Our service. Your advantage.
Our International Office is committed to supporting, promoting and celebrating individuals in an intercultural environment. We facilitate international and crosscultural experiences, perspectives and initiatives. Our team serves as first point of contact for all matters with regards to your exchange semester.
We understand that arriving in a new country can be quite exciting! In order to provide a smooth start for our incoming exchange students we offer free airport pick up from Vienna International Airport on the weekend prior to the start of the semester.
You are guaranteed affordable yet high quality accommodation within walking distance of the campus at Ernst Höger Dormitory.
A “Welcome & Orientation” session is held on the first day of the semester. You have the opportunity to meet with an academic advisor and to be introduced to university’s resources and services. You get to know new and current students and learn how to get involved at the university. Orientation is mandatory for all guest students.
Our Buddy Network
consists of a group of volunteering regular students who help you to settle into your new home.
The International Office organises a language & culture course programme exclusively for incoming exchange students (academic credits granted).
- Financially supported excursions
Participate in our excursions programme for guest students, experience Austria’s culture, history and lifestyle and get to know some of our neighbouring countries. Four trips per semester are partly sponsored by our university.
Take part in the sports programme organised by FH Activities.
When your exchange period is coming to an end, it is time to start thinking about things to do before you go back home. The International Office organises an informal farewell get-together to once again meet other exchange students and buddies and get important information you need before you leave.
