Mendel University in Brno is the oldest independent specialized university in the Czech Republic. Its founding was preceded, from 1864 onwards, by efforts to establish an agricultural university in Moravia which, however, failed because of obstacles of a political, economic and ethnic character.
Five faculties and one institute - the Faculty of Agronomy, Faculty of Forestry and Wood Technology, Faculty of Business and Economics, Faculty of Horticulture, Faculty of Regional Development and International Studies and Institute of Lifelong Education.
The research centres, grant-funded research, specific research (especially research of the students in PhD and Master's study programs) and participation in international research programs are some of the priority activities in the internationalization of the university. At the same time, these are the areas into which the available scientific research capacity of the university departments is directed.
The long tradition of Mendel University in Brno and the professional and teaching expertise of academic staff have created very good conditions for high-quality, interesting studies and good career opportunities for graduates.
Mendel University in Brno is a university with three-degree (Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctorate) accredited studies and a credit system (ECTS) is used to evaluate the results of the studies.
