Travel expenses/language course subsidy

Depending on the available funds, Med Uni Graz awards grants for language courses and travel expenses. Students applying for a funding of travel and/or language expenses must submit the application form to the International Office (for mobilities in winter semester 2019/20 BEFORE the start of their stay abroad). Submissions after the start of the mobility can no longer be accepted.
