The International Office coordinates all international relations within the framework of the worldwide partner university network. In implementing the Erasmus+ programme, we as a university respect the EU values of human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities, in full compliance with the values and rights enshrined in the EU Treaties and the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.
We offer support in the following areas:
We support 200 incoming and outgoing students per year at bachelor and master level and advise them individually in all matters concerning semesters abroad, internships abroad, Erasmus+ and Summer School.
We encourage our university staff to take up teaching opportunities at partner universities and avail themselves of mobility for further education purposes at our partner universities as part of the Erasmus+ programme. At the same time, international teachers and researchers enrich the learning opportunities for our students and open up new perspectives through mutual exchange.
The EU programme Erasmus+ provides financial and organisational support to our students and staff during their stays abroad in Europe (also outside Europe for specific projects). Our institution is the sponsor of the "Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2021-2027" and publishes the Erasmus Policy Statement as an integral part of the internationalisation strategy.
Each semester we welcome approximately 40 - 50 guest students from our partner universities at our University of Applied Sciences. In order to guarantee a smooth start at our university and in Wiener Neustadt, our regular students (buddies) support the International Office by taking care of our incomings on a voluntary basis.
