Information for students from the University of Salzburg who are interested in studying abroad: you have three different opportunities to choose from.
You may study abroad through either the
- Erasmus+ Exchange Programme
- University Exchange Programme (Study Abroad) at a Partner University or
- as an Exchange Student in the United States through the International Student Exchange Programmes (ISEP).
Detailed information can be found by clicking on the respective links for these programmes.
Self-organized stay abroad: Students who want to study at a foreign university with which the University of Salzburg does not have a cooperation agreement or who have not received a scholarship elsewhere must take care of all the arrangements for application, financing, accommodation, etc. themselves. The International Relations Office can only provide limited assistance in these cases.
As a rule, students who spend an exchange semester or year abroad as part of a transnational EU, state or university mobility program will have their tuition fees waived for the period of study abroad at both the home and host universities.
If you would have to pay the tuition fees at the University of Salzburg and your stay abroad takes place during the semester or parts of it (min. 1 month), you can apply for the waiver of the tuition fee for mobility programs at the Office of International Relations until the end of the enrollment grace period of the respective semester at the latest.
This exemption from tuition fees is only valid for the time of the stay abroad.
After completion of the minimum period of study + 2 tolerance semesters, tuition fees must be paid.
A stay abroad completed within this period does not lead to a later exemption from tuition fees.
For students who already receive Austrian “Studienbeihilfe”/study scholarship an extension of the tolerance semesters can be applied for under certain conditions and with timely notification. The contact person for this is the Stipendienstelle/Scholarship Office
Attention: the ÖH-fee must be paid in spite of the waiver of the tuition fee!
If you are doing a self-organized stay abroad, the tuition fees at the host university usually have to be paid in full by the student.
