So, you’ve passed your entrance exams and now you’re not quite sure about where to enrol? We give you five convincing reasons to head to Brno and study at Muni. You’ll love it here.
1. Control over your schedule and access to other classes taught at the university
At Masaryk University, you are you own master. Every course has a recommended study plan that you can follow to the letter if you want but if you have the appetite for a more varied education, there’s nothing stopping you from registering for extra classes on top of your regular plan. Regardless of which faculty you study at, if you want to dip your toe into the world of economics, law, psychology, foreign languages, or IT then there are few universities that give so much free rein.
2. Brand new or refurbished facilities
No other Czech university has invested as much into its facilities as Masaryk University. And it is not only the modern campus for the Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Science, complete with top-notch labs, or the buildings of the Faculty of Sports Studies, which feature a sports hall and specialized sports facilities. Classrooms, lecture halls, and libraries in all the faculties have been completely renovated with a few just about to be finished. You can look forward to studying in attractive state-of-the-art facilities.
3. Top online study management
The MU Information System, an advanced electronic study management system, has been in place for a number of years and is still one of the best in the world. There are few other universities where you hardly ever need to visit offices or queue to get paperwork done. At Muni, nearly everything can be done online in a few clicks or via email.
4. Brno is one of the best student cities in the world
In recent years, prestigious international newspapers, such as the New York Times, have ranked Brno among the best places to live in the world; similarly, QS, a world university ranking system, ranked Brno in the top five student cities in the world from the perspective of the students. Why is that? The pleasant and friendly atmosphere of a small city combined with a wide range of services and events spiced up with bars and pubs that are among the best the Czech Republic has to offer.
5. The full student experience won’t break the bank
Brno is not Prague – it’s not too small, but not too big; not too cheap, but not too expensive. It’s easy to find affordable student accommodation close to the centre while if you’re on a tight budget or prefer to live on the outskirts, the excellent public transport and short distances mean that your commute will be short and hassle free. And if you find yourself longing for some fresh air away from the hustle and bustle of city life, you do not have a long way to go either. Similarly, food, sports, events, and parties don’t need to cost an arm and a leg. Brno makes it easy for you to choose from both the more expensive and the cheaper options. In short, we are ready for students. You will find all the fun that you could have in Prague, minus the tourist crowds.
