Central European University in Vienna and the University of Vienna offer an exchange program for Graduate Students at Masters and Doctoral level, opening the possibility to attend courses for credit or for audit at the partner institution free of charge.
The exchange of students is subject to the approval of the respective Head of Department/Programme, and depends on class capacity.
The two institutions have signed an Agreement for the mutual recognition of final course exams and ECTS Credits. All students will still need to follow their home institutions' policies and practices for the recognition of Credits of completed courses at the partner institution.
Students participating in the exchange are mutually exempt from tuition fees at the host institution.
Austrian Student Union Payment - ÖH Fee:
According to Austrian Higher Education Regulations, Student Union Fee payments are obligatory at each Higher Education Institution in the country where a student has enrolment status as full-time, or visiting student. Despite paying the fee at your home institution, the fee must be paid at the host institution when you enrol in courses for credit. Double payment however means that you will be eligible for reimbursement of the second fee payment from ÖH directly.
