With its approximately 5,000 students, the Faculty of Law of the University of Graz is the second largest law faculty in Austria. Its history goes back to 1778 when it was established as the third faculty of the University of Graz, which itself was founded in 1585.
Students, instructors and staff learn and work together according to the principles of the biopsychosocial model, which places the person with all his or her needs at the centre of attention. In parallel with the training of future doctors and nurses, and research into innovative treatment methods and health-preserving measures, the health university provides high-level patient care. Not only do students gain from expert knowledge, so does the whole population. Both young and old can take advantage of this great range of knowledge in the context of media coverage, talks and a great number of events.
New findings regarding the causes of disease, development of preventive measures and working out new treatments are a mark of the success of medical research in Graz.
Scientists and academics are supported during all the phases of their careers by the University.
The Organisational unit for Teaching and Studies offers students of Med Uni Graz an extensive range of services and at the same time forms the main contact point for supporting students in all matters relating to their studies.
Participants are requested to make their own hotel reservations. The Course Secretariat will offer assistance and relevant information material on all practical matters. Graz, capital of the province of Styria, is Austria's second largest city. The Old Town of Graz is one of the best preserved in Europe and was awarded World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 1999.
The University Library at the Centre for Medical Research is not just a typical library with the usual resources; instead the rooms and facilities require a much broader definition of the library as a place. Workstations in the conventional sense alternate with comfortable reading zones; small seminar rooms fitted out with modern presentation technology offer place for group-oriented learning.
The new construction of the MED CAMPUS in Graz-Ries is the fourth university location in Graz. The Medical University facilities which have up to now been spread all over the city are now being brought together not far from University Hospital Graz.
