Non-EU Student Exchange Program - Incoming Students

Welcome to our website for exchange students from our partner universities outside of Europe!

Students from non-European partner universities are entitled to study at the University of Vienna for one or two semesters under the Non-EU Student Exchange Program, provided the University of Vienna has concluded an exchange agreement with the student's home university and that the student has been nominated by the partner university.

On this website you can find information on how to register at the university and on studying and living in Vienna (see links on the left-hand side).

For information regarding studying with mental health issues and physical impairments please see here.
