Students who are not eligible for any scholarship programme or their home universities do not have a bilateral agreement with Masaryk University can apply as Freemovers.
Freemover (or guest) students who would like to study at the Faculty of Economics and Administration for a semester or two without obtaining the degree are exempted from the duty to pay the tuition fee, on the other hand they are not eligible for any kind of scholarship or financial support from our side.
Thus, the student does not need to pay for the courses (except commercial courses such as Czech language course or some sports/PE activities), but the living costs (such as transportation, accommodation or/and boarding) are to be covered from the student's own financial sources or scholarship from other parties if the student is able to arrange some.
Freemovers are administered at faculty level, which means that the Office for International Relations deals with the application process, helps with study-related matters and can arrange the accommodation for you.
If you would like to study at the Faculty of Economics and Administration as a guest student, please fill in the following Application form and upload there your motivation letter together with the CV, transcript of records and proof of English language competence.
The Vice-dean for external affairs Mr. Petr Smutný will evaluate your documentation and decide about your admission. If you are accepted by the faculty, we will issue an acceptance letter which you will need for the administration of the study mobility at your home university and eventually for getting your visa.
