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.
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 weighted average grade. 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.
Our partners are:
- Sprachenzentrum (University of Vienna), Alser Straße 4, 1090 Vienna
