ERASMUS+ is one of the most successful trans-european education programmes. More than two million students have been supported in organising their study visit.
All students a
t the University of Education Salzburg Stefan Zweig can take advantage of the ERASMUS+ programme from the 3rd semester onwards and complete part of their studies at one of our partner universities abroad.
Duration: ERASMUS+ supports study visits of two to twelve months per study cycle (Bachelor, Master, PhD). Students can combine several stays abroad as long as the total length does not exceed one year. The study period can be started from the 3rd semester at the earliest.
Location: At one of our partner institutions.
Grant (Zuschuss): 390 – 490 euros per month, depending on the host country. Subsidies are also available for students with fewer opportunities and for using environmentally friendly means of transport.
Registration at the International Office of the University of Education Salzburg Stefan Zweig (PH Salzburg): please register for your planned ERASMUS+ stay abroad at the IO (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February for stays during the entire following academic year (winter and summer term). We look forward to receiving your applications!
Language Courses: The European Commission offers online languages courses free of charge.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF AN ERASMUS+ STUDY VISIT?
- No tuition fees (Studiengebühren) at the host university
- Recognition (Anerkennung) of study achievements abroad
- No loss of study time
- Improved language skills
- Intercultural competences
- Contacts to universities all over Europe / worldwide
- New friends all over Europe / worldwide
- Enrolment (Inskription) as a regular student
- Completed first year of study
Basically, an ERASMUS+ study programme means the continuation of the study programme at the PH Salzburg at one of our host universities. The respective contents should be as comparable as possible to those at the PH Salzburg Stefan Zweig. Therefore, it is necessary to discuss the planned study programme abroad with the coordinator for outgoing students in advance.
The International Office and the Rectorate of the University of Education Salzburg Stefan Zweig decide on the final admission to a stay abroad.
After returning from abroad, the study programme actually completed will be recognised according to the credits acquired. The basis for this is the ECTS system introduced throughout Europe.

The European Credit Transfer System, or ECTS for short, is a system for credit transfer. It was developed by the EU in 1995 and is used in exchange programmes where bilateral agreements exist between the partner universities. On this basis, learning agreements are concluded between students, the host university and the home university. The use of a jointly agreed means of assessment, ECTS, as well as comprehensive information about the study programmes offered, is intended to ensure the recognition of academic achievements. The workload for a full academic year is allocated 60 credits.
With the bilateral agreement, the universities undertake to recognise the study achievements agreed in the learning agreement and actually completed abroad. At the end of the stay at the host university, students receive a transcript of records showing the academic achievements.
