Masaryk University is the second largest Czech university. Its ten faculties educate more than 30,000 students in 150 study programmes in the fields of medicine, natural sciences, humanities and informatics. Masaryk University employs more than 6,000 people, making it the second largest employer in the South Moravian Region and probably the most dynamic university in the country.
Masaryk University is an internationally recognised research university. In cooperation with six Brno institutions, it operates CEITEC - a multidisciplinary centre of scientific excellence whose results contribute to improving the quality of life and human health. Since 2007, it has operated a research station in Antarctica, which it also uses to test technologies or products for the application sphere.
In addition to teaching and scientific activities, Masaryk University also fulfils its role in society. It thinks and acts sustainably, promotes science and helps those in need through its volunteer centre. Thanks to the Mendel Museum, it cares for the legacy of the father of genetics, guards the copyright of Leoš Janáček's works and operates its own Scala University Cinema.
