What is Orientation Week?

Orientation week is our chance to welcome new students to campus! It’s also an important part of your university onboarding experience. Here you will learn the essentials of campus life, register for your courses, learn about the various services MU offers, but you will also get to know your new classmates and learn to feel at home in the campus community. 


During the mandatory Orientation, you'll attend various sessions covering academic success, course registration, student support, and your well-being at Modul University Vienna. It's an opportunity to meet faculty, staff, and your fellow students, and you'll also have fun participating in social events that help you make new friends. 

Attending Orientation is mandatory for all new students. It's a fantastic chance to familiarize yourself with the university, the beautiful city of Vienna, and, most importantly, your fellow students, staff, and faculty. The week is packed with informative sessions and enjoyable events.

Be sure to bring original copies of:  

  • Your passport 

  • Your High School Leaving Certificate 

  • Proof of proficiency in English (if necessary) 

  • Your social security number (Austrian citizens only) 

  • Your postal address in Vienna 

  • 20 EUR for your Student ID card  

  • You may also want to bring: 

  • Extra cash for orientation evening events 

  • Extra cash for the MU shop

Fall Orientation is held in September. Spring Orientation is held in February. The week of orientation will be communicated at the time of acceptance, or you can check our calendar.

We prepare a range of activities, presentations, and informative sessions during Orientation. You will receive a program to follow according to the program you are entering. 

You can expect to receive your ID and study confirmation documents during orientation week. Please pay attention to your personal and student email accounts prior to orientation for special instructions to ensure timely issuance of these documents.

Yes, we do! The buddy program is designed to help support new students and soften the start of the semester by having a student ‘mentor’.

You can find out more information by contacting Student Service Center.
