Transfer Credits

Some students come to MU having already attended a tourism/hospitality high school, a tourism/hospitality/business university, or having already completed a tourism/hospitality internship of at least 600 hours. Such students might qualify to have some of their coursework and/or their internship transferred to their curriculum at MODUL University Vienna.

To have previous coursework or an internship transferred for credit, it is important that eligible students apply by pre-determined deadlines to allow enough time for the administration involved. Once an application and corresponding documents have been submitted, the Dean of the Bachelor program will decide if the course/internship can be transferred.
