Erasmus+ Outgoing Studium

Erasmus+ Student Mobility

Studying at the VMI-Vienna Music Institute not only offers the opportunity to develop artistically and professionally in an open and innovative environment, but also enables the acquisition of international and intercultural experience, for example in the form of a study abroad program or an internship abroad.


Why study abroad?

A stay abroad is a special life experience that broadens one's horizons and enriches one personally. A study stay at a VMI partner university opens up the opportunity to develop musically in a different environment, to gain insights into the respective music and culture business and to build international networks. In addition to the exchange of culture and experience and the deepening of language skills, a "semester abroad" also promotes intercultural and social competencies.
