Outgoing Students

Do you want to broaden your horizons, get to know people and cultures in other countries, deepen your knowledge and improve your language skills? Then seize the opportunity for a stay abroad! The possibilities range from a semester abroad to a professional or graduate internship, all the way to participations in International Weeks. 

The staff of the International Office and the International Coordinators of the degree programs will be happy to advise you on the type of stay abroad that is best suited for you.

Apply for a placement at one of our partner universities or organize your stay at a university of your choice as a Freemover. Depending on the country you choose, you have the option to apply for funding from ERASMUS+, the Swiss European Mobility Program (SEMP), the Marshall Plan Foundation or for the FH Campus Wien Freemover grant MOVE. The prerequisite for receiving funding is that the ECTS earned abroad are credited towards your education at your home university.

The internships of the degree programs are suitable for gaining work experience abroad. You apply to a potential internship yourself. Visit the Student Portal for tips on searching for an internship. For several degree programs, internships can also be arranged through partner universities. Furthermore, students of Social Work and Health Sciences have the opportunity to complete an internship in Africa, Asia and Latin America through the Austrian Development Agency (ADA).

For stays of more than 2 months, you can apply for funding from ERASMUS+, the Swiss European Mobility Program (SEMP), the Marshall Plan Foundation or for the FH Campus Wien Freemover grant MOVE.

Take advantage of the graduate program of ERASMUS+ and do an internship abroad in the first year after your graduation. The internship must be related to the subject you have studied and should help to prepare you for your entry into the professional world. To receive funding for the graduate internship, you must apply to the International Office before completing your studies.

Take the opportunity to attend International Weeks at our partner universities. Information about upcoming events can be obtained from the degree programs and the International Office.

The INUAS Network regularly organizes Winter and Summer Schools in Zurich and Munich. Selection and registration takes place through the degree programs and the selected students receive a grant from FH Campus Wien as support.

The master’s degree program Social Economy and Social Work concludes with a joint degree from six European universities. A several-week obligatory study visit to one of the partner universities serves to broaden the students’ subject-specific, language and intercultural competences.

In the bachelor's degree program Occupational Therapy, students can take part in the "FAB-ulous" semester. The courses of the 6th semester are completed in Finland, Belgium and Austria. Students also have the opportunity to earn a double degree. For the internship, which is part of the semester, students can apply for an ERASMUS+ grant.

COVID-19 Infobox - Stays abroad

In this section, we will keep you informed about current developments and the possibilities to go abroad in times of Covid-19.

Yes, our University of Applied Sciences has decided to support mobility in the academic year 2021/22. Application phases for stays abroad and nominations are carried out as announced on our website.

When planning stays abroad, please consider the travel warnings of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Wait with booking accommodations and flights as long as possible, and book only with cancellation option, since our partner universities might cancel planned stays abroad if new restrictions are introduced. Furthermore, inform yourself before you leave about the current Covid-19 situation and regulations in your host country and obey the local rules.

The ERASMUS+ program has also collected important information about mobilities in the context of Covid-19 on their website. If you have questions, please contact the International Office.

If you no longer feel safe abroad, you can cancel your stay abroad and return home. However, it is important that you immediately contact and inform all involved parties about your decision (i.e. the international coordinators, the host university or internship placement, and the International Office).
For ERASMUS+ students, in case of a deterioration of the situation in the host country, the “force majeure” rule applies (for further information, click here). Students, who are abroad as freemovers or with other scholarships, please contact the International Office.

Please inform yourself about current regulations when entering Austria on the website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. If symptoms occur, contact the Health Advice Hotline 1450 for further advice. For general information, call the hotline 0800 555 621 and inform your degree program or your superior by e-mail or telephone about a possible absence.
After your return, please submit the final documents to your sponsor and the International Office. ERASMUS+ students can find the current regulations on the website of the ÖAD.

Funding Programs

Erasmus Logo

The European Union's ERASMUS+ program offers funding for studying abroad, traineeships and traineeships for recent graduates in program countries (EU27, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, North Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey) and in partner countries (worldwide) (PDF 57,7 KB)).

Studying abroad with ERASMUS+ is possible at a partner university of your degree program. The prerequisites for receiving funding are:

  • The duration of the stay abroad is for at least two months up to a maximum of 12 months
  • The courses attended can be credited towards your education at your home university (the recommendation is 30 ECTS per semester)

ERASMUS+ traineeship and traineeships for recent graduates can be completed at both public and private companies. The following conditions apply:

  • The duration of the stay abroad is for at least 2 months up to a maximum of 12 months
  • Approval of the traineeship by the degree program
  • For traineeships for recent graduates: Application before graduation and completion of the traineeship within 12 months after graduation

 

Selection criteria for Erasmus+ funding:

In order to receive an Erasmus+ grant, it is necessary for students to submit their complete application in time at the International Office.

