The document the completed education by uploading an authorized conversion of the Czech school-leaving certificate or a foreign certificate of secondary education that is automatically recognized under the equivalence agreement between the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Hungary, Germany, Poland, or Slovenia, into the e-application, section “Studies, examinations and documents”, subsection “Enrolment documents”, by 13 June 2022. If the document is in another language than Czech, Slovak or English, its certified translation must be attached.

Authorised conversion is a method of official verification of a document by converting it into electronic form. It may be carried out e.g. at Czech POINT. More information: https://is.muni.cz/go/authorisedconversion.

The dean’s admission decision shall be issued after the completed education has been verified. If you fail to submit the certificate of the completion of secondary education finished with a school-leaving examination, the dean shall issue a decision on admission denial due to the failure to meet the admissions requirement under Section 48 Higher Education Act.

Pursuant to Section 61, Paragraph 1 of the Act, an applicant becomes a university student on the day of his / her enrolment on study programs.

Alternative registration deadline

If the applicant does not register in due time, it is possible to provide an excuse via e-mail to the study department, no later than five days from the date of regular enrolment, after which they may be assigned an alternative enrolment date.

Complete the identification process as soon as possible as you will not be able to download the electronic study certificate yourself without the identification.

How to proceed when providing a photograph

After enrolling for your studies online you will need to provide a photograph, which will be used to process identification cards, which in most cases will be ISIC cards. Ownership of an identification card is one of the requirements of MU students, so don’t forget to order it through the Shopping Centre.

MU information system (IS) and the student ISIC card

Almost all administration at our faculty can be completed online via the MU Information System (we call it the IS). Course registration, registration for exams, confirmation of study, communication with teachers, download of study materials - you can do it all from any computer. The MU IS is very intuitive.

How to log in to the Information System (IS)

After enrolling on your study program, you can log in to the MU IS at https://is.muni.cz using your university number (UČO) and password.

You will already have received your UČO during enrolment. This will accompany you throughout your studies; and don’t worry, you will soon be able to write it backwards.

You set your password when you registered online. Keep it a secret and don’t give it to anyone! Any operation performed on the basis of entering your password is considered to be unambiguously authenticated and has binding validity, similar to operations performed in person or in writing at the administrative departments of the faculty and university.

Certificate of study

You can print the certificate of study yourself in the MU IS. The electronic certificate of study is a fully-fledged variant of the certificate of study printed on paper, stamped and signed by the responsible person.

You will not be able to download the electronic certificate of study yourself, nor will the study department issue you a paper certificate of study. Therefore, perform the identification as soon as possible.

University e-mail

Each student has an e-mail box available in the MU IS with an address in the form UČO@mail.muni.cz. This address is functional even after setting your nickname. Electronic communication is the preferred form of communication at MU. Please communicate with us via this official university e-mail. (Please do not email us from private e-mail addresses.)

Tracking of university mail is mandatory. You will receive important news from the management of the faculty and the study department at this address. The system also posts information on newly entered course marks, messages from teachers and the like. You can also download mail to your home computer or forward it to another stable inbox. A notification of a new message is displayed on the title page of the MU IS. Empty your mailbox regularly, you can’t send mail when your mailbox is full.

If you use a reliable e-mail service elsewhere, you can forward your messages there. You can learn more about forwarding mail or choosing a nickname in the help section.

Useful links

Student ID card

Every MU student must have a student ID card, which can serve as a chip card within the university and, in the case of an ISIC card, will also allow you to receive a range of student discounts.

The card can be ordered in the Shopping Centre in the MU IS (OC):

  • Full-time students can order a full ISIC card (CZK 180),
  • Students of combined studies can only order a student card (120 CZK).

Once the card is issued, students will receive instructions for collection via e-mail. The card can only be issued once the correct amount for the card has been credited to the MU account (OC-My orders).
