FAQ

  • It is not compulsory to participate in Welcome Week, although we highly recommend it.
  • You can use someone else´s payment card. Ask your parents or friends.
  • Unfortunately, we accept only payment via Flywire.
  • It gives you access to classrooms, labs, dormitories and other MENDELU facilities. You will need to use university printers, scans and copy machines. You can use it to pay in MENDELU canteens and cafeterias. And it will also get you a student discount at many places outside MENDELU. Thus, it is not only necessary, but also convenient.
  • Unfortunately, our systems cannot read ISICs issued by other institutions and thus, we cannot upload your access rights to it. Therefore, you also have to buy MENDELU ISIC.
  • Lunch in student canteen on Monday, trasportation during trips outside of Brno, entrance tickets to the chateau and caves, wine degustation.
  • Your involvement in the Welcome Week activities is solely up to you. Though, we highly recommend Monday and Tuesday information sessions as you will get all the necessary information there.
  • The price of the participation fee can be reduced to 1000 CZK, if you take part only in one of the two trips and if you specify in the registration form which one it will be.
