Erasmus+ and studying abroad


Welcome to the Erasmus webpage of the Department of Prehistoric and Historical Archaeology!

The University of Vienna offers a wide range of opportunities for study and internship abroad but also for teaching stays abroad (for the latter see here). The information on this webpage refers to stays abroad of students and especially to study visits within the Erasmus+ programme.

What exchange programmes are there?

Erasmus+ is an exchange programme of the EU and offers study stays at European and occasionally also non-European partner universities, but also promotes traineeships in the EU. You can find out more about Erasmus+ study places in prehistory and historical archaeology below.

There are now also Summer Schools within the framework of the European University Alliance Circle U., which can be funded by Erasmus+. For more information see here.

For those who want to study outside Europe, the Non-EU Student Exchange Programme offers study opportunities with over 60 partner universities. For research stays to work on theses/dissertations, there are also scholarships within the framework of the KWA programme. All information on the programmes and other offers can be found on this website.
