ISEP (International Student Exchange Program)

Masaryk University is the only university in the Czech Republic that is part of the ISEP international network, which allows students to study for the same cost as in the Czech Republic at more than 150 universities in the USA and at dozens of other universities in 50 countries around the world – for example in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and various countries in Latin America, Asia and Africa.

You can find a list of host universities on the webpages of the ISEP organisation. You can follow your study placement in the USA with a traineeship of the same length (Academic Training), which allows you to legally work in the USA in your field of study – you can find further information here. Within the ISEP programme MU does not support students at European universities, since mobility in Europe is possible via the programme Erasmus+.

Final reports from MU students are available in the database CIC Final Reports (only in Czech).

Participation Conditions

  • Participants in the ISEP programme must be full-time bachelor's and master's degree students at Masaryk University.
  • At the time the application form is filled out, applicants must be in the second to fourth years of their studies at MU. This means in years 2, 3, or 4 of the bachelor's program, in the first year of the regular master's program, or in years 2, 3, or 4 of the "long" master's program.
  • The minimum length of the study placement is one semester and the maximum is two. You can follow your study placement in the USA with a traineeship of the same length (Academic Training), which allows you to legally work in the USA in your field of study – you can find further information here.
  • You may participate in the program only once during the course of your studies at MU.
  • We recommend that MU students of law and medicine weigh their participation in the mobility program carefully, because of the differences in the educational systems for these disciplines both in the USA and in other countries (although participation is feasible for MU students who get permission from their home faculty).
  • Throughout the time you study abroad under ISEP, you must maintain active status as a full-time student at MU—in other words, you cannot terminate or interrupt your studies, nor can you change to a status other than full-time student.
  • For each semester of study the student has a duty to get 20 ECTS, or the equivalent in the credit system of the host university.
  • The given programme requires of MU students that after the end of their placement they submit an application for recognition of courses/credits from their foreign placement. You can find further information here.
