6 ECTS = 3 UCalgary units (1 half-course equivalent)

Haskayne undergraduate students must take their core courses at the University of Calgary. Students can take two senior commerce and/or non-commerce options, and/or a maximum of 2 concentration courses (not ACCT/PLMA). They are required to maintain full time status while on exchange, so they must take the equivalent of at least 3 half courses and up to 5 half courses.

The academic year is divided into two semesters.

The first semester, called "winter semester" runs from Oct. - Jan. The second semester, called "summer semester" runs from Feb. - June.

  1. Costs

    Estimated living costs are 800-1000 Euros. For details click here.

    Exchange students pay their tuition and academic fees to the University of Calgary. Haskayne students on Haskayne exchanges pay Haskayne tuition. Other expenses are paid directly to the service provider.

    Also, remember to include things like visas, insurance, vaccinations etc in your budget planning.

  2. Funding

    Did you know that you can take your UCalgary funding with you on exchange? 
    Since you remain a degree seeking student at UCalgary while on exchange you remain eligible for any 
    awards and scholarships you are eligible to receive from the university as well as student loans.

    Our office administers the International Study Travel Grant for students travelling on approved UCalgary study programs that are credit bearing. The amount changes year to year as the money is split evenly between qualified applicants. Students may only receive the study travel grant once. Please see the exchange funding page for more information. Please also see the Haskayne funding page for more information about funding for Haskayne students on Haskayne exchanges.

Exchange students arriving in Vienna have several options to choose from when booking housing for their stay. These options include but are not limited to:

  • residence halls run by OeAD, the main housing provider for students in Austria,
  • or a private flat that can be found for example through the housing platform 
  • Housing Anywhere,
  • or through another third-​party provider.

International travel presents challenges that may not be found when attending classes on campus. There may be a lack of resources, emergency services, hospitals, accessibility issues and/or demands on the physical and the mental self, all of which can challenge individuals when away from their usual support systems and structures. Adequate preparation is essential.

For this reason, it is imperative that you evaluate all aspects of your own physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual condition against the rigors of the particular study abroad program you are selecting. If you are unsure of whether or not this program is a good fit for you and/or if you have any circumstances that could impede your enjoyment of the program, please contact us. Our Study Abroad Team will be happy to assist in finding the best options for you and arrange any supports or accommodations necessary to ensure your success.

Please note if you have or are seeking a certificate from Student Accessibility Services, you should provide this early to your Study Abroad Advisor to ensure that the option that you are seeking can support your needs.
