Contextual Studies

Students can choose up to 6 ECTS from the contextual studies programme, a module offer for master students and alumni of FHV which provides customized courses as part of the master’s degree programmes.

Students who wish to enrol in contextual studies should be aware that these involve interdisciplinary teamwork with fellow students. Therefore, compulsory attendance for most classes is required.

The following contextual studies courses are avaialbe in English language during spring/summer semester 2025. 

What are Contextual Studies?

German Language and Austrian Culture Courses

These courses are scheduled weekly and run over the full semester. It is only possible to select one German course. 

During spring/summer semester 2025 the German courses are available for all exchange students. Because of scheduling conflicts students attending the Computer Sciences - Digital Innovation Bachelor (IDI) programme cannot chose the German courses. However, alternatively the course Exploring Austrian Culture and Values is open to IDI students. Students from other programmes can only register for Exploring Ausrian Culture and Values based on availability and if there are no timetable conflicts.
