Masaryk University (MUNI)
History and objectives
Founded in 1919 and located in Brno, the capital of the historical region of Moravia, Masaryk University (MU) strives to fuse excellent teaching with top research. In the past decade, MU has been the most successful university in the Czech Republic in attracting European investment funding which enabled the birth of several important state-of-the-art facilities and research centres mainly in the university´s new campus, inaugurated in 2010, e.g. the Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC), the Research Centre for Toxic Compounds in the Environment (RECETOX), the Centre of Experimental, Systematic and Ecological Biology (CESEB) and the Laboratory for Experimental Research in Religion (LEVYNA) attracting elite researchers and students from all over the world who contribute in a decisive manner to the international aspect of the city.
MU is also strongly committed to offering first class services to its students: in recent years MU has repeatedly received two European quality labels – the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) label and the Diploma Supplement (DS) label – as well as the first prize ever awarded by the European Association for International Education (EAIE) for Innovation in Internationalization (2013), the EUNIS Elite Award for implementing information systems in higher education (2005), the Erasmus Quality Label (2015 and 2017) and the Erasmus Student Label; no wonder that in the latest QS ranking, Brno is n. 4 in the world according to students´ satisfaction and Masaryk University with its 1400 fields of study repeatedly the best loved Czech university by international students.
