UniWien & MedUniWien


As a PhD student within the DK RNA Biology you register for the study programme Molecular Biology either with the University of Vienna (Universität Wien, UniWien) or the Medical University of Vienna (Medizinische Universität Wien, MedUniWien), depending on the affiliation of your group leader.

The university year is divided in 2 semesters:

Winter semester (1st October – 31st January)
Summer semester (1st March – 30th June).

You need to be registered with the university for at least 6 semesters (3 years) to submit and defend your PhD thesis.




As soon as you’ve arranged the starting date with your group leader please contact the DK RNA Biology’s programme manager who will check the exact procedures for you and guide you through the registration process.
