Founded in 1919, Masaryk University is the second largest university in the Czech Republic. Located throughout the city of Brno, the 6th most popular student city worldwide, students split their time between state-of-the-art facilities, and all the city has to offer. University facilities include several new libraries, a wide range of sports facilities (gyms, sports fields, rowing center, indoor and outdoor tennis courts), a botanical garden, university cinema and several student clubs at individual faculties. The total enrollment is around 30,000 students. As a leading institution in the Czech Republic, Masaryk University offers numerous opportunities for visiting students to get involved in research, attend guest lecturers from ambassadors, and join student organizations (including the largest student radio in Central Europe)!

    The historical capital of Moravia, Brno combines a rich cultural legacy with the vibrancy of a university city that is home to six universities (of which Masaryk University is the largest) and over 75,000 students. Brno is both the judicial capital of the Czech Republic and has been dubbed the ‘Silicone Valley of Central Europe’ making it a great place for students who study IT, business, law, and social sciences. Many professors incorporate the city and its connections into their classes. Although the city’s population is 20% international due to the numerous companies, the city is not a traditional tourist destination. This provides a unique combination for students for students to experience Czech culture while having the benefits of English being widely spoken. Since 1 in every 5 inhabitants are students, the city is full with student life, at friendly prices, and a wide range of culture and culinary opportunities. 

     

    Thanks to its strategic location at the heart of Central Europe, major regional centers such as Prague, Bratislava, Vienna, Budapest and Krakow are within easy reach by train and bus. In the immediate vicinity of Brno, the Moravian highlands to the north and west offer outstanding opportunities for hiking, bicycling and skiing. Southeast of Brno is the Czech Republic's main wine-producing region, with its many ancient cellars, now linked by a new network of ecology-friendly bicycle trails. Using the intricate Czech public transportation systems, it is easy to explore all over the Czech Republic and internationally!

     

    The International Student Club (ESN) on campus promotes and sponsors activities to help exchange students transition into life at Masaryk. A list of their activities can be found under the "Featured Programs" link.

     

    Orientation benefits are also included in your program. This includes arrangements for registering for courses and obtaining documents you will need. A typical orientation week also includes tours of the university and its facilities, talks on Czech culture and Czech society and the Czech university system, a mini-“crash course” in Czech, meeting with Masaryk University teachers and students, a tour of Brno and a day-long excursion into the city.

     

    Masaryk University also offers day and weekend-long excursions into the surrounding area, which are available for all ISEP students; however, the costs are not included in the program fee for ISEP Exchange and Direct students. In the past, students participating in ISEP have traveled to places including Vienna, Budapest, Krakow, the Cerna Hora brewery and the National Park, Moravian Karst.
