The internship may only be started after graduation and must be completed 12 months after graduation at the latest.

Since a certain amount of bureaucracy is necessary for the processing of internships, the application must be submitted at least 6 weeks before the completion of the studies.
 

Internships outside ERASMUS+

It is also possible to do internships outside the ERASMUS+ program. If you are accepted, you can apply for the International Exchange Grant (Auslandsstipendium) from the University of Applied Arts Vienna (excl. graduate students). Forms are available at the International Office.
