Vienna Campus
A study visa is necessary for non-EU/non-Austrian citizens. The process to obtain a visa should start early to allow time in the case of delays. MU supports incoming exchange students throughout the process. Extensive information about entry regulations for students in Austria can be found here:
MA35, the Visa authority in Vienna, is not accepting some foreign insurance policies. To be on the safe side, we recommend Austrian health insurance WGKK (~€55 a month) for all students applying for a residency permit for their time in Austria. All students will be informed on how to receive WGKK during Orientation week or with help from their MU Buddy. To bridge the few weeks in Vienna until they receive their insurance, students should purchase travel insurance at home.


All incoming exchange students must attend mandatory orientation for new students during the first week of the semester. MU recommends that all exchange students must arrive at least a few days before orientation starts.

MU Buddy

All exchange students are eligible to be assigned an MU Buddy. A more senior student will pick up the exchange student from the airport and help them get settled. Students must provide arrival details at least 3 weeks before Orientation Week.


Vienna Campus
Exchange students are guaranteed a single room in a 2 persons suite at our local accommodation provider at around €300 a month, as long as reservations are sent on time (see deadlines above). Students will receive more detailed information in their welcome packet.


Exchange students have access to all Bachelor courses on offer in any given semester, schedule permitting. Some of the advanced courses have pre-requisites, and admission to these courses will be decided on a case-by-case basis. The minimum English language level of undergraduate students is B2.
German Language courses are offered at MU Vienna campus.


A full-time load is equivalent to 30 ECTS points, but many exchange students take a range of between 20 and 30 ECTS points. The amount taken depends on the requirements of the home university and which courses the student needs accredited in the given semester.
