On this page you will find information about the requirements for an Erasmus+ student exchange at the University of Vienna:


Within the Erasmus+ programme, students from Erasmus+ partner universities are able to study at the University of Vienna (Erasmus+ Code: A WIEN01) for one or two semesters. The prerequisite for this is that there has to be an Inter-Institutional Agreement (IIA) with the partner university assigned to the relevant field of study and the student must be nominated for an Erasmus+ stay at the University of Vienna by the partner university.

Please keep in mind that at the University of Vienna each Inter-Institutional Agreement is assigned to a specific field of study (and not to an entire faculty). Nominations outside the agreed field of study are not possible. Exception: students of German Studies with a minimum German level of C1 can also be nominated for German Studies via agreements for other language studies.

The nomination is undertaken exclusively via our online nomination system (Mobility Online). The necessary data will be sent to the partner university by e-mail.      

Deadlines for nomination: 1 May for the winter semester, 1 November for the summer semester

After you have been nominated by your home university, you will receive an e-mail with information on the registration procedure. If you have not received this email by 10 May (winter semester) or 10 November (summer semester), please send us an e-mail.

Language Skills

Please be aware that you will need to have appropriate German language skills if you wish to study at the University of Vienna. Most of the courses are held in German.

Exchange students who wish to study at the University of Vienna generally do not need an official language certificate (exception: Translation Studies). However, during the online nomination procedure your home university must confirm that you have sufficient language skills when taking up your studies at the University of Vienna. Every agreement for Erasmus+ student exchanges that we have signed with your home university contains details regarding the recommended language level

Courses taught in English or languages other than German

It is recommended that students who do not have sufficient German skills read up on the exact course offer in other languages in due time.

To find out whether there are enough courses taught in English or in other languages in your field of study, click on your field of study in the course catalogue u:find (for example, Bachelor degree programme Business Administration). Courses which are taught in a language other than German are marked with a blue button indicating the language of instruction.
