MU Language Program

MODUL University Vienna offers an extensive selection of language courses available to our students.  While taking a language course is not a mandatory component of the study plan, we highly recommend that all students take advantage of the opportunity to study a foreign language.  The language program has been open to all MU students since the Fall 2013/2014 Semester.

1. Course Offer

MODUL University Vienna

Students may enroll in A-level German courses at MODUL University Vienna through the course registration portal.  The credits obtained will be visible on the MU transcript but not considered for the GPA.  MU’s Examination Regulations and Student Code of Conduct apply.  MU reserves the right to offer these levels upon demand.  If a German A-level course is cancelled due to a low registration number or is full due to a high registration number, students may register for an equivalent course at the Sprachenzentrum upon approval of the Academic Office.

Language Partner Institutes

MU has partnered with various language institutes across Vienna to enhance the variety of language courses available for our students.  These partners offer a diverse mix of languages at many levels on different days and times, thus providing maximum flexibility for each student's individual course schedule.  Students may enroll for any language at our partner institutes - German A-level courses are exempt.

Our partners: Sprachenzentrum (University of Vienna), Institut Francais, Latin American Institute, Confucius Institute.


2. Course Registration at Partner Institutes

Students who wish to register for a language course at a partner institute are required to submit the MU Language Program Voucher which can be obtained in the Academic Office (MON-FRI 10-12 & WED 1-4). This voucher shall be submitted no later than two weeks after issue date to the language partner institute. Further information on registration for courses at our partner institutes can be found on the Intranet. Please note:
