Extracurricular activities

Daily life at a university involves more than studying, teaching and researching—it includes networking, innovation, creativity and development. Above and beyond studying, our university provides different opportunities for you to gain experience, become involved and shape your individual profile. Innovative student initiatives have always played a large role at Med Uni Graz, and in recent years they have been carried out more frequently. A large number of ideas that started out small still enrich the daily life of students today—and the next project is surely already taking shape in a student's head!

Studierende im Gespräch


ÖH Med Graz—the Austrian National Union of Students—is the legal representative of all students and a corporation under public law. This group of students acts on a voluntary basis to advise and inform their fellow students  on important topics related to studying and is represented on all university committees such as the academic senate, studies commissions, habilitation and appointment commissions as well as other working groups and advisory boards.

Some of our students are very musical. That is why young musicians have been joining forces for many years to enrich campus life with their concerts. The big band, choir and orchestra of ÖH Med Graz and Med Uni Graz regularly meet to pursue their passion alongside their studies. The result can be seen and above all heard: An auditorium that is filled to capacity at every summer and winter concert speaks for itself!

Teddy Bear Hospital was started in order to ease children's fears of doctors, hospital visits and clinical examinations in a playful manner. As they accompany their own stuffed animals, the children look over the shoulders of the Teddy Docs and assist in the treatment of their plush patients. Thanks to the Austrian Medical Students' Association, the Teddy Docs—motivated Med Uni Graz medical students—are on duty every year.

Healthy and motivated through one's studies: That is the goal of the Peer2Peer counseling center at Med Uni Graz. Students receive support quickly and easily, no matter if they are facing difficulties or crises as a result of excessive demands or failures in their studies, dealing with personal problems in private life or illness or even working out solutions and focusing on their personal development. Specially trained students in later semesters (peers) provide advising, accompaniment and mentoring and "help for self-help" to their fellow students during their studies.
