Scholarship opportunities

Foreign students admitted into Master’s degree programmes can take advantage of a number of scholarship programmes.

Visa information

To help you navigate the visa application process smoothly, here are some essential details:

  • Visa Processing Time: The visa process for the Czech Republic may take some time. We strongly recommend that you start gathering information as soon as possible. Being well-informed about the process ensures that you are fully aware of what lies ahead.
  • Information Resources: The best source of information for what you need for the visa process is the Czech embassy in your country. They can provide the most relevant details about the visa application process. A summary can also be found in the International Student Visa Guide.
  • Our Assistance: While we are here to assist you in obtaining your visa, please note that we are unable to facilitate appointments and our role and possibilities are rather limited.
  • Student Visa Mode: The Student Visa Mode was set up by the Czech Government to simplify the visa process for students from selected countries who have been accepted to study at universities. After successfully passing the entrance exams, we will contact eligible applicants with more information. Being on the Student Mode list doesn't guarantee visa approval. If a student fails to provide all necessary documents during the interview, they will be taken off the Student Mode list, and they won't be considered for inclusion again. For list of eligible countries, see the Visa Requirements section of the MUNI website.
