This will be evaluated by the Curriculum Directors and Module Coordinators along with:
- evidence of continued attendance of lectures and seminars
- track record of engagement with lecturers (e.g asking good questions)
- strong examination/course performance
- evidence of additional internships/extracurricular activities that are geared towards a future career in biomedicine.
Requests may be submitted at any time, but please note that recommended scholarships will be awarded on a first-come first-served basis.
2. Application to the International Office
Selected students must apply to the International Office by completing the online application form in Mobility-Online and submitting the required supporting documents six weeks prior to the start of their traineeship:

The Erasmus+ mobility grant is a contribution to your travel and subsistence costs, with the amount of funding determined according to the group of countries. Applicable rates can be found here.
The Erasmus+ mobility grant can be received in addition to any salary to be paid for the traineeship and in addition to federal aid for students (“Studienbeihilfe”).
The Erasmus+ grant is paid after the signing of a grant agreement between the student and MedUni Vienna in two instalments: 70% at the start of the stay and 30% after the stay.
