Internationalization is a top priority at Campus Wels!

The FH Upper Austria has numerous partner universities. A semester abroad is specifically promoted and can take students around the world: from South America to Scandinavia and Asia.

Gain international experience

A stay abroad during your studies not only provides international contacts and intercultural insights, but above all gives you a head start in the competition for the best jobs.

There are currently 450 students (including regular international students) from abroad studying at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria: that's around one in six students. And of course you can feel this in every lecture and on campus. This is where the world meets and students can make international contacts without having to pack a suitcase.

English taught degree programs

Our 7 English-language degree courses not only offer the opportunity to study internationally. Of course, these courses are also used by many students from abroad - because the good reputation of our courses extends far beyond their borders.

Double Degree

Two degrees and therefore two titles? Yes, that is possible. The second degree is obtained at one of our international partner universities. Students at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria study at our university and at the partner university in the same or a similar subject area. The courses are mutually recognized in a very unbureaucratic way. And the effort - yes, it's no pony farm - is rewarded with two separate academic degrees.
