Founded in 1919 in Brno, the capital of the historic Moravian region, Masaryk University aspires to join distinction in teaching with excellence in research.

Faithful to the ideals of democracy, freedom balanced by a respect for rules, and responsibility defended by the first President of Czechoslovakia, Thomas Garrigue Masaryk, whose name it proudly bears, Masaryk University (MU) is currently the second-largest university in the Czech Republic.

Over the past decade, MU has attracted more European investment funding than any other university in the country, enabling the birth of several state-of-the-art facilities and research centres, mainly on Masaryk’s new campus inaugurated in 2010. They include the Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC), the Research Centre for Toxic Compounds in the Environment (RECETOX), the Centre of Experimental, Systematic and Ecological Biology (CESEB) and the Laboratory for Experimental Research in Religion (LEVYNA), attracting an elite group of researchers and students from around the world.
MU is also strongly committed to offering its students first class services: in recent years, the university has consistently been awarded two European quality labels—the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) label and the Diploma Supplement (DS) label. It was also the recipient of the first-ever prize awarded by the European Association for International Education (EAIE) for Innovation in Internationalization (2013), the EUNIS Elite Award for implementing information systems in higher education (2005), the Erasmus Quality Label (2015), and the Erasmus Student Label. No wonder, then, that in the latest QS ranking, Brno is ranked Number 4 in the world on student satisfaction, and Masaryk University has been repeatedly chosen as the best-loved Czech university by international students.
With nine faculties—Law, Medicine, Science, Liberal Arts, Education, Economics and Administration, Informatics, Social Studies, and Sports Studies—and approximately 1400 subject areas encompassing both traditional and newly-emerging disciplines from the natural sciences to the humanities, Masaryk employs more than 5000 people, making it the second-largest employer in the South Moravian region and likely the most dynamic institution of higher education in the country. Twenty percent of its 35 thousand students are international students, and hundreds of visiting foreign academics contribute each year to the school’s international diversity. MU also has solid links with more than 600 universities and research institutions from around the world, some within university networks such as the Utrecht Network and the Compostela Group of Universities.

Masaryk University heads toward its 100th anniversary as an important research institution with quality instruction that teaches its graduates lasting human values—a university whose voice is respected at home and whose active international involvement has made it visible in Europe and around the globe.
