From Monday 26 April, the physical presence of final-year students in practical, laboratory, experimental and art classes and student placements will be permitted. MU students will return to school, with the exception of the Faculty of Social Studies, Faculty of Economics and Administration, Faculty of Law and Faculty of Informatics. These faculties will continue learning online.
The condition for participation in face-to-face classes is to have a negative test for coronavirus. When first returning to a face-to-face class, students are required to produce a negative test result not older than 48 hours (antigen or PCR test).
Students have to arrange PCR test on their own, however, MU can help them with antigen testing – the university has arranged a testing centre for its students at the Brno Exhibition Centre. Because of the Monday classes, the testing centre will be opened this weekend on Saturday 24 April and Sunday 25 April, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. In the following days, there are time slots reserved for MU students on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.
The testing centre is situated at Brno Exhibition Centre. To register for a test, students have to use an application in the Information System (COVID-19 testing reservation).
Students are asked to arrive for testing at the exact reserved time and bring with them their Health Insurance Card. Students should prepare their reservation QR code (it is sufficient to have it in a mobile phone). Students will receive a link on their mobile phone, along with the booking confirmation, via text message.
Testing at the Brno Exhibition Centre, arranged by Masaryk University, will also guarantee that international students will not pay for testing. For international full-degree students (enrolled with the faculty) tests will be paid for by their faculty. Tests administered to students enrolled in international programmes will be covered by the MU Rector’s Office.
Czech students with full Czech health insurance coverage can get tested once every three days.
Students can also get tested at a different testing centre operated by a health services provider or using a self-administrated test. In that case, students have to arrange everything on their own and then upload the test result into IS. International students have to pay for the test themselves. In the case of a self-administrated test, there is a condition that self-testing must be performed right before the beginning of classes.
Further information on testing is available on MU website muni.cz/en/coronavirus in the section „Information for students“.
