“University Courses” (according to § 56 UG) are by legal definition so-called extraordinary studies (§ 51 Abs. 2 Z 20 UG) which are designed part-time and generally characterized by updating and broadening knowledge and competencies and acquiring skills in a particular topic.
Important note: These are not to be confused with regular (consecutive) master studies in line with the new structure recommended by the Bologna Process (Bachelor: 2 semesters, 180 ECTS; Master: 4 semesters, 120 ECTS).
The Medical University of Vienna currently offers 18 Postgraduate Programs taking into account the various educational biographies that are to be found in the field of work. These programs cover a wide ranging spectrum and end up with a Master of Science degree (MSc), the title "Academic certified" or a Master of Business Administration (MBA). With its focus on research-oriented teaching, the MedUni Vienna represents an attractive portfolio that ensures high quality in the continuing education process [» Atlas of Good Teaching (in german)].
Implementation of this type of program is regulated by its own curricula. These curricula determine the form of the qualification profile of graduates, duration and structure of modules, methods of assessment and admission requirements.
Postgraduate Programs, in form of "University Courses", are subject to tuition fees.
