Studying abroad: Tips and Compact Information

Anyone planning to study abroad will find helpful tips here – or gain an initial overview of grants, funding and programmes at the "Study Abroad Fair" on March 17 at TU Graz.

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.

Students who choose to study abroad are entering uncharted territory in many ways, especially under the conditions of a global pandemic. Nevertheless, in the 2020/21 academic year, 114 students of Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) have decided to go abroad for a semester or a whole academic year through a mobility programme.

If you are still unsure or do not know how to put a stay abroad into effect, the annual "Study Abroad Fair" at TU Graz helps students of TU Graz and – in the framework of NAWI Graz – students of the University of Graz to find their way. But first things first: the staff at the International Office – Welcome Center at TU Graz are aware of the challenges students face when planning their stay and generally advise the following preparations:

Plan your study stay abroad – six tips

  • If you are still unsure, benefit from the experiences of others. Stories about this can be found in the "International Blog" of TU Graz.
  • Get information about which mobility programmes are available, for example at the Study Abroad Fair and/or on the website "Studying Abroad".
  • Determine the specific requirements of the chosen programme.
  • Collect the required number of ECTS credits. How many there are depends on the programme.
  • 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 time period.

Compact information

At the Study Abroad Fair of TU Graz, separate units on all mobility programmes are offered in addition to a general presentation of the different mobility programmes. Students also have the opportunity to ask questions of the responsible programme coordinators of the International Office – Welcome Center and to receive individual information about stays abroad.
