Health Care


We recommend registering with a GP as soon as you arrive to Brno. Find the list of English speaking practitioners below. Register early, so you avoid searching for a GP once you are unwell and need a treatment. Always call/email first!


Students need to get a Czech insurance (VZP insurance company) in order to get their treatment paid by the scheme. Otherwise, you will pay in cash. Please consult your insurance company, or directly the VZP for more information:

Unless it's urgent, we recommend making an appointment in advance on the phone. Don't forget to take the insurance card, number or any document proving your insurance.


Always take a medical note if you happen to miss your class due to an illness or a doctor's appointment. You will need to upload the note into the IS, once applying for an apology of absence.
