The number of students studying at Masaryk University (MU) has been steadily increasing.

Masaryk University offers excellent conditions for studies to all its students; moreover, it connects education to science and research. It enables further progress for young scholars in top-class and fully equipped workrooms and laboratories. The education for students enrolled in degree programmes held in Czech language (at all levels from Bachelor through Master’s to doctoral degree programmes) is free.
