Po proběhnutých přijímacích zkouškách jsou sestaveny seznamy přijatých studentů. Hranice bodů z TSP, při které studenty přijímáme, nelze stanovit – záleží na celkovém poštu přihlášených uchazečů, na množství uchazečů se SCIO OSP testy apod.

Unfortunately, our faculty offers only full-time study programmes.

If the admission procedure is successful, you submit your high school graduation certificate and enrol at the school.

Enrolment takes place in July 2022. We will inform you of the exact date.

MENDELU issues an ISIC card to full-time students. It is also used as a MENDELU student ID card and allows you to prove your student status worldwide.

The card is used, among other things, in:

  • the canteen – you will top up the card and the price of food you buy will be deducted from it
  • libraries
  • the campus to enter limited access area
  • the residence halls (to enter)
  • the arboretum (to enter)

Note: If you have another ISIC card from a different university, it is not valid at MENDELU. You can’t use it as your ID because it doesn’t show your student number. You won’t be able to use it for the above mentioned cases.

The start dates of the semesters are not as fixed as at high schools.

Therefore, you need to follow the academic year timetable, where you need to click on a specific semester (ZS = winter semester, starts in September; SS = summer semester, starts in February).

In the first semester, the timetable is set by the faculty. Within the study group to which you’re assigned, the timetable is given and you meet the same classmates all the time.

From the second semester onwards, you set your own timetable according to your needs and time availability. The selection is made on the basis of the available times of lectures and practicals.

Yes, we want our students not only to study theory, but to gain practical knowledge and skills. All our students must therefore complete a work placement as part of their studies.
In Bachelor programmes, the duration is 4 weeks.
In the follow-up Master programmes, the internship is longer (5 weeks).

As the name of the faculty suggests, we place great emphasis on knowledge of foreign languages.

In the International Area Studies programme, some courses are taught in English.

You must take two consecutive semesters of a foreign language course during your bachelor studies. You can choose from the following language courses at different levels of proficiency: English, German, French and Spanish.

Not only is it possible, but we actively encourage students to go abroad.

It is possible to travel as part of study stays, foreign internships or bilateral agreements (Erasmus+, CEEPUS, etc.). We also have a number of our own foreign projects that you can actively participate in (e.g. Peru, Philippines, South Africa…) and do your first scientific research there, on which you can perhaps base your bachelor’s or master’s thesis.

Our graduates say that the international placements greatly enriched their lives in every possible way and that they draw on this experience for many years.

Sport is an integral part of the lifestyle for many students. That’s why we have the MENDELU Sports Activities Centre, which offers a range of opportunities to take an active break from studying.

And if you want to combine top-level sport and studying at the same time, we have a Talented Athlete Support Programme, which ensures individual approach.

Yes, there has been an Akademická unie student society at FRDIS for several years.

Here you will not only find support and advice from senior students, the Union also organizes social events such as the Faculty Ball, student competitions and quizzes, events for future freshmen, etc.

If you get actively involved in the organisation and running of the Union, you’ll also find a source of valuable experience that will come in handy in the future.

The Student Officers or our Ambassadors will be happy to answer your questions…