The selection process comprises two steps:

  • Approval of the application for a stay abroad by the International Coordinator of the study program: Decision, whether the student fulfils the requirements and allocation to the partner institution based on the number of available places
  • Decision, whether a student is eligible for funding subject to available budgetary resources

For both decisions, the following criteria are considered:

  • Letter of motivation: statement of motivation for a stay abroad, personal added value and added value for the study/professional field, expectations, the country and the partner university or traineeship location
  • Curriculum vitae: previous internships, involvement in social or university activities (e.g.: Buddy activity within the study program, at the ÖH, in the International Office, etc.)
  • Academic success and study history: Grade point average from the last two semesters; higher semesters or Master's students in their final year are given preference in the application
  • Language skills (language of instruction and/or national language)

 

Erasmus+ mobilities to partner countries

In the Erasmus+ program period 2021-27, the UAS Campus Vienna can also finance a small number of student and traineeship mobilities to partner countries (i.e. countries outside the EU27 + Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Serbia, North Macedonia and Turkey), depending on the available budgetary resources. Since funding is limited, in addition to the timely and complete submission of the application documents to the International Office and the approval of the stay abroad by the department, the following selection criteria are considered in the following order:

  • Overall grade point average at the time of application (at least 2.0)
  • The letter of motivation must clearly explain how the stay abroad will contribute to the student’s professional and personal development and will be evaluated by the International Office and the study program
  • Timing of the stay abroad within the curriculum (higher semesters are given priority, stays by Master's students in their final year are given preference)
  • Student stays that serve the long-term consolidation of our network are given priority over internship stays
  • Paid traineeships are not supported
  • Traineeships for recent graduates in partner countries or in Switzerland and the UK after 31 May 2023 will only be funded if there are sufficient budgetary resources
  • Applications without a fixed traineeship position will be ranked lower and can only be considered if funds are available
  • There is a maximum of two places per academic year for Switzerland or the United Kingdom. Mobilities to Switzerland should therefore, if possible, be carried out via the SEMP (Swiss European Mobility Programme)

Note United Kingdom:
Until 31 May 2023, stays in the United Kingdom will be funded via the Erasmus+ Program 2014-2020 as long as sufficient funding is available.

 

ERASMUS+ Special grant for applicants with children, disability or chronic illness

ERASMUS+ additionally supports students with children and students with disabilities or chronic illnesses with a special subsidy for stays abroad. Contact the Austrian National Agency (OeAD) or the International Office for further information on applying for a special subsidy.

The Marshall Plan Foundation supports research stays at universities in the United States for students of engineering and natural sciences. In order to receive a scholarship, a research proposal and application must be submitted through the International Office. Stays of 90 days and up to 12 months are eligible for funding. The research position at a US university has to be organized by the students themselves. Any tuition fees are to be paid by the student.

Contact the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation or the International Office for further information about the scholarship.

Students of degree programs with a Swiss partner university can study for one semester or complete an internship in Switzerland. The minimum stay is two months for an internship and three months for studying abroad. Funding can be obtained for a maximum of 12 months. The partner universities decide whether or not you will be admitted into the program.

Freemover students can apply for the FH Campus Wien grant MOVE. The grant is awarded to those students and countries for which there are no other funding opportunities. The following prerequisites must be met to receive a MOVE grant:

  • The duration of the stay is at least two months (internship) or three months (studying abroad) up to 12 months
  • The completed courses or internship can be credited towards your education at your home university.

Beneficiaries of a federal aid or a scholarship for self-supporting students can apply to the Austrian Study Grant Authority for an additional grant for a scholarship abroad. The application is obligatory for beneficiaries when applying for the ERASMUS+ program. For more information on applying for this scholarship, please contact the Austrian Study Grant Authority.

Several federal provinces also offer financial support for students for a stay abroad. Examples include the TOP Scholarship of the Province of Lower Austria, the Vorarlberg Scholarship and the Gusenbauer Scholarship in Carinthia. Please check the websites of the individual provinces for further information.

The Austrian Database for Scholarships and Research Grants offers the most comprehensive overview of funding opportunities. The database lists funding at national, European and international levels.

Internship at the renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Florian Kabinger completed the English Master program Molecular Biotechnology in 2020.
