Prestigious central European university

Masaryk University is one of the most prestigious and respected higher education institutions in Central Europe. With over 35,000 students, it is also the second largest university in the Czech Republic.

Masaryk University, bearing the name of the first Czechoslovak president T. G. Masaryk, was founded in the 2nd largest city of the Czech Republic, Brno, in 1919. In nearly 100 years of its existence, Masaryk University has succeeded in educating over 170,000 graduates, who have excelled in many fields and in many countries around the world. According to regular surveys, 98% of Masaryk University graduates find employment in their field.

In 2010 Masaryk University became the first Czech institution to hold the European Credit Transfer System Label, a certificate issued by the European Commission as proof of the university’s high educational standards and a guarantee of the correct implementation of the credit system in all Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes. Adoption of this system helped support the internationalization efforts, which resulted in an increase in the number of international students, who now make up about 20 % of all students.
