Erasmus Student Network MUNI Brno (ESN MUNI Brno) is a non-profit and non-political student organisation established in summer 2003 (as International Student Club MU Brno - ISC MU Brno) to help exchange students coming to study at Masaryk University (MUNI) in the new setting. In August 2004, ISC Brno became part of Erasmus Student Network (ESN).
Throughout the semester, we organise several activities for the exchange students. Their main aim is to promote the better involvement of the exchange students in Czech student society and the local cultural life. The main pillars of our activities are:
- Buddy Programme:
Each incoming student (if willing) is paired with a Czech Buddy who will help after arrival and during the whole stay.
- Country Presentations:
Once a week students have a chance to present their country to others
(by a short video, cooking traditional food, some performance, dance, ...).
- Language Courses:
Students can get involved in language courses (one student teaching group of students).
- Trips & Excursions:
We organise shorter trips (in Czechia, e.g. cities around Brno or National Reservations),
and longer excursions (to abroad, e.g., Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava, Wroclaw, …).
We organise either regular or one-shot sports events (e.g. futsal or beach-volleyball).
- Cultural Events:
Cultural Events are trips taken only inside Brno to show them the beauties of our city.
We organise our parties usually on Wednesday nights in clubs. There are also special events such as Tram Party, Beer Marathon, Boat Party, Erasmus Night and much more!
Our structure might be a bit complicated for a newcomer, therefore make sure to check out this graph showing both our structure and our position within the ESN Network:
