MORE Initiative of TU Graz

The MORE initiative is a special offer for technically oriented refugees who have not yet applied for admission as a regular international student at TU Graz, but are considering this option for their future.

This initiative at TU Graz is part of the Austria-wide MORE Initiative of the Universities Austria (uniko).

The MORE programme allows asylum seekers and refugees a first insight into TU Graz. The MORE programme serves as an orientation aid and is aimed at all those who have not yet applied for admission to a regular degree programme at TU Graz, but who may wish to register as a regular degree student at a later date. MORE students are enrolled as non-degree students at TU Graz and can take individual courses and examinations.
