Frequently asked questions

How can I contact you?

Please contact us at if you have a general question. If you have a question for a specific faculty, please refer to the list of contacts.

My application looks different than the one my friend has!

Applications may differ based on the field and program you wish to study. Your application might require something more than that of your friends.

I lost the password for my application, what should I do?

Due to security reasons we are unable to provide you with a new password via e-mail or phone. However, you can request to reset your password. It will be sent to the email that you provided during the registration. If you’ve been provided with a student identification number, you can access your application at any time using your student ID.

If you have lost the number of your application, we can send it to you via the e-mail you have entered. Otherwise the number of your application will be a part of the invitation letter you should receive 3 weeks prior to the entrance exam.

I would like to change the field of study on my application

It is not possible to change the field of study on your application. To change the field of your study, you have to create a new application. However, this change is possible only before the application deadline.

Generally, you have to pay a fee for every application that you enter. Should you just need to change the field of your study, you can contact the admission office of the faculty and ask for the payment transfer to your new application.

Do I have to fill in my e-mail and phone number?

We highly advise you to fill in these details even though they are not mandatory. This way the admission office can contact you in case any problems arise.

I want to apply to a specific study field, but I only see the general programmes.

Not all programmes have more specialized fields of study. To apply to your desired specialized field of study, please create an application by choosing the appropriate general programme. After filling in your personal information you will be able to specify your specialized field of study.

How can I pay for my application?

After submitting your application, the option for paying for your application will appear. You can pay by using your credit/debit card or by bank transfer.

You have to use the OUR payment. Please make sure that your bank enables it. Otherwise, the recipient of the transfer (MU) will have to pay a transfer fee, which will be subtracted from the payment. In that case, the application will not be paid fully. If your bank doesn’t enable OUR transfers, you have to send the fee for the application plus the fee for the transfer (35 CZK).

Problems with payment

  • I paid less than I should have by mistake – Pay the remaining amount of money with the correct identification number that you received while creating your application. You can also attach a note to the payment explaining the situation.
  • I paid about two weeks ago and I don’t see the confirmation in my application – Send a photo of proof of payment to
  • I used a wrong variable symbol or I forgot to fill it in altogether - Send a scan of proof of payment to
  • I will not attend the examination, will you send me the fee back? – All fees associated with the admission procedure cover administrative expenses and are considered non-refundable.

When is the application fee deadline?

The payment is due one day after the application deadline. However, we highly advise you to pay the application fee as soon as possible to avoid cancellation of your application due to missing payment.

Will I like the city of Brno?

Brno, the capital of the Czech province of Moravia, is an ideal base for people wishing to study in Central Europe. The second largest city in the Czech Republic (pop. 400,000), it is large enough to possess all the benefits of a major European center, but small enough to retain its coziness and charm. It is home to six universities and over 75,000 students. The city's historical center echoes that of Vienna, complete with cobblestone pedestrian zones and fascinating architecture spanning the whole period from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Thanks to its strategic location at the heart of Central Europe, major regional centers such as Prague, Bratislava, Vienna, Budapest, and Krakow are within easy reach by train and bus.

Are there any foreign students studying at Masaryk university?

Studies at Masaryk University are truly international. Over 7,000 students come from abroad, and there are hundreds of exchange students coming from around the world each year.
