Doctoral Studies


Students in present (meaning on-campus) forms of study shall receive a monthly stipend to support their studies in a doctoral program (see MU Scholarship and Bursary Regulations). The scholarship amounts to CZK 7,300 ( the amount is determined annually by the Dean's Committee according to the MEYS guidelines ). The amount is sent at the beginning of each month by a bank transfer to the student's account, which he/she has entered into the IS.

Exceptionally, students may be awarded a scholarship for outstanding results in research or development activities, for an outstanding dissertation or publication, or a significant representation of the faculty. These scholarships are proposed by the student's supervisor, the Head of the Department, or the Dean of the Faculty.

The decisions on granting scholarships to students are delivered via e-mail to their e-mail address in the IS. To make sure that the decision was really delivered to the student, the student must send back a message confirming their acceptance of the scholarship. Without this message the scholarship payment cannot be made. If a student fails to confirm this acceptance, he/she must then go in person to the appropriate department of the Dean's office to sign and obtain the documents in paper form.

The scholarship cannot be paid until the decision made has come into legal force. Under the Higher Education Act, a student has the right to request a re-evaluation of the decision made regarding the scholarship within 30 days of its delivery. The decision comes into force only after the expiry of this period. The student can therefore speed up the entire process by making a statement that he/she waives their right to request a re-evaluation of the decision made. This statement (waiver) is part of the online "confirmation of acceptance", which the student sends back to the school (or signs in person at the appropriate department of the Dean's office) as mentioned above.

The decision in certificated paper form will be issued to the student upon request at the Dean's Office.
