Incoming Students


If you are interested in an study exchange at our university, you have first to contact your exchange coordinator at your home institution to express your interest in studying at the Kunstuniversität Linz.

If your home institution has an exange agreement with our institution, you are welcome to participate in the exchange program.

The University of Arts Linz welcomes students with special needs. Incoming students with physical, mental or health disabilities have access to the same support services and facilities that are offered to all other students. If there is information about special needs known to the sending institution, it should be provided to our International Office. This is meant to make all the relevant preparation before students' arrival, and assist the students during the exchange period.

Incoming students are advised that additional financial Erasmus+ funding or any inclusion funding must be applied for at their home university.

Further information:

A sufficient level of German language is strongly recommended as lectures are usually held in German. Some classes are held in English and is it also possible to meet teachers for individual meetings in English. We offer German classes during the semester (free of charge). At least we expect a profound knowledge of English language from the students.

We invite our exchange students to an orientation day at the beginning of each semester. The students will receive an inviation by email in time.
