Studying Abroad (Outgoing Exchanges)

Completing part of the English and American Studies programme abroad is probably the goal of the majority of our students. However, the number of affordable study places is limited, since universities in Great Britain, North America, Australia and other English-speaking countries charge high tuition fees, which cannot easily be negotiated away.
Study fees are waived under the Erasmus+ and the Non-EU exchange schemes.

Both Erasmus+ and Non-EU are administrated by the International Office of the University of Vienna. While Non-EU exchange candidates are selected by interdisciplinary multi-faculty committees, Erasmus candidates are selected at departmental level. Departmental mobility coordinators advise students to some extent on both programmes. 

Other possibilities include self-organized Erasmus Internships (Praktika) and, especially for B.Ed. and M.Ed. students, Teaching Assistantships. The Fulbright Program combines Teaching Assistantships with the possibility to attend university courses, among other options.

Both programmes should be seriously considered by students of English. Although they are competitive, a considerable number of students of English has participated in them  in past years.


Non-EU: beginning to mid-November for the following academic year
: from 15th January to 20th February 2024 for both semesters 2024/25 (departmental deadline)
