Internationalization, in line with increasing demand in business, is of primary importance at the FH Upper Austria. Students who go abroad for a semester or a year do not only learn a lot about other cultures and languages, they also gain self-confidence and independence in their daily organisation of life.

There are four main options for gaining international experience: ·

Some of our degree programs include a semester abroad as part of their standard curriculum, but it is also possible in all other programs. Beyond that, we have agreements with partner universities which sometimes even enable students to obtain an additional academic degree from the partner institution (double degree).

Various funding programs such as Erasmus + and IPS support students financially.
