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").

Information on

Winter Semester 2020/21

Although the International Office is currently making all the necessary preparations for the implementation of mobilities in the winter semester 2020/21, we should all be aware that, given the current situation, mobilities cannot be guaranteed, as the situation may change at short notice.

We therefore recommend that you consider the possibility to postpone your stay until the summer semester 2021. If a postponement is not possible, we ask students to refrain from financial obligations as far as possible.

The International Office closely monitors developments and recommendations, and follows the travel warnings of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (in German). The University of Vienna therefore reserves the right to withdraw nominations in regions with a high security risk, even at a short notice, and to block spots. In any case, stays in countries with a high security risk (level 5-6) are not possible.

Summer Semester 2021

Although the International Office is currently making all the necessary preparations for the implementation of mobilities in the summer semester 2021, we should all be aware that, given the current situation, mobilities cannot be guaranteed, as the situation may change at short notice. Therefore, it is also recommended to refrain from financial commitments as long as possible.

The International Office closely monitors developments and recommendations, and follows the travel warnings of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (in German). The University of Vienna reserves the right to withdraw nominations in regions with a high security risk, even at a short notice, and to block Erasmus+ spots, if necessary. In any case, stays in countries with a high security risk (level 5-6) are not possible.

Please note that it is unfortunately not possible to defer an Erasmus+ stay to the next academic year 2021/22. However, students are welcome to re-apply for an Erasmus+ spot during the main application round for the academic year 2021/22. It is important to observe the application deadline and to check in good time whether there is an earlier deadline set by students’ department as an application for an Erasmus+ spot can only be submitted via Mobility Online within the respective application period.
