Joint Study Semester/Year Abroad

JOINT STUDY are bilateral partnerships between two institutions of higher education. The institutions have mutually agreed to the exchange of students and committed to largely waiving the tuition fee for students at the host institution. Each institution has nominated a coordinator who is responsible for selecting and advising outgoing and incoming students. The available offers to study abroad within this program depend on the contracts signed by the university rectorate. Therefore different institutions offer different partners within their Joint-Study programs. Restrictions to the available subjects may also apply. A list of our Joint-Study partners can be found on the left.

Partner institutions

Students from the following institutions are able to apply to study at Med Uni Graz within the framework of the Joint Study-program:

  • Universidad de Guadalajara (Mexico)
  • Universidad do Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)

Please note that only students with sufficient German skills (min. B1) are permitted to study at Med Uni Graz within the framework of this programme.

Students from partner institutions without German skills may apply for the Clinical Rotations Exchange.

Application and Enrollment

In order to study at Med Uni Graz within the Joint-Study Program, students have to be nominated by their home institution. Students will receive information on the necessary documents (application form, required documents) via email. The application package, including a "Learning Agreement" (website available in German only) needs to be submitted on time.
