How to proceed?

First of all, you will find out about the possibilities of organising your studies abroad through your home institution.

If your home institution is a partner university of the UAS Technikum Wien, there is a bilateral agreement (e.g. ERASMUS+) between your home institution and the UAS Technikum Wien. You are exempt from tuition fees and have the option of a grant (e.g. Erasmus+) for your semester abroad.


If your home institution is not a partner university of the UAS Technikum Wien, you have the possibility to apply for a semester abroad as a freemover. Freemovers are students who wish to study at the UAS Technikum Wien but whose home institution does not have a bilateral agreement with the UAS Technikum Wien.
