The admission procedure is an administrative process set to determine whether or not an applicant shall be admitted to studies in an accredited degree programme. The admission procedure begins with the submission of an application to an MU faculty and proceeds in compliance with the Higher Education Act and Masaryk University Statutes. The admission procedure ends with a decision on admission or denial of admission to studies in the degree programme and field of study listed in the entrance application. Should the applicant withdraw the application or fail to complete the requirements imposed by the admission procedure (in particular the entrance examinations), all fees associated with the admission procedure are considered non-refundable.
The application may be submitted electronically at http://is.muni.cz/prihlaska. You may also be asked to complete a printed application form specific for the certain programme.
Fees associated with admission procedures at all Masaryk University faculties apart from the Faculty of Social Studies’ 290 CZK, the Faculty of Sports Studies’ 550 CZK and the Faculty of Medicine’ 1,300 CZK have been set at 400 CZK. The applicant is required to pay the fee for each submitted application. Payment information for each electronic application including an individually assigned identification code is generated by the Information System following the submission of the online form. The system generate a bill after each individual e-application is filled out. Payment is made through the MU on-line shop; when submitting more than one application the applicant can pay for all the applications with a single payment. It is not necessary to confirm payment by post. Applicants who fail to attend the entrance examinations will not be refunded.
