Overview

About Sports, Health, and Management Programme

The semester-long programme offers a wide range of Sports Studies classes. Students choose from up to ten courses per semester which broaden their horizons in the area of sports practice, health in sports, sociology and psychology in sports, and sports management.

Last year, Brno was rated 6th most popular student city in the world and our International Students Club has won multiple awards for offering great experience to our incoming students. While the city is home to many expats and numerous international companies, it remains Czech in its core with all the local food, art and entertainment options. Brno offers you a full study abroad experience while following your passion in an ideal city for sports lovers.

Housing and meals

Students have access the university's dormitories sharing double rooms with Czech or other foreign students. They have access to university computer centres, sports facilities, canteens and laundries. Find more information about dormitories here (for pricing and room descriptions) or in the International Student Guide (on how to get MU accommodation, how to get to the residences,…).

Non-european students

Non-european students and information about visa

The Czech Republic requires non EU citizens to apply for a student visa for all studies over 90 days. Once the application deadline has closed, and students are accepted into the programme, Masaryk University sends the proof of accommodation and the document of the purpose of stay. Originals of these documents are required for applying for the visa. We encourage all students to research the visa requirements and understand the process and to apply as quickly as possible.

Students must have valid passports at the time of applying for the visa, and in most cases submit their passport with the visa application, so the visa sticker can be added.

The standard processing time for student visas is 60 days AFTER the application has been received. However, we encourage students to give themselves 90 days, so as to not be stressed waiting for their visa to arrive.

For example:

  • Flying out 1 September? Apply by 1 June.
  • Flying out 1 February? Apply by 1 November.
