|Areas of study open to exchange students|
Exchange students are required to select courses in the field of study at their home university.
Depending on the language of instruction (English or German), exchange students are required to have an advanced level of English or German (comparable to level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference), to be able to successfully complete courses at WU. WU does not require official language certificates as we trust our partners to send students who fulfil the aforementioned criteria. However, if students do not meet the language requirements, we reserve us the right to withdraw them from courses.
Our English course options for exchange students include more than 200 high-quality courses offered every term in a broad variety of business fields. A wide range of courses are taught in a block format, which contributes to increased flexibility in scheduling courses by exchange students.
Students are responsible to organise the accommodation for their stay in Vienna.
