Does your university have an exchange contract with JKU? We are pleased to welcome you as an exchange student at JKU. Study Allowance Abroad: If you receive a scholarship, you must apply separately before the start of your semester or year abroad to receive your study allowance abroad. All Erasmus students must sign the Erasmus agreement with the OeAD (Austrian Agency for International Mobility and Cooperation in Education, Science and Research). Education also means broadening your horizons and learning to think beyond the beaten track. And what could be more beautiful than a semester or a year abroad or cooperation with international partners? JKU and the private Catholic University of Linz have a partnership contract that allows you to take courses at KU Linz as part of their international semester (winter semester only). The following courses are offered during the winter semester 2020/2021: NO partnership agreement between JKU and your home university? Then ask for normal entry. Discover Linz and its surroundings!
