English Course Offerings


During the spring/summer term the 4th semester (30 ECTS) of the Social Work bachelor degree programme is taught in English.

The spring/summer program “International Social Work” focuses on key aspects of social work practice which include intercultural dialogue, gender related issues, human rights and European and international social work. International and European social work approaches and strategies are steadily gaining ground throughout European Union member states. These conceptual frameworks are also implemented effectively at the national and global levels.


Get a glimpse into these current and future trends by crossing the border of your own country to explore these innovative approaches. Our courses are intended to provide you with an enriched cultural and social experience in Austria.


Requirements for Visiting Students


Basic knowledge of social work (or related programs such as social pedagogy) is a prerequisite for exchange students wanting to enroll in the social work courses taught in English. You should be familiar especially with principles, theories and methods of social work and social services.
