Subject-related study periods abroad and postgraduate studies constitute an important link between the degree programme completed in one’s home country and a qualitative start of a professional career or continuation of one’s career worldwide. They provide new possibilities to gain subject-specific knowledge and impart superior social, linguistic and intercultural skills.

Many potential employers appreciate international experience, also and especially experience gained by means of postgraduate studies and documented activities abroad. This may even be a prerequisite for a quicker and education-conform start of a career or for promotion to a higher position.

The International Cooperation in Higher Education Department as well as the national Agency Erasmus+ Education at the OeAD manage a whole series of outgoing scholarship programmes.
