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.

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.
