Erasmus students have to send their learning agreements before the mobility to the departmental Erasmus coordinator in Salzburg for signature, if possible.

Learning agreements after the mobility are equal to the official University of Salzburg transcript of records, which is downloadable via PLUSOnline in German and English (Studeinerfolgsnachweis).


Language Courses
The University of Salzburg generally expects all incoming students to have sufficient proficiency in German. This is not a required qualification; however, all potential students should be aware that the primary language used for coursework at the University is German. If you are not yet at this level or simply would like to brush up on your German, the University offers German language courses through the Department of German and the University Language Center which are taught according to varying levels of proficiency and run the length of each semester. The courses cost between €45 and €120.

German Language Intensive Courses before Semester starts
The University of Salzburg offers at the beginning of each semester intensive language preparation courses in German at two levels: A1 and B1. For more information on the courses, application and registration, please see top of page!

Health Insurance

Exchange students studying at our University must prove that they have a health insurance valid in Austria. Students from EU/EEA countries are required to possess the European Health Insurance Card. Students from countries that have an insurance agreement with Austria should bring along the "A3 form", which is available at the national health insurance institutions of their home countries. All other students are recommended either to purchase health insurance in their home country or to take out a health insurance policy for students (Studierendenselbstversicherung) with the Salzburger Gebietskrankenkasse (5020 Salzburg, Engelbert-Weiß-Weg 10, Tel.: +43 (0)662 8889-0, sgkk@sgkk.at, www.sgkk.at) upon arrival. The cost of this insurance coverage for students is € 58.39 per month (as of 2018).

Liability and Accident Insurance
Liability and accident insurance is included in the Austrian Student Union Membership Fee of € 19.70, which every student is obliged to pay. This insurance coverage is valid for all activities at the University. If you would like further insurance you will have to research other means of coverage yourself.

Buddy Network

The Buddy-Network is a service offered by the Austrian Students Union (ÖH)_International Branch in Salzburg. You can apply to be matched up with an Austrian "buddy", who will be able to guide and advise you at the beginning of your stay at the University of Salzburg.

If you are interested in participating, the Austrian Student Union_International Branch launched an application/registration process for you via: https://buddynetwork-salzburg.broaddy.com/register/
