Semester abroad

Future employers are increasingly demanding intercultural skills and international experience. Businesses active in environmental, energy and mobility management are particularly strongly represented in the international market and are looking for cosmopolitan graduates. Therefore we offer our students the opportunity to spend a semester abroad. The benefit to our students lies not only in the intercultural and personal experiences they gain, but our international partner universities usually also offer a variety of specialisations.

How does it work?

You can complete your fourth semester abroad, which will be organised in coordination with the International Office at FH JOANNEUM. Working closely with our partner universities, we compare the contents of the degree programmes so that courses can be credited. You also have the option of writing your Master’s thesis at one of our partner universities.

Partner universities

Our partner universities offer comparable degree programmes and courses run in English. As these programmes cover a similar range of topics, our students will find a sufficient number of suitable courses to allow them to reach the necessary number of ECTS credits. In selecting these partner universities we have also focused on achieving a geographical mix, cultural diversity, and securing partnerships with respected institutions. Our personal contact with the teaching staff at these institutions ensures our students receive optimal supervision.
