About

Masaryk University, located in Brno, is the second-largest public university in the Czech Republic and the leading higher education institution in Moravia. At present it comprises nine faculties with over 200 departments, institutes and clinics. Recognized as one of the most important teaching and research institutions in the Czech Republic and a highly-regarded Central European university, it has been infused with a strong democratic spirit ever since its establishment in 1919. The university also plays a major role in the social and cultural life of the South Moravian Region.

Masaryk University offers degrees in a wide range of traditional as well as newly-emerging disciplines and is currently one of the fastest-growing higher education institutions in Europe. In recent years it has consistently attracted the largest number of study applicants among Czech universities, thus allowing it to remain highly selective when admitting students. Masaryk University was one of the first to introduce a three-tier degree structure based on the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System and is currently the single higher education institution in the Czech Republic to hold the ECTS Label. Allocated in 2010 by the European Commission, the label constitutes proof of the university's high educational standards and a guarantee of the correct implementation of the credit system in all Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes.

The university is involved in a wide range of mobility activities and research programmes taking place in the European Union and other countries with the objective of enabling graduates of Bachelor’s or Master’s studies at other institutions to continue their Master’s or doctoral studies at Masaryk University. The same principle applies to Masaryk University students who wish to return to their alma mater following a study period abroad.

The university has long been devoted to providing students with sensory or physical disabilities with the care and attention they deserve. The Support Centre for Students with Special Needs ensures that all fields of study accredited at the university are open to these students and that they enjoy the educational standards available to the rest of the student body.

Placing a great deal of emphasis on international cooperation with prestigious foreign universities and research institutions, Masaryk University supports the continuous exchange of knowledge, ideas and information as well as researchers, instructors and students on a worldwide scale, assuring equal educational and research opportunities for all.

Masaryk University is firmly committed to electronic forms of communication. In order to improve both access to information and the quality of studies, it has developed an intranet system featuring a number of tools designed to e.g. assess tens of thousands of application forms, facilitate e-learning, enable students to register for courses and examinations, provide employees with efficient communication channels and support rapid communication between offices and departments. In 2005, the Masaryk University Information System received the prestigious EUNIS Elite Award in recognition of the university’s leading position in the use of information technologies in the academic community.

Masaryk University counts itself among research-oriented institutions of higher education. Numerous successfully resolved projects from a wide range of fields form the best evidence in support of such a claim. Research at Masaryk University is hardly limited to the Czech Republic: the univeresity operates e.g. the first Czech Antartic station, where scientists focus on the long-term exploration of ice-free ecosystems.

The university is also successful in tenders for research and development project funding, achieving many excellent results. Experts from many different fields - the natural sciences, medicine and informatics as well as the humanities, social sciences, law and economics - have received worldwide recognition.

Masaryk University may be considered a pioneering institution with respect to the practical application of research results. A number of patent applications are submitted every year - most notably in the area of biotechnology, plasma technology and information and communication technology.

Libraries

Masaryk University Libraries operate as an integrated system. There is no central library at MU. Each of MUs nine faculties runs its own central library, which provides the library and the information services for that faculty.

Concurrently, a special library of the Support Centre for Students with Special Needs operates at the university. The aim of this special library is to provide support for students with sense-impairment or other handicaps.

There are more than 1.6 million documents in MU libraries, of which one third are available in open access collections. There are also more than 10,000 journals accessible.

You also have access to the Moravian Library, located in the very centre of Brno. It is the second-largest library in the Czech Republic; by law it receives a copy of every book, magazine and sound recording issued in the country. It has extensive materials in foreign languages, and a number of specialised collections, including music, education, and technology, as well as German and Austrian libraries. Most of its catalogues can be accessed via the Internet.
