Study-related fees do not constitute tuition fees and are thus not allocated to all students at the beginning of their studies. Students in Bachelor’s or Master’s degree programmes are only required to pay study-related fees in case they fulfil certain legally stipulated conditions.
Legal Provisions Providing for the Process of Study-related Fees Allocation
- Act No. 111/1998 Coll., on Higher Education Institutions, subsections 58 and 68 article 4
- Masaryk University Statutes part 3, particularly Appendix No. 6 to Masaryk University Statutes
In accordance with the above mentioned legal provisions, the following fee types are allocated at Masaryk University:
- Studies Prolongation Fee – section 58, subsection 3 of the Higher Education Act
A studies prolongation fee in accordance with section 58, subsection 3 of the Act is allocated to Bachelor’s or Master’s degree students who exceed the standard length of studies by more than one year. In assessing the duration of a student’s prolonged studies, all previous study periods terminated otherwise than in due form are added to the duration of prolonged studies; in case such a student was simultaneously enrolled in several degree programmes, the resulting period is added only once. An interruption in studies due to parental leave in accordance with section 21, subsection 1, letter f) of the Act does not count towards the duration of prolonged studies which constitutes the basis for fee allocation.
- Foreign Language Degree Programme Fee – section 58, subsection 4 of the Higher Education Act
Fees for studies in a degree programme conducted in a foreign language are allocated to students enrolled in such a degree programme (Bachelor’s, Master’s or doctoral).

Study-Related Fee Allocation at Masaryk University (in accordance with section 58, subsections 3 and 4 of the Higher Education Act)
Study-related fees are allocated for a six-month period by the faculty dean to students who have met the legally stipulated conditions. A written decision must be issued within 30 days following the establishment of a student's obligation to pay a fee. The fee allocation decision is delivered in writing by registered mail to a student's contact address listed in the Masaryk University Information System. Unless an appeal for a review of the decision is placed within a period of 30 days, the dean's resolution comes into force. The fee is due within 90 days following the delivery of the decision regarding its allocation.
Study-Related Fee Allocation Decision Review
In accordance with section 68, subsection 4 of the Higher Education Act, a student is entitled to request a review of the fee allocation decision within a period of 30 days from its delivery. Failure to submit a request for review within the indicated period will only be taken into consideration in exceptional circumstances. The dean may change or cancel an issued decision in justified cases (in case the decision is found to contradict university regulations). In case no such contradiction is established, the request for review is passed on to the Rector of Masaryk University. In case the request for review is found to comply with the relevant regulations, the Rector may (in accordance with section 58, subsection 7) decide to waive or reduce the allocated fee. When considering a student's request for a fee waiver or reduction, the following criteria are taken into account: study results, social situation, medical condition, participation in international exchange programmes and university representation.
The request for review must be submitted to the relevant faculty Office for Studies. All claims asserted by the student which cannot be verified in the Information System must be duly substantiated. A decision resolving the request for review comes into force on the day of delivery; no further legal remedies are permitted. Once the decision comes into force, a payment schedule may be requested by the student via the Information System. The university is under no legal obligation to provide such services.
