For an Erasmus+ Short Term Mobility and a related Erasmus+ grant, regular students of the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences Vienna can apply, who meet the following requirements:

  • Students of all study levels (Bachelor, Master, PhD), who can only complete a short mobility abroad due to their studies or their job

  • Completion of at least the first year of an undergraduate programme at the time of the Erasmus+ traineeship

  • Completion of a minimum of 20-30 ECTS of BOKU courses (from the same study programme or a BOKU Bachelor).

  • GPA not more than 2.8

  • Proof of language proficiency: at least B2 level

  • Students who have not yet received a full 12 months of ERASMUS+ funding in their current study level. (The duration of the BIP is counted towards the maximum possible 12 ERASMUS+ months).

  • Fulfillment of the conditions of the host institution

Erasmus+ duration of funding

All students can receive an Erasmus+ grant for a period of 12 months in the bachelor's program, 12 months in the master's program and 12 months in the doctoral program, i.e. a total of 36 months. These 12 months can be used - in any combination - for Erasmus+ internships, Erasmus+ study visits and/or Blended Intensive Programs (BIPs). Previously completed Erasmus stays at the same study level will be counted against the 12 months, regardless of the university or whether it is a study or internship stay or short term mobility/BIP. Here you can find our FAQ's.

Leave of absence: It is not possible to apply for a leave of absence at the Student Services, as all Erasmus+ participants must be fully enrolled at BOKU during their stay abroad. However, the tuition fee may be waived if your stay takes place during the semester. The ÖH fee must still be paid. See: Exemption from tuition fees
