Doctoral degree programmes are offered in both Czech and English languages at most faculties and in most fields of study all over Masaryk University. We recommend you to consult the list of doctoral degree programmes and contact the specific faculties which run them. Usually, application to Ph.D. programmes includes choosing and consulting a research topic for your doctoral dissertation project, therefore we recommend to contact potential supervisors with relevant academic interests. The admission offices will provide you with the initial information.
As the English-taught programmes are not subsidised by the Czech Ministry of Education, they rely on tuition fees covered by students.

What needs to be done in case of being admitted to a degree programme?
To find out requirements for your stay in the Czech Republic
Students from countries outside the European Union need to apply for a visa to study in the Czech Republic. The visa application should be sent to the Czech embassy or consulate in the student’s home country once the student has received their letter of acceptance from the institute that he/she will attend. You also need to contact Health Insurance Company and obtain a health insurance for the period of stay in the Czech Republic.
All information can be found via the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.
Students from the EU (plus Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland) are exempt from student visa requirements. However, students from these countries do need to apply for a temporary residence permit at the Immigration Office if they want to stay in the Czech Republic for longer than three months.
The admission offices at the faculties will send you information and assist you in these procedures.
