Getting tested is necessary in order for final-year students to attend practical classes, which will be permitted to some students effective from 26 April. Students can get tested at Brno Exhibition Centre already this Saturday and Sunday (24 and 25 April) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Testing is mandatory also for students currently accommodated in MU dormitories and those seeking such accommodation.

For the time being, teaching at the Faculty of Law, Faculty of Economics and Administration, Faculty of Social Studies and Faculty of Informatics will continue online. Opening face-to-face classes in individual study programmes is up to the faculties, so please follow the information they provide.

You can learn about the conditions for access to classes and accommodation in dormitories, including testing options, in the Information for Students section.  

MU students can get tested at the MU testing centre situated at Brno Exhibition Centre (Gate 1 entrance near the “Výstaviště – hlavní vstup” tram/trolleybus stop) in the following weeks, always on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. To register for a test, students use an application in the Information System (COVID-19 test reservation).

Payment conditions for testing are as follows:

  1. For Czech students, i.e. students with full Czech health insurance coverage, tests (1 test every 3 days) are covered by their health insurance company.
  2. For international students who will get tested at the MU testing centre and their health insurance company does not cover testing, tests will be paid for by their faculty (if they are students enrolled with the faculty). Tests administered to students enrolled in international programmes will be covered by the MU Rector’s Office.
  3. International students who get tested at a different testing centre operated by a health services provider and their health insurance company does not cover testing, will have to pay for the test themselves.
  4. Students may also use self-administered testing kits to test themselves. However, MU will not be distributing these kits. Students will have to purchase them on their own. A faculty may decide to reimburse students for such self-administered tests. Please follow the information provided by your faculty to learn more.

The Ministry of Education is currently negotiating aid for universities so that they can reimburse students whose health insurance companies do not cover testing for Covid-19.
