Study Internationally

Whether it's a semester or internship abroad or studying in English on campus, an IT and media degree program in Hagenberg is the ticket to the big wide world for many and offers the opportunity to get to know other nationalities and cultures.

Hello World, Here We Come!

Studying internationally not only brings contacts and new friends all over the world as well as insights into other cultures, but above all gives you a head start in the competition for the best jobs. Global thinking and knowledge of other cultures are of great importance for the IT and media experts of today and tomorrow. The School of Informatics, Communication and Media offers students many opportunities to gain international experience and strengthen their intercultural skills: through a semester abroad at one of the many partner universities of the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria worldwide, an internship abroad, participation in international events (including on campus), as well as lectures and courses by visiting professors from abroad. Two degree programs in Hagenberg are taught entirely in English. Individual courses are offered in English across the other degree programs in Hagenberg. In addition, there is the possibility of completing a double degree program and thus simultaneously acquiring two academic titles at different universities, one at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria and the second at the partner university.


Studying Abroad

All students at the Hagenberg Campus who decide to spend a semester abroad have around 140 partner universities in 50 countries to choose from. They can choose between various locations in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Oceania. They are supported by the International Office team at the FH Upper Austria Campus Hagenberg.

International Flair on Campus

Around 60 exchange students from a wide variety of countries come to Hagenberg every year to study here for one or two semesters. There are also degree-seeking students from all over the world who complete their entire degree program in Hagenberg. This mix of different cultures and different languages offers the opportunity for intercultural exchange directly on the Hagenberg campus and thus also for those students who do not complete a semester or internship abroad.
