What is the difference between programmes and classes?

There are two opportunities available to students to study with us during the summer and winter periods. The first are summer/winter school programmes which offer comprehensive programs to students and include not just academic courses, but also site visits, excursions to neighboring capital cities (Prague, Budapest, Vienna, etc.) and daily social and cultural activities organized through local assistants. 

On the other hand, summer/winter school classes are only the academic course, and no other programing. They also are shorter than the other programmes that are organized. 

How can I apply?

Application instructions for each individual programme are available on the individual page of the programme. If you have any questions, you can email us at

What is your policy regarding COVID-19?

MUNI 2023 Covid-19 Guarantee:

Masaryk University wants to provide as much assurance to the safety and health to our participants and teachers as possible. Our summer and winter schools by nature require students to be in close contact (traveling as a group, classes, social activities, and living together), as such there is no way to mitigate all risks, below are the policies for Masaryk University Summer and Winter Schools.

  • Students who test positive with Covid-19 and send us proof within 2 weeks of the start programme will receive a 90% refund.
  • Full payment for the programmes are required 30 days prior to the start of the programme (this is to provide students as much flexibility as possible).
  • No refunds for cancellation within 30 days of the start of the programme, except for proof of Covid-19 as mentioned above.
  • If Masaryk University is required to cancel the programme for any reason prior to the start of the programme, a full refund will be provided.
  • If an excursion (Prague, Vienna, Budapest, etc.) needs to be cancelled due Covid-19 related issues and a substitute cannot be provided to students, then a refund of up to €300 will be provided to each student.
  • Vaccination: Students participating on Summer and Winter schools organized by the Centre for International Cooperation are required to be vaccinated with a vaccination recognized by the Czech government. Recognized vaccination certificates can be found here. When in doubt please email us at This will ensure students are able to fully participate in the academic, culture, and social activities. If possible, students should have received a booster shot. Prior to the start of the programme MU will inform students of all entry requirements. Students who are unable to be vaccinated due to medical reasons should provide documentation and communicate with the summer school organizers.
  • As per Czech law, any student who becomes positive for Covid-19 will be put into a quarantine. Masaryk University will cover the cost for 1 Covid-19 test for all students in contact. If the quarantine lasts longer than the programme dates, MU will help the student find accommodation, however the costs for all accommodation after the end of the programme are the responsibility of the student.
  • Students will be required to purchase trip protection insurance that will cover the cost of accommodation and change in travel IF they become sick past the duration of the programme. MU will help students secure accommodation if required after the dates of the programme, however the student is responsible for all costs.

Can anyone apply?

Yes, we accept students from all around the world, and prior experience in the theme of the course is not always required however interest must be explained (i.e. we are happy to consider applications from engineering students for an international relations course). In their application, applicants should explain why they are interested in the course and how they think they can add to the discussion.

Students must be 18+.

Do you offer scholarships?

The majority of our programs offers a €500 discount to students from partner universities (for in person programs) and a €100 discount to students from partner universities (for online programs).

If you have any other questions, please feel free to email us at

How hard are the classes?

These programmes are designed for students that a) willing to spend time studying and learning and b) want to see Europe. We strive to find a balance between the two, however students should not expect a vacation, and will have to set aside time to study.
