How to Apply

If you wish to study at the University of Innsbruck as an ERASMUS+ student, please contact the ERASMUS+ coordinator at your home university to find out if a valid agreement exists in your field of study.

After being nominated by your home university’s ERASMUS+ coordinator, please complete and submit the online Application for Admission: http://www.uibk.ac.at/international-relations/erasmus/incoming/application.html

Your application must include our ERASMUS+ Certificate with the official stamp and signature of your home coordinator, a CV, a copy of your passport, and your Learning Agreement.

>>> Please note that the University of Innsbruck does not accept ‘free movers’ (i.e. students that are not part of a specific exchange programme).

 

Accommodation

Housing is a major concern for ERASMUS+ incomings. Accommodation is provided by the OeAD (the Austrian Service Centre for European and International Mobility and Cooperation) for those who apply and send a reservation deposit: http://www.housing.oead.at/ The rooms are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so please apply as early as possible.

WIST (a company that runs student housing in Innsbruck) also offers accommodation: http://wist.at/002/news/index.php

Further information on rooms or apartments for rent can be found at the website of the Austrian Students Union: https://www.oehboersen.at/

Youth hostels are a short-term option: http://www.youth-hostel-innsbruck.at/, http://www.europeanhostels.com/hostels/austria/innsbruck/pension-glockenhaus-weiherburggasse-3-innsbruck-tirol/ and http://www.volkshaus.at/.

Winter semester: 1st October - 31st January

Each ERASMUS+ agreement is supervised by a departmental ERASMUS+ coordinator. Please consult the following list to learn who coordinates your field of study: http://www.uibk.ac.at/international-relations/erasmus/incoming/coordinators.html

The departmental coordinators are responsible for all questions relating to your studies. They are not responsible for admission or accommodation. Please contact the International Relations Office directly if you need help or support.
