Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility

Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility offers a small number of substantial mobility grants for designated partner universities on both bachelor’s and master’s levels.

General information

  • If you have applied for a semester abroad (see Dates and Deadlines) and have been successfully ranked, you will receive an Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility grant (depending on availability). The grant will be awarded to those who were ranked highest and applied to the universities listed below (see Available exchange places).

  • Should you have been awarded a WU mobility grant special support already, you will be given priority in the allocation of the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility grant on the basis of your need. Instead of the special support, you will be awarded the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility grant, as it is endowed with a higher amount.

Prerequisites & Requirements

  • You are a regular WU student and have been successfully nominated for a semester abroad at an Erasmus+ partner university. All students who are nominated and follow the steps below will receive the Erasmus+ grant.

  • You will continue to pay the ÖH fee at WU during your stay abroad.

  • The stay lasts at least two whole months (60 days) up to a maximum of 12 months

  • It is a physical stay at the location of the host institution. You can take face-to-face and/or virtual courses in the host country.  

  • The grant is linked to proof of academic achievement. The stay abroad should not lead to a loss of study time ("no loss of progress" principle), therefore students should complete courses amounting to 30 ECTS credits per semester.

    Courses taken abroad have to be recognized for your WU degree.

    Regardless of the "no loss of progress" principle, students must provide at least 3 ECTS credits per month and/or confirmation from the supervisor of the bachelor's, master's or doctoral thesis (if applicable).
