Universität Salzburg is an exchange destination for Utrecht University Bachelor and Master students of the faculty of Humanities in Salzburg, Austria.

"Salzburg is small (especially in comparison with Vienna, or even with Utrecht), but there is a lot of tourism going on in the area, so there are many things for you to undertake in the surroundings of Salzburg." - experience from a former exchange student 

Student experiences
Academic calendar

Semester I (Winter Semester): October - January
Semester II (Summer Semester): March - June

Plan to arrive one or two weeks in advance, because the enrolment process will take some time. Introductory courses and events (e.g. preparatory German classes, Orientation Week) will also be offered at the beginning of the semester.

Academic Calendar


Language requirement: a minimum language level of B2 (CEFR) in German/English is required.
