Education in Europe and worldwide

The OeAD-GmbH is the central service point for European and international mobility and cooperation programmes in education, science and research. For more than 50 years we have been in dialogue with students, researchers and lecturers as well as with people in school, vocational, adult and higher education. We build bridges between Austrian educational institutions and educational institutions all over the world.

Erasmus+: We educate Europe

The EU programme Erasmus+ Education supports stays abroad and projects for schools and higher education institutions, vocational education and further education as well as adult education. Erasmus+ provides more than 16,000 people from Austria with the opportunity to spend an educational period in within Europe each year. Austria takes part in more than 400 transnational projects each year.

Whom does Erasmus+ Education support

Erasmus+ supports pupils, apprentices, students, graduates, lecturers and teachers and staff. Schools, higher education institutions, vocational education and further education institutions, companies, social partners, authorities, personnel departments, libraries and many more can apply for financial support. Possibilities include vocational internships, studying abroad as well as European-wide further education and teaching possibilities. Project partnerships between institutions are also supported.

The OeAD and its National Agency are in charge of the education part of the programme in Austria – this includes school education, higher education, vocational education and training, adult education and cross-sectional topics in the professional and working world.

International mobility

Apart from Erasmus+ the OeAD also offers students and researchers a broad spectrum of other possibilities for international exchange. The Unit Mobility Programmes, Bilateral and Multilateral Cooperation manages a whole series of outgoing scholarship programmes on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research.
