Mobility in the Teacher Training Programme

  What can I gain from a study period abroad?

  • a broader horizon – in your specialist field and in your personal life
  • a new international circle of friends
  • new perspectives on and insights into your subject
  • better general and subject-specific language skills
  • a knowledge and understanding of other educational systems
  • greater independence and self-confidence
  • opportunities for self-awareness outside your familiar surroundings
  • understanding and appreciation of other lifestyles and languages
  • lots of valuable and positive experiences

Entry requirements

  • At the time of entry you must have completed the first year of your foundation course in the field of study relevant to your Erasmus study period
  • Knowledge of the language of instruction
  • Undertake an online language test before beginning the course and at the end of your period abroad (EN, FR, SP ...)
  • A nomination to your home country is not considered desirable by the European Commission and takes the lowest priority. Putting a distance of at least 200 km (as the crow flies) between you and your home community will ensure that you achieve genuine mobility. Exceptional regulations apply to South Tyroleans
  • Students from abroad must give evidence of a residence in the place of study (area surrounding Innsbruck), as a nomination to the home country is not possible for commuters
