Inviting the world to study with us!

Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FH Vorarlberg) is a part of an international network and cooperates with a large number of partner universities around the world. More than half of all full-time students in the bachelor's degree programme at FH Vorarlberg spend at least one semester in another country. This opportunity offers them the opportunity during their studies to acquire key qualifications that help them to be successful in a global and international job market.

The International Business Administration programme at FH Vorarlberg in particular has a consistent international focus:

  • Compulsory experience abroad:
    • the option of one or more semesters abroad in a country where German is not the official language at one of several partner universities around the world in the fourth or fifth semester
    • and/or an internship in the sixth semester in a country where German is not the official language
  • Sound language instruction through a range of courses offered in English
  • Lecturers from top companies with international contacts
  • Intercultural awareness as a class in the third semester
  • Joint study with guest students from around the globe
  • Summer/winter school opportunities as a "free-mover"

Internship abroad:

Real-world relevance is an important factor in the International Business Administration programme – to help you launch your professional career, a 12-week internship is scheduled for the sixth semester. This can even be completed in another country – planning, application and financial support is your responsibility!

Even if you choose to complete an internship abroad instead of a semester of your programme, you will benefit from the international focus of FH Vorarlberg, as the courses of your specialisation will be conducted in English.

Plan for your stay abroad early! It is crucial for passing the degree programme!
