Medical University of Innsbruck

Master's Programmes



The Jesuits established a grammar school in Innsbruck as early as 1562. These were the foundations of the University that was inaugurated by Emperor Leopold I on 15 October 1669 (thus the name ‘Leopold-Franzens University’). A special tax was levied on salt from Hall – the ‘Hall salt levy’ – to secure funding. 


Acquisition of external funding for research projects is a key priority for the Medical University of Innsbruck and an essential requirement for high-quality research at our university. The Service Center Research supports scientists at MUI in the following areas:

  • Selecting the most suitable funding instrument
  • Provision of the relevant documents and submissions
  • Support in the submission process
  • Proposal checks

The programme is very diverse and offers insights into different topics. It offers a lot of hands-on training in terms of wet-lab work. Its organization could be improved.
