Semester abroad

Because of the international nature of this sector, having spent a semester abroad is particularly advantageous for our students in their later professional lives. The IT world primarily communicates in English, and for this reason a high degree of language fluency is advantageous. Furthermore, the experience of living abroad is an important factor in personal development. Future employers place great value on a comprehensive education, rounded off by a semester spent abroad. This can often be completed within the framework of educational leave.

How does it work?

Our students have the opportunity to spend their fifth semester abroad. If there are more applicants than places available, our International Coordinator will organise a selection procedure: selection is decided on the basis of grade point averages.

Where possible, the required ECTS are obtained whilst studying abroad. If the partner institution does not offer a comparable course students must take the relevant exam on their return to Graz.

Partner universities

Our partner institutions are hand-picked: we take particular care to see that our students also receive an outstanding education abroad, and we are constantly working to extend our network.
