held at the beginning of the semester. Those who fail to be cast may nevertheless assist with the performance in other ways, e.g. as score composers and musicians, sound and light technicians, projectionists, scene constructors, prop and costume providers, stage managers, prompters, scene and poster designers, etc. Although the course is open to all MU students, the teacher’s explicit consent (according to the outcome of the audition) is necessary for actual enrolment. Students who have successfully passed the course may participate in subsequent theatrical activity but are no longer entitled to any credits; the Faculty of Informatics Theatre is seen primarily as a practical workshop for developing creativity and teamwork skills.
