ERASMUS Staff Mobility

Participants of ERAMSUS Staff Exchange are welcome. The option exists to apply to any institution of the employee’s choice within the ERASMUS exchange programme within the range of minimum of 2 days and maximum of 2 months per stay.

As ERASMUS Staff Mobility is spent at individual departments of interest we cannot process your application before you have submitted the duly signed acceptance by the respective department.

Not till then can your application be confirmed by signing the required ERASMUS documents certified by the International Office forStudent & Staff Affairs of the Medical University of Vienna.

MedUni Vienna will provide you with support where possible, but cannot organise your individual placement. This requires personal initiative.
