Social security agreements exist with many European countries, so there is no need to take out additional insurance. Medical benefits can be claimed with the European insurance card.
In order to be accepted for the Erasmus+ exchange programme, it is necessary to prepare a so-called Learning Agreement (LA) at the International Office of your university. Please contact your Student Mobility Coordination for assistance. The aim is to complete at least 30 ECTS at our university.
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that all courses, in which you are fully enrolled, must be attended (100% attendance). The only exception are lectures where there is no general attendance requirement (Vorlesung = VO). Nevertheless, it is to your advantage to attend these. The International Office of the University of Teacher Education Lower Austria must be informed as soon as possible about difficulties such as illness, accident, travel hindrances, bureaucratic errors or other difficulties.
The ECTS achieved are shown in the Transcript of Records and credited by the home university at the end of the semester abroad.
We invite you to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the University of Teacher Education Lower Austria to introduce you to life and study in Austria. In order to welcome you, informative and appealing cultural and social activities will be organised together with the student council. Upon arrival, you will also be informed about the existing buddy system.
