We left our scientists out in the cold

We established a research station in Antarctica

Founded on James Ross Island by polar explorer Pavel Prošek, the university station bears the name of Gregor Johann Mendel, the father of modern genetics. Thanks to research conducted at the station, the Czech Republic has been a voting member of the Antarctic Treaty System since 2007.

We bridge gaps and connect countries

Thanks to the Erasmus programme alone, over 1,000 of our students discover the world every year.

We are an internationally recognized research institution and the best loved university in the Czech Republic among incoming foreign students. We actively participate in a wide range of study projects in Europe and beyond. While our students travel to the four corners of the world, incoming internationals from all over the world explore the city of Brno.

Centre for international cooperation

We live in a digital age

Study materials and courses are available online.

Entrance applications, course registration, scheduling – all study-related paperwork has been replaced with electronic solutions. We are also dedicated to developing e-learning. Our students have access to 70,000 educational videos and over 5,000 multimedia materials.

We share the knowledge

Each year we publish 400 books and issue over 50 journals and student magazines. Masaryk University Press is among the most active publishers of scholarly and scientific literature in the Czech Republic. Publishing activities are overseen by the editorial board, which monitors developments in all key academic disciplines.

We believe in equal opportunities

Everyone deserves the opportunity to learn

Hundreds of students with sensory impairments or limited mobility are enrolled at MU. We operate a Braille publishing house as well as a specialized centre named Teiresiás, which has been dedicated to helping special needs students for years. The university also provides bursaries for students in difficult social conditions.

Support Centre for Students with Special Needs

We believe in transparency

We have even developed software capable of detecting plagiarism

All Bachelor’s and Master’s theses are available online thanks to a university-wide set of study regulations. Scheduling courses is easy thanks to the absence of barriers between individual faculties.

We are making our city a better place

We run a cinema, a theatre and a student radio station

We resurrected the disused Scala Cinema and reopened it for the benefit of the general public. Rádio R no longer broadcasts only for students. University libraries and the Mendel Museum are open to the public. In addition to focusing on education and research, we are also dedicated to improving people's lives.
