Ukraine special exchange program

Due to the positive response and success of the special exchange program, WU has decided to extend the program for the upcoming academic year 2024/25. This will provide additional opportunities for students from selected Ukrainian universities and individual applicants to experience studying at the Vienna University of Economics and Business.The application period for winter semester 2024/2025 has already closed. You can apply for summer semester 2025 from October 15, 2024 to October 31,2024.

In order to support Ukrainian Higher Education Institutions and its students in the current war situation, WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) launched a special exchange program in the academic year 2022/23.

The main idea is to not only support academic progress of students affected by war but also avoid brain drain since students will be able to continue and complete their studies in Ukraine. Nominated students for the special exchange program will be able to attend regular courses at WU and obtain credits which shall count towards studies at their home university. At WU numerous courses are offered in English, covering almost all core areas of economics. In addition to completing courses in English, participating students can also demonstrate experience abroad, which of course represents a significant improvement for their chances on the job market.

This special exchange program is made possible thanks to the general support of WU's partners. Thank you!
