Medical University of Vienna

Address: Spitalgasse 23, 1090 Wien,

Description Medical University of Vienna

The Vienna Medical University is Austria's largest, most prestigious and respected medical university, offering both basic higher education programs (bachelor's degree) and postgraduate programs (master's and doctoral studies). Today, the number of students reaches 8500 people: Austrian citizens and international students can study here, 4,500 people study on doctoral programs. The total number of branches is 14.

The University was founded in 1365 as a faculty of the Vienna State University and quickly won recognition and respect throughout the world. By the beginning of the 15th century, the establishment became so popular and prestigious that the doctors of Bavaria and Austria had to get permission here to open their own private practice. From 1902 to 1938, the legendary psychiatrist Sigmund Freud worked here. In 2004, the Faculty of Medicine became an independent institution of higher education and received the prestigious status of the University.

Today, the VMU conducts active research and work in different fields:

  • Allergology;
  • Oncology;
  • Neurosurgery;
  • Transplantology;
  • Intensive care;
  • Owns 12 studying clinics.

Graduates can easily find a prestigious job in their specialty, enter any chosen residency and conduct an active practice in all European countries. Many students receive permanent residence and remain in Austria for many years. Currently, the university adheres to the policy of the most relevant and practical education - this principle is the basis of all educational programs and degrees (this was facilitated by the adoption of the Bologna educational system). Largely due to this, the institution is extremely attractive for foreign students: according to statistics, Austrian students are significantly fewer here than representatives of other countries of the world (especially many coming from Germany and Switzerland).

The university is famous for its highly professional teaching staff: it employs more than 1000 teachers, most of whom are well-known and recognized specialists, practicing doctors of the highest qualification.

The big plus is the cost of education: it is much lower than in similar institutions in the UK or Switzerland, while the level of education and academic studying is not inferior. An additional advantage is a fixed number of places for students from the CIS countries and the third world, which eliminates the competition between Russian and European students, provides an opportunity to enter without a fight for one academic place.
