Masaryk University, in collaboration with CEITEC - one of the strongest research institutions in Central Europe, stands apart from other universities as a place to learn. Drawing on these achievements and also enhancing its dynamic place, it opens up its research facilities to undergraduate or graduate foreign students for an intensive summer research internship.

Incoming students will be required to work at least 250 hours (8 hours a day, 4 days a week, 8 weeks in total) on a specific project assigned and supervised by local faculty members.

The program will consist of lectures and seminars on the given topic, movie screening, concerts, shows, museum and historical sites visit, as well as in-town and out-of-town excursions. Finally, there will be three-day trips to the regional capitals (Prague, Vienna and Budapest) where students will be able to understand the Central European context to the Czech identity.
