Since a foreign secondment is usually synonymous with additional costs, a variety of grant programmes are available to support students when abroad. In most cases, the International Office of the home university informs students about funding possibilities available to them, and it is that very office that usually handles the application process.
Be sure to find out all you need to know regarding financial support ahead of time before embarking on your work placement abroad!
Below you will find a brief overview of the grant possibilities available to CAMPUS 02 students for their foreign study and placement mobilities:
The EU educational programme ERASMUS+ supports people across Europe looking for promotional higher education study opportunities. This grant programme for foreign study secondments, available in Austria since 1992, provides financial support to around 4,000 Austrian students each year for their undertakings abroad. This enables students not only to enrich the academic aspects of their student life, but also to improve their language, intercultural and social skills whilst becoming more independent.

The EU CEEPUS programme (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies) provides funding for student mobility between the following countries: Albania, Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakian Republic and Slovenia.

The Ernst Mach Grant, available to students from non-European countries studying degree programmes at an Austrian university of applied sciences, can be applied for provided that the applicant’s home university has signed a cooperation agreement with CAMPUS 02. If no such agreement is currently in place, you are advised to contact the International Office at your home university so that they can take the necessary steps.
