Credit and Language Requirements
Foreign students wishing to come to Masaryk University on foreign exchange placements must meet the university's requirements concerning the level of the foreign language and the minimum number of credits per semester. You can find further information below.
All international students at Masaryk University are obliged to achieve a minimum of at least 20 ECTS credits in each semester.
With respect to our partners (students’ home universities) the minimum number of ECTS credits set by home universities has higher preference. However, our minimum number of credits still needs to be achieved.
Example: If your university requires 30 ECTS per semester you need to follow the home university credit requirements. However, if your university requires 15 ECTS, you have to follow our credit limit requirements and gain at least 20 ECTS per semester. In some cases, the home university has no credit requirements – this means you have to follow ours of 20 ECTS/semester.
In the case of failure to reach the minimum number of credits, the home university will be informed about the student’s failure and an official e-mail will be sent to coordinators at the student’s home university. Such a student may expect some further consequences determined by home universities, and/or might not be permitted to prolong their studies at Masaryk University.
