Anmeldung & Zulassung

All individuals interested in applying to the Medicine degree program (UO 202) and/or the Dentistry degree program (UO 203) at the Medical University of Graz must take an entrance exam.

The available places in the Medicine and Dentistry degree programs are awarded based on the entrance exam. In addition, the "quota rule" applies to the Medicine degree program.

Applicants who receive a place to study based on the entrance exam must furnish proof that they have met the admissions requirements for regular degree programs:

Prior education in Austria:

  • school-leaving certificate/successful completion of the school-leaving exam/Matura (or university entrance qualification exam)
  • Information for applicants with prior education abroad or third-country nationals.

Deadline for admission

Please note that due to an amendment to the University Act shorter deadlines for admission and the re-registration for the continuation of studies will apply. The new deadline for all studies including the postgraduate education is October 31, 2022. Missing the deadline will result in the closure of your studies and thus you will not be able to complete any academic achievements.

Supplementary exams

Latin

Supplementary exam in the form of an additional exam at the university

Graduates of secondary schools that do not require Latin, individuals who have passed the university entrance qualification exam and degree program graduates must take an additional exam in Latin according to § 4 par. 1 lit. a of the current version of the University Entrance Qualification Decree (UBVO 1998), Austrian Federal Law Gazette (BGBl.) II no. 258/2018, before they complete the first phase of the Medicine and Dentistry degree programs.

According to § 4 par. 2 of the UBVO, the requirement to take the supplementary exam in Latin does not apply if applicants have successfully completed a Latin class of at least ten hours a week in secondary school.

If the supplementary exam in Latin has not been taken by the deadline, the first phase of the Medicine and Dentistry degree programs may not be completed. This means that students must furnish proof of the supplementary exam in Latin before they can take the last exam of the first phase of the Medicine and Dentistry programs.

According to § 6 par. 2 of the UBVO, the supplementary exam in Latin may be completed as an additional exam at a university. It is a university exam in accordance with the university legislation governing exams (especially the statutes on provisions regulating university studies).

The content of the supplementary exam in Latin is based on the Latin curriculum from the upper level of the academic secondary schools.

One location where the required supplementary exam in Latin may be taken at the University of Graz is treffpunkt sprachen - Centre for Language, Plurilingualism and Didactics, Johann-Fux-Gasse 30/I, 8010 Graz. It is also necessary to be concurrently enrolled as a student at the University of Graz..

Students in the Medicine and Dentistry degree programs at Med Uni Graz have another option for taking the supplementary exam in Latin: A lecture with exercises (VU) entitled "Terminology of medical language" that includes a written final exam is offered to students required to take the supplementary exam in Latin.

Biology and environmental studies

According to the UBVO, the supplementary exam in biology and environmental studies is no longer required for applications for admission to the Medicine and Dentistry degree programs as of winter semester 2019/20. (Decision of the Medical University of Graz– published in the newsletter dated 28 November 2018)
