- Get information from your Departmental International Coordinator about the possibility of applying for the Erasmus+ grant for your traineeship abroad.
- Fill in the Erasmus+ Traineeship Application Form and get it signed by your Head of Study Programme. Hand it in at your Departmental International Coordinator.
- Then you will receive the form Erasmus+ Learning Agreement that has to be filled in and signed by yourself, the receiving organisation/enterprise and the Head of Study Programme.
- Submit the Learning Agreement together with the insurance confirmation for health, accident and third-party liability insurance and your bank details at the International Office:

- Accident & third party liability insurance: with the ÖH [Austrian national student union] tuition fee – for a written confirmation, please email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Bank details: it has to be your own bank account (not the one of your parents), preferably an Austrian bank account. Foreign bank accounts are possible too but you have to pay bank charges.
- Then the International Office will nominate you in the Erasmus+ database for grants from the OEAD/Austrian Exchange Service, which issues the grants.
- You will receive a nomination email with a link & password to register via Students Online. After you filled in all necessary data correctly, your nomination will be reviewed. In case that you will be awarded the grant, a “Zuerkennungsmail = confirmation email” will be sent to you.
- An online language assessment before and after the mobility is mandatory for all students (Erasmus+ Online Linguistic Support), in addition, licenses for online language training courses in the mobility language or the language of the host country are available at the IO.
