more information about language requirements

Please be aware that you will need to be able to understand, speak and write German at least at an adequate level if you wish to study at the University of Vienna. With the exception of only certain fields of study, the courses are held in German.

Exchange students who find a sufficient amount of English courses in their field of study may basically study at the University of Vienna even without any knowledge of German. To prevent misunderstandings please discuss this option with your departmental coordinator. However, we strongly recommend at least basic German skills in order to find your way around in Vienna.

Areas of study open for exchange students

On a general note, our Erasmus+ incoming students are expected to mostly pick courses within the field of study they've been nominated and accepted in. If they are interested in taking courses at other departments, they can find out about their options:
1) on our website
2) on the Erasmus incoming website of the department in question
3) by discussing their course selection with the departmental coordinator(s) of the other field(s) of study
