Foreign students admitted into Master’s degree programmes can take advantage of a number of scholarship programmes. ECON MUNI does not provide scholarships to cover your tuition fee, as our tuition fees are already subsidized by the Czech government. However, we provide eligible students with an accommodation scholarship (see below).
To explore other scholarship opportunities, you can find some recommendations below:

Cost of living
Brno offers a high quality of life for a great price. The cost of living in Brno is very low in comparison to other EU cities, which allows students to live comfortably on a very small budget. The monthly cost of shared university housing is between 70-140 EUR, private apartment would be for a monthly price of €80–320. Monthly public transportation pass is 10 EUR for students, monthly groceries about 100 EUR. These websites are quite good for getting a better idea of the real cost of living in Brno: Expatistan or Numbeo.
