Student Identity Cards

Students of full-time studies at MU are issued the International Student Identity Card (ISIC). Combined studies students are issued a smart card which fully replaces all functions of the ISIC within MU.

In order to obtain an ISIC/student identity card, you need to:

  • enrol in studies
  • obtain an official photograph. Identity card photographs are taken at enrolment but you may arrange an alternate time with the Institute of Computer Science
  • order your identity card via the MU Information System (Czech only) and pay the associated fee

Please collect your card through your faculty's Office for Studies following the beginning of the autumn semester. In case your card is lost, stolen or damaged, please report this to the Office for Studies. Your card will be locked in order to prevent abuse and a new one will be issued.

Student Identity Cards within MU

Your student identity card has the following functions:

  • student identification and MU affiliation
  • access to buildings and classrooms
  • access to university computer rooms
  • access to libraries and library services
  • access to copy and print services in libraries and computer rooms
  • access to catering services in university canteens.

Your card is valid for the entire duration of your active studies at MU. Should you return after a period of interrupted or terminated studies, card validity will be automatically restored.

ISIC Usage outside MU

ISIC holders are eligible for a number of student discounts outside of the university, including discounts in restaurants, cafés, bakeries, outdoor sport shops, pharmacies, optical shops, museums, galleries, bookshops, copy centres, selected driving schools, transportation providers such as Student Agency, etc. The ISIC is valid in over 100 countries worldwide and may thus be used for discounts around the globe.

A full list of student discounts is available via the ISIC website.

An ISIC card issued by MU is only valid outside of the university until 31 December of the following year. In order to continue enjoying its benefits, it is necessary to acquire a revalidation sticker. The sticker may be ordered via the IS MU Shopping Centre. It is valid for 16 months, i.e. from 1 September to 31 December of the following year.
