Current Information!

Erasmus+ exchange places in the UK

After recent political developments, the UK is expected to leave the EU with an agreement. Legally, the UK will no longer be a member of the European Union after 31 January 2020. However, the agreement on the withdrawal provides for the UK to participate in the Erasmus+ programme in 2020 (including the 2020 round of applications) without any changes.

Student exchange 2020/21

Due to the regulations for the transitional period (currently 31.12.2020), we recommend that students start their Erasmus+ stay in the winter semester 2020/21. As matters stand at the moment (14.01.2020), financing through the Erasmus+ Programme is not guaranteed for the summer semester 2021.

In the event of an exit without an agreement on the withdrawal ("No Deal") learning mobilities implemented on the basis of special agreements may be funded up to 4 months by the University of Vienna. However, it cannot be guaranteed that all nominated students will receive funding! Details about the application process will follow
