                        INFORMATION FOR APPLICANTS
Dear applicants,
Thank you for your interest in the studies at our faculty. We are pleased to inform you that
foreign applicants can study General Medicine or Dentistry at the Faculty of Medicine,
Masaryk University. Masaryk University is currently rated as twenty-seventh on the list
of all European universities. The curriculum in General Medicine lasts 6 years and is
concluded with the degree of "Medicinae Universae Doctor" (MUDr.) (= M.D., Doctor of
General Medicine). The curriculum in Dentistry lasts 5 years and is concluded with the degree
of "Medicinae Dentalis Doctor" (MDDr.) (Doctor of Dental Medicine). The language of
tuition is English. Students are also obliged to go through the tuition and pass examinations in
the Czech language by the end of their first, second, third, and fourth years of studies. This is
necessary in order that, once they have entered the clinical departments, they may be able to
communicate with patients.
The degrees are fully recognised in the EU and in most other countries at least for a limited
registration, but students should ask the authorities or professional bodies in their countries
for information about the conditions for a full registration and recognition of the degree
required to practice medicine in their countries. The Faculty is listed in the World Directory
of Medical Schools published by the WHO (7th edition, 2000, p. 105).


Tuition fees
The English study of General Medicine costs 9,000 EURO per year and the study of
Dentistry costs 9,500 EURO per year (each year of study consists of two semesters). This
sum holds for those who pay the tuition fee for the whole relevant academic year. The tuition
fee can also be paid in two parts. It means that the student can pay separately for each
semester. In this case the price is raised by administration expenses, and thus each semester of
General Medicine in English costs 4,750 EURO (altogether 9,500 EURO for a whole year of
General Medicine) and each semester of Dentistry in English costs 5,000 EURO (altogether
10,000 EURO for a whole year of Dentistry).


The basic general conditions of admission
Every foreign applicant must have finished successfully at least 4 (or 3) years of studies at a
secondary school (high school) concluded by a school-leaving examination. His or her
secondary school results and a school-leaving certificate are required for further appraisal.


Recognition of previous study
If the applicant already studied a medical faculty, he/she can ask for recognition of some of
the subjects on the basis of a transcript of record and syllabuses of subjects (in English) but at
first he/she must pass the entrance exam. The subjects may be recognized after the enrolment.
Clinical subjects are not recognized at all. Students can be accepted at the most to the 3rd year,
not higher.
