Erasmus, Exchange and Guest Students
Your Studies at Masaryk University
All exchange and guest students find basic information about applying in the Admission section – Erasmus and other exchange students.
This page is for all students that are already selected and coming to Masaryk University. If you come via one of the large exchange schemes (Erasmus+, Erasmus Mundus, ISEP, MU bilateral agreements), your studies are officially administered by the MU Center for International Cooperation.
If you come via FSS bilateral agreements or as guest students (including IVF, CEEPUS), you are administered by our International Office.
Choice of Courses
Please, keep in mind that it is recommended that you register (and fill in in your Learning Agreement) at least 50 % of your courses here at the department or degree program that correspond to your degree program at home and if applicable, also the agreement signed (by which we mean that in case you study sociology at home, you should take at least half of your courses within sociology at MU). Choose courses from your level of studies, exceptions are rare. Codes lower than 300 are intended for undergraduate (Bachelor) students. Other social science courses are also open to you - you can choose classes according to your interests from the Faculty of Social Studies offer, or some from the whole Masaryk University offer. Apart from English-taught courses, there are also courses taught in German, French, etc. If you speak Slavonic languages, you might try Czech-taught classes too.
Registration of thesis writing seminars (or dissertation writing for PhD students) is not recommended – it can be approved by our departments only in exceptional cases after mutual agreement of both universities and specific teachers.
