The joint study programme is an exchange programme with universities in other countries, most of which are outside the European Union. The bilateral agreements apply to all subjects taught at the University of Klagenfurt and are not restricted to individual degree programmes or faculties.
You apply for a joint study grant and a place at the host university at the same time. These places have a value of between EUR 5000 and EUR 25,000, depending on the host university.
Study period – winter semester: 15th November
Study period – summer semester: 15th June
You must be enrolled as a degree student at the University of Klagenfurt in order to apply for the joint study mobility programme. Unfortunately, it is not possible to consider applications from co-registered students.
At the start of the semester abroad, students must have completed 60 ECTS credits. The programme is aimed solely at degree students at the University of Klagenfurt, who have achieved good to very good academic success on their course to date.
You must upload your application documents to MOBIS by the application deadline.
Once your coordinator has put you forward and you have accepted the place, we recommend that you apply for preliminary recognition of your examinations before you leave for your linked university and obtain confirmation of this from your Programme Director.
Duration and extension of study period
For students, the duration of the study period abroad is one semester. This can only be extended at a small number of universities and only following consultation with the coordinator at the University of Klagenfurt.
The Japanese Universities of Soka in Tokyo and Kansai in Osaka prefer to accept students for an entire academic year.
Selection process and nomination
Students are put forward by the University of Klagenfurt coordinators for the respective linked universities.
Students will receive notification of the outcome of their application within a month of the application deadline.
Students will be registered at the linked universities, which will then contact the students directly regarding the formalities to complete.
The joint study grant will be transferred to the account details provided following submission of your final report and presentation of your certificate of successful course completion from the linked university.
Requirements during your joint study period abroad and after
Within a month of arriving at the linked university, you must email a progress report to the International Office. The report must list the courses that you have registered for (12 ECTS per semester). Students must submit a final written report about their study period (in English or in the language of the country) within a month of completing their study abroad. (See report guidelines at the end of the page).
This should give an overall impression of the period abroad and provide details of the academic benefits and general experiences. The following documents must accompany the report:
