Internships abroad

Students can also complete internships abroad as part of their studies. The Erasmus+ grant provides additional financial support for these internships. In addition to financial support for the compulsory internship, financial support is also provided for voluntary internships or graduate internships following the Bachelor's or Master's degree at the UAS Technikum Wien.
