What is an ÖH contribution and do I have to pay it?

ÖH is the abbreviation for "österreichische Hochschülerschaft", the ÖH fee finances student representation at all Austrian universities. The ÖH fee also covers accident and liability insurance. The ÖH fee must be paid every semester in order to maintain a student relationship.

Are there tuition fees and how much do they cost?

The tuition fee depends on a valid residence title on the one hand and on the duration of studies on the other hand. The Master's programme "Molecular Precision Medicine" lasts 4 semesters plus 2 tolerance semesters, so the tuition fee is due from the 6th semester.

Is it possible to waive the tuition fees?

A temporary exemption from tuition fees exists for regular students of a Master's or doctoral programme for the duration of the standard period of study plus two tolerance semesters. For non-EU/EEA citizens, a residence permit (e.g. VISA D, Red-White-Red Card) must also be presented. You can find all further information here.

I forgot to pay my tuition fees, what now?

Please contact mpm@meduniwien.ac.at as soon as you notice that you have been exmatriculated. In the worst case scenario, you will have to re-admit for the following semester. This can only be decided on a case-by-case basis.n.

  • For the enrolment of the 2nd semester (and each subsequent semester), you must pay the required tuition and ÖH fee for each semester within the enrolment deadlines.
  • The online payment data for further enrolment can be found in MedCampus under the menu item "Tuition fee status".

If the payment for enrolment is not made within the prescribed deadlines, your admission, enrolment and MedCampus student account will be blocked!

I have registered for the second semester - what happens to the student card?

You have to pay the tuition fees (ÖH amount) every semester. After that you have to activate your student card. (Note: You have already paid for the first semester and activated the card at enrolment).

To activate your student card, you can visit us in the Student Affairs Department at Währingerstraße 25a, 1090 Vienna. Insert your card into the white terminal in the entrance area.
Alternatively, you can also visit the University Library and the ÖH med Wien at the AKH, Währinger Gürtel 18-20, 1090 Vienna (please note the special opening hours).

How can I deregister from the programme?

Write a short email from your student email address and announce that you want to terminate your studies. Alternatively, simply stop paying the ÖH/study fee and you will automatically be exmatriculated.

Can I suspend my studies or take a leave of absence?

It is possible to take a leave of absence, but you may not complete any academic work during the leave of absence. You can find further information here on our homepage. It is not possible to suspend your studies, but you can exmatriculate and re-admit at a later date; your achievements will be retained.

I am studying at another university - how can I transfer to MUW?

You have to go through the normal admission process. If you have already paid the ÖH fee at another university, you do not have to pay it again with us.
