Studying abroad: Tips and compact information

10/12/2018 |

By Ute Wiedner

If you want to plan for a study abroad programme, you can find useful tips or get an overview of all the grants, subsidies and programmes at the Study Abroad Fair on 18th October.

Studying abroad means entering new territory: Study Abroad Fair or the Office of the International Relations and Mobility Programmes can help you find your way.

If you decide to study abroad, in many ways you’ll be entering new territory. The annual ‘Study Abroad Fair’ at TU Graz helps students of TU Graz and – in the framework of NAWI Graz – students of Uni Graz to find their way. But first things first. Staff of the team of the Office of the International Relations and Mobility Programmes of TU Graz know the challenges students face when they want to organise their study stays abroad and give the following general advice.

Plan your study stay abroad

  • Get information about the available choice of mobility programmes.
  • Determine the specific requirements of the chosen programme.
  • Collect the required number of ECTS credits: this depends on the programme. In the case of ISEP or Erasmus+ at least 60 ECTS credits are necessary for the relevant study programme. Whereas for the OverSEAs programme, 90 ECTS credits are required. For the Research Abroad scholarship, a grand total of 180 ECTS credits have to be demonstrated – including a bachelor’s degree.
  • Make sure you have a good Grade Point Average (it helps anyway).
  • No double applications (i.e. don’t apply twice): avoid nominating yourself for several programmes in the same period.

Compact information

Summarised information about all these points and more is available at the Study Abroad Fair at TU Graz’s Campus Inffeldgasse on 18th October. At the fair, interested persons can expect short presentations on mobility programmes as well as information stands manned exclusively by TU Graz staff and students who themselves have studied abroad in the framework of mobility programmes..
