Academic Information

Courses taught in English are available for exchange students. Since WU doesn't offer many of our core business courses, it is recommended to take these at UT before/after you go. Many courses end prior to June but there are some that end in early to late June; therefore, it is important to be flexible with your courses.

Language(s) of Instruction

English and German


Service Learning/Internship

  • Service Learning - No
  • Internship - No


University housing is available to students. It is highly encouraged that students apply for university housing at the time they apply for admission to WU-Wien exchange/study abroad. Exchange students may also choose to live in apartment-style housing. View the link below to research housing options.
