Information subject to change due to the upcoming implementation of the new Erasmus+ programme

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").

Update

Stays abroad from June 2021 on

The regulations for student stays abroad in countries with a Covid-19 related travel warning will be changed. From 1 June 2021, students will be able to go abroad even if there is a Covid-19 related travel warning for the respective country (security levels 5 & 6 according to the BMEIA).

The International Office will inform about details of the new regulation as soon as possible (probably by mid-May). Students who have already been nominated will be contacted directly by the International Office.

Exchange places in the UK in 2021/22

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. Legally, the UK is no longer a member of the European Union. However, the agreement on the withdrawal provides for the UK to participate in the current Erasmus+ programme without any changes. 

Student exchanges in the academic year 2021/22 can still be financed through the Erasmus+ Programme. Extensions are not possible.

Please inform yourself about the entry and residence regulations.
