Tuition & Scholarships

Study grants and scholarships

Students have the possibility, in accordance with the respective legal provisions, to apply to the relevant authorities (e.g. Stipendienstelle) for state study support or scholarships.

There are various options for students for study grants, scholarships and reductions, which may differ depending on the nationality. Applications for scholarships, for example, can be submitted to the Austrian scholarship office, the German BAföG or the responsible offices in the respective home countries.

Semesters abroad at international partner colleges and universities or internships abroad at international companies and organizations that take place in the course of Erasmus+ are also financially supported by grants from the European Commission. In addition, there are other financial support options for students, such as receiving family allowance, subsidies from AMS or WAFF, as well as discounts for public transportation or various cultural institutions.
