About summer programme
This programme is designed as a platform where multiple courses from a wide of Masaryk University study programmes and departments will be offered. These courses will be arranged in an intensive and dynamic form, each working day there will be an academic session, and these may take the form of a lecture, seminar, company visit or practical field work. As the courses offered will greatly vary, so too will the level of the course, so that anyone from undergrads to PhD candidates can find a course that can enrich their respective curriculum.
In addition to the academics, cultural and social programming will be offered, including the option of a one-day excursion to Vienna and/or Prague.
Learning outcomes: Each course will have a different and unique outcome.
Classes take place Monday-Friday (usually) in the mornings. The site visits and learning outside the classroom takes place in the afternoons. Culture/social activities will take place in the afternoons/nights.

Brno is a great place to live, even if just for a short period of time. As a student city (1/5 of the population are students) and an international city there is always something to do, and the Czech language isn’t a barrier. This means that exploring cafes, teahouses, restaurants and the local sites is easy, even without our amazing assistants. However, because we want you to get the most out of your experience, we have a team of local Czech students to show you their favourite things in Brno!
The team of professional and local students provides the 24/7 assistance from the practical and safety arrangements to creating a rich cultural program helping the participants to understand better culture of Moravia and Central Europe in general. Moreover the staff is trying to assist with creating social activities that aims at enhancing the mutual cultural exchange and understanding.
Students in this program are housed in one of our Residence Halls where both international and Czech students live during the school year. This is a great opportunity to see how student housing is different all around the world (or is similar, depending on what country you are from!). In Brno, students share a room with one other student, while on trips, students are three per room.
Bedding is provided; however, students should bring their own towels. Students will have an opportunity to cook their own meals, some cooking supplies will be provided, as supplies last.
Please follow this link and choose the correct programme. You might apply to more than one course to ensure you have a backup plan in case the course of your first choice does not open (the minimum enrollment for a course to be offered - unless specified differently - is five students). Do not forget to include all the necessary information (and documents if requested) including writing a short statement of purpose. We will contact you afterwards to tell you if your application was successful and to discuss the further steps (including the deposit payment) with you.
Life in Brno...
