Why should you choose MENDELU for your university studies?
Mendel University in Brno (abbreviated to MENDELU) is a public institution with a long tradition of excellence in teaching and research that has driven new ways of thinking since 1919 and proudly bears the name of J. G. Mendel, the founder of modern genetics. But why exactly should you choose it as your alma mater?
High-quality education that is centred on practical knowledge
Mendel University in Brno owns unique facilities dedicated to science and teaching, which offer our students the opportunity to develop and confront their skills and knowledge.
A recent study also shows our graduates find work easily and stay in their field.
Wide range of study fields to choose from
Mendel University offers more than 100 different graduate degree programmes in Czech and English languages. You can study at any of our five faculties and one institute.
Faculty of AgriSciences – e.g. General Agriculture, Chemistry, Ecology and Environmental Protection
Faculty of Forestry and Wood Technology – e.g. European Forestry, Furniture Technology, Forest Protection and Game keeping
Faculty of Business and Economics – e.g. Economics and Management, Open Informatics, System Engineering and Informatics

As a student of one faculty, you can also choose to study subjects from the other faculties as an optional course. That allows you to branch out of your field and broaden your horizons.
Everything you could need is on or around the university campus. It’s located in the central part of Brno and includes the above mentioned Botanical Garden and Arboretum accessible to all our students.
Living in Brno
Brno is a lively student city that offers you all the advantages of living in a city without the constant busyness and rush of capital. It is the second-largest city in the Czech Republic, is consistently being voted among the best student cities and has a perfect location in the heart of Europe to visit other European cities. It takes just two hours by bus to Vienna (Austria) and Bratislava (Slovakia) and four hours by car to Budapest (Hungary), Dresden (Germany), and Wroclaw (Poland).
A large community of international students
There are over 8,300 students at the university, including 5,500 undergraduates and 2,800 postgraduates. And almost 20% of all our students at MENDELU are from abroad.
Focus on sustainability
Research topics at MENDELU are often related to sustainability and climate change. They are up to date and often work with universities around the world. Recently there has been an expedition to the rainforest in the area of El Paraiso, and our students took part in research at the island of Socotra.
