Erasmus+ Student Exchange

The Erasmus+ Programme is the action scheme of the European Union to support cooperation and mobility in education. The University of Vienna currently has bilateral agreements with about 370 European universities and can offer students around 2,800 Erasmus+ spots to study at these European partner universities.

What does the Erasmus+ programme offer? Participating students benefit from a simplified enrolment process at the host university, they receive a mobility grant and are exempt from tuition fees. The courses that are completed abroad can be recognised by the University of Vienna with the agreement of the directorate of studies ("Studienprogrammleitung").


Stays abroad and Covid-19

Starting from 1 June 2021, students are able to go abroad even if there is a Covid-19 related travel warning for the respective host country (security levels 5 & 6 according to the BMEIA).

The International Office will inform nominated students about the details of the current regulations.
