A double degree is a degree of two higher institutions that allows students of both partner universities (home and host institution) to gain international experience while at the same time producing a second degree. In a double degree program, the precise procedure of the studies and the reciprocal recognition of lectures are contractually stipulated.

The UAS Technikum Wien currently offers the following four programs:

Further information to each Double Degree will be provided at the degree program respectively. 

Summer schools are offered for shorter periods abroad during the summer months. If a semester abroad is not possible for you – for example due to your work situation – summer schools in the various countries offer the possibility to gain valuable experience abroad.

The UAS Technikum Wien offers these summer schools and constantly updates the offers on the CIS platform (Internationalization > Outgoings > Summer Schools). The application deadlines comply with the individual announcements. 

Students at UAS Technikum Wien have to do an internship. These internships (they are also called  traineeships) can be done abroad at enterprises, universities or other institutions. Most of UAS Technikum Wien´s study programs maintain a pool of contacts to support the students in finding a suitable traineeship. The partner universities can be found on the U A S Technikum Wien homepage.  

The EU – programme Erasmus+ offers financial support to undergraduate and graduate students who do a traineeship abroad in one of the Erasmus+ programme countries ( all EU memberstates, Iceland, Turkey, Norway, Liechtenstein, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia). For further information on Erasmus+ funding for traineeships abroad please contact the Center for International Relations.

University places for students are available at post-secondary institutions that have signed an agreement with UAS Technikum Wien. Generally, the accreditation standards set by the ECTS system apply. 

  • European destinations: mobility programs such as ERASMUS+ or CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies)
  • Outside of Europe: choose partner institutions at one of UAS Technikum Wien’s partner institutions worldwide, eg. in Argentina, China or the US

  • applying for a study place at an institution (which usually involves paying tuition fees) with the help of the Center for International Relations
  • obtaining information about the degree programs and courses offered and for registering at the host institution themselves
